A/N: I'm so sorry to those out there reading my story. I know I promised this to be an awesome chapter. Well, my friends thought it was. But it's not the big one I promised. I just felt that it was too long to be put into one single chapter. I have no decided to cut it in half. And then the rest of the story will continue after that.
Sorry to disappoint. But the next chapter will be up soon. :D
Lulu Punchalower wasn't sure what to do next. I mean, she could've easily gone downstairs and watched TV or something, but she had bigger problems to take care of at the moment. There was someone in the Punchalower household that didn't belong. And, no, it wasn't Theo, her brother, or her parents. Okay, maybe it was also her brother...and Theo.
Lulu exited her room and walked down the second-floor hallway. Her brother was in the next room playing his loud, obnoxious video games. Her parents were in the next room doing something Lulu didn't care about. Theo was in the room after that one, still sleeping, of course. Next was the room that belonged to Garrison, who she refused to speak to earlier. And finally, the other extra room that contained the one person Lulu wanted to hurt so badly. It wasn't normal for her to feel this way. Sure, she would occasionally threaten someone with violence, but this was different. The girl in this room made her want to scream and yell even louder than ever. This particular girl would be the one to drive Madeleine into hysterics of weeping and crying.
And, no, it was not Hyacinth.
Madeleine Masterson's parents stared at the young girl, feeling ever so confused. Rhode Island? Why Rhode Island? Yet, somehow, the mention of the particular place seemed to remind the couple of someone. Oh yes! Lulu Punchalower, who they heard so much about, lived in Providence, Rhode Island!
"You wish to see Lulu again, don't you?" Mrs. Masterson said with a smile.
"You know me too well, mummy," Madeleine said with a grin.
Her father seemed to like the idea, for he said, "Well, of course you can go, Maddie! But we won't be able to stay there with you, you know that. I'm sure Lulu's parents will take good care of you. But promise me a few things. One, you won't be any trouble to the Punchalowers. Two, you won't get into any trouble. And three...have a great time."
"Oh and make sure you're always safe!" Mrs. Masterson added.
Madeleine looked at her parents with happiness and hugged both of them.
"Thank you! I promise I'll be good and won't get into trouble. I promise that to both of you!" the over-joyed girl exclaimed.
"We know," her parents kindly said in unison.
It was now eight o' clock. The sun had already set, and Garrison, Theo, the person that did not belong, and the Punchalowers were becoming extremely bored.
"Where is she?" Mrs. Punchalower asked in irritation.
"Patience, dear," Mr. Punchalower chided her gently.
Lulu rolled her eyes and said, "Can't you just wait a little longer? I'm sure she's exiting the plane now."
Theo gave a dramatic sigh and said, "That's what you think! She's probably still above the Atlantic Ocean! Oh dear...You don't supposed something happened to her on the way here? What if the plane crashed? What if she started losing oxygen? Or worse...What if they ran out of food?"
"Theo quit being a ninny," Lulu said with clear annoyance.
"Oh don't be so harsh, Lulu. He was only concerned about Monica," the unwanted person said.
"It's Madeleine," Lulu said through gritted teeth, trying so hard not to strangle the other girl. At home, when her parents weren't watching, Lulu wouldn't have given a second though about strangling the girl who didn't belong. But since they were at the airport waiting for Maddie to arrive, she couldn't do it, especially with all the witnesses and the security guards.
"Lulu, chill out already," Garrison said, snapping the strawberry-blonde girl out of her thoughts about strangling.
"Yeah, yeah, whatever," Lulu muttered.
Just then, everyone heard the voice of someone they absolutely were thrilled to hear.
"Hello, everyone! I'm sorry you had to wait so long. The plane ride was a bit longer than I imagined it would be," Madeleine Masterson said with a broad smile.
Mr. and Mrs. Punchalower were greeted with handshakes and, also, a bear-hug from Theo.
Madeleine was greeted with handshakes from Mr. and Mrs. Punchalower, hugs from Lulu and Garrison, a bear-hug from Theo, and a quite unfriendly welcome from the unwanted person.
"Hello, Maya. Do all British people dress like that?" the mysterious girl whispered with distaste so no one else could hear.
"Oh hello...I don't think we've met before. My name is actually Madeleine, and, no, not all British people dress like I do," the young girl said, looking down at her clothes to see if there was something wrong with them. No, nothing wrong. She was wondering who on earth was this unfriendly sounding girl and why was she here. But when she finally got a good look at the girl, she was awed while also starting to become worried.
"What are you staring at?" the other girl whispered to Madeleine, feeling annoyed.
The girl was simply two words: very pretty. No, extremely pretty to be exact. The girl's facial features looked as if they were sculpted by Michelangelo, the silvery blonde hair that cascaded down the girl's back was simply stunning, the pouty lips looked as if they were naturally pink, the girl's ice blue eyes stared like daggers into Madeleine's simple blue eyes, and the girl had the most beautiful shade of pale skin that looked not to pale yet not to dark and super soft like baby skin. The girl would have been the ideal girlfriend for any guy, except for the fact that the girl's personality seemed to be one like a witch's to Madeleine.
"Why won't you -? Hey, Garrison!" the angel-faced girl said as Garrison made his way to the two girls.
"Right back at you, Ashley," the fifteen-year-old boy said with a smile. He then turned his attention to Madeleine. "I really missed you, Maddie! It's been like forever to me!"
Madeleine felt herself blush bright red. "I really missed you, too, Garrison."
Garrison grinned and said, "Glad to hear that. Well, I see you've met Ashley, my—"
"Who wants to go home now?" Lulu said loudly. She had been eavesdropping on the conversation. There was no way Garrison would hurt Maddie this way. He knows she'll just lose it...What was wrong with him?
"I do!" Lulu's parents and Theo said in unison.
"Great! Now let's go!" Lulu said with fake enthusiasm, grabbing Madeleine's hand and leading her far away from Garrison.
"Goodbye, Maddie! We talked with Mr. and Mrs. Punchalower and we shall pick you up in seven weeks!" Mrs. Masterson called to her daughter.
"Don't forget to call regularly!" Mr. Masterson shouted before heading back to wait for their flight back to London, England.
"I won't forget!" Madeleine called back, waving goodbye to her parents.
The taxi ride back to Lulu's house was uneventful...and extremely dangerous to Theo.
"Can you at least go ten miles below the speed limit?" the still dramatic boy screeched.
The taxi driver sighed exasperatedly and said, "For the last time, I said no!"
"But do you realize that we can all be killed? And why are you talking to me? Focus on driving!"
"I would if you would just be quiet for ten minutes!"
Lulu began to grow tired of the boring argument.
"Will you guys just shush up for a while? You're giving me a headache," the impatient freckle-faced girl said.
That, unfortunately, didn't go out as Lulu wished it had.
First, the taxi driver and Theo kept bickering back and forth, giving Mrs. Punchalower migraines. Which in turn made Mr. Punchalower become annoyed about his wife's complaining and he then accused Lulu of this. Lulu then kept arguing with her father, which would happen at least once a day. Then, Lulu and Theo started arguing, which brought Garrison into the disagreement somehow. Ashley kept shooting dirty looks at poor Madeleine when Garrison wasn't looking. That led Madeleine on the verge of losing it and shouting at the horrible girl.
Fortunately, Madeleine Masterson knew better.
Calm down, she thought, everything is going to be alright, Maddie. Just hope that we're almost at Lulu's house...
And that's when the strangest thing happened.
Lulu Punchalower gave a girly, high-pitched, ear-piercing shriek.
