A/N:

You may have noticed I'm trying to use authentic American slang from the books. If there's anything I get wrong or could improve on, please tell me in your review

I don't own anything you recognise

Please review. On chapter one I had 77viewers, but only two reviews. So thanks, iimaisa and AshleyAlien1408! Even if you have no account here, or are too lazy to log in, all it takes is one click on the box at the bottom of this page, and a few words, to keep me writing!

Yeah, and sorry for the gap. I had writer's block for chapter 2, but I wrote that earlier, so here is chapter 1, for now I have no excuse for not posting it!

I know this is a small chapter, in my defence, I can't write long chapters, they don't like me; and it looks a lot longer in my notebook. Also I figure more frequent, short updates are better than epics once a year? Now I need to stop, the author note's already longer than the chapter o_0

It was October 8th, exactly a month after the girls' annual late-night celebration at Gilda's (A/N: We are never told the girls' birthdays, so I used my artistic license), and Tibby decided to put her plan into action. She was at Lena's house, alone. Effie and Mrs Kaligaris had gone shopping, whilst Bee and Carmen were out choosing some new cleats (A/N: Soccer boots) for Bee, but Lena and Tibby were broke, so they'd opted to stay at Lena's. Well, the girls suspected that Lena wasn't 'broke' as such, just withdrawing from life.

Anyway, it was just Lena and Tibby at the Kaligaris place, and Lena was predictably moping.

"Um, Lena?"

"Yes, Tibs?"

"Um, you need to stop moping, You're not the only one to have lov- lost this summer, you know?" Curses; thank Jesus she'd managed to stop herself. None of her friends knew about her recent… revelation yet. None of them needed to know. Except maybe… Lena. She desperately wanted… needed Lena to know, needed Lena to feel the same.
