I get out of my parents' car and walk into our house. Alison is sitting at the kitchen table with her friends, Naomi and Riley.
"Back from the mental hospital, Courtney?" Alison asks while Naomi and Riley snicker.
"Shut up," I mumble.
"Whatever," she resumes talking while I walk to the stairs. I pause to hear their conversation.
"It's true Naomi, I found the flag. See?" Ali holds out a small piece of fabric and the girls gasp.
Mom walks in, "Ali, it's time for Naomi and Riley to leave."
"Sorry guys, I'll call you later."
"Bye, Alison," they say at the same time. They link arms and walk out the door.
I walk up stairs and I see Ali's 'A for Alison' ring sitting in her room. I make sure nobody was looking and I grab it. I'm not going to the hospital, Alison. You are. I thought and I stuff the ring in my bag.
The time came when I had to leave for the hospital, but I wasn't going so I slip on the 'A for Alison' ring and I walk down stairs. Nobody is down here yet.
A flicker of movement comes from outside. There is four girls out there, apparently talking to each other. I walk outside.
"Spencer, why are you here?" a girl with obviously dyed brown hair and ice blue eyes yells at a girl with dirty blonde hair and green eyes, who I suppose is Spencer.
"Aria, why are you here?" Spencer yells back to the brown haired girl, Aria.
"Well, I came here for the flag. Emily did you too?" A chubby girl with dark brown pulled back into a tight bun turned to a strawberry blonde haired girl, Emily.
I cleared my throat. "Hanna, is that Alison DiLaurentis?" Emily said to the dark brown haired girl.
"Hi," I say to Hanna, Emily, Aria, and Spencer. "What are you guys doing here?"
Spencer steps up, "We just came here for the flag."
Aria nudges Spencer.
"Whatever. You guys should go now," right as they left Mom steps on the porch.
"Courtney, let's go."
"Mom, I didn't know you could get your two daughters mixed up. I'm Ali."
She narrows her eyes, "Well, come in, then. Courtney is going to leave." When she turns her back I smirk.
Dad turns to the real Alison, "C'mon Courtney, time to leave."
"Dad! It's me, Alison!"
He glares at her, "No more games. You're not Ali, now get in the car."
Dad and Jason drag Alison into the car and I race up to her room. I look around to find what I want. Ah ha! Her phone, oh I mean my phone. I dial Naomi and Riley's number.
"Hey girls! My sick sister left. Meet me at King James Mall! Kisses!" I hang up, run into my room, take Jason's money that I took, and bring it back into Alison's room. Ali's purse is sitting on her bed, so I take her wallet and count my money.
Perfect, Ali. I have a total of $756. Shopping Spree.
I open Alison's closet and smile. I love her clothes, but I'm going to get more. Maybe even get a new phone.
I have it all planned out: I have to dump Naomi and Riley, because they know too much about Ali, and find myself new best friends. I got it. Spencer, Aria, Hanna, and Emily.
"Jason!" I yell, "Can you take me to King James Mall in a little bit?"
"Whatever!" he yells back.
I grab Ali's purse, wallet, and phone. I race down stairs and grab Alison's Gucci sunglasses and put them on. I walk to Spencer's house.
Spencer walks out, "Ali, what are you doing here?"
"Well, I'm going to King James Mall and I heard that you, Aria, Hanna, and Emily were going, too! See you there, I got to roll."
"Um, ya see you there?" I feel Spencer's eyes on me when I walk away.
