::Natalie sat in the corner of Borders in a squishy green armchair. She tried to concentrate on her summer reading book, "Othello", but it was really hard to get through. She eyed the SparkNotes display.::

No one would know. People get by on these things all the time.

::Natalie rose from her chair and walked towards the shelf.::

::Mackenzie was reading the back cover of "The Joy Luck Club" as she walked through Borders. She had stopped in to pick up a few cds and her summer reading books for English- along with "The Joy Luck Club," she had to read "The Chosen" and "On The Road."::

This looks interesting... not.

::Mackenzie was making her way to the registers when she bumped into someone and dropped her stack of books and cds.::

"Ow! Jesus!"

::Mack dropped to her knees and began picking her things up. She looked up and saw Natalie, who she had had a few classes with last year.::

"Sorry... I wasn't looking."

"That's fine, I wasn't watching."

::Mackenzie shoveled everything into her arms and stood up.::

"Really?" ::makes a face:: "I wasn't really looking forward to reading it. Gahhhhhhh."

Oh. It's pretty boring in the beginning, but it gets better.

How was your summer?

"Fun. I was a camp counselor, then I came back, like, two weeks ago. So now I'm back until school starts. What about you?"

::Mackenzie flips her sunglasses off her eyes and shifts the books over to her right arm as she talks to Natalie.::

::figets a bit with her book::

My mom wanted to travel, so we went to London for two weeks, and then to Ireland for another week. Then down to my parents' beach house for the last month. So, I haven't really been home lately. Are you looking forward to school?

Well, that was a stupid question. Who would look forward to school? Except me.

"Umm... kinda?"

What kind of question was that? Who looks forward to school? Except for smart people.

"Travelling sounds fun. Are you in lots of AP classes this year?"

Well, Mack, duh. She actually looks forward to school.

Shit. Mackenzie Dalton thinks I'm an idiot. Way to go, Natalie.

Just a few. English, History, and Bio. What about you?

Should I lie and pretend that I actually care?

"One or two. Bio and History. Maybe we'll have a few classes together or something."

I'm such a good liar. Shoulda taken drama- I can pretend that I'm interested very well.

"That's me."

::Mack puts her items on the counter and pays. When the cashier hands her her bag, she turns to Natalie.::

"So I'll see you at Drew's party Friday? You're going, right?"

Yeah...I know it's Shakespeare, and it's supposed to be a classic, blah blah. I hate it. There's no way I can understand it.

So, how was your summer?

"Right now I'm wishing it was longer, but it was pretty good. I went to Long Island with my parents to visit friends, and did a summer program at Harvard. What about you?"

That sounds like fun. The Harvard thing sounds very cool.

We traveled around Europe for a bit, and then down to the beach.

::remembering her conversation with Mackenzie:: Hey, are you going to Drew's party this weekend?

We went to London for two weeks, and then after that Ireland for another week. My mom has family in Ireland, so we really just did family stuff out in the country. London was so cool, though. I think I'd like to go back, maybe even live there one day.
