Another senior year, another DeLoughrey… well, Taylor-DeLoughrey playing the infamous game. A reason why Phoebe was so excited to skip a year, being a good students she obviously is, and experience something more exciting. Having a mother who won so many years ago (Elodie you’re getting old), only made this girl more interested in the game, knowing she had to do the same thing… or just wanting to because a little extra fun never hurt nobody. How bad can it actually be?
Pretty bad, but Phoebe didn’t know that… no, Phoebe never listened to her parents telling her about it because when does she listen to anything people are saying, or most importantly asking her to do… in this case not to do? Simple answer - never. But who is going to feel bad for a girl currently throwing clothes on top of a glass bottle she was trying to hide?
”AMIE,” she called out her, you won’t believe it, identical twin sister as she closed the drawer and took a final look at herself in the mirror. A slight smirk on her lips, fixing a little white dress she picked out for her very first senior party. Now Amelia… what can I say about her? Just that the two of them looked identical but weren’t the same, at all - that’s why Phoebe stormed into her room without knocking hoping Amie changed her mind and decided to come along but no. The girl was in the most comfortable position reading a… God… damn… book. ”You’re unbelievable,” a dramatic sigh and whine leaving Phoebe’s lips, similar to a little kid not getting what they want before she turned around and walked away, leaving the door open. Letting her black boots echo their presence against the wooden stairs, there was one thing Phoebe knew she couldn’t do tonight - drive. For obvious reasons, it’s a party after all, isn’t it? ”Dad, can you drive-” walking towards the living room she immediately saw her father feeding little Lexie, obviously being preoccupied and reminding her that mom was on a business trip and he had to focus on the little one. ”Nothing,” whispering and actually not being that bothered with it, she quickly called herself an uber before walking towards her little sister. ”Hi cutiiiie.” Pinching her chubby cheeks, there was a big smile on Phoebe’s lips; love for her family always being unconditional. You might not think that because of her last interaction with her twin sister but she loved her. Loved all of them more than anything else. ”PLEASE tell Xander not to touch my bag of chips,” yet another loud sigh leaving her lips as she looked up at her father, taking a few steps back just so she could look up the stairs and shout, ”You heard that, BROTHER? He is not even here, is he?” Last words directed at Riker, guilty smile appeared on her lips. ”You need to stop letting him go out this late… Anywayyy, I don’t know when I’ll be back. Bye,” with that same smile she turned around, leaving before he got a chance to respond to her.
You know what made her more excited about the party? Tasks. Her very first tasks. Fun tasks she had no problem doing and was, in fact, looking forward to that. And they definitely weren’t as bas as her parents made them be… So standing outside, in front of the place, there was a slight smirk on her face as she was looking down at the phone. A smirk that grew once she brought her gaze up and saw Elio in a car. Ah… Elio. Her friend… she had a small crush on no matter how many times he said no to her. Listen, if Phoebe wants something she’ll get it one way or another. But it’s not that she wanted him… here’s the thing, she doesn’t want anyone she just wants a little fun before she finds something more interesting. Fixing her hair, she quickly smiled and waved at him only to have that smile disappear just as quick. First because she was completely confused but then because she was completely disgusted and understood why he had that almost uncomfortable look on his face. And she showed her disgust, she made sure to show it as no one else but Paige who straightened up looked at her. There were many thoughts that went through her mind like, ew, out of everyone it had to be Paige, why in the hell would you do that here where everyone could see? But also - isn’t he with Lenora? Still, this ruined her night and before anything else could happen she quickly walked away from the car and went straight in where the party was waiting for her.
Phoebe immediately scanned the place looking for one person and one person only and the moment she saw him she walked over to him, grabbing his upper arm. ”MY EYES… Aj… I just saw…” she started, pretending to gag for a second. ”I can’t even say it… I need a drink, come here,” with that she let her hand fall down to meet his before dragging him towards the table with all the drinks. Grabbing one cup, she downed that drink in a second trying hard not to make a face. ”I just saw someone… Turning to face him, instead of finishing that sentence she attempted to play it all. You know… with her hands and mouth, not really caring about people around them that might be looking. ”I’m scarred for life but hey, at least you look nice,” dramatically ending that story without giving him more details, she tried to block that scene out of her mind by talking about literally anything else. And could anyone blame her for having a good looking best friend?
