"Whoa, whoa, whoa. Why you gotta be so harsh, Lace? C’mon. First you threaten our friendship then you tell me I look like I’m gonna poop my pants? Such a bully, I tell you."
"Oh suck it up loser, I’m hardly a bully. I just don’t think I could look you the same after you hurting some puppy. The face thing is a personal problem that you’re going to have to deal with on your own."
"I wouldn’t really! I was messing with him for telling me I couldn’t skate there!" Noah gasped at Lacey’s words, dumbfounded. "I do not! I look terrifying and that’s why he finally left me alone. You can’t tell me otherwise."
"Good. If I find out you were terrorizing some puppies I would disown you as a friend." Lacey laughed at the look of shock on his face. "You really do though, I’m almost positive that he just left you alone cause he thought you were gonna shit yourself."

“Shit, I’m still pretty hungry—-even though you stuffed that sandwich to the brim, but it was delicious.”
"I put my heart and soul into that stupid sandwich and you mean to tell me that you’re still hungry? Go order a pizza then."
"So I told the guy I’d Hulk out and eat his puppies. Maybe it was a little harsh but you gotta admit, I look scary when I do the face." Noah, you’re an idiot.
"Why would you take it out on those innocent puppies huh?" Lacey raised an eyebrow at the boy and shook her head, "you look liked a constipated baboon."
He left the room and talked to their mother, she was reluctant at first but he told her it was for the better. Then he talked to the lab where he worked and promised to work extra hours as soon as they came back, and finally he sat down to buy the tickets, going to bed satisfied. The next morning he walked into his sister’s bedroom and threw a pillow at her. "Svegliarsi svegliarsi principessa! È ora di andare in Italia!"
It was an easier night for Annabelle after talking with her brother and knowing that by tomorrow she would be somewhere in Italy eating pizza with Marcus. Waking up by a pillow being thrown at her Annabelle jumped from her bed a smile spreading from ear to ear. “I have no idea what you said, but I’m excited.” Throwing the blankets off of her Annabelle sat up and up from bed and looked at him with eager eyes, “this is it, we’re really going? Mom said it was alright? Your job? Everything’s set?”
Harry didnt really understand what she had said it being too faded and mixed in with her crying but he settled with what felt right. Kissing her temple he held her close. “You are to me.” He whispered in her ear tangling his fingers in her hair.
Lacey just stayed there for a bit feeling the rise and fall of his chest and listen to his beating heart, bringing her comfort. Pulling away from him just enough so he could read her lips as she talked, knowing her speech would be muffled by sound of her choking back tears. “No one knows Harry, no one, you can’t say anything, you promise?”
It took Harry a bit to process what she had said but it broke his heart once he realized what she meant. “Lacey no.. You are perfect okay? I think you are perfect the way you are. You can’t not eat.” He said with a hint of sadness in his voice. Wiping her tears away he wrapped his arms around her.
"I’m not-" she shook her head the tears still falling as he wrapped his arms around her and she rested her head in his shoulder. "I’m not even close Harry-" she clutched on to the fabric of his shirt taking comfort in the safety she felt with his arms around her.
Pushing her hair back gently he nodded to her. “It must be big if it bothers you this much.. I-I will tell you a secret if you just tell me please? I will never mention it to anyone. Lace you are one of my best friends I just want to help.”
The words were choked in her throat but when she back at him she knew she could trust him, “I have to be perfect, you don’t understand, I can’t- I can’t disappoint her, I have to be perfect- I don’t- I can’t - eat. I don’t. It’s not worth it. I have to be perfect.” By now the tears were falling rapidly down her cheeks, hoping he would keep her secret.
