So sorry that this is like over a week late! School started and it has been crazy! Anyways, anyone watched the Teen Choice Awards? It was ah-mazing! I luh-ved the opening, “Best Song Ever” is literally the best song ever. And Lea Michele’s speech was so touching. And I am so happy to say that One Direction has won every single category that they were nominated in! Isn’t that in-credible!
Anyways, onto the post!
Previously on XOXO The Pretty Committee:
“Do you know what time of year it is?” – Massie
“It is the time for passing down the keys to the secret room.” – Massie
“Where’s the key?” – Blair
“Did you really think that it is that easy?” – Massie
“We had to work for our keys, so you do too.” – Alicia
“What do you mean ‘work’ exactly?” – Ella
“Do you think that it’s a joke?” Erica asked the rest of the Belles’ from Blair’s pale pink bed. The Belles’ were all relaxing in Blair’s bedroom. Liana was painting her nails on Blair’s carpet floor, Lauren was choosing music from her iPod in Blair’s speakers, Ella was playing with Coco, Blair’s white cat, while Blair’s was at her desk, checking her email on her white iMac. “They haven’t contacted us in, like, forever.” Erica continued.
“They didn’t sound like they were kidding about the secret room.” Ella said while rubbing Coco behind her ears. “We all know that it is real, and that the eighth grade alphas always find the new owners.”
Ping! “EMG! I just got an email from Massie.” Blair said from behind her computer. The rest of the Belles’ dashed to her side. Blair clicked on the email.
From: Massie Block
To: Blair Evans
Subject: Your first challenge…
Get ready, cause your first challenge is about to begin. We believe gossip is a great way for alphas to keep control, but if rumors start about you, that is something you have to control. I suggest you look at this: OCDgossip.com
XOXO, The Pretty Committee
“What does she mean?” Liana asked.
“Let’s see.” Blair said and logged on to her OCD school account. She opened the school gossip page. Her jaw dropped when she saw what was on it. “Eh! Ma! Gawd! I can’t believe it!”
“What?” Lauren asked as she craned her neck to see the computer screen.
“Did you hear that the Belles’ have two boyfriends? One in Westchester and the others in the Hamptons. I wonder what will happen now. Zero boyfriends perhaps?” Blair read from the screen.
“WHAT!!!” Erica, Liana, Lauren and Ella all screeched at the same time.
“We do not!” Ella said. “Oh no, what will Cory think?”
Ping! Another email came into Blair’s inbox.
From: Massie Block
To: Blair Evans
Subject: You better get started…
You better get started…
XOXO, The Pretty Committee
“What do you think she means?” Lauren asked. She looked at each of the Belles’.
“She means that we have to kill the rumor.” Blair answered.
“How are we supposed to do that?” Lauren retorted and frowned like she always does when she was thinking.
“Well, duh, we have to prove that we don’t have two boyfriends.” Erica said. “We just have make sure that Alex, James, Kyle, Luke and Cory know that we don’t have another boy in the Hamptons.”
Suddenly Blair’s phone lit up, signalling a text message.
Alex: We need to talk.
“Oh no, Alex just texted me saying we have to talk. It’s def because of that rumor.” Blair told the Belles’.
Blair: I need 2 talk 2 u too. Can u round up the guys and go 2 the Starbucks in the mall, the Belles’ and i will meet u there.
“Oh there, I see the boys.” Liana said as she waved at Kyle, her boyfriend. Alex, James, Kyle, Luke and Cory were sat at a big round table in Starbucks with their drinks, and the Belles’ drinks too. The Belles’ walked towards the boys. Blair’s mind was full of thoughts on what to say to Alex. She hadn’t really planned that part out. But she was running out of time as she stopped in front of the table.
“Hey.” Alex said and gave a small half-hearted smile.
“Hi.” Blair replied and sat down. So did the rest of the Belles’. An awkward silence settled over them. Blair knew she had to say something.
“We need to talk.” Blair and Alex said at the same time. They laughed a bit.
“You first.” Alex said, being the gentleman he is.
“We know you saw the rumor.” Blair said straightforwardly and stared directly into Alex’s eyes. His sheepish look gave it away. “And it’s not true. We would never cheat on you guys!” She directed this to all of the guys, but what she meant was I would never cheat on you.
“How do we know that you aren’t lying?” Kyle asked, his cold eyes staring straight at Liana.
“Do you think that we would ever lie?” Blair asked.
“Uh, yeah!” All of they guys scoffed and said. Actually Blair couldn’t defend herself on that. She did lie.
“Look, how do we prove to you that we didn’t cheat on you? And you should know better! You were with us in the Hamptons the entire summer!” Blair said, changing the subject.
“Show us your phone.” James said like it was the simplest thing in the world.
“What!” Lauren said.
“Well if you have nothing to hide, you won’t mind.” Cory said, backing up his friend James.
“Fine.” Blair said annoyed and handed her phone to Alex. Erica handed hers to James, Liana’s to Kyle, Lauren’s to Luke and Ella’s to Cory. The Belles’ watched as the boys looked over their texts, contacts and photos.
“Who’s Mason?” Kyle asked.
“He’s my acting coach.” Liana replied, annoyed of having her phone interrogated.
The boys finished looking and handed the girls’ phones back to them.
“See, I told you there was no one else.” Blair said and tucked her phone back into her clutch. She frowned.
“Look, I’m sorry I didn’t believe you. I was a bit scared that I was losing you.” Alex said, looking directly at Blair.
“You don’t have to worry about losing me, you’re my boyfriend.” Blair smiled despite of herself as she said that.
“I’m so glad that you believe us now! But we still have to prove it to the rest of the school.” Ella said.
“What do you mean?” Cory asked her, taking her hand into his.
“She’s talking about the challenge to the Secret Room that Massie gave us.” Blair said and she explained the entire story to the guys.
“I know what we can do, but we have to do it in front of almost the entire student body of OCD and Briarwood.” Alex said.
“How about Lucy’s birthday party?” Ella suggested. Lucy was the newly elected student body president of OCD. “We all got invitations, and the entire school will be there. Plus it’s tomorrow, so the quicker we do it, the closer we will be to get the keys.”
“Great idea Ella! And what better place to look for outfits!” Blair said and gestured to the mall around them and smiled.
The Belles’ stepped into the grand Westchester Country Club ballroom. A huge crystal chandelier dangled from the ceiling. Over 15 large tables were scattered all along the room with crisp white tablecloths and a small bouquet of white and baby pink magnolias. There was a huge dance floor in the middle of the ballroom, packed with girls and boys from OCD and Briarwood. The DJ booth was at a right corner of the room. The DJ was spinning light, upbeat tracks like “Live While We’re Young” and “Call Me Maybe”. The Belles’ saw tons of people they recognised, even the Pretty Committee were there, dancing with Landon, Josh, Derrick, Dempsey and Cam.
The Belles’ searched the room to find the guys. They finally found them at a table near the dance floor, the Belles’ are the alphas of their grade anyways. As they walked towards their table, people stopped whatever they were doing and either stared at them or whispered with their friend, about the rumor no doubt. Blair and the rest of the girls kept their head up high and strut even more confidently towards the guys.
When they reached the table, everyone was staring. They stopped gossiping and even the DJ stopped the music. Everyone was wondering what was going to happen.
“Hey Blair.” Alex said as he put his hand around her waist. The rest of the boys greeted the Belles’ and did the same. Then at almost the exact same time, the boys all kissed their girlfriends on the lips. It wasn’t those gentle sweet pecks, it wasn’t a super deep make-out session kiss either. It was a romantic kiss, like they were completely in love. When the boys pulled away, all eyes were still on them.
Then everyone turned around and started to do whatever they had stopped doing. Blair smiled.
“We did well didn’t we?” Alex asked and winked at Blair.
“It was perfect, but I hope it wasn’t all an act.” Blair said playfully.
“It was definitely not an act.” Alex said and they both smiled.
“So we’re done right? The rumor is gone?” Lauren asked Blair.
“Not yet, just to be sure, we need a new rumor. Any gossip Erica?” Blair replied.
“Ahv-course I do! Shaylene totally got a nose job this summer, it had a curve to it before, but now it’s straight. And I know she hasn’t told anyone cause she always says she hates people who got nose jobs.” Erica said with a devilish grin.
“Perfect.” Blair said and took out her phone. She quickly uploaded the gossip to OCDgossip. Right after, over a hundred phones beeped as people started to read the new gossip.
“There, done! Now we can enjoy the party! Let’s go dance!” Blair said and grabbed Alex’s arm and pulled him onto the dance floor.
It was getting late and people had already started to leave, there were only 30 or so people on the dance floor, the Pretty Committee and the Belles’ were part of them.
“Do you think we should leave soon?” Liana asked the other Belles’. “My feet are getting sore.”
“Sure, let’s go say goodbye, then we can go back to my place for a sleepover.” Blair said as she lead the way to were Lucy was standing.
After they said goodbye, and hugged Lucy Happy Birthday one last time, they headed towards the big double doors. When they were five steps away from the doors, someone stepped in front of them. It was Alicia.
“Here.” Alicia said and handed Erica an envelope and then Alicia was gone again. The Belles’ stared after her in curiosity.
