25 April 2008


Two girls sat in a room.

One, snacking on stale breakfast cereal. The other writing some absurd ramblings--absurd, mostly, because she hadn't really planned out what she was going to say.

The first, her name was Julie. Julie Kelly, actually, though most people just called her Jules. The other? Her name was inexplicably boring: Bekah. Yep. That's it. Well, perhaps it wasn't boring, per se. After all, it was spelled differently. Take that, first grade teachers who could never spell her name correctly! She demanded significance! She demanded attention! She demanded...

Bekah got distracted.

She looked up from her writing to stare at Julie, saying one very significant word.


The two of them smiled, laughing at a joke only they could truly understand. Over the past year of living together, I suppose they'd come to the understanding that they were so similar, they might as well have been the same person.

Fridays had suddenly become the most significant day in their weeks.

"Hey, you know what today is?" Julie asked Bekah.


"It's not just Friday, Bekah," Julie said while smiling impishly at her friend. "It's DOCTOR WHO FRIDAY!"

The two of them stared at each other for what seemed like an eternity, and then... then they screamed.

It was going to be a long night.

Well, until Laina got back. Really, Bekah hoped she would return before the end of that week's episode of Doctor Who (they were watching it for the second time that evening). She wanted Laina to witness the excitement that was (GASP) Rose Tyler's return.

This is done, because the Doctor is too riveting a creature to ignore.
Let the swooning ensue.
