Slice of the Past

Know how I said in my last post that I ran into Derrick after almost 7 years? Well here’s how that went down…

A few nights ago Claire and I were unpacking boxes of our stuff and still trying to set everything up in the apartment. Since we only just moved in, we had a lot of work to do…we have SO much stuff!

We were working on unpacking kitchen utensils when Claire suddenly stopped, “We haven’t stopped unpacking all day and it’s 12:50am…let’s get something to eat.”

I gave a slight laugh, “We don’t have anything to eat in here. We’ve been too busy trying to get settled to go food shopping.”

“That’s why I said let’s get something to eat…let’s go out right now and find a place that stays open all night!” I raised an eyebrow at her over excitement. “What’s the look for, Mass?”

“Someone’s a little too excited just for going out to get food…” I laughed.

“Well all we’ve been doing lately is unpacking. I just want to get out! I need to see the outside world!” Leave it to Claire to fake being overdramatic. I shook my head at my best friend and gave her a questioning look.

“What place is even open at this time?” Claire smiled, already putting her flip-flops on, and started walking out of the kitchen.

“Slice of Heaven!” She grabbed the keys and I smiled at the memories we had there with everyone.

“I could SO go for some cheese fries right now!” I realized just how hungry I was. After I said that, I heard Claire gasp dramatically “What?”

“The Massie Hope Block wants cheese fries?!” I couldn’t help but laugh at the fake surprised look on her face. Every once in awhile when I said I wanted something unhealthy, like fries or even gummies, Claire would do this because of the way I used to be when we were younger and didn’t eat that kind of stuff. I once again shook my head at the girl in front of me and grabbed the throw pillow that was near me.

She tried to get out of the way in time, but failed causing us both to laugh again, “Come on let’s go already! I want those cheese fries!” and out the door we went.

We were happy to see that not only was the Slice of Heaven still definitely open, but it was also pretty much empty…except for a couple of good looking guys.

While Claire was ordering our food I was trying to sneak peeks at the cute guys, that was cut short when I noticed Claire trying to get my attention, “What?”

“You know that one guy over there has been staring at you for awhile…” I looked over to the guy she was talking about. Wow was he cute! But he had a surprised/shocked look on his face…I wondered why…

“Block?” The cute guy spoke up, still looking at me with a surprised look. It took me a few seconds to realize he just said my last name, but there was only ever one person who called me by my last name and that was…

“Derrick…” I whispered with a look of surprise coming out on my own face. I heard Claire give a small gasp next to me, this time it wasn’t an overdramatic fake one.

I was still in shock over seeing Derrick for the first time in years, that I didn’t know what to do. It was like my feet were stuck to the ground. We just kept staring at each other, then I noticed him start to walk over to me.

So I did the first thing I could think of. I took our food, grabbed Claire’s arm, and turned and ran out the door back to our apartment before he had the chance to reach me.

I already know I’m going to run into him again…and probably sooner than I’d like since he knows I’m back now. I just have no idea why I reacted like that…I usually can keep my calm…

I can’t believe what Derrick looks like now though! Seriously guys he’s really good looking…

Lots of Love,

Finally Back in Westchester

After almost 7 years, I’m finally back home in Westchester! As you know I moved to England during eighth grade because my dad got a job over there. At first I really missed New York and the Pretty Committee of course, but I eventually started to really love England. Our house was nice, the stores and fashion they had there was ah-mazing, and the guys were cute! 😉

Although I grew to love it in England…there were a few things that happened that weren’t so great.

When I first moved out there, I would always be in constant contact with TPC. We would text, Facebook, Skype, and I even went back to Westchester during Christmas break a year after I moved there. After awhile though, the girls started getting really busy with school, different activities, family life, and of course the timezone became a problem. We eventually drifted apart and stopped talking.

The only person from Westchester I continued to talk to was Claire. We became closer because of this and she even came out to visit me a few times a year. She truly became my best friend that I could tell everything to.

Which is why I was glad to still have her…especially after what happened with James.

James is the guys I met on the plane to London. He was sooo cute and he had dimples! Hermia, the psychic, actually predicted that I would meet him and that he would be apart of my new life in London. Well we both went to the same school and started becoming friends when he eventually asked me out! That was seriously one of the happiest days of my life.

So we were together for a long time. We became close and not only was he my boyfriend, but he was my best friend too.

For the first time, I actually knew what it felt like to be truly in love…too bad he didn’t feel the same…

At the end of junior year there was a party that the entire junior class went to, to celebrate the end of the school year and the fact that we would be seniors the next year. James said he wouldn’t be able to go, so I told him that I wasn’t going to go either. I really didn’t want to go without him. But later I decided to just go and have some fun. Guess who was there? That’s right…James. With another girl. Turns out he was cheating on me for a long time.

I was so upset and hurting after that. I ran home to call Claire all about it. She told me that she would come and visit me that summer so wouldn’t have to sit around and cry over James.

It didn’t take too long to get over him once Claire was there. We had the best time ever! It was just what I needed.

But the end of the summer was coming fast. I didn’t want my best friend to leave and she didn’t either. That’s when we got the idea to ask our parents if she could stay in England with me for senior year and guess what? They agreed to it!

Senior year was definitely the best year ever because I had my best friend there to experience it with me. Claire later decided to stay in England with me for another year and go to college there.

However, after our first year of college we decided to move back to Westchester and finish college here. We only just got back a few weeks ago and found a lovely apartment to share.

I still haven’t ran into the girls yet, but I did see someone I have’t spoken to since I left…Derrick!

I’ll need a separate blog post for that one…

Lots of Love,

Massie Hope ❤

A Note from the person behind this account:

I made Massie older because I always wondered what she would be like and if she changed a little. I also wanted to do something different. So this Massie is almost 20 and she has changed. She doesn’t have the snobbiness anymore, she’ll wear anything as long as she finds it cute, but she’s still the same Massie we all know and love.

Also if anyone wants to be older versions of the other girls let me know! It’ll be all up to you to decide how they turned out.

Ready to start posting!

I finally have my blog finished…well almost finished. I still have to add things under the fashion & beauty tab and the massie’s picks of the month tab, but that can be done later.

 

I’ll have my first real post up later today!
