I’m seriously alarmed now. Elle hasn’t been in school all week, and it is Wednesday now. If it was anybody else I would just think they were ill, but she hardly ever takes time off and when she does she always calls me. Something must have happened to her, but why hasn’t her mum told me what is going on? Doesn’t she realise that it’s scaring me, too?
Then again, maybe she is just ill. After all, she doesn’t seem to like me very much at the moment, so she might not have bothered to call because of that. It’s happened before, back in year eight, when she didn’t talk to me for a fortnight. We made up in the end. But it was all her fault. Honestly!
