I know I should finish chapter 22 but daylight savings time is a righteous bitch and I’m tired.

Yeah apologize for having a face so cute & a shirt I need in my closet
Marie waved back at Jordan until the elevator doors closed. A heavy silence fell over the hallway, prompting Marie to close the door and retreat back into their suite. She yawned and shuffled back to her bedroom and collapsed onto her bed, not bothering to pull the blankets over her. She could tell by the darkness beyond her curtains that the sun had not yet risen for the day. She checked the time on her phone. 6:03 AM. I can totally sleep for a few more hours. Marie rolled over and closed her eyes to drift away to sweet unconsciousness.
Marie woke up on her back. She stared at the ceiling, willing her eyes to focus, and raised her arms above her head in a massive stretch. She brought an arm down to check her phone, a habit that her generation would never break. She clicked the side button to wake the screen and squinted to read the time. 6:57 AM. “Are you fucking kidding me?” she asked her empty room. Groaning, she grabbed her glasses off of the bedside table and got out of bed to peek at the world beyond her bedroom curtains. The city was still but the very top edge of the sun could be seen poking above the hills in the distance. Cars would soon be filling the streets, their horns blaring less than friendly greetings to other motorists. Marie closed the curtain, utterly thrilled that she was awake. In her 26 long years on this planet, she had never been a morning person. While she was in college, Marie made sure none of her classes started before noon. There had been a few semesters where music lessons were scheduled at nine in the morning or earlier and Marie made sure to express her displeasure at every lesson, mostly through grunts and annoyed body language directed at her teachers.
She ran her fingers through her wild hair and decided that going back to sleep wasn’t going to happen. I’ll go bug Jordan. If I’m awake, she should be too. She made her way from her room to Jordan’s and knocked on the door. “Hey, crapface. Wake up.” Silence. Marie knocked again. “Dude, come onnnnnn…” she whined. Again, more silence. “Fine. I’m coming in and I’m going to serenade you until you wake up.” Marie opened the door, fully prepared to belt some awful 80s tune, and saw Jordan’s bed empty and made. Marie’s heart sank as she remembered saying goodbye to Jordan earlier that morning. She closed Jordan’s door and slowly lumbered back to her room. Marie wasn’t used to being alone. She and Jordan were always together. Their friends back home joked that they were a packaged deal, you couldn’t get one without the other. It had been that way for as long as Marie could remember. Now she was on her own for the first time in years. It made her uncomfortable and very anxious.
Chapter 19 was all about Jordan’s adventures with Phil. Now, in chapter 20, we get to see what Marie got into while Jordan was gone. In this week’s part, Marie is left on her own until she discovers she needs help with a new song. Who does she call? Bruno, of course! As always, the full part will be posted this Wednesday, March 12th! I do apologize for breaking chapters down into parts but damn it, it’s not my fault they end up so long! If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a message. :)
