Cassie shivered as she walked down the sidewalk. She loved living in New England, except from December to March. Right now it was the middle of February.
It's waaaay to cold, she thought as she picked up her pace. She was on her way to hang out with her three best friends Mandy, Jessica and Nora. They were all spending their day at Mandy's house.
Cassie tried to warm herself by quietly singing her favorite song from her favorite musical:
A pair of new shoes with matching laces.
A permanent box at the Sheepshead Races.
A porcelain tub with boiling water
A Saturday night with the Mayor's daughter.
She was about as big a fan of newsies as someone could get. She and Mandy both were. Jess and Nora really liked it also, but not as much as the other two.
By the time she got to 'I'm one highfalutin' son of a gun' Cassie was walking up to her friend's door. She knocked and a second later it opened. Mandy was standing there.
Mandy had long straight brown hair that went almost to the middle of her back and dark green eyes. She was about 5'5" and had a slim figure. Meaning, she wasn't too skinny, but she was no where near fat at all.
"Hey Cass," she said to the freezing girl. Cassie quickly entered and took of her jacket.
Cassie had bright blonde wavy hair that reached the middle of her back and bright blue eyes. She was 5'3" and pretty skinny, which was something her friends harped on a lot.
"Heeey," she said back, still shivering. "Are Jess and Nora here?"
"Yep, they're in the living room."
The two girls walked in and joined their friends.
"Heya blondie," Jess called out.
Jessica had stick straight jet black hair that went just below her shoulders and dark brown eyes. She was the shortest of them all, 5'1", and had a figure like Mandy's.
"Hi girl," Nora greeted also.
Nora had light brown hair a bit below her shoulders and brow eyes. She was 5'4" and skinny, but not Cassie skinny.
Cassie smiled in response.
"So…what are we doing?" she asked once she could talk normally again.
"I was thinking a movie," Mandy suggested. The others agreed.
"Which movie?" Jess wondered.
Mandy just smiled and looked to Cassie, who caught on and smiled too.
The other two figured out what she meant and groaned. Mandy started complaining, "Guys, no. We already watched Newsies this week!"
"So?" Mandy said back.
"You can never get enough Newsies," Cassie furthered.
"But-" Jess tried to retaliate, but it was too late. Mandy already put in the DVD and pressed play.
When the movie showed the boys in the Lodging House, they heard Cassie squeal, "Newsies! Yay!"
The other three rolled their eyes, but they were also very happy to see the very hot guys.
When the first song started:
That's my cigar!
You'll steal annuder.
Jess looked to her right and saw Mandy and Cassie mouthing along. As much as their love for the movie got on her and Nora's nerves sometimes, even they had to agree, the songs were really good. And they couldn't help but mouth the lyrics to.
The song continued:
Hey bummers, we got work ta do!
Since when did you become me mudder?
Aw, stop ya bawlin!
Hey! Who asked you?
"Ah! Mush shirtless!" Mandy exclaimed when he came on the screen.
"Really? You mean he wasn't shirtless the other thousand times you've seen this?" Nora teased.
Mandy glared lightly at her and said, "Okay, but c'mon! Look at him!"
"I admit, Mush is cute," Cassie commented. "But he's not the best."
"You think there's someone better?"
"Well, let's put it this way; there's a reason Spot rhymes with hot," Cassie told her smiling.
"Really, Spot? You like Spot?" Nora asked, questioningly.
"Well you're both wrong," she continued. "Race is obviously the cutest."
"No way, it's Blink!" Jess argued. Soon, they were getting into a heated debate over which of the guys was the hottest. But it was interrupted when the door blew open. They all turned towards it. Mandy got up and went to close it.
"Wow, a huge windstorm is picking up," she told her friends, while trying to shut the door. She was having some trouble. "Guys, a little help?" she called. The three got up and went to help her. With all four of them pushing, they were able to finally close it.
"That was weird," Cassie stated as they walked back into the living room.
No sooner had they all sat down when the room started to shake.
"Is this an earthquake?" Jess yelled out over the noise to Cassie who used to live in California, so she assumed she knew what one felt like. But she was only three years old when she moved here, so she didn't know.
"Massachusetts doesn't get earthquakes!" Mandy yelled back.
Things started to fall off walks and shelves and the girls huddled together, screaming. Then, just as quick as it started, it stopped. They were still huddled together for a minute before they realized the shaking stopped…and that they were no longer sitting on a soft couch, but on a hard dirty ground. It was also significantly hotter,
Mandy was the first to look up. Her eyes widened as she looked around.
"Guys," she said to her friends, "I don't think we're in Massachusetts anymore."
