You would not believe how long it took me to take these pictures. It must have been cold out there or something, because my fingers feel like blocks of ice. Anyway, I’m currently sitting in front of the wood-stove, sipping hot chocolate, and reading The Hobbit =)
I was the first one up the next morning. I’d been having a nightmare about Venus pounding me into dust during The BFF Wars. But, of course, that wasn’t what The BFF Wars was about. So that hopefully wouldn’t happen.
I rolled out of bed and woke up Charlotte.
Then I shook Venus and Jules’s bunk-bed to get them up.
After drowsily tugging on our shoes, we trudged outside to the filming location.
The minute Ashley saw us, she exclaimed, “Let the Wars BEGIN!”
The first part of the Wars was hair styling. Jules and I sat down on the bench, and Charlotte and Venus took out our current hairstyles and brushed out the tangles.
Behind us was a table with lots of colorful hair accessories spread out on it.
“GO!” Sianne, Teresa, and Ashley cried, and the camera’s started filming.
Charlotte started braiding two little braids on either side of my head.
But when she glanced over and saw what Venus was doing, she knew that what she was doing wasn’t going to be enough. Although the hairstyle wasn’t complicated, it was impressive, which was what the judges were looking for.
Charlotte snapped a pink hair-extension into my hair and started braiding.
By the time Charlotte was done, Jules was already working on Venus’s hair. I jumped up and got to work. Or, tried to, really. I didn’t do much to my hair other than ponytails, braids, and the occasional bun, so I really had no idea what-so-ever what to do to Charlotte’s hair.
Jules was an expert at the art of hair-styling. With as much hair as she had, she had to know some styles. I wished again that she was still my best friend.
I gritted my teeth. I couldn’t copy Jules — it was against the rules. So what was I going to do?
Jules was snapping some colorful hair-ties into Venus’s short black hair.
And then it came to me: color! I grabbed a blue extension and started weaving it through Charlotte’s hair.
Just my luck, we were out of time. I didn’t get to finish Charlotte’s hairstyle. We all lined up and the judges inspected our hair, front and back.
I knew what their decision would be even before they said it.
“And the winner is . . . Team Jules!” Sianne announced.
Jules and Venus cheered.
Then we all headed back to our room.
