Burgundy’s friend, Rosy

Part of Pupola’s 5 Day Visit of Never One’s Characters

Rosy: *reading a book*

Pupola: Hi, Rosy. Thanks for joining me today.

Rosy *no response*

Pupola: Rosy?

Rosy: Huh, when did you get here?

Pupola: I was always here.

Rosy: Oh.

Pupola: No biggie. You were enjoying a book.

Rosy: It’s a series. I read the first book for a school assignment and got hooked. This is the last book! *hopping happily in her seat*

Pupola: Don’t you just love that when things like that happen?

Rosy: Yeah!

Pupola: How would your family describe you?

Rosy: A crazy teen.

Pupola: And your friends?

Rosy: You’re a crazy teen too? Welcome to the club.

Pupola: Aww, that’s soo cute. What do you like to do for summer vacation?

Rosy: Stay up late and sleep late in the morning. Hang out with friends. Sleepovers.
Jump in the water. Run around crazy in my home street, of course not alone.

Pupola: Yeah.

Rosy: *stares and blinks*

Pupola: Okay…what is your favorite color?

Rosy: Pink and tangerine for now. Probably will change to black and mocha soon.

Pupola: Why?

Rosy: Pink and tangerine are slowly fizzing out.

Pupola: What is the wildest thing you have done? Something you haven’t told your parents.

Rosy: Uhh…well..I was dared to wear my old Halloween costume from fifth grade, Medusa. The costume and snake headpiece barely fit and pinched my skin! I had to run around in my neighborhood alone. It was 2 am and a sleepover. My friends stood outside and laughed their heads off. They did keep watch, so I wouldn’t become roadkill by an oncoming car.

Pupola: *laughing* That was nice of them.

Rosy: Yeah. *giggling*

Pupola: I guess, we’ll wrap it up here. I had a few questions left but that’s okay. Thanks Rosy!

Rosy: You too! I’m going to enjoy finishing up my book all cozy in my backyard. See you later. *waves and departs*

Pupola: One day to go!
