“The most likely outcome is Aria smelled us coming and informed Lisa, who still does not want to engage with us. It is my opinion we should not pursue the matter until Lisa feels ready; she deserves as much,” said Medea, I could tell she was sad.
Jill’s friends sat on the table leaving me the only one standing. Erika greeted all the girls in the table while Carmen didn’t bother and the Medea girl acted like a shy grade-schooler, avoiding showing her face and clinging to Erika like her life depended on it.
“Melanie is our assigned maid. If you wish to place an order, please go through her,” Enriqueta said like it was her business. If Aria wasn’t here, I wasn’t a maid anymore.
“I’m sorry, Mel. We’re starving. Can you get us some food?” Jill asked. I was a maid again.
“Yes, of course! May I have your order, please?” I went all professional and smiley.
They did not hold back. All of Jill’s friends must have been starving because it took me three trips to the food counter to get their whole order. Nobody helped me, of course. That would have been a little too much. At least I got explicit permission to sit down after I was done; I got a place next to Yuri and in front of Jill. Enriqueta was also on the opposite side of the table, so I had that going for me.
“So… you’re the last one who saw Aria. What’s up with them?” Jill asked me as I knew she would. I had already thought my answer from the time I had been serving food.
I relayed my whole experience starting from the pool. I was very careful on how I talked to Jill, knowing her. There were a few details I did not care to make public. In my story, I had escorted Aria to the showers and protected her from people for completely selfless purposes, and I was just on my way to take her to the infirmary when she came about and Aria told me that she was too hungry and we had to come to the cafeteria for breakfast.
