It's easy to be perfect when your secrets are buried.

Three girls, loyal to each other? That never happens. All the groups of three implode eventually. Two in, one out. Change. Betrayal. Again and again.

But not us. I make sure of it. I make Ash and Ruby see that our power is in our three-ness. We can do what no other trio can.

Together, we're strong.

Thick, thin, boys, mothers, divorce, other girls, secrets, lies, all of it.

I'll keep us safe. Whatever it takes.

Watch me.
