ONE WEEK LATER
“They’re youtube queens at 17. Please welcome to the
stage, Ruby Croft and Alaska Merino!”
We walk down the hall to come out to where the cameras are, with
Kiss You playing in the backround. We both do a little dance before
“So good to have you on the show, girls!”
“It’s so good to be here!” I reply.
“Now, I understand Alaska had her first trip to the beach
“Yes! It was awesome! The sand is wayyy softer than what I
thought it would be like, and the water was nice and cold! I Made
my first ever sandcastle. Ruby taught me how to surf! It was just
