It took a second for her to nod when one of the girls asked her if she was Ella before the other followed suit and greeted her gleefully. The girl, who introduced herself as Taylor, suggested that she wait to go shopping until later and although Ella wanted to take opportunity of Lyla having time to drive her, she was interested in the new people as well. It seemed like she wasn't the only one because as soon as Will spotted them, he stopped what he was doing and shoved Ella aside in order to capture the girls' attention for himself. Ella scowled and considering pushing him back but she realized that would be babyish and didn't want to seem immature in front of Will, even if he was being a player.

Will led the girls forward and Ella glanced back towards the front door, still unsure about what to do before reluctantly closing the door and following them into the house. She didn't want to seem lame in front of Lyla but she also didn't want to upset Jason, especially after Lyla had just told him to "fuck off". It was something that had surprised Ella, knowing that if she had said it, she would've been sent straight to her room, but with Lyla, it was different. Ella envied her confidence and the way that she really just did and said whatever she wanted. She couldn't even flip off Sarah without getting yelled at for it but it seemed like Lyla could do anything. Ella's idolization of Lyla may have been different if she had seen all of the real consequences that her sister had to endure - the brutal hangovers, threats from her parents, and most recently, her overnight trip to jail, but most of that was hidden from Ella. She heard about the groundings and the lectures but those didn't seem like a steep price to pay for all of the fun that Lyla had, especially when she disregarded most of their warnings anyway.

Jason approached, introducing himself to the girls after directing Will to where the batteries were. "Jason's twenty-two," she said matter-of-factly, "and his girlfriend Alexandra is upstairs." Even though Ella knew that Jason and Alex were only friends, she recognized that Taylor and Madison were pretty and since Jason really didn't have a girlfriend, she didn't want anything to happen between them. It was true that Ella had literally only known them for two minutes, but because Jason had always been the one to devote the most time to Ella, she had always been defensive whenever he brought any girls home, despite how nice they were. She didn't like anyone to take his attention away from her and even now, when part of her wanted him to not care so much, she still feared that he would replace her with these strangers.

"Can we go swimming after Will puts your stuff upstairs? The beach is right outside and I want to go in the water," she said, completely switching the topic as she glanced out the window. By now, she had nearly forgotten about going shopping with Lyla and while she didn't want these girls to get too close to Jason, she was also kind of excited to have them there to do things with.
