"Cora, did you finish your paper for AP English?" Jade asked from her side of the room. Jade Holland. My roommate for this semester, and also one of my best friends. When I first met Jade this year, I assumed she was a really... particular about her friends—well a snob. However, as I began to get to know Jade more and more over time, I learned that she just has no tolerance for idiots. We share that quality.
