The smell of the piping hot pumpkin spice latte that was tightly clutched in Massie Block’s hands tickled her nose, as she leisurely strolled down the path that led to her favorite bench in Central Park. She spotted the familiar blue and gray plaid shirt that she had bought Landon for his birthday, already seated at the bench, and a sleepy pug at his feat . Massie’s plum-stained lips grew into a smile, and she bent down releasing Bean from her leash, to run and play with Bark. Seconds later, her Tory Burch Riding Boots were lifted from the ground, and her still-smiling lips were met by Landon’s. “Pumpkin spice, my favorite,” He said when they pulled apart, Massie rolled her eyes and let out a giggle that she could only channel when she was around Landon. Slipping her hand in his, they both took a seat on the bench and watched Bean and Bark run around the tree’s, whose leaves were now turning a pleasant gold.
“So how’s my model girlfriend?” Landon asked, with an innocent smirk. Massie had been away on business for two weeks in Milan, shooting for Versace. Ever since her spread in Seventeen had been released she had been getting call from tons of labels, which sadly had left her no time for her friends, or Landon.
“Extremely tired,” she whined, laying her head on his shoulder, “I miss school, and being home with Inez and Bean.”
“I’m sure your work load will lighten up soon,” Landon reassured her.
“Doubt it, I have three more shoots this week, which means I have to miss three more days of school. I might as well drop out, I’m hardly there.” Massie knew, however, that this was never an option, nor did she want it to be. Somewhere deep down she knew she had to quit modelling for the sake of her grades, and the chance to have the best high school experience she could manage. But nothing gave her the thrill of being in front of a camera, jet setting all over the world to meet different designers, and just being able to wear incredible clothes.
“Hey don’t stress, I have a super fun day planned, ok? Just enjoy it.” Landon said, grabbing her hand and pulling her up the pathway.

Massie sifted through the grey cable knit sweaters, a fall fashion staple that she already owned 20 of, but couldn’t help but want more. “Mass, I think you just need a break from modeling,” Alicia said to her from behind the neighboring rack of leggings. Kristen popped her head up and nodded in agreement, The Pretty Committee had been trying to cheer her up all afternoon but Massie still couldn’t shake her somber mood. “No she can’t! Her career is just getting started,” Dylan squealed, appearing out of the dressing room. Massie giggled at the turquoise top she had paired with her leather pants.
“I give that shirt a negative eight,” Kristen snorted.
“Point,” Alicia called, raising up a manicured finger.
“Same here Dyl, so nawt your style,” Massie shrugged.
Dylan rolled her eyes, “listen to me Mass, my mom always says that you have to strike while the iron is hot, and let’s face it your not getting any younger.” The Pretty Committee shrieked with laughter, Massie had to grip onto the clothes rack from falling over. “Since when was fifteen old, Dylan?” She asked between laughs. “Nobody understands the industry these days,” Dylan huffed, tossing her auburn hair over her shoulder and heading back into the dressing room.
“I think Dylan is right though,” Kristen said, “you don’t want to take a break and come back to no opportunities.”
Massie pursed her Underaged by Mac tinted lips in frustration, could her friends really be right? Could just a year or two off modeling be that detrimental to her career? Shaking the horrific thought out of her mind, she reached inside her pocket and wrapped her fingers around her brand new Platinum Master Card. “Enough worrying,” she said pulling the card out, “I want to go spend some of my hard earned money. Chinese anyone? My treat!”
I’m so sorry for being gone so long, I’ve just been terribly busy!
I hope you all love the new makeover, I wasn’t really feeling a spooky one for Halloween this year.
So what do you guys think of me quitting modeling? Should I? Or should I not?
Have a great day, lovelies!
