I started to walk towards the steps but Sienna stopped me.
“You look troubled.” Sienna said, concerned.
“Yeah.” I said with a sigh. “I still haven’t told Kanani yet.”
“Ah. You better do that. 2 Days left of summer.” Sienna said with a smile.
“Yep.” I said and turned towards the steps as Sienna turned back to the stove.
As I flung myself onto the bed Kanani and I share, I heard her excited vpice cry out.
“Two more days! Two more days until hiiiiigh school begins!! Our lives will soon be changed-forever.” Kanani exclaimed.
“Yay.” I said. I know my life will be changed more than Kanani knows.
“Kanani, I have to tell you something.”
“Okay, what’s up?”
“Hey guys! Sorry to innterupt! Sienna says dinners ready!”
The night and following day flew by in a whirwind of preparations. I had multiple openings to tell my dearest friend, and yet, it never happened.
Soon I had to get dressed. And then, I knew I had to face my best friend.
“Why are you dressed like that? You need to change silly! Why would you wear that on the first day of high school?!” Kanani exclaimed.
“Because this is the uniform.” I said sadly.
“Uh, no it’s not.”
“You see, I was, um, excepted into Saint Mary’s.” I said.
“What?! Why did I never know my best friend was going to that stupid rich smart people school?!” Kanani cried.
“I, uh. . .”
“Ya know what? I don’t want to talk to you. Leave me alone, and don’t bother following me!”
I had no choice but to grab my backpack and walk to my new school, where I knew no one.
Standing at the bus stop without Ginny was lonely. I didn’t know what to do. Sure, I know everyone there, but I always talked with Ginny, not them.
I started to think I was wrong about leaving her. Then, I knew what to do. But, I had to hurry.
Soon I was panting and sweaty, but I had almost caught up to Ginny.
I heard someone panting behind me so I decided to take a quick look. It was Kanani!
I stopped and waited for her to catch up but then I needed to let her catch her breath for a moment.
I started to apologize but I was caught off guard by a hug from Kanani.
I knew then, we were best friends, again.
Ginny started to say something, but I was short on time. I had to go back and catch my bus! So I just gave her a big hug to show I forgave her.
“Have a great day at school Gin’. ” I said smiling as I turned to run back to my bus.
“You too!” She shouted.
I smiled and ran towards the new chapter of my life.
