All we Need is Love
How Could You
Sophie Goode Pov
"Sophie, Tony's here!" My mom called up the stairs. I looked at my clock. 7:25
"I'll be there in a minute!" I called back. Hi, I'm Sophia Joseph Goode, but my parents call me Sophie, my friends call me Soph, and my best friend Tony calls me So-Jo. Here's a little background on me:
My parents were high school sweet-hearts and he proposed to her when they were in college. My parents are Zachary Joseph Goode (that's where I got my middle name and I'm named after his grandma Sophia) and Cameron Anna Goode. We live next door to the Neumans, Grant, Rebecca, and Anthony. Tony is my best friend. I've known him my whole life, his birthday is a week after mine, but he was born a year before me. Our little group consists of Tony, me, Sammy-Macey's daughter, Nick-Liz's son, Ryan & Rachel-Izzy's twins.
I looked in the mirror then walked quickly over to the stairs. I saw Tony's umbrella on the rack so he was most likely in the living room. I walked down the 15 stairs and turned to the living-room. Tony was sitting on the couch looking at his hands. Uh oh, somethings wrong.
"Tony, what's wrong?" I asked as I sat down next to him. Our parents were already out to dinner so we were alone. For the first time, I was actually worried about Tony. He looked at me and I saw something in his eyes.
"Sophie, there's something I need to tell you," he said, looking my straight in the eye. Oh gad, he called he Sophie, now this means business. "Sophie, I'm-" He was cut off by my phone ringing. It was Sammy.
"I'm sorry, I'll be right back," I told him then went into the kitchen.
"Hey what's up?"
"Well, Tony's here and I think something's wrong."
"Oh, okay, I'll call back later, but you have to tell me what happens."
"Sure, but what did you need?"
"I wanted to ask you what you were planning on wearing Monday for the first day of school."
"I'm going to wear that red and black mini-skirt with a white tank-top. Do you approve?"
"Yup, so I'll hang up so you can talk to Tony. Bye!"
I turned around and Tony was right behind me.
"Sophie, let's go on a walk," he said the grabbed my hand. We walked to the door, he grabbed the umbrella with his free hand, and I opened the door with mine. We walked over to the park we always go to when we need to talk. We sat on the picnic table across from each other. I sat cross legged with my hands on my lap.
"Tony what's wrong?" I asked as the rain poured down on us. He didn't answer, he just looked up at me. "Tony, your scaring me." He took my hands in his.
"I'm moving." My heart fell. We've been best friends since forever, and now he's leaving. "Sophie, I'm sorry. I wish I could stay here, but I can't. Were moving tomorrow. Look, I'm sorry," he said. I felt a tear fall down my face. I looked at him and he seemed to be crying too.
"What? Why? How?" I couldn't pick a question.
"My dad got a new job offer in Rome as a manager for a new gym or something and he couldn't say no. I'm so sorry," he said still looking me in the eyes. I looked down at my hands in his.
"But," my voice cracked a little, "we're starting high school in three days!" I was starting to get angry. "How could you!" I yelled then jumped off the table and ran into the rain. My clothes were getting soaked but I didn't care. I stopped running and just stood in the rain. I closed my eyes to make it all go away. I felt two arms hold me close. I couldn't see who it was, because they were behind me, but I knew it was Tony.
"I wish I could be there with you in high school, but I can't. I sorry," Tony said into my ear. I turned around and cried into his chest. We stood there for a few minutes and then we started walking back to my house. It was almost 9 o'clock and our parents would be there soon.
"I'll come over tomorrow to say goodbye," I said to him, but I couldn't look him in the eyes. I started walking up stairs. Tony grabbed my hand and turned me around.
"So-Jo, I'll miss you," he said looking me in the eyes.
"I'll miss you too," I said truthfully. My eyes started tearing up again. "Let's talk tomorrow, okay?" He nodded. I gave him a hug goodbye and we didn't let go until we heard my garage door open. "Our parents are home, so I'll see you tomorrow?" Again he just nodded.
"Bye," I called to him as he walked out the door. He looked back.
"Bye," he said and then he left my house. My parents came in a few seconds after Tony left. My mom looked at my with sad eyes.
"Did he tell you?" She asked. I just nodded and then I burst into tears. She hugged and cried with me. My dad looked sad too. After a minute of crying into my mom's new dress, I let go of her.
"I think I'm going to go to bed now. I'm going to get up early tomorrow so I can say goodbye to Tony," I said and then I walked upstairs. I changed into my pajamas and laid in bed, thinking about Tony. I love him like a brother and I can't stand going into high-school without him. I just hope he will be here before graduation... At the thought of that, I feel asleep, tears slipping out of my eyes.
I hope you guys like it! :) I am planning to swich between point-of-veiws of Tony and Sophie every other chapter so next chapter will be in Tony's Pov. I can't wait to get as many reviews as I did the last story! (which was 300 not including the 9 my sister wrote :) So in other words, R-E-V-I-E-W! :)
