10 YEARS AGO
Five seven year old kids were playing in the backyard.
Their names were Kendall, Lucy, Carlos, Logan, and James.
Lucy's parents walked outside.
"Lucy we have to go somewhere for a while."
"Where are we going?"
"We're going to Seattle."
"Because daddy just got a new job that requires us to move there."
"Lucy say goodbye to your friends."
"Goodbye old friend."
Carlos was crying "When will you be back!?"
"I'll be back soon."
Lucy walked up to Kendall her closest friend.
"I think I'll miss you most of all scarecrow."
"Funny. I'm not good with goodbyes."
Lucy kissed Kendall on his cheek and ran to her parents.
The boys all cried silently and ran to the front yard to wave goodbye.
As they saw Lucy's dad's car drive Lucy waved at the four boys and they waved back.
THREE YEARS LATER.
Lucy walked around the house they had moved into three years ago.
She missed her friends and cried when she thought about them.
"Mom when is the next time I'll see them again?"
I got onto a bus.
I told my parents I was moving back home to L.A.
I'm going to a school there called Palm Woods High.
My parents gave me money to buy a cheap nice house I found online.
They are also going to send me money to pay for bills.
I sit down on the first seat at the front.
I look around at the people on the bus.
I see one in particuar.
He has dirty blonde hair and was wearing a Beavis and Butthead tee shirt.
He looks like Kendall.
He can't be.
What would he be doing in Seattle?
After a 16 FREAKING HOUR bus ride ( this is seriously how long it takes.) the bus stopped at a greyhound station in L.A.
I exited the bus and so did Blondie. That's my new nickname for him.
I walked around looking for a cab.
I turn around to see who called me. No way. Blondie is Kendall.
I was actually lost for words.
"Looks like Dorothy has returned to Oz."
I smiled at his comment.
"It's good to see you again, Lucy."
I hugged him as tight as possible.
I hugged him for ten minutes.
One minute for each year I missed him.
"I've missed you alot Kendall. So what have you been up to and why were you in Seattle?"
"I was on my own vacation and me and the guys have our own band we play at local places."
"Cool I'd love to hear you play sometime."
"I'd love to hear you play that guitar." He pointed at my guitar.
"You waiting on a taxi too?"
"Yeah. We could both ride together."
"Sounds like a plan. So where are you staying?"
"I have my eyes on this cheap house but I don't have anywhere to sleep tonight."
"Problem solved. Stay at my place."
" Sure I'd love . So Summer ends in about a month, where do you attend school ?"
"Palm Woods High."
"That's the school I'm going to. Are the guys there too?"
"Yeah it's pretty fun. I have a girlfriend actually. Logan too. They're both actresses."
"I've always wondered what it's like to date an actor or actress."
"You don't have much time for dates. But other than that its fun."
Its great seeing old friends. And old crushes. I'll admit it I had a crush on him when we were little.
Its great being home.
I hope you like this story so far.
I am now working on moving...to the bed on the other side of my room.
