Telling My Best Friends

   Suddenly, I heard my best friend, Christina, scream,” Brianna, get your booty over here!” I quickly turned around and started walking to Christina, who was surrounded by our little group of friends. Our group of friends consisted of Paula, Gabriel, Jordan (my boyfriend of 2 months), Piper, Emily, Christina, Ricky, Christopher (Christina’s twin brother), CJ (Christina’s boyfriend of 1 year), and I. We have all been friends since the 3rd grade when we all had Mrs. Jones as our teacher.
   I knew that I would have to put on a fake smile and hide my sadness about the bad news I had just received, because my friends always knew when something was wrong with me. I quickly put on a fake smile and walked over to the group. I sat down on the bench and said,” Hey guys. What’s up?” Piper, who was making her way over to me, said,” Nothing much. Why did Mrs. Lopez keep you late after 8th period?” I frowned at her and rolled my eyes.” Why you all up in her business, Piper,” demanded Jordan. I smirked and Piper stuck her middle finger and Jordan. Everyone burst into laughter. Christina quickly interrupted that laughter by saying,” But for real girl, why did you have to stay after with Mrs. Lopez.” I finally just blurted it out,” I am failing her class and I might get retained!” The whole group became silent.
    After what seemed like forever, Jordan finally said,” Oh damn babe! What are you going to do about this?” I shrugged and responded,” I don’t know what I’m going to do, but I know that I can’t get retained.” Ricky said,” I don’t know what we would do if you got retained and we all moved on.” Christopher shook his head and said,” Let’s not think about the negative. She might not get retained.” “True, but she could get retained. Let’s not even think about it right now though.” They crowded around me, hugged me, and kissed me.” Let’s go to my house and enjoy the rest of this crazy Friday,” exclaimed Piper. Everyone stared at her for a second, and then we all nodded and started towards Pipers house.
