Today, was the third time this week Carmon, Pepper, and Serina were together, it almost seemed like they were always together. Carmon and Serina couldn’t be happier, but Pepper had something troubling her. “Hey, who wants to go to the park?” asked Carmon enthusiastically. “I do!” responded Serina. “Sure, I’ll go ask my mom,” whispered Pepper. “...Hey mom, can we go to the park?” “Yes, but be back before 3 o’clock, it’s supposed to rain,” told Pepper’s mom. “Thanks, mom.” “Let’s go!” piped Carmon. “Hurry up!” engaged Serina. The walk wasn’t far, so there got there in about 5 minutes. Carmon and Serina raced to the playground of course they tied because they have the same speed as long as it doesn’t go long distance (then Carmon wins).
“Carmon, let’s play monkeys on the monkey bars,” said Serina. “Yes! Come on Pepper!” chimed Carmon. “Nah, I’ll just sit over here and watch. My legs kind of hurt from the walk,” responded Pepper gloomily. 30 minutes past of Carmon and Serina on the swings, the merry-go-round, and urging Pepper to join them. The metal bars were simmering and sticky from all the sweaty hands. It felt like rush hour in New York City, everyone was so energetic, that it seemed like they were having a sugar rush. The smell was horrid, like a mixture of a gym locker, moldy socks, and dead fish. The two friends tried cheering up Pepper, but she refused to smile, as if she was Mona Lisa. Suddenly, the sun glided behind a dark, gray cloud, and the wind kicked up as if a million souls were passing by.

It started to drizzle and the sky seemed to be getting darker. The bars cooled off and the stickiness washed away. People started to leave, ready for a sugar crash. The horrid smell was replaced with the scent of wet ground. “We better get going, it’s starting to rain,” said Serina irritatedly. “What’s wrong with rain?” asked Carmon. “Nothing, but it’s 20 minutes until 3.” “Oh, well then we should go.” They all started to walk as they shivered. Then suddenly Pepper said: “Wait, I have to talk to you two about something.” “Ok,” Carmon and Serina said together. They all sat down on the wooden, soggy bench. The two friends were clueless. “I have bad news,” said Pepper gloomily.
“What is it?” asked Carmon, while the two friends anxiety built up. “My dad is retiring from the coastal guard next friday. We’re already packing up to go to - South Dakota.” “What? Why?” questioned Carmon and Serina in unison. “My parents always wanted to go, but my dad’s job kept getting in the way. That’s why I’ve been spending so much time with you two.” “Why didn’t you tell us earlier?” asked Serina. “I guess I didn’t know how.” All the friends sat in silence like the wind was sweeping away all their happiness and replacing it with cold depression, that froze their mouths shut. The swings sway back and forth as if the ghosts’ happy memories were still there. Carmon was the first to speak: “Well, what should we do now?” “ I guess stay connected as possible. I mean what would be the purpose of not continuing our friendship,” suggested Serina half-heartedly. “She’s right,” seconded Pepper. Serina got an idea, an idea that would help them stay connected as long as they were on Earth. They would stay connected with the help of modern technology. “Here everyone write emails and phone numbers on these sheets of paper,” suggested Serina, as she pulled three pieces of paper and three pens from her bag. “Hey Pepper, maybe we can come visit you in South Dakota, and we can all go to Mount Rushmore,” joked Carmon. “Yeah, that would be nice. We would even get to go on a road trip,” replied Serina joyfully. “Maybe you could carpool!” laughed Pepper. “Yeah, we would drive the driver insane,” replied Carmon.
