I finish up math problem just as I hear the screeching sound of the bell again. For the first time, I'm not happy that it's break and to have those few, short, sweet minutes of freedom from responsibility.
Thoughts running through my head, I decide to go to the bathroom to waste a couple of minutes.
Where will I go? Who will I talk to?
As I push open the door to the bathroom, I see a group of girls walking and laughing together in the hall. A worried fear comes over me.
What if I never have friends like that? What if I'm alone for four years?
I look down, trying to make myself invisible when I crash into someone. I raise my head waiting to see the face that belongs to the body, finding that it's a girl who looks much like me.
I must look shocked because she backs off a little, but I can't miss my chance now. I have no idea who this girl is or what will come from it, but I now have a boost of reassurance that maybe I can do this whole high school thing and that maybe I will be okay after all.
Hey, I'm Sarah! Want to com hang out with me and my friends?
