DeWayne lives in a two story apatment with his mom and his best friend lives on the second floor of the same apartment .
Raffa is leaving to see family for the holidays. DeWayne offers to let him stay with him but Raffa declines the offer because he has to go.
Dewayne was reading the book that Raffa gave him for his birthday when he heard footsteps on raffa's floor. He thought it had to be Raffa. The weird thing is Raffa was supposed to be gone for the holidays.
He went up stair saw Raffa and asked "You didn't go to Mexico after all" but Raffa was acting weird, like he wasn't talking, and all he did was shrug his shoulders, His skin seemed to be pail white.
Raffa and DeWanye went to Raffa's Room so he could rest. DeWayne was about to turn on the lights, but Raffa stopped him. He told him he liked the dark . Then Raffa looked sad.
Raffa looked up at DeWayne with a twisted smile and said "best friends for ever". Then Raffa grabs his arm and won't let go and repeats "best friends forever".
