  • Why do they always have to fight?
  • "We need to talk"
  • "You need to choose one of us"
  • Hi Hannah!!
  •   My friends have always had a small feud going between them, which made it no fun to go to recess. Mia always told me I had a “backup” friend in case I needed a break from all the drama. But I was surprised when she came up to me and said, “Hannah, the day you have to make a tough decision is the day the light will guide your path.” “OK?” I replied with a confused voice. I didn’t even get it. It’s not even sunny outside, I thought, it’s windy, leaves blowing every which way, and the sun nowhere to be found, making me miserable.
  • "Hannah come back!!!!"
  • I looked over at Danielle and Lexi and I suddenly remembered why I am their friends, even through all of the feuds. Our parents were best friends, and I have always played with them since I was born, I couldn’t leave that, but if I didn’t, I would be miserable, I thought.  I can’t break their hearts, but at the same time, they are always breaking mine. Suddenly, a gust of wind pulled me out of my thoughts. I am at recess, at Lexi, Danielle, and my table we always sit at. The field they use to play kickball is to the left of us, on the baseball diamond, with the base lines painted white. I sit next to the kickball field because Mia plays there. Lexi and Danielle are having a pretty big fight, usually they only last a few hours, but this has been days. They usually have fights because Danielle is so dramatic, while Lexi is defensive. I see them walk over with their lunches, and their faces looking as stern as my father’s.
  • "Hannah's on deck"
  • “We need to talk to you,” exclaimed Lexi. As soon as they sat down I knew this was going to be trouble. As I pulled out my PB&J sandwich, the jelly leaking out red as blood, the girls kept talking. “Lexi and I are done fighting, or being friends for that matter,” said Danielle with the sound of confidence “What?” I questioned, “How will I be friends with both of you?” “You can’t,” explained Lexi, “you will have to choose who you want to be friends with.” My world is now being darkened, as if someone has closed my eyes, the only thing I can see clearly, like a light is shining,  is the kickball field, and Mia. As I see Mia smile so big that it seems she stuck a orange in her mouth, she waves at me, and I realized in my thoughts , I always wanted to have smiles all the time, and no arguments. But, I couldn’t do that with Lexi and Danielle, who were always fighting and making me miserable. I looked back over Danielle and Lexi,  slowly earned my vision back.
  • "Great job, way to go, Hannah!"
  • The wind gave me chills as I am waiting to tell Lexi and Danielle my final decision. My palms now getting sweaty, as I am feeling faint. Sweat dripping from my forehead as Danielle says, “Well? Who will it be?” “I have chosen-” I paused “neither of you.” “What?” questioned Lexi. “That’s not an option,” Danielle tried to explain. As they were speaking, I wasn’t listening, as I was walking over to where the light shined the brightest, and where it always had. Now, I walk with the pride of a lion to Mia.
  • ”I think I’ll take you up on that offer!” I said worrisome she wouldn’t accept me. “Sure thing,” Mia smiled as she turned to her friends, “Hannah’s on deck, everybody.” Even though I didn’t know what that meant, I loved it, I KNEW I had made the right decision, even if I didn’t know what the heck she was talking about. The sun had now come out, wind calmed, and I am at the kickball field, with Mia kicking. Mia kicked a line drive to 3rd base, making it to first, which meant the bases were loaded, and I was up. Great, I thought,  my first impression and I would let everyone down. And to top it off, there was two outs, tied game, and recess was about to end. The screams of girls pulled me out of my thoughts as the ball is rolled. All I can hear is, “Come on Hannah!” “Hit me home!” “Just don’t miss, and you’ll be fine!”
  • Without realizing, I kicked the ball, as I watched it soar, my head feeling faint, as I’m feeling nervous, I just started running. I’ll at least show them I gave it my all, I thought. At first base, I turned to see if I should run to second, only to see the ball soar over the fence. I kicked a home run, I thought. As I got to home plate, my new friends tackled me laughing, and I knew what Mia meant earlier today, I had a tough decision, and the light guided me to a decision, and it was the right one, and I knew it from the start. I hit a home run, wow! I thought, but not just in kickball, but in friends too!
