3. The Highlights


Chapter 3: 

Fourth Grade was long gone. It was time our time to shine. Jaden and I had made a promise at the beginning of the year. "We are going to make this year be memorable." That was a promise that was never broken, and was lived to the fullest. 

The teacher greeted everyone as they walked through the door, with a simple handshake and a "Welcome!" There were name cards placed on each and every one of the new refurbished desks. I toke my seat next to a girl named Melonie and a boy named Shane. Melonie seemed like a sweet girl, but was rather a little shy, on the opposite side Shane (with a slightly squared head) was very outspoken and actually quite funny. Jaden was sitting about 2 seats down next to some other guys. We smiled slightly at each other, each thinking the same thing "This is going to be a great class." 

For the next week, we found that Mrs. Cynitha was almost like a mind-reader. She seated us in almost the exact places where we would make our friends for that year. Our teacher became very fond of our group (and would never admit it, but she kind of favored us.) We excelled great in our academics for the time being. Jaden and I were still just as close, but now that we were older the rumors ere becoming more hurtful. Kids called us names behind our backs like "lover-boy" and "lover-girl". It came to a point where we had to pretend like we didn't like each other, but of course that quickly changed back to normal after just a couple days. 

Around February of that year, an opportunity came up in our lives that we just couldn't resist. An after School Bowling League. Hearing about it for the first time, Jaden, Me, Melonie and Shane all said "We're In!" This was one of the best choices ever made in 5th grade year. During our bowling league practices every Wednesday, we bonded closer and closer together. We shared inside jokes, and laughed too many times to count. I remember certain times (that now might be counted as immature) where we would mess around with each other. One memory that stands out to me the most was the bathroom incidents. Just putting a tampon in someones book bag, or putting someone's belt in a urnial. I admit that these made me laugh so hard we cried. The bowling league was the start of some lifelong friendships and memories that will last a lifetime. 

It was now ending the year, and our elementary school days were dwindling. 

Hope you enjoyed this chapter! In the next, I will have 5th grade graduation!
