2. A New Best Friend

~Tara's POV~

I'm sitting in my new home in Wolverhampton, England. I'm still not over the fact that I had to leave my best friend. I hear a knock at the door and see my mom answer it. Standing there are two adults and three kids. My mom guides them inside and calls to all of us. My dad comes in from his office and my brothers come in from upstairs. I get up from the couch and walk over to the others. I notice a boy with brown hair and brown eyes.

"This is Mr. and Mrs. Payne. These are their children Nicola, Ruth, and Liam." My mom says. I look at the kids. Nicola and Ruth both seem about my brothers ages but Liam looks to be about my age. "Why don't you kids go upstairs and play?" My dad says. The six of us go upstairs into the play room and begin to play.

As I'm playing with Liam, I realize that I'm going to need a friend and that maybe he can be my new friend. But he can never be my best friend. Niall already has that spot. "I'm Tara." I say to all three of them but mostly to Liam. That's when my brothers then introduce themselves. Liam and I get to talking and decide to be friends.

That whole summer, the six of us always hang out. When the first day of second grade comes around, Liam and I get put in the same class and sit by each other. We do everything together. We even spend the night at each other's houses a few times. Liam and I become best friends. I don't forget about Niall though.

The following year, my parents get a divorce. My brothers and I stay with our mom and we never really see our dad anymore because of how much he works. He has gotten too absorbed in his work and it caused problems between my parents. My mom remarries a few months later and I now have three step brothers.

The summer between third and fourth grade rolls around. That's when I'm given the same news as two years earlier. Once again, we are moving. 'Why?' I ask myself. That night, the Paynes' come over for supper and my parents tell them the news. I look at Liam and his face is sad. I can't believe I have to go through this again. When they leave, I get ready for bed and cry myself to sleep just like the first time.

As we pack up our things, Liam and I hang out every single day. We have to make the most of things. I had promised Liam on the first day of second grade that we would be friends forever and I intend to keep that promise.

The day comes where we have to move. Liam and his family come to say goodbye. I say goodbye to Nicola and Ruth and then stand in front of Liam. "I promise that we will always be friends. And to prove it, I want you to have this." I say and hand Liam a bracelet that I had made in art class one day. It is pink and purple. Our favorite colors. "Forever and always. I have something for you too." Liam says. He then hands me a bracelet that I guess he made in art class too. It's purple. We help each other tie the bracelets onto our left wrists. We hug. "I will never forget you." Liam whispers into my ear. "Friends Forever. I won't forget you either." I whisper back.

Our parents come over and take a picture of us together smiling. I get in the van and wave to Liam as we drive off. He waves back. I get tears in my eyes but cry silently. I can't believe I lost another best friend. I look down at my wrist to see both bracelets from my two best friends. This is the worse day of my life.

~Liam's POV~

We have just gotten new neighbors a few houses down. My parents decide that we must go over and introduce ourselves. We head over and my mom knocks on the door. A woman answers it. "Hello. Caroline Smith." The woman says. My mom introduces all of us and then Mrs. Smith leads us inside and calls for her family. I see a man and two boys about my sisters ages come into the room. Then a girl with straight brown hair and blue eyes comes into the room. She looks to be about my age.

"This is Mr. and Mrs. Payne. These are their children Nicola, Ruth, and Liam." Mrs. Smith says. "Why don't you kids go upstairs and play?" Mr. Smith says. The six of us go upstairs into the play room and begin to play.

As I'm playing with Tara, I realize that I'm going to need a friend and that maybe she can be my friend. "I'm Tara." She says to all three of us. That's when her brothers then introduce themselves. Tara and I get to talking and decide to be friends.

That whole summer, the six of us always hang out. When the first day of second grade comes around, Tara and I get put in the same class and sit by each other. We do everything together. We even spend the night at each other's houses a few times. Tara and I become best friends.

The summer between third and fourth grade rolls around. One night, we go over to Tara's for supper and her parents tell us that they are moving. I instantly become sad. I look at Tara and her face is sad. I can't believe I have to go through this. I don't want her to leave. When we leave, I get ready for bed and cry myself to sleep.

The day comes when they have to move. My family and I go over to say goodbye. I say goodbye to Andrew and Stan and then stand in front of Tara. "I promise that we will always be friends. And to prove it, I want you to have this." She says and hands me a bracelet that she probably had made in art class one day. It is pink and purple. Our favorite colors. "Forever and always. I have something for you too." I say. I then hand her a bracelet that I made in art class too. It's purple. We help each other tie the bracelets onto our left wrists. We hug. "I will never forget you." I whisper into her ear. "Friends Forever. I won't forget you either." She whispers back.

Our parents come over and take a picture of us together smiling. She gets in the van and waves to me as they drive off. I wave back. I begin to cry because I just lost my best friend. This is the worse day of my life.
