5. School

By now you realize that I have only a few friends left. I had by best friends Billy and Diego still there for me. Billy is the only new friend I've made in years since she moved from Kentucky in seventh grade, she had nobody and neither did I.
Billy had a thick accent and she loved plaid things, she had plaid shoes, pants, skirts, bandanas, boots, and of course shirts. It confused me at first when she introduced her self as Billy, but now I realize that it's just a nickname. Her real name is Bertha but she hated it and her family gave get the nickname bacause she could eat pretty much anything, like their billy goat.
When they had moved up here they had to sell the ranch and their animals so all they had now was a cat and three dogs. Her family was absolutely hilarious, they all had thick southern drawls, and when they told stories about the past they could laugh. I'm not sure why but that was just amazing to me, to tell any story in my house about the past was to cry uncontrollably; because mom was in them all.
I sat with Billy on the bus ride into school and she always gave my hand a squeeze whenever we stopped, I needed her because she was the only one that understood me. My family offered to give me rides to school but I couldn't accept, the bus was way different from moms car, plus the more people made me feel safer.
Compared to me my family has all recuperated to full capacity. Derek was about the same as me though, he thought of himself as the big older brother(by like 1 minute!) and hid all his feelings but he couldn't hide them from me, we were too alike to not know what was going on in the other persons head. Derek may be gentle and kind but when he is sad he covers it with an angry mask. Vincent took him up to the shooting range as often as possible to let off some steam, because I had begged him to. It ended up being the way they connected and I couldn't have been happier that I had helped them get closer.
