Blue Kool-Aid, Big Spoons, and Best friends

"Here." I hand him the large glass with blue liquid in it.
"What is this?" He chuckles.
"It's Blue Kool-Aid."
He nods and takes a drink. I see his eyes squint and he puckers his lips. "What did you put in that?" I laugh.

My mom hands me my bowl of cereal with a small spoon. I toss the spoon in the sink and grab one of the big ones. My mom looks at me weirdly.
"You know how I like it." I take a bite and she smiles shaking her head.

I sit with my head on Zelo's shoulder and his arm around me as we sit by the pond in the back yard.
"Zelo, you're my best friend."
"I'm gonna miss you."
"I'm gonna miss you too."

3. Unbreakable

"Emily's POV*

When I wake up it is still dark in my room. I look up at the clock above my head and see that it is 4:18, I groan and turn. Why am I so antsy? Hmmm, maybe it's because Zelo is coming tomorrow. Oh, wait, it's 4:18, he's coming today. I close my eyes and try to fall back asleep with no avail. I end up rolling around trying to get comfortable again. It just won't happen. I turn on my little lamp and grab my book.

***

"Em, wake up. We have to get ready. Zelo will be here shortly and we have to go pick him up from the airport. You need to make sure everything is ready for him, fix the bed, make everything look good." He says. I nod.

Is this really how I fell asleep again. My book is half smashed underneath my back and somehow my phone and it's cord ended up on the floor. I tug the book out from beneath me and try to fix the creases, setting it back onto my head board. I turn off the lamp I left on and pick up my phone. I hear the front door open then close so I get up all of the way and walk into Mike's old room. Everything looks clean. I check every drawer to make sure they are empty, then put new, clean bed sheets on the bed. Looks good enough to me. What do they expect, a chocolate on his pillow? I close the door and walk around the house, making sure it looks presentable. It looks pretty good. I go and lay down on my bed. I start my Pandora and take out my notebook.

***

My door is shut and I hear a small tap. I open it and see a boy a bit taller than me with greyish hair. I can't lie, he's really cute.


"Hello." I greet.

"Hi." He says.

"You must be Zelo?" I hold out my hand for him to shake.

"Yeah, and you are Emily?" He takes my hand. I don't know what it was but I got this funny feeling inside when he grabbed my hand. "Your dad said that if I got bored that I could come and hang out with you."

I smile and he smiles back. "So what would you like to do?" I ask.

"What is there to do?" He asks.

"Not much since it's a week night, but we could go outside or something." I offer the idea.

He nods. We walk out of my room and down the stairs to the foyer. As we put our shoes on my mom walks past the top of the stairs. She stops when she sees us.

"Where are you two going?" She asks.

"Just outside. Don't worry, we won't get into any trouble." I tell her.

She smiles. "You better not." I roll my eyes and we go out the front door.

"So where are we going?" He asks.

"The woods." I say.

We walk out to the woods behind my house. I feel a rain drop hit my forehead, then another hit me square in the eye. I look up at the cloud filled skies.

"Still want to be out here?" I ask.

He gives it some thought then smiles and nods. I nod and we continue to walk.

When we are about halfway into the woods when he stops. He walks over to a big tree in one of the little clearings. He grabs one of the branches and swings his legs up to climb up. He gets to one of the big branches and sits on it. He sits there for a minute then looks down at me and smiles.

"Aren't you coming?" He asks.

I shrug and do what he did to get up in the tree. I sit down on one of the other big branches a little higher up than his. I smile.

"Why are we sitting here?" I ask.

"I like climbing trees." He laughs. I laugh with him.

"Well, you might have to help me down, I'm a little afraid of heights."

He laughs. I look down to the ground that is so far below. I feel unbreakable. I wonder if he feels the same?
