Falling Friendship

Alice Arbler and Santana Swent have been BFFs for nine years! When 6th grade comes they expect it to be the same: them being BFFs. But sudden changes in the summer tell them nothing is going to be the same. Alice and Santana must find pathways that don't connect. But each time they think they did, everything crashes and they have to start over again. Everyone they like seems to like everyone the other girl likes. Can they find a social life by the end of the school year? Or will they be doomed to spend the rest of the middle school life unsteady and on a rocky road?


14. Alice and Santana

Santana and I go in the car. 

"You girls excited to go get situated with your schedule?" Mr.Swent asks.

"You bet I am!" Santana squeels and we hug.

"Can't believe that in twenty four hours, we'll be..."

"SIXTH GRADERS!" we bounce up and down together. A few minutes pass, we drive into the school parking lot.


"NEXT." a cranky lady shouts. Alice and I walk up to the table and hand the cranky lady our schedules.

"Thank you, NEXT." and we walk away. 

"You girls go meet some people, I'm gonna talk to the other parents." Dad orders. And off we go to meet the fifth grade. Alice and I slowly walk into the gym where everybody is hanging out.

"Let's split?" Alice ask/says. 

"Sure." We don't have to talk so much to understand each other. A girl with a long blond ponytail walks up, I notice she has a pink strip of hair.

"Hi, I Brittany Horus are you new here?" she says.

"Um, I'm new to this campus. But I've lived here forever." I explain. Brittany gives me a questioning look. "Oh, I'm Santana Swent!" I say.

"Cool, nice to meet you." and she walks off.


I watch the ponytail girl that Santana was socializing with. I know it's unkind to not like your BFF becoming friends with other girls. I turn around and walk to a corner. Another girl is standing there. She looks so cool, with short chocolate brown hair and a hippy-style headband.

"Hey." I say.

"Oh, I didn't see you coming!" the girl looks surprised.

"Well, here I am! I'm Alice Arbler. What's your name?"

"Bella Bergous. I like your attitude Alice. Hey, is Alice short for anything?" Bella asks.

"No, well maybe Alicia. But I'm not sure. I like your headband." I compliment her immediately.

There, now we both have friends.
