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?

I couldn't believe it, Alice actually said sorry! And then we're off to be goody-goodies! We run up to the head bunk.

"Mandy! Mandy!" Alice cries.

"Girls, it's way past lights out, go back to your bunks!" Mandy, the head of camp yawns.

"Mandy, the others are egging the Counsler Cabin!" I say.

"How do I know this isn't some practical joke? What if when I leave to go check out the Counsler Cabin and the other girls egg my bunk?" Mandy asks as she opens the door.

"Mandy. If you don't trust us, then you'll have to pay for the dammage that we're trying to save you from!" I always loved Alice's sharp tongue and had missed it for quite a while. 

"Well, when you put it that way then, LET'S GO!" Mandy runs out of the house, Alice and me bolting after her. We arrive at the Counsler Cabin. The other girls are just taking the first egg out of the carton and didn't notice us until Mandy shouted "Stop, desease, hault!" 

"What?" Destiny and Megan swirl around, crash into eachother and fall down.

"What, do you think, you are doing?" Mandy asks through gritted teeth.

"Weeeell..." Opal starts to say but Destiny gets up.

"The Grizzley Boys," those are the eldest campers at the neighboring camp which we get together with every Friday. "Said that if you go into a open space and take out five dozen eggs, the eggs will glow." Destiny lies desprately.

"Seriously?" I put my hands on my hips and Alice crosses her's.

"Destiny, you get dish duty AND floor duty for not being honest. The rest of you, dish duty for the rest of camp." and with that, Mandy walks off, then calls, "Alice and Santana, you get to sleep in for the rest of the week."

"NO FAIR!!" Megan cries out.

"SO FAIR!!!" Alice and I say as we high five. Such a simple problem, solved by honesty and friendship and rewarded with extra sleep! Awesome! 

Dear Mom and Dad,

Camp is awesome. Alice and I made up and now we get to sleep late for the rest of the week! Long story short, we stopped a major egging disaster from happening and were rewarded greatly!
