      The bus came to a halt and the driver called back “New York.” I tapped on the man sitting next to me, who had been snoring loudly.

      “This is my stop.” I state softly and he groans sliding into the aisle allowing me to pass.

      “Thanks” I mutter and climb off the bus.

       Immediately there is a change in atmosphere. In Kentucky, sure it wasn't the quietest place but there was still a sense of familiarity, a feeling of comfort. But now it was different. As soon as my foot hit the sidewalk I was knocked off guard by a massive flow of people. Staring across the street I realized New York has a never ending supply of them.

      When I finally managed to keep my balance, I looked around and saw him. He hasn't changed at all. Still with his shaggy blonde hair and sunglasses on top of his head. "Daniel!!" I call and run toward him. He looks up from his phone and shoves it into his pocket pulling me into a hug. “This place is huge.” I exclaim in awe at the humongous skyscrapers and massive billboards, nothing like the ones you see back home.

      “Yeah well, you’ll get used to it.” he chuckles, watching me scan the streets. There were so many people. Joggers, bikers, business men and women with briefcases. “C’mon, let’s go.” I follow him through the crowds, holding onto the strap of his backpack so that I wouldn’t lose him. That would be a disaster.

      We stopped in front of a tall building. “Here it is. The wonderful castle.” I smiled, allowing him to lead me up the steps. He shoves his hands into his pocket and then looks at me. “Um, hold on a second.” he sits down on the steps and starts pulling things from his pockets. Folded up papers, his wallet, crumpled bills and coins.

      “You forgot your keys didn’t you?” I ask, plopping down on the step beside him.

      “Maybe.”

      “Is anyone home?” I ask, glancing at the line of buttons next to the names of residents and their apartment numbers. He follows my gaze and puts the palm of his hand to his forehead.

      “You are a genius.” he states throwing all the items back into his pockets, standing up and dusting himself off. I smile to myself and press the buzzer next to apartment number 7. I hear Lily’s voice

      “Hello?” Daniel puts his finger to his lips

      “Hey Lily? It’s Danny, I forgot my keys can you buzz me in?” he asks. I give him a questioning glance. “She doesn’t know that you’re here. I wanted to surprise her.” he whispers

      “Again? You really need to stop leaving them here.” I look over at Danny and he shrugs, getting a little red in the face. There is a faint sound of buzzing and Danny pulls the door open, going first and leaving me behind.

      “Such a gentleman.” I joke. He ignores me until we get to the door.

      “I’m going to go in and tell her that there is a package. Just wait here and don’t make a sound.” I nod silently and wait. I hear them talking and arguing but then the door opens and there stands a tired looking Lily. She takes one glance at me and she relaxes.

      “Renee.” she whispers excitedly, hugging me tightly. “Come in, come in.” she steps backward and lets me pass into the apartment. “It’s not clean. The boys don’t know the meaning of the word ‘clean’” she states shooting a look toward Danny and Tyler  who were sitting on the couch. “Tyler.” Lily calls.

      “Hold on a second.” he motions with his index finger. “No!” he exclaims and I realize he had just been playing a video game.  He looks up and sees me. “Renee! I’m sorry, I didn’t realize you were here.” He approaches me and we do our signature  handshake. Tyler was always my best friend, the other kids always thought it was weird that we were bestfriends and we didn’t have feelings for each other. They thought that it was odd for a girl and guy to be “Just friends”

      “You guys are weird.” Lily says watching us do our handshake.

      “Thanks.” Tyler and I exclaim simultaneously

      “I repeat, weird.” she walks away to the kitchen to finish washing the dishes from the previous night’s dinner. I sit down on the couch between Tyler and Danny who switches off the television.

      “So is this what you two do all day? Just sit around playing video games? I’m sure Lily can’t stand that.” I state

      “She hates it.” Lily calls from the kitchen and we all laugh.

      “I don’t sit here ALL day.” Tyler says innocently. We laugh again. “Sometimes I get up to get food.”

      “Oh Tyler. Still the same boy I knew last year.” I lay my head on his shoulder

      That night we talked and shared stories. Reliving our memories, laughing. It was one of the best nights of my life.
