8. Aria's Back
Ever Since That Day when I turn to look at my dad I see the man that cheated on my mother. "Aria?" I hear Emily say. I turned around and saw her "Emily!" I say.
"When did you get back" she asked me going in for a hug "Yesterday" I said pulling out from the hug. "I almost didn't recognize you" Em told me.
"I mean the last time we saw each other, you had a pink stripe in your hair." She added
"Well, when your parents want you to be yourself and you don't know who you are..." Emily nodded and told me that I should have called. "It's so weird just running into you here." She added.
"Well, we've kind of lost touch, Emily, remember?" I asked.
"That's what we had to do" she told me. I sighed and told Emily about the poster of Ali I had seen yesterday. Em turned her head to look at me and said "wow, that's awful".
"I mean we all know she's dead, right?" She added.
The school bell just rang but me and Emily just stood on the steps. "I've just never heard anyone say it before" I told her. We walked to class and I wished that we had never talked about that.
