When I'm With You

Have you ever experienced that really awkward moment when you find out someone you've been best friends with forever has much stronger feelings for you? And the even more awkward times that follow that moment if you don't feel the same way?

Well, that's exactly what's been happening to m,e. And let's just say, it hasn't exactly been easy so far.


1. Sorry, but you're stuck with us.

"August! Stop it!" I shouted as I ran down the darker, less busy end of the beach, laughing. He was chasing me, threatening to tickle me. He knew how ticklish I was and he loved to use it against me, because I was ticklish everywhere.


"Oh no, Sierra. I'm going to get you! There is nothing you can do about it." he said, continuing to run after me across the sand. Then I had a thought, I stopped running. Sitting myself on the ground and crossing my arms, I made my self look bored. "Hey, why did you stop?" he asked. I grinned up at him as I said, "Oh, I got bored," He sighed. "Well, that just takes all the fun out of it." he replied with a shrug, sitting down next to me in the soft sand.


I smiled to myself because I knew that would make him stop. August was one of those kind of people who lived for fun. He wanted to make sure that every moment of everything he did was fun. He could make even the simplest of things like watching a movie or eating McDonald's seem like the greatest thing you may ever do in your life. It was one of the reasons I loved having him as a friend.


"So, ice cream?" he asked, looking down at me. Even sitting down he was at least 2 inches taller than me, standing he was three inches taller than my low height of 5'4". I laughed at our difference and nodded, pulling myself up off the ground and reaching my arm out to help him up also.




Ashley handed me a waffle cone topped with two scoops of chocolate chip frozen yogurt. "Your favorite." she said, smiling at me. Ashley was my other best friend. Ashley, August, Ashley's twin brother Caiden and I had been friend since kindergarten. We had been through so much together that it just kept us really close.


I laughed and nodded, thanking her as I took the cone. After getting August his ice cream we stood at the window for a few more minutes chatting with her. "So, you guys going to Landon's party tomorrow?" she asked, glancing over at me with a knowing smile. August chuckled as he looked over to me as well. "Do you even have to ask? This would would never miss a good party." he said, draping his arm over my shoulders. I giggled.


It was true, I did love a good party. Everybody that knew me knew that. I always have loved parties. Even birthday parties in first grade. I was just a born to party kind of girl. Even though you'd never know it if you saw me outside of the party scene. I just happen to be more quiet outside of parties. I guess that's why people find it surprising when they see me at a party and I'm dancing like crazy and shouting out the words to whatever song is playing, even if I don't know it well.


We said thank you to Ashley as August handed her a ten dollar bill. Taking his change we walked down the board walk toward the parking lot. "Sierra?" August asked, not really looking at me. "Hm?" I said. He bit as lip as he continued. "Um, do you think we'll ever grow apart? You know, find new best friends." he asked me. I pondered the idea for a moment.


August and I had been friends since kindergarten. We met on the first day and you know how little kid friendships are, find a person, make them your friend, become inseparable. We were that kind of story, along with Ashley and Caiden. But August and I had always been the closest out of the four of us. We just lasted longer than most kindergarten friendships.


By the end of second grade, the four of us made a sort of pact. A vow to always be there for each other, never turning our backs on one another. And the rest was history. Now we were in the summer before our junior year of highschool and we couldn't be closer. We told eachother everything and did most things together as well.


It sounds childish but we had been through so much together. From my parents divorce, to August's dad passing away and Ashley and Caiden's mother abandoning them, their father and their baby sister.We had such a history that leaving each other just didn't seem like an option. Not that any of us would ever want to leave the other. But if we did, it wouldn't really be possible.


"I really doubt that, August. Sorry, but you're stuck with us." I laughed. "Good, I couldn't imagine my life without any of you guys. Especially you." he smiled downat me as we approached my car. I pulled out my keys and clicked the button, unlocking the doors. August reached over and grabbed the keys from my hand, smirking at me as he walked around the car and stepped in. "Do you want to drive?" I asked him, sarcastically. "Nah, I'm good." he said, shaking his head and grinning as he started the car and backed out of the parking space.
