5. Chapter 5

Bella still hadn't gotten together with Derick. At the time, I kind of figured that they would almost immediately start dating. Grant it, it had only been a day since I broke up with him. Thankfully it was Friday today, and so I would only have to see them for one day before the weekend. That gave me time to think about what to do after that. You see, Derick and Bella were my only friends at the time because they were all I needed. Except I'd lost them both, so yeah. All I wanted to do was talk about what I was going through. I figured that I would have to make new friends if I didn't want to be forever alone, except everyone had already separated off into their own set groups long before then, and so I was kind of screwed.

Just then, I heard my mom calling for me from downstairs. I immediately snapped out of my thoughts and got up. Once I ran down the stairs and was in the living room where my mother was sitting, I took a deep breath because I was winded from the running. Then I looked up at her.

"Hey, what's up?", I asked.

"Oh, um...remember Brittney? You guys used to be, like, really close?"

I thought for a minute and then I remembered her. "The one girl who used to live next door but moved away two or three years ago?"

"Yeah! Well, she's moving back and going to your school again," she said. "And her mom was wondering if you could hang out with her because she doesn't want to be alone while she's trying to readjust again. So, would you mind?"

Well, then I guessed that I was going to have a friend!

"Yeah, totally! I could re-befriend her," I said.

"Okay, great! She'll be back next Tuesday, so if you could help her then."

With that, I went back upstairs and got ready for school. Surprisingly enough, I wasn't completely upset about having to face Bella and Derick because I had a new friend coming my way. I just had to last until then...
