I haven’t seen Serena since the start of summer. Now that we are back at school, I’ll finally talk to her again. I see her walking through the gates, looking around. I wave frantically at her, and she notices, breaking into a run to get to me.
“Adri!” she cries. “It’s been waaaay too long!” Her deep green eyes laugh as she swishes back her silky dark hair.
I’ve had a crush on Serena since, well, since I first met her 3 years ago. She was reading a book underneath the willow tree. She was the new girl. I walked up to her and said hello. She said, “ Hi. I’m Serena. And I can tell that we are going to be besties.” She was right.3 years later, and we are best friends. She is beautiful, intelligent, kind, funny, serious yet goofy, crazy yet completely normal. It’s amazing how she does it all at once.
“Let’s find Kelsie!” I suggest. Kelsie is our other BFF, and though she is completely bonkers, she is one of the best friends I’ve ever had. We spot her by her crush’s locker.
“Kels!” Serena shouts. They hug me and Kelsie hug, and finally me and Serena hug. I feel myself blushing bright red, and hope she doesn’t notice. That girl gives me butterflies. Every time.
