2: What would you say if you had a best friend that you played with everyday and one day out of the blue she said that she was moving away for good, I know I would be scared and feeling lonely too. It was the Summer holidays of 2012 and my friend Polly and I were playing double dutch out on the concrete pathway just outside my house. We played every single day except some days when we did homework but it was the holidays now so that didn't matter.Before we knew it the 6 weeks of Summer holidays had gone by but what can I say, time flies when your having fun!
3: One day when Polly and I were playing at the park we were about to walk home when suddenly out of nowhere Polly stared crying very heavily. "What's wrong?" I asked Polly."Nothing, I mean don't worry about it." replied Polly. "Please Polly tell me!" I said angrily but anxiously." Don't worry." She then said but I knew something was up. " Come on! Spill it!" I then was starting to get really angry. " Fine Emma I will tell you,my Dad just landed a new job in Switzerland, working as a lab scientist... And here is the worst thing we are leaving tomorrow! She then started crying even more than before,I could of said something but I decided to give her a big hug But then I started crying too.
4: We both walked home together that afternoon and I helped her do the rest of her packing even though I was sort of helping her leave. That night I slept over and we told each other how much we would miss them. In the morning my mum let me go to the airport with her. It was a long drive, 2 hours and a half to be exact. As soon as we got there we said our long long long good-byes. After a while she had to leave and I watched her walk through the tube to the plane. " I will miss you" I said wiping tears from my cheeks. "Bye I miss you already" Polly replied.
5: It had been a week and it was time to go back to school, I woke up a bit late for school but I got there on time. As soon as I got through the gates to school a girl walked up to me and said " Hey I'm Jasmine wanna be friends?" I then replied " Sure and I am Emma by the way" We then walked to class as the bell rang, I then mumbled under my breath " I think this is going to be a start of a beautiful friendship. | THE END
