Life is looming
“I cannot decide what I want to do. There are too many options for this project. There are no guidelines” complained Candace.
“Candy, you are so indecisive. There are five choices of topics” replied Candy’s best friend, Sugar.
The girls have never been away from each other for more than twenty-four hours. Their parents worked together in the public university’s hospital. People are always asking if they think their names are ironic because their parents are health-freak doctors, but they constantly say that no, their names were just cute little girl names.
"Sugar!" Candy whined, "I can not stand Calculus! Why does Mr. Bertini have to make us create Prezis for class presentations? It is a MATH class not History or English."
"Calm down; it is OK. You'll be fine. Once you start it will be easier. The hardest part is starting. I recommend-"
"Easy for you to say! You are a Math, English, AND History whiz!!!!" Candy interrupted on the brink of tears. "Can we work on this together? I promise I will work and not just make you do all the work...please? If I fail this class I'll have to go to summer school, or worse, get held back! This is our senior year! We have never been apart before and we planned going to Macalester together. I won't be able to get through another year of this school without you!"
Reluctantly Sugar agreed because she, too, was afraid that she wouldn't survive. The extreme Minnesotan winters might just kill her without her best friend forever and partner in crime.
Whenever Candy cried, Sugar cried. When one was down the other was too. No one could ever take her place. Nothing could break the bond between the two girls, they were more than just best friends.Neither could see what life would have in store for them, if the other was not there to experience it with her. It is true, that they had the usual ups and downs that best friends have but they always found a way through the rough patches. They live at the other’s house. Her family is the other’s family as well. Love is the unbreakable bond between these two.
