“We can’t be friends again Francis, It’s just for the best” I said as I was about to leave.
But he grabbed my hand “why Lia, why do you want to leave me now, we have been friends ever since we were young.”
I removed my hand from his grip. He looked hurt but I couldn’t care less
“Because Francis you have been behaving so possessively I don’t have any other friend because of you!!”
“Please Amelia don’t leave me.”
He hardly calls me Amilia so this means he was hurting a lot
“Am sorry Francis it’s just for the best” I said before leaving not before looking at him one last time he had tears rolling down his cheeks.
It made me so sad but I swallowed the feeling before finally leaving.
“My name is Amelia Johnson.”
“So let’s go wayyy! back to the beginning where it all started.”
“Amelia come here”
“Am almost done mummy” I said while putting the last piece of sticky tape on the wrapping paper.
I said while taking my present and running downstairs.
Today we are going to visit our new neighbors and I said she has a son the same age as me so I decided to welcome them with a gift.
“Amelia what did I say about running on the stairs?”
“Sorry mummy, I just got a little excited.”
“Can we go now and get this over with already” my older brother said.
“We left with my mum holding a cake in her hands.”
We knocked for a while.
Then a young boy around my age opened the door .
He looked surprised to see us then closed the door back.
“Francis qui est à la porte?” (Francis who is at the door) a lady asked
“certaines personnes que je ne connais pas " (Some people I don’t know) he answered.
After a while the door opened again.
It was a beautiful lady who welcomed us with a smile.
“You must be the neighbours, sorry that my son is used to meeting new people. Please come in” She said with her French accent.”
When we entered, the inside of the house was beautiful.
And the boy we saw was sitting down on the couch playing video games.
We sat on the table while my mum dropped the cake on the table.
“They started discussing boring stuff while my brother fell asleep.”
So I sneak out to see what He was doing and maybe present him with my gift.
He was watching SpongeBob so I sat beside him.
“My name is Amelia and you?” I asked but he didn’t reply. He looked like he was not in a mood to talk.
“I got you something” I said and he finally looked at me then the present on my hands.
He took it then opened it and smiled, it was a toy monster truck my brother bought for me a long time ago but I don’t like to play with it anymore.
“Thanks” he said.
“You are welcome”
“My name is Francis by the way.”
“Nice to meet you Francis.”
