This is amazing! I didn’t wait until August 10th. I did it tonight!
After church we went to McDonald’s so Kevin could see Sonya. And I told Marcus that I couldn’t take it any longer. I had to see her now.
Christi was home.
She answered the door and at first I thought, “Oh Lord, she’s going to roll her eyes.”
Marcus went in and she gave him a hug. She saw me and said, “Hey Jacob” and gave me a hug too. Her hair was in braids and she has braces now. I told her to smile for me and she did.
Man, what is it about braces that makes a girl so pretty?
Well, we went on in. I talked to Hank about stuff while Marcus talked to Christi. Then I stood up and listened in on their conversation. Christi asked me how my summer was going. We began talking and Marcus left to go talk to Hank. I asked her if we could go into her room, and we did.
And I told her everything. I told her about May 10th and what Cheryl and Amy and Ryan have told me. I mean everything.
But to sum it all up, she said that she was feeling that way because she thought I was changing, but by coming to her and saying what I did and apologizing, it showed her that I hadn’t changed at all and that actually maybe she had. She told me she was sorry. I have her a hug and told her how happy I was.
She said she was happy too and hopes that she never loses a friend that is as wonderful as me.
Then Brooke came over. That is the girl that works at Wal-Mart, whom I talked to yesterday. Then more people came over and we all talked for a while.
Marcus and I had to go get Kevin. Christi said she didn’t want us to go. And they invited us over for Wednesday.
Everything has turned around.
Perhaps you will be with me for a while.
