I closed my journal, took a breath, closed my eyes. “May. May, wake up. May Li!!!” “Don`t call me that!” I muttered in my half-sleep. Anja shook me awake and Ms. Iken said that It was time to go. I got my stuff, organized it in my backpack (I can`t STAND it when it`s cluttered), and headed for the door. Ms. Iken stopped me just at the door and told me “May, please try to stay awake next time.” I nodded and walked to my next class. That went smoothly! Then the other two and then it was time for lunch. After I finished eating I threw away my trash, and I went outside. I just sat on the swings and looked to the ground. “Hey May.” I screamed a little and covered my mouth. Anja came around and sat on the other swing. “Sorry for scaring you. I didn`t know you scream that loud! 😀 ” “I really scream that loud?!” “yeah. It was short, but yes, it was a little loud.” Oh man. I didn`t know that “Haha yeah so what`s up” “Nothing.” I said “I saw some of those drawings you had in your Diary.” “Journal!!” I snapped a little. “Okay sorry I always thought you were a little less of a girly-girl.” she said. “not `a little less`, I`m not a girly-girl.I was in a gangish-thinga-ma-jig.” “A gang” “no, cause we didn`t get into trouble that much. we were just a group. I wonder what their doing now.” I looked down and started to cry. I missed them. “Hey, what`s wrong?” Anja asked. “Nothing. I just miss my best friends.” She didn`t say anything for a while. I felt a little better from crying and letting it out. Then I heard a sniff from her. I looked up and saw her crying too. She hid her face in her sweatshirt sleeves and looked away. I said “Hey, It`s okay. Did you move away from them too?” I heard her mutter “No. She`s gone.” I gasped a little. “You don’t mean-” “Yep. but it`s okay,cause I know she`s in a better place now.” She said with sniffles and hiccups interrupting her in between words. I took her in my arms and let her cry on my shoulder for a while until it was time to go back in for 5th period. We left a little early before the bell rang to go wash up Anja`s face. I opened the door and saw that May # 2 was at the sinks too. She looked up and started walking towards us. She said “So what happened? Get dumped?” Then she smirked at us with her evil little smile. I stood Anja against the wall. “You arn`t going to stand up to her are you?” “It`s for everyone`s good.” Then I walked to May `till we were about a step away. “You know what May?”
“You need to just shut your mouth and stay out of others business!! Why cant you just be a normal nice person?!” 😡 she just stood there. then came a little closer and whispered to me “Just watch your back rebel. Your on my `get rid of` list.” and with that, she walked out. I took Anja to the sink and washed her up ’till she looked as good as new!! (I always wondered where i got my make-Up and beauty skills from.) She looked in the mirror and was surprised at how well I made her look!! She looked as if she had never been crying!!
“how did you do this?!”
“I don’t know!! It comes naturally!!”
“No it doesn’t. There’s something special about you that makes you have this perfect ability!!!”
“Well thanks but I’m no daught-”
“Yes, I can tell you are.”
But how is that possible?!?! I’m just a mortal!! Not a Demi-god!!
