“And remember to check out the summer read-”
Yes! The last bell of school and the first bell of summer!
Mr. Meehan didn’t even get to finish his sentence before kids were throwing their papers and rushing out of the room.
“Can you believe it!?”
Carmen came up behind me.
“Actually, I can.”
We laughed and pushed our way to our lockers.
“Let’s stay in touch Kim!”
“Call me over the summer Kimmy!”
“Have a great summer Kim!”
I smiled and waved to everyone as I piled my books into my bag and headed to the front of the building.
Carmen and I walked to my car, waving goodbye and looking around the school. We were only sophmores, we would be back again next year, so why was I so sad?
