Where We Left Off
I walked out to the pond, the envelope dangling from my hand. I walked right up to the edge, where I could see my reflection, then tore it open.
I was just about to unfold the pages within when I saw something, out of the corner of my eye, moving quickly, so quickly I almost doubted it. I stepped closer, peering down into the murky depths, past the rocks and algae and budding irises, and there, sure enough, I saw a flash of white one, my fish, that I saw first. I took a deep breath and tore the letter open.
DearMs. Cooper, it began. We are pleased to inform you…
I turned around, looking back at the kitchen where, unsurprisingly, Jamie and Cora were both standing watching me. Jamie pushed it open, then stuck his head out. "well?" he said.
"Good news," I said.
"Yeah?' Beside him, Cora put her hand to her mouth her eyes widening.
It's been about two months since I got my acceptance letter. I was pretty nervous about going to college, but it was also very exciting. I was going to see Nate in a week! Its been way too long, 5 months or so. I just hope things hadn't changed while he was in Arizona.
"Um, hello? Ruby…? You there?"
Olivia was on the other line of the phone. We have become very close since she dropped me off in the forest for me, then told Nate. She was going to college with me and she wanted to meet over at the Vista Mall.
"Yeah, yeah… I'm here. That sounds great. I'll be there in five. 'Kay?"
"Alright. Meet you there."
Five minutes later we were at the mall. We had to get school supplies and things to decorate our dorm with.
"You know," Olivia began, "We have to start taking some pictures now if we want to get these picture frames.
"Ruby? What's the matter, you've been quiet lately."
"I'm sure it's something"
"Nah, really… Nothing. Just kind of nervous about college, that's all.
She was right. There was something wrong. I was nervous about meeting with Nate next week. Super nervous. For all we know he could be, well, different. And have totally forgotten me. I had to snap out of it. Of course he hadn't forgotten about me, he says he still wears my chain. We talked last week. But the thing that really got me nervous was that he had said he had something really important to tell me and he wanted to "talk". What if he had met someone else and he didn't want e anymore. I just HAD to see him to find out what he needed to talk about. This wait is just killing me!
"Ruby!? What is WRONG!"
Oh no I could feel a tear running across my cheek. "I said it was nothing"
"No it's not. You are crying Ruby! So don't tell me it's fine."
"Ruby!!" a stranger yelled.
I turned around. I was kind of hoping to see Nate, but it was Reggie. "Oh. Hey."
"Hey I'm gonna get more stuff… I'll meet you at Jump Java." Olivia said.
"Alright. What's up Reggie?"
"Okay well, Harriet decided that, well, We are living together and…WE ARE GETTING MARRIED! She said yes! Can you believe that!"
"I'm really happy for you guys! That's amazing news! Excuse me, but I have to finish my college shopping, I'm sorry, but that's great news! I'll talk to guys later."
"Alright! Have fun and take care."
"You too, bye!"
I finished shopping and met with Olivia. We got two Java's and we stared on our way back until I got a call from Jamie.
"Hello?" I answered.
"Hey, Ruby! You need to be back at the house now. We have a surprise for you."
"Okay…I'll be right there."
