Daisy and her dad left early Tuesday morning. Peach had to face the school day alone. She was sad, but she knew in her heart that Daisy was happy so that made her happy. "Hey, Peach, where's Daisy?" Kimberly asked at school that day. "Oh, um, she's, uh, away." Peach sasid nervously. "Away? Where was she going?" "Look, Kim I really need to get to class. Why don't you call her later?"
This struck Kim as odd because Peach usually wasn't in a hurry and usually told her where Daisy was. "That's okay. I'll just talk to her after school when she has more time." Kimberly thought to herself.
"Hey Peach." Kimberly called after her friend as Peach walked out the doors of the school to go home.
"Hi" Peach said as she walked up to Kim. "Listen, I'd love to stay and chat but I really have to get home."
"Listen Peach, What's going on?" Kimberly said in a low voice. "You're not acting like yourself. Why are you avoiding me?"
"I'm not."
"Yeah, you are."
"Look, I need to get home."
"See! There you go again!" Kimberly said frustrated. "Have I done something to offend you?"
"No, it's not that. It's just that... well... I can't tell you."
"You can't tell me?" Kimberly said exasperatedly. "Well fine then. If that's how it is then I guess we weren't good friends after all."
"Come on Kim. Don't be like that."
"If you can't tell me then what's the point of being friends? Friends are supposed to tell each other everything."
"It's not my fault!" Peach yelled
"Oh yeah? Then who's is it? Your mother's?" Kimberly sarcastically said.
"Yes!"Peach yelled, but Kimberly had already walked away.
