Friendship is a wonderful thing. You should know that I grew up as a quiet, obedient child who always avoided trouble when I can. I didn't have too many friends because I didn't seek out people in in the first place. Only thing I needed was my small circle and we could conquer the world together. Friendship is something that everyone needs, no matter who they are. We trust our friends with our deepest secrets and we rely on them during our toughest times. We love our friends.

I was sitting below my mother, staring at her ruby red carpet as she styles my hair for the day. "Remember to ALWAYS be on your best behavior, Remiah. This is one of the best schools in the area you're going to. I had to work hard to get you here." I simply responded to her with a "Yes, ma'am" and went back to staring down at the ground.

While I could've easily contended her, I just didn't want to put our friendship at higher risk of ending, so I passively packed up my belongings, called my parents and waited outside. I felt ashamed and my parents questioned why they had to come get me after dropping me off two hours ago. I lied, and I said that Lisa began feeling unwell. Lisa ignored me while we were at school while I tried to apologize for making her upset despite it not being my fault. She brushes me off and ignores me for the following week. Soon after, she starts talking to me again like nothing happened which really confused me. Did she forget what happened?

She would throw us under the bus to save her own skin. It should've been clear to me
