Chapter 1

Bittersweet Endings and New Beginnings

It's 4:57 in the afternoon, and I just finished reading Prince Caspian. I throw the book on my "Read" pile, which has been rapidly growing since school got out. If only I could find an adventure! Like Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit. Or volunteer for something dangerous to save someone I love like Katniss Everdeen. The only adventure I found recently was reading. And watching Mrs. Catcher's spoiled poodle. And that is NOT an adventure.

"Myrtle!" my mother calls from downstairs.

"Yes?"

"Phone!"

I rush downstairs, wondering who it is.
"Hello?" I speak into the phone.

"Myrtle, it's me, Rebecca Lawrence."
Oh joy. My ex-best friend.

"Hi Rebecca."

"It's Becky, remember?"

"Whatever."

I sigh. Ever since Becky started hanging out with Sierra Maverton, I haven't been speaking to her.

"Can we be friends again, please? Sierra is SO boring. Not like you."
I smile, happy that Becky wants to be friends again.

"Sure. Hey, I'm sorry for ignoring you."

"Me too."

"Can you come over tomorrow? I have something to show you." Becky sounds REALLY excited.

"What is it?"

"I don't know."

Suddenly, Mom calls.
"Myrtle, get off the phone! I'm expecting an important business call!"

Sighing, I say goodbye to Becky and hang up. Maybe, Becky isn't as bad as I thought she was...

***
Over dinner, I ask Mom if I could go over to Becky's tomorrow.
"I thought you two weren't speaking to each other." she says.

"We weren't, but, we found... mutual understanding!"

"Uh-huh. Well, I guess it wouldn't hurt to patch up a friendship. Go ahead. But be back before dark!"

Score! Now, I wonder what Becky wanted to show me...
