Ready to Jump
I looked up at the sky
as we were walking. It was so blue. It was the thing I loved most
about the California sky, it was mostly sunny in Summer. Ahh,
thank God it's Summer. It's still the beginning of it, which I'm
glad about because I'm nervous about Senior year. I just want to
make it a good year, because I wanna have memories from it. Good
ones. Suddenly I wasn't looking at the sky anymore,
and the sidewalk looked like it was flying toward my face. I then
felt a grip around my waist, and the sidewalk was all I could
see. I tripped, but thankfully Bryson saved me from destroying my
"Woah there Jessa, the sidewalk is not a good place to
suddenly smash your face unto."
He pulled me back up while he was laughing his butt off.
"Well you know, it looked so comfortable and all. So I
thought I'd try it out."
"Good thing I was here to tell you that it's pretty
"Your welcome Jessa."
He was still holding on to my waist and just looking at me.
"You can let go now."
He removed his
hands and what do you know? We were in front of his house. We
walked to the porch, and I stood next to him while he unlocked
the door. His parents both work, and they travel a lot. They know
that we're best friends, and they are completely fine with us
hanging out. He walked to his fridge and pulled out two water
"Here ya go."
He looked a little better, but since I knew him so well I could
tell he was still thinking about Maddie.
We walked down to his basement where his biggest tv was, and
where all the movies were.
"Yeah?" I said searching through his movies.
"For what exactly?"
"Always making me feel better. I appreciate it."
"Bry, we're best friends. As weird as it may be to other
people, we help each other out."
"I know, why can't people just accept that a girl and a guy
could be best friends?"
"I know right, people these days."
I sat on the floor in front of the tv putting in the dvd. When it
closed I scooched back and laid on the floor with a pillow under
my head. Bryson took a seat beside me on the couch.
"What movie is it?"
"It's a surprise."
What I really did was put in a home video of his birthday party
from the 7th grade. We laughed so hard at how stupid we
looked, and we made jokes about each other.
"Well you were right Jessa, that made me pee my
"Ew, really?" I said and made a disgusted face, but I
couldn't hold in my laughter. We started laughing even more, and
my stomach hurt by the end of it.
"Jessa, I love your laugh."
