Part 1: Cooper
Suddenly, form registration had ended and Nick and I were walking to the gate to meet Justin.
“Hey!” he shouted, waving like a maniac.
“Hello!” Nick replied.
I just smiled and waved.
We walked out of the gate and down the street, bustling with students. Justin and Nick were talking about the current global warming situation. I decided it was time for an apology. I stopped walking. My two friends turned to face me.
“Cooper, are you okay?” Nick asked.
“I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have stormed off-”
“I’m a terrible friend, and you guys deserve someone better-”
“I promise from now on that I will be a better person and try my best to make you guys happy-”
“COOPER!” Justin snapped me out of my word-vomiting apology.
“I’m just sorry,” I murmured.
“So are we. We were stupid to think about it instead of telling you up front.” Nick explained.
We all smiled and hugged. I put my arms around my best friends shoulders. We continued to walk down the street.
We walked like that in silence for a while, until I said:
“Back to your strange theory, I think I have some evidence,”
Justin’s jaw dropped and Nick put a hand over his gaping mouth.
“Jasmine was talking to me-”
“Talking?” Nick asked.
“No, insulting, but still. I replied, and she blushed. Like red in the cheeks,” I continued.
Justin gasped melodramatically.
“Interesting,” Nick was thinking.
“Nick, you need to tell Peggy. She’ll work this out I’m sure,” Justin ordered.
Nick nodded: “Will do.”
“Good to know I can count on you guys!” I smiled.
We all laughed.
We arrived at Justin’s house a few minutes later.
He walked up to his door and turned to face us.
“I know that’s it cringy, but I really love you guys,” Justin smiled.
“We know you walking cringe parade,” I joked.
We all laughed and Justin disappeared into his house.
“Goodbye, Cooper!” Nick waved as he walked down the street. We live in opposite directions, so Justin’s house is generally where we say goodbye.
“Bye!” I walked in the direction of my house, pleased that my friends and I were on good terms.
