My Best Friend

October26

“WAKE UP!” Laura screeched in my ear. I jumped out of bed rubbing my ear.

“ Why did you do that?” I yelled back noticing that she is in her as swimsuit. I looked around the room, trying to find a clock , the room had 2 beds and a big TV. After a while I finally found a clock. It was 5:30 in the morning, I started at her mouth open. Why was she wearing her swimsuit already? Swimming starts in three hours I thought.

“I’m going back to sleep.” I moaned.

I woke up later that day to the sound of the TV blaring the screen flashing colours. I tried to concentrate on what the show was. I got out of bed to check the time it was 7:45. We were about to be late, I hurried to see if Laura was there but she had already left!

Thinking is Laura actually my friend? Why would she just leave me like that? I still couldn’t believe that Laura had ditched me! In Hong Kong she would never do this. My eyes filled with tears everything got blurry. I started to stuff everything I need into my swim bag. I went to the bathroom to get my goggles and looked up at the mirror, and stared at my face my eyes dark brown and my hair all tangled up in a big knot. I stormed out of my room running to the swimming pool I was a cheetah running after its prey. I got there but it was to late. Face red I walked to our coach. My coach was yelling at everyone who came late,

“GO GO GO! COME ON YOU ARE NOT SNAILS!” The coach yelled as we came to the pool. Even Laura was late. After that we went into the pool. I went into a lane with Ellie. I didn’t want to be Laura. We swam 5X700 meters main stroke. I swam IM.

“What stroke are you swimming?” “I was panting hard my head pounding after I finished the last 700. I got out of the water. I started to walk back to my room. Ellie came with me, I went to my room to change and go to breakfast. Ellie was comforting me when I told her about what happened this morning. When we got to the buffet, I smelled the delicious food looking at all the choices. Everyone was talking and laughing. I sat next to Isabelle and Gaby.

“Was training hard?” I asked before going to get food. They where in a higher group than me. When I went to get my food I was Laura. She ignored me as usual. After a long training I was starving. I gobbled down the food like a hungry tiger and went back to my room, but before going I went earlier than Laura because I wanted to think of what to say to her about leaving me alone in the room. She came an hour later. We still had 30 minuets left for break, after wards we had land training.

“ Why did you not wake me up to go to practice if you were already awake?” I said, “ If you were sleeping and it was time to go then I would have woken you up.”

“Well I didn’t say that I never tried,” she rolled her eyes and said, “what ever.” went to pack her stuff. For this whole week I am going to ignore her I thought.

The next day…When I woke up I saw a note near my bed. I looked around and Laura was no there. Why again I thought. I picked up the note. In it said.

Dear Sun Young

I am sorry about what I did. I hope you will forgive me.

From Laura

Heart pounding. I changed into my tracksuit and went to the track. When I got there everyone had been stretching so I joined. The land training was cycling so we went into the room with all the cycling machines. We started to cycle. There was different exercise that we did. Afterwards our coach let us have donuts and we had a contest to see who can eat it the fastest without licking there lips because they were powdered donuts. “Yes!” I screeched. I won so coach Frankie gave me another donut. After, I went to my room. Laura was there.

I went over and said, “Sorry.”

“It’s okay, it wasn’t your fault it was mine.” she said

I thought maybe she is not as bad as I thought she would be.
