Surprise Visit

Come Friday, I was found lounging around, bored out of my mind. I repeatedly checked my mailbox for a package my friends promised to send. It wasn’t meant to come until Saturday, but I was excited to receive something from them.

I went into the kitchen to make myself a peanut butter and honey sandwich when I got a phone call. It was one of my best friends.

“Hey, what’s up?”

“I have your jaaaaaaaacket (inside joke), it’s outsiiiiiiiiiide, come and get it!” After some debate, I stepped outside my door and looked around. Nothing. I went down the stairs for a better view. Then my phone rang again, “Did you come outside?”

“Yes, I’m standing outside on the lawn.”

Suddenly I hear running on the stairs behind me and turn to see my three best friends coming towards me, “SURPRISE!”

They had driven 8 hours, starting at 3 in the morning, just to come see me. We spent the whole weekend together, trying to do everything we could in just one day and succeeded pretty well. We went on two hikes (one in the dark), got our cartilage pierced, played hide and seek, went to the movies, and shopped at the mall. We attempted to go to the beach, but we will save that for another trip.

I had so much fun and I am so ecstatic that I was able to see my best friends again! It may have been months since we last saw each other, but everything was still the same exact way it was when I moved away. I know our friendship will survive the years. And I am even more excited for winter break so I can have even more epic adventures!
