A couple of weeks ago, I'd fallen out with Chantal - but she'd begged me to become friends with her again.
The first day back was going well, as I greeted my friends and waited for Chantal to arrive (she usually arrrives a little bit later than the rest of us). Then, Chantal came round the corner. I smiled at her, but she didn't even look at me. Instead, she walked staight past me a hugged Sacha and Gabi.
I went up to her, but she just said 'Hi.'. The next minute the bell went, and we all dashed off to our tutor. Dawn and Beckie have a different tutor, but the rest of us were in the same tutor.
During tutor time, everything seemed to go Ok as Chantal and I sat next to eachother.
Suddenly, after coming out of tutor, Chantal thrust me an Easter egg. Yum. Chantal asked me for hers. But the thing was, I hadn't managed to get her one.
I knew that if I told her this she'd get angry, as she was known for having a short temper. So, consequently, I just told her I'd bring it in within the next few days.
At the end of that day, I walked home with Dawn; who solemny pointed out that I seemed quieter than usual. ''Oh,'' I said, sighing, slightly with relief because I knew at least someone cared.
Dawn asked me what was wrong, and I explained the events of the day. Dawn then told me about Laura, a girl from her primary who had tried to steal Dawn's best friend, Carmen. Carmen had realised what Laura was up to, and put a stop to it.
At least I'm not the only one then, I thought with relief.
Dawn also told me to give Chantal some space, and hopefully, things will work out for the best.
