Demetreus "Diggy" Sharpp walked into the room with his best friends, Latoya and Andrea "Andi".
Latoya exhaled, "The moment is here!"
Andi replied, "I know!"
Demetreus smiled, "We are finally done!"
Latoya confidently paraded, "I'm excited to start my new life!"
Demetreus agreed, "I loved college life... dreading this real world shit."
Andi walked over to Latoya, "Eh, I'm kinda in the middle."
Andi zipped up Latoya's gown as Latoya zipped up Demetreus'.
Demetreus looked down at his phone and saw his parents calling.
"Damn... the parents!"
Latoya smiled at everyone as they grabbed their belongings and headed towards the door. Demetreus zipped up Andi's gown.
Andi exhaled, "Are we all ready!"
Latoya inhaled, "Yessss!!!"
Demetreus turned and he wiped his tears and said, "I love you girls! I wouldn't have made it this far without you!"
Latoya commanded, "No! He didn't start with the water works! Please, you're gonna set off the whole crew! We will see each other again."
Demetreus smiled as Latoya wiped his tears.
Latoya turned to everyone, and said, "We made it! We should be proud and all the tears shed today will be focused on us, meeting our goals and becoming the professionals we wanted to become, our freshman year."
Andi lead the way and proceeded outside.
Rob, Latoya's boyfriend and Keith, Andi's boyfriend were waiting for them outside of Latoya's apartment with bouquets of roses. Demetreus looked around but no one was around.
Demetreus looked down at his phone. Three days before he got into a minor argument with Mikhael and haven't spoken to him since, but he thought he would still be there, and he wasn't.
Rob pulled his 2010 Nissan Altima out of the parking lot and picked up Keith and the graduates.
