Definitely Different

Day 37:  Xzavion Mikhael "Kel" Johnson

View Point: Kel ___________________________________________________

I walked outside and found myself smiling. This is definitely a different feeling, cause I don't smile. I guess I can call Demetreus a friend. I don't have a lot of those... but he is definitely different.

I walk out into the parking lot and got into my car. I placed my books in the back seat and realized that I had a missed call from Malik.

I picked up the phone and called him.


Malik replied, "Hey... can we talk?"

"What's wrong?" I was concerned.

"A lot has happened to me this week after I left you in Pennsylvania. I want to come up this weekend and have a personal conversation with you. You are my best friend and I can't lie to you anymore."

"Lie? Personal Conversation? What is going on?! I don't like this! Tell me, Malik!" I said.

"Not over the phone, but know that you are my homie for life, but I'm tired of the deceit!"

"Yo!! I'm not liking this!!"

"I'll call you later!"


"Love you Mikhael!"


*Dial Tone*

I was pissed! Why would he do that!! I punched the horn on the steering wheel. 

Demetreus jumped and dropped his bags. 

"Oh SH*T! I said as I realized I scared him again!

I opened the door and popped my head out.

Demetreus yelled across the street: "You like scaring me? That's the second bottle I broke today."

"My fault! Something just pissed me off, and I punched the wheel not thinking it was going to beep."

"Are you okay? Do you need a hot chocolate to calm you down?" He looked concerned, but then he followed up with a sarcastic joke.

I chuckled, "I would but your closed... I guess you won't be able to provide your legendary service now?"

Demetreus giggled as he walked over to my car, "Here you go Kel, this was for myself, but I always produce legendary service. Here you go, I haven't tasted it yet."

I was surprised, but couldn't take it.

"Thank you, but keep it, smart ass. Sorry that I scared you."

Demetreus smiled, "Good, cause I really wanted it!" We both laughed.

Demetreus threw the bag with the broken bottle into the trash can and said, "Good night Mikhael, don't let people piss you off."

I interrupted , "Your absolutely right."

We said together, "Life is too short..." and then we both laughed.

"Good night Demetreus."

"Good night Kel." Demetreus said as he walked over to his car.

The End
