“Gwen, you have company,” my grandmother smiled. “Tabitha’s here, and she only has a few minutes,” then she left.
Gwen pointed at me. “You are so lucky,” she got up and headed for the doorway, and then she turned around. “This conversation is not over.”
I rolled my eyes and took a deep breath. What do I do now? I grabbed a hand full of chocolate kisses and followed Gwen into the book store.
“So, we meet again,” Tabitha said.
“Yeah,” I smiled.
Gwen glanced over her shoulder and then looked at Tabitha. “You too know each other,” she frowned.
“We meet this morning,” Tabitha smiled. “Robin forgot her lunch money, so we had to chase them down on the way to school.”
I walked up to the counter and stood next to Gwen. “Would you like a Hersey Kiss?” I opened my hand and offered her some.
“Oh…yeah,” Tabitha grabbed a couple. “Thanks,” she smiled and then un-wrapped one and put it in her mouth. “Mmmm…I love these.”
“Me too,” I smiled. “Gwen, you want one?”
“Sure,” she took a Hersey Kiss and started to unwrap it.
The bell rang over the door, and we looked to see who it was. Two girls walked into the book store, one girl had blonde hair and blue eyes and the other one had reddish-brown hair and brown eyes.
“Great! Just what I need,” Tabitha rolled her eyes and made a face.
