Max’s Friends

They are all good people. Some of them are lazy, but they are good people. Julie is trying to make her life better than it is now. Too bad Kele and Ben keep dragging her down. They have never taken much too seriously in life. I know because I used to joke around with them. The three of them haven’t changed since I last talked to them.

Lisa is still as tough as ever. She apologized for hitting me weeks earlier.

“It’s okay,” I told her. Lisa gritted her teeth.

“It’s sounding when you do that,” she said. I looked at her as I rubbed my cheek where she had punched me.

“Huh?” I asked. Lisa shook her head at me.

“You are hopeless,” she said.

“I’m sorry.”

“Shut up.”

I lowered my head.

Gordon and Kris are doing well. I ran into them again last week. At first, I was confused on the status of their relationship. I made the mistake of asking them out right.

“So… are you two dating?” I asked. Krista’s cheeks turned bright red while Gordon spat out his tea. I looked at both of them with a blank look on my face.

“What?” I asked.

“Oh hell no!” Gordon shouted. He got up and stormed off to his room while Krista hung her head, still blushing. I don’t know what I said to cause all of that. I think they would make a cute couple. I guess I could be wrong.

Russell’s doing good. He stopped by here yesterday in fact. He and Natalia seem to be getting along a lot better lately.

“How is Natalia doing?” I asked him.

“Good,” Russell said. I just had to open my mouth again with this question.

“Are you dating?” I asked. I frowned when I realized what I had asked. I expected him to get offended and glare at me. Instead, Russell shrugged.

“I hope so,” was all he said. I raised my eyebrow at him.

“What does that mean?” I asked. His shrug made realized that he was just as weird as ever. I don’t even think he cares to grow out of it either. Anyway, onto other things.

Ah yes, the twins. Robin and Matt are doing good too. In fact, Robin’s moved back in with her dad and brother. That… still needs little work apparently.

“How is she holding up?” I asked Matt over the phone this morning.

“Not so good, actually,” he admitted. “I am starting to remember why she ran away from home in the first place.” I lowered my eyes.

“I’m sorry to hear that,” I murmured. It reminds me of my current situation. I shook my head.

Anyway, that’s everyone. Back to the story…
