This summer has been great! Camp has been so fun. So how has the nut hut been recently? You still talking to black beard? Since I know they won’t give you this letter any way I might as well just put random stuff on it. Like, Bat rat cat mat flat bo co mo po eo toe low crow bow blow blah blah blibbidy blah blah blah! 1234567899876543211211112332112344321. I AM SUPER LONLEY YOU COULD REALLY JUST WRITE ONE STINKING LETTER MOM! ARNT YOU SUPPOSED TO CARE AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!
With anger, Mariana”
I sighed and crumped up my letter. It ended up on the floor with a hundred others. My mom hasn’t answered any of my letters for three years I don’t even know why I am trying. About then someone knocked on the door. “What do you need!?” I tried to sound cheery.
“Mariana! Come on! I know that you’re trying to write your mother again! Natalia told me! You know that it’s not healthy!” my closest friend screamed through the door.
“GO AWAY JESS I don’t want to hear it!” I shouted back.
“Mari you are 17! Quit acting like a three year old! Besides it’s almost lunch time. Just come out before I go get your brother/sister!”
“FINE! I’ll be out in a second.” I hurried to change into something other than my pajamas.
Jess was grinning like an idiot so I knew she was up to something. She pulled a bottle of mountain dew from behind her back. “Happy 11 year at camp! Look I got you a real mountain dew! It took some serious bribing to get that. Ohh! Also! Guess what!!!! Guess what!!!! Ohhh!!! WE ARE GOING SAILING!!!! Today right after lunch! Just you Taylor and I!”
Wow she was excited. She even managed to make me smile, and feel like an idiot for having such an attitude, I mean sure my mom dropped me off 4 years ago and never came back or told me she was getting therapy and my uncle had to tell me. And sure my mom refuses to answer my letters, but who needs her when I have friends like Jess…
At lunch as I sacrificed part of my food to the gods I muttered a short prayer to my dad. “Umm… Poseidon, err, uh Dad? Can you. Maybe just let me know how my mom is? Anything would be good…… so yeah I guess that’s all thanks…”
“OK!!! Are you ready for sailing!!!!?”
“Well actually jess I think I would rather get back to letter writing… it’s kinda my hobby…… and sword practice….” I glanced at her.
“But Mari I am leaving tomorrow! This is our last chance to hang out! And this was hard to arrange! Please!!”
I sighed “fine I’ll come! You happy? I will get on the boat and sail.”
“YES!!! Hurry up Taylor is waiting!!!” She grabbed my hand and dragged me to the lake. “Hurry up!!!!!!”
Even though I did not want to be there sailing was super fun. We were out there until the sun went down.
“Bye Jess! Before you leave make sure to find me and say bye ok?” I yelled after jess as they walked to her cabin.
“OK! We should be back in a few months! See you tomorrow………ns 22.214.171.124da2
