Sakura nervously walked into the school. She looked around for Aqua, who normally
met her at the door. But, she was nowhere to be seen! Sakura walked the halls,
searching desperately for Aqua until the five-minute bell rang. Then, she ran back to
her classroom, hoping she would get there before the late bell. When she got there,
she sat down quietly and began to worry.
"Where is Aqua? She could just be absent, but she told me she was going for the
perfect attendance award! She wouldn't stay home just for a small cold. Is she really
sick? Or is it... something worse?"
When Sakura got home from a lonely day at school, she ran to Aqua's house, wondering
if she was okay. When she got there, she found Aqua's mom in tears. She asked what
was wrong, and she learned that Aqua had run away during the night. However, she had
left a note for her parents and a box in her room. On the box, she had written, "Give
Sakura went home and opened the box. In it, she found a note. She picked up the note,
and it said,
Hi Sakura. I bet you're wondering why I ran away. Well, when I came home from the
pond that night, I found a note on my desk. On it was written,
"You keep defending little miss dressy. Now, if I see you by that girl again, I
will make sure she is miserable for the rest of the year. And you, too. You want to
see your friend tortured? I didn't think so. But, if you become friends with me,
without even telling her about this note, I'll leave her alone. What do you choose?"
I didn't want to see you tortured. You're my best friend! But I didn't want to be
friends with Sarie, either. So I did the only thing I could think of- I ran away. I
hope you understand. You can call me on my cell phone, at least until it runs out of
charge. Then... maybe I can call you from a pay phone... if I have enough money. Or
maybe I'll write... If I can afford the pencil, paper, envelope, and stamp. I hope
to see you again... someday.
-Love, your best friend,
Sakura sat for a moment, dumbfounded. How could Sarie do something that mean? I
mean... they had been friends... once. Now Aqua, her only friend, was gone. Then, she
dug deeper into the box. She found a little jewelry box. She opened it slowly... and
found a charm bracelet. It had been Aqua's favorite.
"I'll miss her," thought Sakura.
Then, she knew what she had to do. She had to find Aqua.
