Sleepovers, Different Schools, Phones…What Else Can Go Wrong?
“3:30 am,” said Kimmy, s she gave her best friend, Lucy, the time.
“Ugh, I am soooo tried,” said Lucy.
“Yeah, but we should be happy we beat out time,” said Kimmy.
“3:30, 2:30…an hour! Wow! Most of the time it is like ten minutes,” said
“I like your name a lot. I wish I had your name,” said Lucy.
Kimmy knew they would get to this part. The talk – about – anything – talk was
boring, but interesting at some points.
“Why? Because you are named after a show,” said Kimmy.
“But, no on has your name,” said Lucy.
This was true. Kimmy did like it, but didn’t at the same time.
“You get made fun of.”
“Oh, did you hear that Becca is doing drugs?”
“No, but did…” started Kimmy, but Lucy cut her off.
“Yeah, and she asked some people to do dugs with her,” said Lucy.
“Then it is not…” started Kimmy, but Lucy cut her off again.
“TRUE!” yelled Lucy.
“Shhh! You are going to wake my parents up.”
“Sorry, I just…”
“Need to sleep.”
“Yeah, good night!”

On Monday both the girls went to school. When they got there they saw
something very wrong.
“What’s going on?” asked Lucy.
“Don’t know. Maybe we should ask a teacher,” said Kimmy. Just then Miss
Gordon came up to them.
“Welcome back, but I am afraid you guys didn’t hear....about the massage.”
“What message?” asked the girls at the same time. All the students were there,
but there was a long line at the school it even went outside!
“This school is no longer a school. It is being shout down, and I need you guys to
stand in line, and wait your turn to see which school you guys are going to,” said
The girls got in line, but they couldn’t stop thinking which school they had to go
to. Both the girls thought most about going to different schools, but they never
talked about it.
“Name please,” said the girl behind the counter.
The girl went through some papers, and finally found Kimmy’s.
“Here you are. Look’s like you are going to Hubble, instead of being at this
school, Lincoln,” said the girl.
“Okay and what is the other school?” asked Kimmy.
“Edison,” said the girl.
“Thanks,” said Kimmy walking away to get on the bus to go home.
“New girl…what is your name?” asked the girl.
“I hope I get to go to Hubble,” said Lucy.
“Name?” asked the girl again.
“Oh right. Lucy Colors.”
The girl went through some papers and found Lucy’s.
“Looks like you are going to Edison,” said the girl.
“What!” said Lucy.
“Here, and hurry up to get to the bus,” said the girl. Lucy grabbed the paper,
and went to the bus. She found Kimmy, and sat next to her.
“What school?” asked Kimmy.
“Edison,” said Lucy.
“What? Different schools? Not cool.”
“Well, only half can go to your school, and only half can go to mine.”
“But you are my only friend.”
“I know, and this starts tomorrow.”
“Yeah…too bad. We will be cleaning our lockers.
“Then setting up our new ones.”
“Finally, going to classes.”
“But with out each other,” said both of them at the same time. The rest of the
bus ride was silence. Everyone was sad, because most of them weren’t going to the
* * *
Kimmy came in at 9:00 am to clean out her locker. Once Lucy would get here she would
help her. At 9:10 Lucy finally got to the school.
“Hey,” said Kimmy.
“Hey, ready to clean?” asked Lucy.
“Yeah, let’s finish my locker.”
“Ok, then my locker!”
Kimmy and Lucy packed and clean their lockers.
“Bye, got to go to my school,” said Kimmy.
“Me too. Have fun and good luck making new friends,” said Lucy.
“Thanks. Good luck to you, too!”
Then they both got into their parent’s car. Their parents drove them in opposite
directions. When Kimmy got to her new school, Hubble, she went to the office with her
“Hello,” said Kimmy.
“Hi, welcome to Hubble. Paper please?” asked the lady behind the counter. Kimmy
handed her the paper.
“Well, let’s start with your classes. Oh, this will work.” Then the printer
printed her classes. “Here, I will show your classes later, but locker first. Just
follow me,” she said while getting up. Kimmy grabbed the piece of paper with her
classes on it, and said good bye to her. Then she followed the lady.
“I am so sorry about your school. Oh, wait did I tell you my name?”
“No,” said Kimmy.
“Ops, sorry. Well, my name is Mrs. Flower. I work at the office, and you will see
me I you need any help. Oh, look here is your locket.
“It’s black, my old one was red.”
“Yes, we have black and blue. Blue is upstairs, and we are downstairs.”
“Oh, what’s my number?
“Oh, unlucky numbers.”
“Well, I will let you put your stuff away. Come back to the office when you are
done.” Kimmy nodded, and opened her locker. She saw her lock and practiced her lock
for a little bit. Then she put the paper in her packet. Finally, she started to put
her stuff away. She wondered what Lucy was doing that very minute.
* * *
Lucy walked right in the school.
“Hey, Becca,” said Lucy.
“Hey, I didn’t know you were going to this school.”
“Hello, you must be Lucy Colors. Here are your classes, map, and your lock,”
said the lady behind the counter. “My name is Miss Honey, and I am really busy, so
you have to find it your self. Sorry!”
“It’s OK, I understand,” said Lucy.
“Good luck,” said Miss Honey smiling. Lucy took the map, and looked at it. She
found her locket was on the first floor next to Mrs. Mad. She also found out her
locket number was 1313…unlucky.
Lucy went to her locket to unpack and then, went around a few times, and found her
classes. Then she stopped at the office again.
“Bye, going home!” said Lucy.
“Bye!” yelled Miss Honey.
Lucy walked out of the school and found her parent’s car. When she was home she
was going to pick up the phone and call Kimmy.
* * *
After they got off the phone they both learned that they had the same locker number.
They laughed about it, and were saying faith did that. They also learned that they
were going to have a sleepover on Friday.
* * *
The first day of their new schools, and Kimmy took the new bus. She saw Katie at the
new bus stop.
“Hey, Kimmy,” said Katie.
“Hey,” said Kimmy.
“Lucy going to Edison?”
“Lucky, she got to go to the bigger school.”
“Is Becca going to school there, too?
“Well, I guess fate sent us to be friends.”
“Yeah, I am just so happy that I know you.”
“Me too.” Just then Kimmy wished she could be friends with all three of them.
Kimmy was having a sleepover at her house, so she thought she could invite them.
“Hey, you want to come to a sleepover at my house on Friday?”
“Could you also invite Becca?”
Just then the bus came and both of them found a seat and sat down. Kimmy wished she
and Lucy was still going to the same school. She wondered what Lucy was doing right
there and then.
* * *
Lucy didn’t want to take the bus to school, so her mom drove her. Once she got
there, Becca was waiting for her there.
“Hey!” said Becca.
“Hey,” said Lucy.
“Hopefully I will get through the day without anyone asking me a ton of questions,
“Yeah, me too. I have to go to my locker, but see you in the halls, and classes.
“OK…bye!” Lucy walked away, and found her locker.
“Crap, new people said Taylor, the meanest girl Edison.
“Nice to meet you, too,” said Lucy.
“Great and she talks.”
“Look all I want is to get to my locker, so if you move I won’t talk to you,”
said Lucy. Taylor moved.
“Sorry,” said Taylor.
“Now you are nice to me?” asked Lucy.
“Yeah, because you are just like me. I am Taylor.”
“Thanks, and I am Lucy.”
“Cool, I wish I had more time to talk, but I don’t. See you at lunch,” said
“OK,” said Lucy happy that she made a new friend. She hoped that Kimmy makes a
new friend, too. She would be so proud of her friend. Actually they would both be
proud of each other. They might laugh about it, but a good laugh.
* * *
Friday, night right before the sleepover Lucy called her. She just wanted to know if
her new friend would come, too. Kimmy was proud of her friend, so she said it was
fine. Soon after the phone call everyone was at Kimmy’s house.
“Ugh, what time is it?” asked Becca.
“Only midnight,” said Taylor.
“I will say this is the best sleepover!” said Lucy.
“Yeah,” said Kimmy.
“We need to do something,” said Taylor.
“Let’s talk!” yelled Katie.
“No, something better,” said Becca.
“I got it! Get your shoes on and coats! Then follow me!” said Taylor.
I will finish it later!
