"Amanda's in the hospital!" Janice cried.
"I'm sorry, i have to go."
"Wait, I'm going too." I decided.
"Yah. Come by my house in a couple of minutes. We'll walk to the hospital together."
"Okay." I heard some sniffling. I realized Amanda had been a pretty good friend to
her and that she must be upset.
"Are you going to be allright?"
"Yah, I mean, she's just in the hospital right? She's not dead..."
"Of course. So, I'll see you in a couple of minutes."
"All right." I heard the beep of her haning up, then hung up myself. I ran up to my
bedroom to change out of my school clothes. It was getting cool so i threw on some
jeans and a sweater. I told my mom I was going to visit Amanda in the hosptial with
Janice, then waited outside on the porch. When i saw Janice approaching, I walked
down the driveway, onto my street, Birch Rd.
"Hey Vanessa." Janice mumbled.
"Hey, are you sure you're okay?"
"Yah. Yah I'm fine." she said, not sounding to sure herself.
"Okay then. I looked up the hospital on the internet. Visiting hours end at 7:00, so
we should be okay." We started walking down the street. I noticed Janice wasn't even
looking at, but at her feet. I was going to ask her if she was okay again, but
decided against it.
We didn't talk any more until we got to the hospital. The lady at the front door told
us Amanda was in room 103. We walked up the stairs to the second floor and found the
room. Amanda was sitting in her bed, watching the t.v that was up in the corner. I
should of guessed she'd be watching soaps. As i thought about it, my life started to
resemble a soap opera more and more every day.
"Hi Amanda." Janice whispered.
"Oh, Jan, you're here, and you brought Van." She sneered after calling me Van.
"Yah, I came to see how you are. Jan is my friend, so I thought I'd try and be your
"So, what happened?" Jan asked.
"Well, I'm sure you heard about the little mistake Stan made the other day?"
"Yah, sorry about that."
"I'm fine. I got a new guy. His name's Lane. He's totally hot!" Wow, she's quick on
the rebound! "Anyway, I was a little upset and, well... I cut myself a little too
"Oh my gosh! This is all because of Stan!" Janice complained. I felt really bad all
of a sudden. Wow, she almost died... because of the guy that asked me out. I mean,
she's fine, but if she had died, i would have felt awful! A nurse came into the room
and told us visiting hours were almost over. We said our good byes and started back
home. Janice seemed a little mad, so I didn't talk. Then, as we neared my house, she
"Amanda almost died because of Stan! And, he asked you out, right after dumping her,
so it's all your fault!"
"What? How can you say that. I didn't talk with him, he just sat down and talked to
me! How can you say this is my fault!?" I didn't really believe it, but i couldn't
agree, could i?
"Whatever, just go home."
I walked up the porch steps and looked back as Janice walked away. I felt awful. Just
as we were starting to be friends again, Amanda has to go and ruin it, AGAIN!
"Mom, i'm home." I called out.
"Hey hun. how's Amanda?"
"She's fine. Janice is mad at me again though." I sat down on the family room couch,
beside my mom, who had been watching t.v, but then turned it off.
"Why? I thought you guys were friends again."
"So did i, but Amanda cut herself really deep after being dumped by Stan..."
"Wait, didn't Stan ask you to go to the pizza place?"
"Yah, that's why Jan is mad at me. She says that Stan broke up with Amanda so that he
could go out with me!"
"Well, she has a point."
"Hey, you're my mom, you're always supposed to be on my side!"
"I am on your side, but he did ask you out right after he dumped her right?"
"Well, he asked if I wanted to go to the pizza place with him and his friends, not a
date per say."
"Uh huh, right."
"UGGHH!!!" I groaned. Then, I ran out of the room, up the stairs, into my room, then
slammed the door.
"Moms are supposed to make you feel better, not worse!" I mumbled. "Jeesh!"
I slapped down onto my bed, picked up my backpack, opened my homework books, ready to
do homework, but still not doing it.
Then, the phone rang. It was Janice. I picked it up reluctantly.
"Hello." I grumbled.
"Yah. What do you want?"
"I just wanted to apologize."
"For what?" I asked, my voice softening a little.
"For being so mean. After all, you did go with me to see a girl you don't really
like. Then, I got all Godzilla on you and I really didn't mean it."
"Aw, Jan. It's fine. You had a bit of a point though."
"Even so, I shouldn't have done that to you. I apologize."
"Well, apology accepted!"
"So, can i ask you something?"
"Sure, what is it?"
"What did you get for number eight of the math homework?" Janice started giggling.
Then, i started giggling, and soon, we both were laughing so hard, I had tears in my
