My heart was like a racecar going 150 mph. Excitement, nerves, and uncertainty filled my chest. I was finally on my way to my friend Brandon’s house for the first time since he left. We were good friends for all of middle school until he moved to his new school.

He had made plenty of new friends at the new school. He was always good at making friends. I had met some of these friends over PlayStation and texting, so we were not complete strangers. But this was my first time finally meeting them face to face, hence my excitement mixed with nervousness.

My hands were burning and all I could smell was honey barbecue boneless wings as I sat in the driveway. I owed Mekai, one of Brandon’s new friends, the wings after a lost bet over PlayStation. I walked in the door to the smell of pumpkin pie, and Brandon standing in the kitchen with Mekai, his dad, and stepmom.

The rest of the night was a fun and memorable time. I made five new friends during our time at the Haunted Catacombs that night, and even ended up dating one of the girls I met. I see now there was nothing to worry about, and many people I met that weekend I still talk to on a daily basis.
