I had to spend the next two days with Aisha. She literally ruined my life, but I didn’t have anything better to do. Also I had no choice, it was part of being probation.
“Good morning,” Aisha said, interrupting my thoughts.
“Hi” I mumbled.
“I think we should go canoeing, today. What do you think?”
“Sure. Why not?” I replied.
“I’ll go get changed and pack us a lunch.” Aisha said enthusiastically.
“Okay, I’ll get some towels and I’ll meet you at the docks in an hour,” I responded.
“Wow! This lake is sooo big.” I said in awe.
“Sure is, now I was thinking we could go to the west side of the lake, take the creek into the woods and picnic there,” she said.
“Whatever, as long as I don’t get wet.” I replied.
“I can’t guarantee that, Novia….”
“I’ve never been boating before,” I cautioned.
“There is a first to everything.” Aisha said eagerly.
Next thing I knew I was in the boat. I prayed I wouldn’t die or fall in.
It was so calm and peaceful in the boat. Gentle breezes. Water reflecting the trees. Sun shining gently on our heads. It was beautiful.
I hoped I could somehow convince Novia to like me and find out why she was pranking me. Maybe it would stop and we could become friends!
We made it to the creek which was completely in the woods. I saw a perfect spot to stop.
“The food looks really good,” Novia said.
“Yup, but they didn’t have any chocolate cupcakes at the mess hall,” I exclaimed.
“AWW, those are my favorite,” she replied.
“Mine too!” I said.
“Hey, I’m sorry for how I’ve acted and I really mean it.” She said out of the blue.
“I forgive you, but why did you play that last prank anyway?”
“Because I thought I could get you to leave camp and I definitely don’t want to go home,” She confessed.
“Me neither, but why did you want to get rid of me in the first place?” I questioned.
Well you see… and then she told me all about how she liked Josh and then saw me with him and assumed we were dating. She also thought I read her diary.
I was laughing so hard. That’s what this was all about? Josh is cousin and best friend but I moved so we haven’t seen each other in forever!
“Now I feel really bad….” She said.
“Serves you right!” I replied.
“I think we should start heading back,” she said.
“Okay, I’m fine with that. I’ll go get the boat,” I responded.
We rowed back in silence.
“What should we do now?” I asked.
“I think I want to take a nap,” said Novia.
“Okay, I guess I’ll read then.”
And that was the end of our trip. I guess we’ll get to know each other better tomorrow.
——————————————————————————————————————–Okay, now you know who Josh is, for all of you that were wondering. I’m not quite sure if the finale will be in one part or two. Once again thank you to my brother for helping me take these pictures. The second time I took them, the dolls were unharmed. Can you tell the difference between the first and second take? That was literally so many random topics put together…. Anyways, that’s all for now:)
