I hope you like the finale! Any picture that has a golden tint to it is supposed to be a flash back by the way. The pictures turned strangely gritty when I edited them. Sorry.
Girls, this is really hard for me to tell you and before I tell you, you have to tell each other some things about your family.
“I doubted that Ashia would ever know what it’s like to lose her mom,” I thought.
“Novia, my mom died from pneumonia a few years ago and I am a foster kid now,” Ashia told me.
Wow, I thought my story would be hard to tell. My mom was killed by cancer a few years ago. I’ve been really missing her.”
“The reason I asked you to share this is because , your moms went to this camp, they were best friends and they buried a time capsule back in 9th grade for you to find. I was best friends with them, too. I knew that I always wanted to work here and so they asked me to give you a map to the time capsule.”
“Is this the right spot?” Ashia questioned.
“I hope so!” I said
Aisha and I were at the beach a few days later, searching for the time capsule. What would we find inside?
“I found it! Let’s dig it up!” I exclaimed.
Let’s take this back to the beach house and find out what’s inside!
“Okay, Lexi. Did you bring the stuff?”
“Yes I did. We have to assemble this time capsule quickly.”
“What if I never get married or we don’t have girls, Lexi?”
“Trust me Gabby, we will.”
“We could always adopt….” Gabby said.
“Now that the time capsule is buried what do we do?”Lexi asked.
We make a map of it and give it to Maddie, to hide. She’ll keep it safe for the girls.
Aisha/ Lexi’s POV
“Why did they do this?” I asked.
“I don’t know, but they were pretty cool.”
I sniffed. It was the first time I had come to the beach with out Gabby and also my last time to come.
I wondered if my little Novia would ever find the time capsule. How would she ever get to camp? I had wanted to send her this year, but decided against it, knowing it would be our last summer together.
I dug up the time capsule for the millionth time. We had added so many things to it over the years.
I looked back at myself when I was a freshman. I had so many dreams, if only cancer hadn’t cut them short.
“I miss my mom and this brings back so many memories!” I said.
“I miss mine too,”she replied.
“I never really sad goodbye,” I said sadly.
“What else is in there?” she asked.
Pictures of them during freshman year.
Notes they wrote to us and each other.
Journal entries to each other.
There where get well soon notes and cards.
“There’s a lot in here Aisha. How will we decide who will take it home?” Novia asked.
“What if we just put it back and get it next year?” I replied.
“Novia, I’m so glad I have a friend like you! I’ll really miss you when camp is over.”
The girls had an amazing time, but it eventually did come to a close.
“I’ll miss you, Novia!”
“I’ll miss you more and no matter what happens promise you’ll write me!” Novia pleaded.
“I promise! Bye!”
I stared out the window and watched my best friend and her brother disappear. I was sad,
but I knew even if I didn’t see Novia for a year, that the bond between us could never be broken.
