After Camp~ Premerie

Aisha’s POV

*this is blurry for effect*

“Hello Aisha. We are so excited for you to come to live with us,” a woman said.

My newest foster family so far seemed really nice, but I mean I’d only been around them for about 5 minuets, but I wasn’t excited that they had another foster kid. I don’t have a lot of experience with “siblings”

My new foster-brother, Ryan, jolted me from my thoughts.

“Aisha, it’s almost time to go! You don’t want to be late on your first day,” he yelled from the hall.

I glanced around my new room, my “mom” Kaitlin had bought me some many things. I’d never had so many things in my life. New clothes, backpack, lunch box, room, shoes, everything! I couldn’t wait to see Novia. That’s what I didn’t mention earlier, my best friend lives in this same town, but she doesn’t know that!

When I found out I was moving to the same town as her I decided it would be a good idea to surprise her. I quickly packed my backpack.

But before I left, I took out my old backpack and dug around until I found the picture of my mom. She died a few years ago and ever since I’ve carried her picture around. 

Novia’s POV

Ugh! Today was the first day of school. Last year at the start of the school year I had a lot of friends. Even after my mom died they were still my friends, but things started to change. After I got back from camp, I found myself even more distant from them as well as my dad. Once mom died I think he tried to bury himself in work to get rid of the grief. I was surviving but I wasn’t exactly excited to start 8th grade friendless. My one and only BFF lives 100s of miles away.

“Hey, we have to go,” my brother said.

“Where is dad?” I asked.

“He had to go to work early and couldn’t make his special first day of school breakfast. He wanted me to tell you he bought Pop Tarts instead.”

My stomach churned, first it was no back to school shopping with mom, then there was the weird open house, and now no special breakfast.

I trudged quietly to school beside Jake.

Once in the building, I began to head toward Room 202. On my way I thought I saw Aisha, my BFF, but decided I must be hallucinating.

Inside Home Room, I saw the girl again she smiled at me and walked over. My mouth dropped open in surprise and my managed to sputter, “AISHA?!”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“Hey, surprise! I sorta didn’t tell you I was moving here.”

“Seriously? Your so mean,” but I threw myself into her arms anyway. I’m sure we probably looked crazy but I didn’t care. I was grinning when we went to sit down and the rest of the day was a blur.

Next thing I knew we were walking home.

“So what did you think my, I mean, our school?” I asked.

“I can’t believe its kindergarten – 12th grade.” She replied.

“Yes it is very—-”

Ryan slid by me on a skateboard.

“Oops sorry!” he called.

“Ryan! Watch where your going.” Aisha chimed.

“You know him?”

“Yup. He is my new brother, what about you?” She asked.

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“He is Jake’s best friend!” I said.

“What a small world!” We laughed and headed into my house.

“Dad? DAD? Where is he?” I muttered.

“Look! A note,” said Aisha,”I had to stop by to pick up some stuff. I’ll be gone overnight on business. There is pizza in the freezer. Love, Dad.”

I sighed,”Okay, well I guess you’ll have to meet him another time.”

“So you will be home alone?” she asked.

“I guess so,” I replied, “It happens all the time, anyway let’s go to my room.”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

In my room Aisha asked, “Novia, are you okay? We’ve been having a great time and all but I can see you’re a little distracted.”

I laughed, “I can’t hide anything from you. I’ve been thinking….”

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

“That’s a great idea!” Aisha said once I finished explaining my plan. Maybe, if this works, my life could return to the way it was. But only if two things happen. IF Jake and Ryan will help us and IF we followed the plan exactly.

“We have a lot of work to do.” I said.

HAPPY NEW YEAR! What do you think of the series so far? Look for part 2 soon. Just so you know, I won’t be posting as much as I did in December. My goal is to post twice a week. Every weekend there will be another part of After Camp and during the week there will be another post. See you soon:)

Merry Christmas, From Americangirlguide
