“We need to hang out! It’s been so long!” 

“But I don’t have a lot of time on break.” 

“Reunited after 7 month hiatus.”

What’s the point if it’s all a facade? 

Why keep people that aren’t truly there? 

There is no point. 

So goodbye to those that hide behind masks. 

I’m tired of it. 

Thank you to those that actually care. 

You truly are friends.

A Whirlwind of a Time

Warning: May or may not be based on true events.

We went upstairs. My best friend has been having trouble with a couple of boys. She doesn’t know which one she is in love with. We’ve been working with each other’s energy for a while now. I know something is wrong, but until I see, I can’t tell.My upstairs is slightly in the state of disarray, but she never notices anyway. We sit on the couch and I turn something on the tv absent-mindedly. “So, what’s bugging you?”

“I don’t know which one I love, and I don’t know which one I want to leave.”

“Well just clear your mind, and let’s try to figure out what’s going on in the inside.” I tell her. I’ve never tried to go in this far before. I was going to read her inner self and try to figure out how to fix this. I had only read people’s kind of history and why they acted the way they are before. I would love or hate someone just by meeting them, but I’ve never fully looked inside at their self, their soul. I grabbed her hand and we could both feel the tingle. The slight increase in energy around our hands. It felt like the air became warmer around certain spots, and we could move it. It’s so interesting.

I thought of tiny tendrils of my energy go from my hand into, and around, hers. Our energies were syncing, I could tell she was trying to clear her mind. Let all the emotions go and just think of herself. Who she was. I’m not one for visualizing, something began to come into focus. Something else I should mention is the fact that I align with Earth and she goes with Air primarily, fire being my second and water hers. Somehow in my mind, I am upside down. A deep brown rock is under my feet and I’m somehow standing upside down. How I know this is my friend is below me, standing upright as well. At this point I also notice that we were in the eye of a tornado. There was no wind, but you could see the currents swirling around us.

She reached up with what was supposed to be her hand. Instead as it came towards me, the skin began to break in between the middle and ring finger. Blood seeped and oozed out of the wound and she continued to try to reach for me. The hand snapped and twitched apart as it rose to me. Splitting right down the middle through her forearm. Before I could grab on, she pushed me out with a gust of wind. We never did it again.

“You didn’t even let me try to help. I think I could have mended you.”

“I know, I just couldn’t stand it anymore. It was so weird.”

“You’re telling me. You didn’t have a bloody, split in half hand coming at you.”

“Maybe not, but it was my hand after all.”

“True. Did this help at all?”

“I think I know who I’m going to choose.”

“Good. Hopefully now you can heal.”

“Yeah, same. Thank you.”

“Anytime. Oh, I might have somehow, kind of, bound our souls together when I was in there. so yeah, if you feel something weird, I’m probably in pain somewhere.”

“Yeah, or me too.”

“Oh god, I better not get your cravings.”

“Hey, at least you won’t have the pains.”

“True. If you ever need me, I’m always here. Remember that.”

“I know.” We continued to hold hands and watched whatever show was on. I actually did get her food cravings in that time of the month…



This isn’t going to be a story, but a reflection from hanging out with my mom’s friends from high school. I have noticed that whether it’s my friends, my uncle’s neighbors, or my mom’s friends, whenever a group of old friends get together, everything reverts to being together. The hum-drum of every day life and outside of hanging out is just gone. Kind of like a mini vacation. I just think it’s interesting how we, in a group, just completely change from how we are every other day. I’m having a party of my own next week and I can’t wait to see what happens there. Tonight was really fascinating and fun.
