The Parcel Essay

1418 words - 6 pages

Apart from the sound of crickets and the rustling of leaves, all I heard was silence. The evening sky was breaking and I haven’t moved from my position since I’ve arrived. I continued to sob in the lonely night as the wind touched my face. The moon gleamed as the brightest star flickered. The sky was filled with stars but none of them seem to care about me. I closed my eyes as tears continued to fall down, hugged my knees and whispered, “If only I could turn time back.”
I don’t remember the last time I believed in the quotation “Nobody is perfect”, because after meeting her, all I can manage to utter was perfection. I think I found it in a girl I loved since I was ten. I love the way she ...view middle of the document...

She had an olive white complexion and green eyes which could make a man lose his heart into them. I continued to watch her when suddenly she looked up and saw me watching them in the tree house window. I was about to duck when she smiled and waved. I waved back then watched in amazement as I saw her running towards the tree house.
I went to the edge of the ladder and said, "Would you like to come up?"
"May I?" she answered.
I helped her climb up and when she reached the top she then turned to me and said, "By the way, my name's Harriet Chase, what's yours?"
I answered, "My name is Theodore Cole but then you can call me Theo."
She smiled and said, "Well I like your name. Hey your tree house's neat!"
Then I replied, "Thanks! Logan and I made this. This used to be our hide out. We used to goof around, play ball and go biking together. He was my best friend and I kind of miss him you know."
She smiled and said, "I'm here now, we could do things you do with Logan and I could be your new best friend too. I never had a boy for a friend before so it could be thrilling to have one. I could learn how to play ball and I have my bicycle so we could go biking together. Now how does that sound to you?"
I smiled and said, "Well that sounds good enough."
Then she stretched out her arm presenting an open palm and said, "It's a deal then!"
So that's how it started. We became best friends and it was kind of strange at first for she was a girl and there were things which I was a little bit hesitant to indulge her in like catching frogs, swimming in the lake and climbing trees, but then she tried and did everything just to please me. There was even a time when she fell off her bike trying to catch up with me in a race we had and I was the one who bandaged her scraped knee. I could still remember the time when she hit the window of our neighbor when we were playing baseball and it was I who talked to Mr. Chambers and promised to pay for the damage, which meant having to lose a week’s allowance.
I remembered the time when I fell off a tree trying to rescue a little kitten because Harriet was close to tears when she saw the helpless baby kitten trapped in a branch. I even fought with a tough guy when they teased Harriet and made her cry and I ended up having a black eye and a bruised cheek. I remember Harriet crying as she placed an ice bag over my damaged eye and later gave it a get-well kiss. I did everything to please her and gave everything her little heart desires.
The lake was our favorite hangout. We...
