I smiled out into the crowd as I walked on-stage and accepted my High-
school diploma. I couldn't believe we had all made it. I could see mum and
dad in the front row, and my father had his hand over my mother's rapidly
swelling belly. I waved to them, and went to stand beside my classmates.
Seconds later I was joined by Christian, and behind the sea of bodies in
front of us, we held hands. I knew that me getting through this year with
my sanity intact was very much due to the boy beside me.
I turned to him, and he smiled. I felt my heart flutter the same way it had
the first time I had walked into health ed and he had been there.
Christian and I clapped and cheered as Mai Li was called up, and as she
walked towards Tyler and accepted her diploma; she did a headstand and
flashed her boxers to the crowd. The crowd went wild, and Christian and I
burst out laughing.
Mai Li fell in line, to a murmur of encouragement, and she turned and
winked at me.
A half hour later, we spilled out of the auditorium and into the twilight.
Our little group gathered around and we linked arms.
"We did it guys.. We're free!" I enthused and Christian cheered, Mai Li
began a one-woman congo line and Jett just grinned.
"I can't believe that it's actually over" Mai Li exclaimed, and I laughed.
"Yea.. but that's a good thing" I replied with a smile, and she nodded.
"Yeah, but I mean I have so many good memories of us and our school, and
well everything!" she continued, and I looked her in the eyes and put my
arm around her.
"That's what Uni's for Mai Li.. We're gonna make new good times, new
memories" I told her and Christian muttered his agreement.
"To new memories!" I yelled.. and the gang laughed.
"To new memories"
A/N- My god I never thought I would be typing those two words!!
I now have two new words for you! THE SEQUEL!
Find out how Katelyn, Christian, Mai Li and Jett do in their first year of
college. It's a new game so there'll be new players, new rules. Not to
mention more laughs, tears, cringeworthy moments and MORE MAI LI!
I'll see you soon guys, in the second installment of the Experiment; aptly
'Not quite done yet'
signing off for now,
love and Christian's for all my precious reviewers
