Chapter 1: Jenny was a Friend of Mine

We took a walk that night, but it wasn't the same

We had a fight on the promenade out in the rain

She said she loved me, but she had somewhere to go

She couldn't scream while I held I close

I swore I'd never let her go

Tell me what you wanna know

Oh come on, oh come on, oh come on

There ain't no motive for this crime

Jenny was a friend of mine

So come on, oh come on, oh come on

I know my rights, I've been here all day and it's time

For me to go, so let me know if it's alright

I just can't take this, I swear I told you the truth

She couldn't scream while I held I close

I swore I'd never let her go

Tell me what you wanna know

Oh come on, oh come on, oh come on

And then you whisper in my ear

I know what you're doing here

So come on, oh come on, oh come on

There ain't no motive for this crime

Jenny was a friend of mine

Oh come on, oh come on, oh come on

Have you ever felt like everything you once held dear was being taken away from you in all one year? I have.

Every one always told me this day would come; I just didn't think that it would come so soon for me. It seemed only yesterday I was lowly freshmen in a pink Abercrombie tank top showing how overly developed I was for my age, a short jean mini extenuating my none existent ass, and pink high top All Star converse padding down the halls of Green Field High like I was the sex… That was until my 'best friend' Lexie 'accidentally' spilled her pasta sauce all over me and my 'orgasmic' outfit. I shrieked shoving away from the table. I looked up to see the whole High School cafeteria laughing. I felt my eyes prick before running to the bathroom as fast as I could fighting tears all the way.

I grabbed paper towels wadding them up and rubbing it against the fabric of my new outfit as hard as I could, hot embarrassed tears falling from my eyes. I heard the door open and I gasped trying to cover up my outfit it was stupid I know, it was every where how could I cover that up? In the door walked Jenny Darsin the girl unaware to me or her for that matter would become my best friend through the next three years of high school. Three you may ask. You see Jenny Darsin was a sophomore.

"Oh my god what happened to you?" She asked eyes wide walking forward toward me.

"Y-you were in the cafeteria weren't you. Y-you must have saw." I cried pathetically.

"No, I was at the nurse I had to get my blood sugar checked." She said handing me a tissue from her Dooney and Burke purse. I then noticed the tissue wrapped around her finger. "I'm a diabetic." She told me simply.

"Oh." I said intelligently.

"Um… I have an extra set of clothes in my gym locker if you want them, I'm not sure how well the tank top will fit you but if anything are you okay with a t-shirt?" She asked cocking her head to the side quickly washing her hands in the sink.

"That's… So nice of you." I said quietly wiping my eyes with her puffs with lotion tissue.

"Yeah well I was new once to you know." She shrugged. "Eighth grade it really sucked."

"I'm not new, well I sorta am, but not really, I lived here but, I've never be-." I babbled.

"Speak." She demanded.

"I'm a freshman." I said hoping she wouldn't not want to be my friend now or give me the clothes forcing me to walk around like the attack of the killer tomatoes had returned. She laughed to my surprise and pleasure.

"I was that once also." She smiled holding out a hand to me. "I'm Jennifer you can call me what you please most of my friends call me Jenny though."

"Okay Jenny, I'm Natalie." I smiled not caring if I looked like a big fat dork.

That was the worst and best day of High School for me. The worst because of the pasta 'incident' and the fact that after that night I never spoke to Lexie again unless of course you count body language. Some of our friends sided with her saying it was only an accident and I was just being dramatic. It was the best day because I met Jenny Darsin. Jenny and I soon became inseparable. We were like that thing in Latin. JennyNatalieque, you could never find one and not the other. She introduced me to all her friends and they accepted me almost immediately. Soon, I left my friends who began hanging out with Lexie's group and talking behind my back like any high school drama.

Now my whole little world was about to go up in smoke. The que was about to be ripped from under me. Jenny was seventeen, I should know I threw her a surprise party. She was going to college… Not just any college, but a college in a different state. What would I do with out her?

I jumped quickly over the hedge separating Jenny and the old ladies next door. I sprinted up the walkway of her house as I had a hundred times. I looked up the light was on in the kitchen, I could see her and her mom talking quietly at the kitchen table. I sighed until I looked at her Jeep. The whole back was packed to the maximum capacity and riding shot gun was Dolche the puppy I gave to her when she had her fainting episode and ended up in the hospital. I bit my bottom lip and walked onto the grass with my bare feet. I wrapped on the glass window with my knuckle. Her head shot up and she looked over to see me and smiled softly. She muttered something to her mom before pushing away from the table and walking toward the front door to meet me on her roofed in stoop.

I walked around the front, padding up the stairs feeling the soft wood against my foot. She opened the door slipping on a pair of flip flops. That probably would have been more logical, but I run faster bare foot. She walked over to me her arms wrapped around her mid section. I shivered slightly. It was colder then I expected for a late summer night. I turned and began to walk down the side walk summoning to her with one hand. She leaped down from the stoop gracelessly and ran over to me flip flops clacking against the pavement in a way which just proved my thesis that flip flops were useless.

"I found a dorm, its right on campus and its right next to a cute little sushi restaurant." She told me softly taking my hand in hers swinging them as we walked my arm unresponsive.

"Sushi's good." I said back sighing.

"There's a couch with a pull out bed."

"Great." I muttered.

"It's only a year Nat." She laughed quietly.

"Yeah a year of my mom yelling at me about my cell phone bill from calling California every two hours." I said droopily. I scanned my eyes over the small park. We walked over to our play ground sitting down on the two person swing set. The artificial sand was cold under my feet but I didn't care I just lifted them of the ground and began pumping furiously.

"I'll see you on every vacation and you'll join me down here next year I mean you already got accepted and your mom can afford the tuition its perfect." She told me her chocolate brown eyes troubled. I nodded throwing my head back to watch the black night's sky fly back and forth above me. The clouds were rolling in and I tossed my head forward again letting go of the chains flying through the air landing all of five feet away.

"New record!" I announced throwing my arms up in the air beating my fists toward the sky.

"You always scare the shit out of me when you do that!" She announced dragging her heels in the sand in attempt to stop.

"What me?" I said haughtily. "I'm indestructible!" I said grabbing the monkey bar hauling my self up using only my upper body strength before swinging my leg up catching my self and pulling myself into a sitting position.

"Cool it J-I Jane." Jenny snickered climbing up the ladder slipping one leg over then the other so she was sitting perfectly across from me our feet hanging down through the bars. She flicked off her flip flops with a swing of her feet.

"I'm gonna miss this." I said softly tilting my head up ward feeling the breeze on my face, the first droplet of the approaching storm fell on my right cheek.

"Me too." She frowned. "It's raining."

"Uh huh." I nodded.

"Should we go inside?" She asked as the rain started to slick down my face into my tank top making me uncomfortably damp and slick.

"No." I muttered. "Not yet."

She leaned in wrapping her arms around my neck settling her chin in the crook of my neck. I threw both of my arms around her waist holding her so close hoping that if I just held onto her tight enough she wouldn't disappear.

But… as I've come to learn things don't go the way you hope…
