I Make a Friend
(I Wish I Hadn't Found Someone Here That I Like)

Mom's talking to Shujji about the trip here and about my little "accident" of falling off of the plane. I'm leaning up against a wall on the other side of the room, trying not to make eye contact with anyone, and waiting for my mom to forget that I'm in the room so I can LEAVE! I love my mom, but you'd think she would know that I don't want people knowing that I'm that big of a klutz.
Yoshimori keeps giving me weird looks, like he feels sorry for me. I yawn, for two reasons. First, different time zones, gotta love em’. Second, I’m trying to get my mom to lecture me instead of droning on and on about how I was the only one that had much reaction to whatever jarred the plane. She ignores me, and continues the conversation. I mumble something about going to finish unpacking-which she doesn’t know I already did- and go back to my room. I go to YouTube and look for a lyric video of Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfeild. I look around for an unopened box, just to keep it from seeming like I was lying.
I actually manage to find a small one, it’s labeled “Bethany’s Stories”. I look at it confused. What did it mean my stories? Did it mean my books? No, I already unpacked those.
Only one way to find out. I open the box. Inside are a few notebooks, most of them full or close to it, and a whole one-inch binders worth of loose-leaf paper, most of it covered in writing.
I pull out one of the notebooks and open the front cover. The first page is like a title page I guess. It says “Character Profiles” characters is written in emerald green, and Profiles is written in sapphire blue. I turn the page.
It says “Lissette” across the top. I read the profile. She seems like a very interesting character. In fact, she’s the exact opposite of me. Well, except the bad temper part, I am not the most easy going person ever, I admit it. Unwritten has finished playing. I look for Over You by Chris Daughtry. I play it, and go back to reading. I read two more profiles, one called “Azza” another called “Makao” and listen to five more songs, before I notice someone watching me from the doorway. It’s Yoshimori.
“How long have you been standing there?” I ask him.
“Not long.” he answers. I stare him down for a moment, then go put the notebook away, along with the others, On a small bookshelf on the other side of the room.
“Drawings?” he asks, noticing how many of them there are. There’s at least five of them, and I’m pretty sure that they aren’t all character profiles.
“I wish. I can’t even draw a straight line without messing it up. They’re stories.”
He snickered at the straight line comment, but looked a little curious about the stories.
“You write?”
“I think so…I really can’t remember.”
“What do you mean you can’t remember? You don’t remember your own stories?” he asked, looking confused.
“You weren’t paying attention to what my mom was saying either were you?”
“I heard most of it, she got to the part about you finally waking up and I tuned out.” he admits. I shrug.
“I wasn’t really paying attention at all. I didn’t like experiencing it, I don’t want to hear about it either.” I say. "The doctor told me that I got a little bit of a concussion that caused some memory loss and that it would clear up after a few weeks."
"Well that explains it." he says. He's looking a little embarrassed for not having paid attention or knowing why I couldn't remember. I smile. He's actually become even cuter. No guy I've ever met would've admitted that they weren't paying attention and be embarrassed about it. They all would've just stood there and pretended to know what was going on.
I'm really starting to like this place, and the people here.
