"Ha ha, come on Candy! Hurry up!" Chip yells back at me.
"I'm trying! Slow down, I'm tired!" I say trying to catch my breath. I hear him running back for me and when i see him, he grabs my hand and says,"Come on we're almost there, just close your eyes!" He's really excited. I'm his only friend, we're best friends. We have been ever since me and my mom moved to San Francisco. She's an artist. People make fun of Chip at school, he is a little weird, but to me he's the most interesting, amazing person ever. Our names even go together, Chip and Candy. While he pulls me I'm wondering how far we are from our houses. Then we stop and he lets go of my hand. I just realized that was the first time I held a boys hand. Funny, I don't feel like I have cooties... more like butterfly's. "Okay, now opean your eyes!" I do what he says and I see a big, wide, dark blue reflected water. A lot of it. ' It kind of looks like a mirror' I think to myself. The way the trees reflect off of the water remind me of paper cut out snowflakes. "Wow!" I exclaimed with a blushing face. I look around us some more, I cant see my house from here, in fact, I cant see any houses. I feel strange now, uncertain. I've never been here before and we're all alone. ' Will we get in trouble for being here?' I wonder as i turn 2 Chip. "Hey um, are we allow--"
"This could be our very own secret place," he cuts me off, "no one else would know about it. Promise not to tell ANYONE??" he said looking straight into my eyes. He's my best friend. I dont want to dissapoint him or hurt his feelings. So I smile and say "Promis!" I was seven years old back then. And this is now...
