I held my Mommy's hand as we traveled through the hallway to my classroom. We stopped just outside when she bent down and hugged me. I cried.

"It's okay, Skylar. Don't cry honey" she said while rubbing my back. I cried harder. This will be the sixth time we moved in the last two months. Daddy promised me that this would be the last move for awhile but, he also told me that a couple of weeks ago before we moved here. "Honey, this is the last move for a long time. I promise" she said and I nodded my little head. She gently nudged me into the room and left me alone. The teacher pointed me to my seat and began her class.

Soon the bell rang and all the kids piled out of the classroom. I sat at the end of the girls table eating my snack. I tried to talk to them but every time I spoke up, they would shoot me down and look at me in disgust. When I tried speaking to them again, a little blonde girl spoke up.

"Just, stop trying to talk to us. We don't want to hang out with a crybaby like you!" She said and the others laughed. The bell rang and I ran to the playground.

I curled under the jungle gym and cried my eyes out. I knew that this would happen. This always happens.

Suddenly a shadow hovered over me. I looked up saw a boy about my age staring at me with a unknown expression. He bent down and wiped away my tears with the pad of his thumbs. I felt sparks and immediately stopped crying. I looked into his bright Emerald eyes. They stared back at me in awe.

"Why are you crying?" He asked and I looked down at my pink Nike's

"Because I know that'll never make friends here" I said quietly. He was quiet for a minute before finally speaking up.

"I'll be your friend" he said quietly while looking into my eyes. I smiled a goofy grin.

"Really!?" I asked and he nodded his head.

"You'll be mine forever" he said while cupping my cheeks into his tiny hands.
