On the way back home I got a text from Briana.

breezy bby 😍👯💘: before yall go home, go by the house. there's a note on the counter that'll explain everything.

"Blake, before you drop me off, can you go by Briana's house?" I asked locking my phone.

"Yeah sure," he said.

We got to the house and I used the spare key to get in. We walked into the kitchen and saw a note sitting on the counter. It said:

I have a "gift" for all of you. It's nothing special, but I just wanted to do something for yall. Monique, check the window seat upstairs. DJ, look on the table in the living room. Blake, look on the nightstand in my room. Like I said, it's nothing special, but I hope you enjoy it. I'm gonna miss yall like crazy.
-Briana ❤️

I walked upstairs and sat on the window seat in the hall. In front of me was a picture of me and Briana from when we were five and a picture from when she first got to California. They were in a picture frame that said "sisters," but she decorated it to make it cute. This doesn't surprise me because under her hard exterior, she's a very creative & sentimental person. Next to the picture there was a note:

Nique Nique,
You know you have always been my best friend. I honestly don't know what I'd do without you, which is why I was hella salty when you left SC. You are the only person I could tell any and everything to. At this point I don't even consider you a friend, you're my sister. You keep me sane without sucking the fun out of everything. I love you and just know I won't be gone too long.
-Breezy ❤️

As soon as I finished reading the note, my eyes welled up with tears and they fell. I missed her already. I went in the bathroom, wiped my face, grabbed the picture & note and went back downstairs.


I sat on the couch and looked on the table. There was a picture of me and Briana from the day we went paint balling in a Batman & Robin frame. I picked up the note next to the picture.

I am so glad I got the chance to meet you! You're like the protective older brother I never had. Even though we've only known each other for like two months, you've easily become one of my best friends. Don't ever forget me. I'll be back soon. Love you kid!
-Bri ❤️
P.S. Protect Monique while I'm gone because I don't trust Troy and I know she's not gonna say anything to him.

Her note made me smile. She was like a little sister to me now. It hasn't even been an hour, and I miss her.


I walked in Briana's room and sat on the bed. I looked on her nightstand and saw a picture of her kissing my cheek in a red & blue frame with hearts all around it. The note next to the picture said:

I never would have thought you and I would cross paths and become as close as we did. You have become one of my favorite people and just know you are very important to me. However, I don't want you to stop living your life because I told you how I felt about you. Don't let me be the reason you're miserable; I want you to be happy. But I want you to know that just because I'm gone doesn't mean my feelings for you have changed. I can't wait until I'm back in LA with you and everybody else. Xoxo.
-Briana ❤️❤️

I got the picture & note and slowly walked out of the room. When I walked into the living room, I saw DJ and Monique sitting on the couch with his arm around her. Damn. I knew today would be sad, but I didn't know it'd be like this.
