"I can't believe the first dress you tried on was the one you got for your graduation!" Ramai exclaimed as they walked out to the car.
"Hey, I'm not picky and the dress was the one you picked, so why wouldn't it be easy" Cadence responded with a shrug.
"True" Ramai teased with a smile, "I'm surprised you didn't have your cousin meet us to shop for it though."
"She was busy teaching today, but she'll be at the party tonight, and I sent her a picture. She liked it and told me to get it" she replied with a smile.
"Sally is a smart woman" Ramai stated with a smile at her best friend.
"Except with math" Cadence replied with a laugh.
True friends are the ones who have nice things to say about you behind your back.
"Well let's get back to the house so you can finish getting ready. You've got two hours until you have to be at ASU West and you've got hair and makeup to do" Ramai stated with a commanding tone.
"Okay. Okay. God, I wish I hadn't made that deal with Caleb not to cut my hair. It's going to take forever to do!" Cadence exclaimed as they sped off towards her home.
Two hours later
"I have no clue how we managed to do this in that amount of time!" Cadence exclaimed as her and Ramai pulled into a parking spot and the rest of her family did the same.
Cadence tossed the keys to Ramai as she ran as quickly as she could in her heels to meet up with the rest of her class.
"You know even with the fact that she's wearing six inch heels Cadence runs pretty damn fast" Taddeo, Cadence's older brother stated as Ramai and Cadence's family began to walk up the path.
"Trust me. You should see her when she's wearing regular shoes or even heels that keep her feet in them" Jaeger, Cadence's younger brother stated.
Never abandon a friend in need.
"The girl is capable of a lot. I'm honestly surprised she's not the valedictorian" Mabel Babette, their mom, stated with a look of pride on her face.
30 minutes later
As Cadence's group sat quietly awaiting the ceremony to begin realization hit Ramai, "I though you weren't going to be able to come, Taddeo!" Ramai exclaimed as she turned to Cadence's older brother.
"Why do you think Grandma isn't here?" Taddeo replied, "It wasn't because she only wanted to go to the party. She knew I was coming and thought it would be a great idea for me to surprise Cadence here and not there."
"Five bucks says she cries" Paine Babette, their dad, stated.
"Deal!" Exclaimed Jaeger as he shook Paine's hand.
The walking music started and all 95 seniors began their last steps as high school students. Their principal stepped forward and introduced Daimon, the Class President, and Valeri, the valedictorian.
Making a million friends is not a miracle. The miracle is to make a friend who will stand by you when millions are against you.
Once they finished their separate speeches their old principal stepped forward and began calling off the students. As each one walked across the stage to retrieve their diploma and shake the hands of the people who had guided them for four years they wore looks of pride and sadness upon their faces.
