Aaliyah and her brother, DeShawn, go to the same school, and they are a bit nervous for what they should expect with the students at the school. DeShawn makes friends easily, which to Aaliyah makes sense cause they could talk a bout whatever and from there just bond. Unlike DeShawn, it takes time to Aaliyah make friends, which makes her miss her old friends even more. Whenever DeShawn and his friends are around Aaliyah tries to be there every second, and DeShawn gets a bit suspicious. Why is Aaliyah always around?
