Breathe Me || Completed
❝On our last day of third grade, Mrs. Vesper gave us a bit of a goodbye speech. "Good luck in your lives," I remember her saying. "Stay out of trouble. You all have such potential." Then finally, she said, "Now, why don't we all say bye-bye to Twig?"
I was actually very emotional -- I said, "Bye bye, Twig. I'll miss you." The other kids said, "Bye," and "We love you", and "Good frog". But Samantha thrust her hand into the tank and shouted, "Be free, Twig! Go! Go! Hop Away! Long Live Twig!" Then she chucked him straight out the window and onto the metal playground.
Mrs. Vesper sat at her desk open mouthed while we cheered and cried in joy, waving goodbye to our liberated friend. I remember sobbing all the way home with Samantha, our arms wrapped around each other. My savior. My hero. Set me free, Samantha, throw me out the window and let me go. ❞
Once upon a time, Samantha and Sally were best friends. Samantha was always causing trouble and Sally hung by her side, a faithful witness -- until the day that her family moved from Brooklyn to a small town in Maine, forcing her to leave her friend behind. Now, Samantha has gotten into some new trouble and her parents have nowhere left to send her away. Nowhere except for Stone Harbor, Maine . . .
