"Different? I'm not different."
"Good! Just don't tell my aunt or else she might start yelling at me."
"Come on Angel! Let's go like we promised each other! Just pack your bags and we can head off to Sunset Valley together!"
"I'm sorry Candy. I can't." It really wasn't because I can't, it's because I couldn't. I wasn't as brave or spontaneous as her; I was scared. I was scared to leave the comforts of my home and explore the world, something I would have done during my teenage years.
"This is it." I answered sadly, knowing that this might be the last time we would ever see each other.
"You be safe Candy and follow your heart."
"I will, I will!"
We held each other for a long until the taxi started honking at her to hurry. With one last round of goodbye's, I watched my cousin, my best friend, leave for her new life.
