My First Friend
“Hey Jackson, do you want to go to the Aquarium?” “No,” I said. I wanted to stay right where I was. “Do you want to go somewhere else?” said Dad. “ No, I want to stay right here,” I said. The next day, my mother took me to a new day-care.
I was really nervous. When we got there, all the kids looked to see who was coming in. Then, they saw that it wasn’t someone that they had met before. Then the teacher saw that we had came in. Then she said “ Hello, Jackson, we’ve been waiting for you.”
So I came in and saw that a boy wasn’t playing with anybody, so I wanted to play with him. I said “Hi. What’s your name?” “Logan,” he said. “What’s yours?” “My name is Jackson,” I said. So we were just talking until the teacher said it was time for recess.
Then a couple days later… he started to play with me. I never thought that anyone would like me enough to be my friend because at my old school only some kids talked to me. We would always play outside together. But everyone else still didn’t like me. Every time I played with my friend, the other kids would always seem jealous. Of course the teacher liked that I had made a friend so quickly. But she also wanted me to make friends with everybody, which wasn’t going to be easy.
I was still trying to make a friend, but I was having no success. Whenever I even tried to even talk to somebody, they would just walk away. Finally, I said to myself “I give up.” “I just give up”.
So early next summer, I went back to the day-care and I met a new friend. His name was Edward. We are still friends today.
