Today is just another day of missing you. I woke up and looked at
my phone hoping to have that text i used to get every single
morning, the one that made my day ten thousand times better. "good
morning beautiful." Yeah, that one. I know I'll never get that text
from that same guy, in my whole life. Unless some miracle comes
true. hah, whats the point in wishing. Wishes never come true.
You're all probably wondering where i'm taking you with this, my
thoughts too. i'm going to tell you my story of why I'm always
going to assume guys are playing you from now on. It starts off
with summer of 2010, Lake Texana. 4-H camping trip. My friend of
eight years, Chris Beaver, and his best friend, Jeremiah Burks, are
going to come camping too. "Chris and Jeremiah are gonna come
camping, too!" My best friend, Nikki screamed over the phone. I was
on my way to the camp site, and she was already there. "What?
When?" I was just about as excited as she was. Nikki and I had
talked to Jeremiah on the phone for many years, but never had met
him in person. "There coming tonight, like, they are on there way!"
Her voice just sounded more excited with every word. "How? what? No
way!" I didn't know whether or not to believe her, she pranks me
often. "Jeremiah talked his mom into coming to Lake Texana instead
of going to the other place." "That's crazy! But hey, I'm almost
there, text me ok?" and with that we hung up. I told my mom, and
Nikki's mom. They were both in the car I was in. They seemed to
think that Chris and Jeremiah was just pranking us. I started to
believe them. They were more of a prankster than Nikki was. I
arrived at Lake Texana, and Nikki and I went walking with Her
sister and my friend, Meagan. "I bet they're lying," Meagan said.
"Call them!" I told Nikki to call them, so she did. "Hey, are ya'll
really coming?" "Yeah, we're on our way, can't you hear the RV in
the background." "Take a picture, of yourselves, and the window!"
"We cant. phones broken," they laughed. Nikki hung up, "I dont
think they are coming," She said. "Why not?" I asked. "They
wouldn't take a picture of the window," she laughed. A few minutes
later Nikki got a text that read, "We're just kidding we're not
coming." So we exchanged a few naughty words to them, and told them
not to talk to us. We were pretty upset. About an hour later, they
called. "what camp site number are ya'll?" Jeremiah asked,
nonchalantly. "eight, why?" Nikki answered. "oh no reason,
Brackenridge or recreational?" "Brackenridge. Are ya'll here?" "No,
we told ya'll we couldn't come there." "Then why are you asking so
many questions about the camp site?" "We're just wondering."
"okayy," Nikki said not believing them. About an hour later they
called back. "Okay, yes we're here, we wanted to surprise you, but
we cant find your camp site." Chris said. "We're are you?"
"Recreational." "Walk across the street." "Ok." "Did you do that?"
"Yes. but we see tons of cars, coming our way." "YOU ARE GOING
TOWARDS EDNA! TURN AROUND!Do you see the big stadium?" "No. Do you
see a green light?" "No. wait yes." We were walking the opposite
way. So We turned around and started walking this way. Mind you, we
already walked miles and miles the other way. " I think we see
you," Nikki screamed. "Do you see three morons jumping up and
down?" "Wrong green light." We turned back around the other way. We
kept asking them if they saw different landmarks. "Do Ya'll see the
re-creation sign?" Nikki asked. "We've seen a few, yes." "Then keep
coming this way." "Wait I think i see you!" "Do you see three
morons jumping up and down?" We copied them and started jumping up
and down. "YES!" and they started running our way, it sounded like
elephants running down the road. "oooh, boys." We had decided when
we saw them we weren't going to hug them because they lied and said
they weren't coming. So when they tried to hug us we just turned
around and started walking back to the campsite. "HEY! Hug us, we
walked all this way, started walking towards edna, and still came
and found you. Ya'll told us the wrong directions, its because
ya'll are girls, ya'll don't know direction." Jeremiah said. So
Chris side hugged me, and i looked at him like he was stupid.
Jeremiah tackle-hugged me. Mind you this is our first time meeting
in person. and Side hugged Nikki, and Chris Tackle-hugged Nikki.
"Excuse me, chris? I want a better hug then that," I said. So he
tackled me too! We walked, talked, and skipped all the way to
campsite number eight. "My God, Jeremiah's beautiful," My first
thoughts when I laid eyes on him. We walked up to Nikki's older
sister, Lacey. she eye bawled the three boys, the third being
Jeremiah's younger brother, Kaleb. "Who are They?" Lacey asked.
"This is Chris, Jeremiah, and Kaleb," Nikki pointed them all out.
Everybody who was at the 4-H campsites were looking at us like we
were crazy for walking up with three random boys, and there being
three girls. We went and found Nikki's and my Moms. "CHRIS!" My mom
exclaimed! She loves him. "Mrs. Tracy!" He hugged her, and hugged
Mrs. Terri, Nikki's mom, and shook my dad's hand. "I'm Jeremiah,"
Jeremiah shook all the parents' hands, and Kaleb did the same. We
wanted to go to the cemetery, but Mrs. Terri, Nikki's mom, wouldn't
let us unless an adult went with us. So We asked Lacey to go with
us. She agree'd. "I've got to pee," Lacey said. So while she went
into the bathroom, the boys decided they were going to go into the
boys bathroom and find some water. Lacey came out just as the boys
went in. We were going to act like we left them, and we went and
hid behind some trees to see how they'd react. They came out of the
bathroom, and they stood in a line, and just stared at the girls
restroom waiting for us to come out. "Guys!" we screamed from
behind the trees, well after about five minutes of course. They
came running over. We got a good laugh out of that one. Chris and I
had a few feelings for each other. We came camping knowing this
wasn't a secret. So when we got to the cemetery, I got freaked out
and so he held my hand. Nikki Kept telling me that the people
burried in the cemetery was the people who came up with lake
texana, and also there was a well, and I don't do wells after
watching "The ring." Chris got me on the wall of the cemetery, yes
the wall is to keep people out, but of course, I hang out with the
dumb people, so they all got in the cemetery, and Chris held my
hand and walked around with me on the wall. Jeremiah came up and
grabbed my feet and acted like he was gonna pull me in the
cemetery, I got scared, and I jumped off of the wall. Chris
followed me, and we started walking down the path. Later finding
out he wanted to kiss me, until Jeremiah and Nikki came running up,
followed by everybody else. So we started walking back. We walked
by the lake, "Let's get naked and jump in!" Jeremiah Exclaimed.
Nikki and I agreed. "Ya'll wont do it," Chris and Jeremiah said.
"NEVER tell Kaitlyn and Nikki they aren't gonna do something,
BECAUSE that makes them do it," Lacey said. Lacey kept telling us
to stop, and put our clothes we had removed back on. We only got
down to our undershirts. Finally she had talked us out of it, and
we put our shirts back on, and started walking again. Midnight came
around, and Jeremiah's parents called and said they needed to go
back to their campsite. My mom offered to drive them, so we all got
in the back of the truck and drove them to the campsite. On the way
there, we were talking about the experience of trying to find them,
that morning. "Yeah, We went to campsite eight. and guess what?
NOBODY WAS THERE!" Jeremiah said, Gosh. he's so cute. He has Brown
curly hair, green eyes, the most perfect smile. He actually looks
like Ashton Kutcher. He wore a tshirt and basketball shorts, all
three of them did. Chris has brown curly hair too. but his is long,
not just shaggy. and Kaleb has blonde buzz cut hair. Kaleb and
Jeremiah look nothing alike for being brothers. They got out of the
truck, and we got in the back seats, and we drove back to our side
of the camp site.
