A Fresh Wound
By RJ Cleere

Rated "PG" by the Author.

This is a true story of my first day in eighth grade...right after a "good friend" had moved to another state over the summer.

You know how when you first lose someone special to you,  how you still perk up a little when you hear their name...like you're hoping its them or something? I was like that for a long time...it never really went away.

On the first day of school, when my wounds were just a few months old--or fresh I should say--my history teacher said his name. Mr Kendall was calling the year's first attendance when out of nowhere he called, "Louis Miller."

My head jerked up so quick that I almost cracked my neck. I had scanned the room in seconds looking for his sweet face. No Louis...ouch...

I was also the first in the whole room to say that he had moved. My voice was loud and hollow. I even suprised myself. "He moved", I had said...as simple as that, but I sounded like I was dead or something...it had this weird little echo in our small classroom. Needless to say, I got some pretty nasty stares from my friends. It was just that I was so shocked.

If he had stayed...he would of been in my history class. I smiled.
