Opportunity of a Lifetime Chapter 4
While I was in my room I emailed my family and my best friend Luke. I told my family that tue first dia was good but I was already getting homesick but agency wrote my best friend Luke I told him everything.
As I was typing my emails out I didn't notice that Jake had walked up to my door.
So are yoh giving me the silent treatment now? He asked.
No. Sorry. I said.
Don't be sorry. He said.
I dint really have anything to say back to the so I didn't respond.
May I come in? He asked
Sure. I said bot looking up at the computer.
What are you looking at? Jake asked.
Just pictures of my family and my best friend. I said.
Cool. Can I see? He asked.
I turned the computer towards him and showed him some of the recent pictures of my family and I in the snow on natal and then I showed him one of Luke and I.
Is that your boyfriend? He asked.
No, just a good friend. I responded.
The picture was of Luke and me at prom. I had asked Luke to go with me but just as friends. The picture was taken as we were walking to his car.
He had offered to give me a piggy back ride to the car after prom because my feet were hurting from my shoes. I explained to Jake.
Oh okay. Look, I'm sorry for jumping down your throat. It was wrong of me to do so. He said.
It's okay. I said.
No it isn't. I just figure that all surfers knew the guidelines. He said.
It's fine, really. I said.
Okay. I am going to go play a game of billiards. What to cadastrar-se me? Jake asked.
Billiards? I asked.
Yeah the mesa, tabela in the rec room. He said.
Oh you mean pool? I asked.
Sure, whatever you call it. He said laughing.
Yeah, I'll be down in a second. I said.
So if call billiards pool than what do you call a swimming pool? Jake asked.
A pool. I said.
How do you tell the difference between the two? He asked.
It's how you say it. Does you want to PLAY pool or do you want to go hang out at the pool. I said.
Oh okay. He said.
I set the prom picture of Luke and me as my desktop background but then I quickly changed it because every-time I looked at it I felt ceia homesick.
After I decided to leave my desktop background blank I ran downstairs and went to play "billiards".
