How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I don’t really know. I always make a smart character and a trouble maker one and a other on e a mix if it goes with my novel
“Beth, do you really have to leave? You’re my only friend at school,” I whined to Beth while she was putting her bags in the truck.
“I’m really sorry. I really don’t want to move. I want to stay in New York with you. Not Arkansas, not a new school.’’
“Can you come over on New Year’s so we can count down for the new year?” I asked.
“I don’t know. I really want to, but my mom might get friends and – you know what I mean, right?” Beth cut off her words and didn’t look at me as she continued to load her bags. [KR1]
“Yeah, I know what you’re trying to say. I wish you could stay. Why Arkansas? It’s so big and there are a lot of people,” I begged Beth.
She started to cry. “We have to stay in touch.”
“I promise,” I said.
Beth’s mom came out of the house and asked her if she was ready to go. My mom went to say bye to Beth’s mom.
Beth shouted, “I hate Arkansas already! There are a lot of rich people acting like they’re so cool when they’re not!”
“Beth!” shouted her mom. “Don’t say that. I got a job; we’re not moving for fun. I don’t want to move either, but I got a job.” She turned to talk to my mom, asking her how she liked being a school teacher and ignoring the rude comments that Beth keep on saying about Arkansas.
“Arkansas,” Beth mumbled to herself.
“I’m going to really miss you, Eve. Let’s stay in touch.” Beth’s mom told my mom.
“Same thing we said,” I mumbled.
“Of course we will,” my mom said.
I turned back to Beth. “Do you think Nicky will change and stop hanging out with Emily?”
“I don’t know. Maybe she just wants to be mean,” Beth said, looking at the ground and avoiding my eyes [KR2].
Beth’s mom broke into our conversation. “Beth, we have to go now. Goodbye, Eve.” Beth’s mom repeated the word bye several more times.
“Bye-bye, Beth. I’m going to miss you.” My words caught in my throat.
