I walked home from the village as the summer sun beat down and wiped a large bead of sweat off my forehead. Before crossing the bridge, I spotted Celia farther down the river picking flowers. We never spent our days off together, but it was time for a change.

“So what are you doing over here?” Her chestnut eyes shimmered with joy.
“Actually, I, uh, wanted to see you,” I could feel my face grow warm with my embarrassing proclamation.

“Aren't you going to ask why,” she looked up at me with her strange violet eyes.
I sighed, “No.”
She mimicked me and then frowned, dumping more strawberries in the bucket. “When are you going to lighten up? Or are you always like this? You're always such a grump.”
I rolled my eyes.
"I don't want to be your enemy, you know," she frowned, "We don't have to like each other, but we can be civil."
"It doesn't matter. And I am civil."
“You know what, though?" She began, pulling several weeds away from the strawberry plants, "I like how you say the truth, no matter how harsh. Or rude. Well, to almost everyone. Some

She thought for hours and hours, and just when the sun fell, she knew.
It was 16 o' clock and she ran towards the peachy-colored hair man's house. Nima didn't have time to knock, so she opened it. "Chase, go with me." Chase arose from his chair. "Say.. What?" Nima panted, Please go with me to the festival tonight."
Chase smiled happily, "Really? You choose.. me? I don't mean that I didn't want you to choose me. But.. me?" Nima nodded and laughed, "Yes, really." she grinned. They stood there in their happy moment.Chase stumbled towards his room. I should get ressed. I-I mean.. dressed. I mean dressed." he laughed nervously. Nima giggled, "Yeah, I should get going." They waved goodbye.
When Nima entered her house, she panicked, "Oh man, what am I going to wear?" She thought for a second. "Candice!!" she ran towards her phone, dialed the Tailor's, and waited impatiently. "Tailor Shop, Candice speaking." her voice was so low it almost seemed as if she were whispering.

She watched her as she ran towards town. Nima sighed, wiping away the small tears. She didn't know how to face her anymore. Nima walked back to Chase's house and saw Chase next to the failed dish. He scowled, "This tastes.... Awful." Nima kneeled next to him, "Chase, Maya-" Chase sighed, "I don't care about Maya. Let her run and cry. I don't care." Nima stared at him. "Why not teach her to cook?" He stared at the failed dish. "Because she can't."
