Kimberly's POV
As the dusty, dirty gravel crunches under the wheels of the car, and radio buzzing lowly with a song, Heidi turns to me.
"Wendy and Dave want to know if you want to come to dinner at our place tonight." She tells me. Wendy and Dave were Heidi's parents, otherwise known as Mr. and Mrs. Lane.
My own parents had stayed in Chicago for the rest of the summer, so a nice home cooked meal, made by someone other then me, would defiantly beat whatever instant food if inevitably end up eating tonight.
"Sounds great." I tell her, turning to face her, with a smile. Jarring the wheel of the car to the right to make a turn into her street.
She lives in a big house in the country side of New Jersey, about 15 minutes out of where I lived if you took the right streets. Her parents were cool as heck, I'd told them most of the things I hadn't told my parents. They'd fed me countless meals in high school, and always put a roof over my head when I needed it.

Being best friends with Heidi taught me to always pack an overnight bag, I never knew what the night had in store with her. I never minded though, party was always on my mind.
"Wendy! David! Kimberly is here!" I'd wondered sometimes why Heidi referred to her parents on a first name basses. However, I figured it was for my own

    We all willingly choose to wearing matching outfits now, go out to bars together and spend our free time with each other. When I go home for breaks, I’m always more excited to see my cousins and the rest of my family than I am my friends at home. Family is everything to me. I could lose everything tomorrow and as long as I still had all of my family members than I know I would be okay. My friends always laugh because I always say that I could never marry someone who wasn’t close with their family simply because of how close I am with mine.…

    The entire month we were up there, her and I did everything together, we ate beef-a-roni from the can, even though it tastes slightly greasy without heating it up, while talking about the latest celebrity gossip, we blared the music while the adults were out working, and we stayed up until 2-3 in the morning just talking about anything and everything. It was amazing having an older “sister” who had so much in common with me. After we got home, I spent nearly 2 weeks straight at her and her mom’s house, and even now I go over to her house almost every weekend, and we talk all day everyday through…

    School was 700 miles away and I had a week ahead of me to do as I pleased while staying in a beach house for free. Before I could get to any of this, however, I had to get through the eight hour ride in the car with Livi, who was little more to me than a classmate at the time, her mother, and her grandmother. “They’ve never let me take a friend on our trips before.” It was difficult to hide my surprise. Although Livi is practically family now, we had never spent time together alone outside of school before I was invited on this vacation with her family. Her…

    During lunch, my mom texted me informing me that we had dinner reservations that night at Benihana’s. “What a wonderful treat”, I thought, as I looked at the cold pasta and soggy salad on my tray.

    The drivers in Italy are nuts, the bus driver parked the bus and we started on our first little walking tour just in the heart of Rome. We saw our first big monument the Pantheon in Piazza Novaro. Then we were off on our own for a while and had to be back by five o’clock to go back to the hotel and eat. While I wandered I had four friends I traveled with because you’re not supposed to be alone when you’re a young American. Jade, Sara, Blaike, Tommy and I decided we were going to sit on a stoop and eat our first cup of gelato and just enjoy the view because we were so exhausted from traveling for about twenty-four hours straight.…
