Destinee’s mother pulled up and we stared at each other, we knew the police would follow quickly. What if they knew we were lying? We didn’t mean for it to go that far, but at that point we were locked in. Destinee pulled me aside with one final thing to say. “Lizzy, I don’t care how hard she presses you. If she finds out that we did this we are dead. You need to die with this lie. You can do it. Stay strong and whatever you do, don’t break.” I gave her a paralyzed look and she turned me around to drag me with her down the driveway. I couldn’t believe what we were about to do. Although knowing Destinee, I shouldn’t have been that surprised… Destinee Debates has never been in a situation “too deep.” She is one of those people that will do anything to keep herself and her friends happy, and is the most loyal friend a person could have. When we were kids I never had any money. Destinee’s solution? Steal a few hundred dollars from her mom’s purse and pay for whatever we wanted to do. Was she ethical?
Not really. But I knew she meant well. Extreme scenarios didn’t phase her in the least. I remember another occasion, she was mad at a boy at school. She caused a scene in the hallway during a passing period and started a fight with him. Everyone in the building stopped and stared at what she was doing. But Destinee didn’t stop until she was expelled from our district. I guess if you’re going to pick a fight with someone, you might as well go all out. Thank god she was still a minor…
