    Farewell My Love My face was blank with no expression, as my fellow classmates cried their eyes out. Hugging and kissing went on simultaneously while others waved goodbye through the windows of the crowded, filthy bus. I felt no emotion other than the warm, silky, hands of Amy who sat beside me on our ride home. “Idiots aren’t they… huh?” Amy smirked faintly. “Totally who would cry about such a thing,” I snickered. “ Why can’t they understand that high school starts only in a few months and…

Even though it is difficult to talk to someone we may really like, a person should run away in tears out of anxiety. I can relate to Greg on many levels. My opinion of my fellow peers was very low.
