A Bedroom To Remember! Essay

931 words - 4 pages

During the summer of 2004, my best friend, Amanda was forced to leave Houston and move to Englewood, Colorado. Amanda became extremely upset because she did not want to leave her friends. Amanda and I were very close friends from seventh grade through ninth grade. We were just like twin sisters, if you saw one of us, the other one was right behind. At first, the transition was terrible for both of us. We appeared to be sister-less in two different states. The family had moved several times before I visited.During the hot, humid summer of 2005, I pleaded with my mother to let me go to Englewood, Colorado and visited with Amanda. My mother agreed to my going to Colorado. I hurried and packed my luggage. The next day I left on a Greyhound Bus heading for Denver; it was a twenty-two hour long drive. I did not care I just wanted to visit Amanda. I met plenty people on the bus in the process of seeing my best friend. When I got to Denver I called her and she said, “Get off at the stop in Englewood.” I did as she said since I had never been there before.

He was about five feet and six inches with dark brown skin and a medium size black afro. Then there was a house in the back that she and her oldest brother stayed in. Her room was so warm and peaceful. The color scheme, the bed and even the bathroom made me feel safe and at home. The window had a screen with a hole in it that one of her cats, G-baby, keep coming through. She had hardwood floors with a plush purple shag rug and a soft bed with navy blue sheets and a satin purple bedspread. The bedspread was so slippery that I could not sleep in the bed without falling onto the floor. I loved the bathtub because it was the traditional tub with legs. She had a little basket on the side and a long and flexible showerhead; I could relax in that tub forever if I would not wrinkle like a prune. She also had the On Demand Cable so that we could watch whatever we desired. Her oldest...
