I surprised that she hugged me back. She’s crying more. “Sorry… Dirk…” She said.
“That’s okay… That’s… Ugh... *sobs*”
Later she broke the hug. “Whoa. You have those beautiful orange eyes, Dirk! Hee hee!” And I covered my eyes. And I kept blushing. Later, I heard a beeping sound.
“Hey, [Name]! Time to go now!” A female voice said.
“Okay mommy! Few minutes!” [Name] said.
I started to cry more when [Name’s] gonna go now. [Name] hugged me again and smiled. Before she’s going to ride her car now, she said:
“Don’t cry, cool kid. I promise you, We’ll meet again! To remain our friendship, I’ll give you this friendship bracelet I brought yesterday!” She said, then she put an orange bracelet to my left ankle. Then she kissed me on my cheeks, which makes me blush. After that. She run away, going to her car. When she entered to her car now, the car is started to move.
