You Can Take or Leave Me

Back to the topic of my best friend. Best friends. That's what this is all about - that's my life now, anyhow. My former best friend is in my math class. We sit together at lunch on A days. We've slowly started talking more, which is a pretty big deal for us. We've actually made plans to hang out - the Hunger Games midnight premier. Last Friday we had a snow day. She texted me something sweet, something that hinted that our old camaraderie had returned. Or was starting to. Things are starting to look like they had been.

But I'm still so mad. So, so mad.

My group of best friends... It feels like they're phasing me out. With the former best friend, things slowly started to disintegrate, until one day, there was nothing left. We hadn't spoken in weeks and she'd barely spared me a glance in the hallways. She didn't tell me that she had gotten a new piercing - a big deal for her, considering it's not really her "thing" - she swore she had told me, but she hadn't. She told me she'd text me and we'd make plans - and when we did, the plans fell through and I'd see that she had hung out with my replacement instead.

It's happening again. My group of best friends.. they don't share anything with me anymore. Granted, I never get to see them. We have completely different schedules. I see them for maybe five minutes a day, if at all. One of them got an iPhone two weeks ago. The three of them are going to The Black Key's concert - I love the Black Key's, and they know that. I'm free the day of the concert. They all text all the time, but they hardly ever text me anymore. I'm so out of the loop, and I don't know what to do. This can't happen again, not with them.
