|Aaron stoking our last bon fire|
"It's hard to say goodbye," Kristel said, "but time is saying you need to go." And we all knew she was right.
After we finished our bon fire time, we decided to wander back to the pavilion to eat snacks and just hang out with one another. I stood to go after many had already left, and as I turned my back to the beach I saw Carina waiting for me. We walked and talked and were a little sad together. As we neared the church again, she asked me what we were going to do the rest of the night. I shrugged. "Just talk and eat. Maybe play some games. You're coming over right?"
"Apay?" I looked at her with a smirk and asked why.
"We shouldn't make any more happy memories, Katelyn. That way we'll have less to look back on and be sad about."
I laughed and said, "So should we just get into a fight so we don't talk the rest of the time?"
"Yes!" She said with a smile.
She came, of course, and we all enjoyed the evening together. But I understood her words and her concern. The more attached you get to a place or person, the harder it is to part.
