On September 2, 2011 my Mom and Dad surprised me with a trip to Magic Mountain for my birthday. They took it one step further by allowing me to bring one friend all expenses paid! I chose my friend Dalon and we were very excited to go. I just didn’t know that soon after our trip I would feel so sad and hurt.
Dalon stayed the night at my house the night before. We played a lot of video games; played football in the street and we had a little cake my Mom got for me. We woke up very early the next morning to go to Magic Mountain. My parents took us to breakfast and off we went to Magic Mountain.
We didn’t know that Dalon had never been on a roller coaster until we got there. He was a little nervous but after a few rides he was ok and we went on so many! We stayed until the park closed. We didn’t want to leave but at least we had many things that my parents bought us, including pictures of us together, to help us remember this day.
The next morning we had a football game. We where both so tired but it was worth it. After the game Dalons’ dad said he had to go home. I was sad he had to go. We text other for a few days after but he never talk to me again after that.
I learned to make sure a friend is a real friend. Make sure that if you pay for someone that you know them for a long time. Lastly, I learned not to trust your instincts all the time.
