TD Cody and Noah
This is an epilouge I have for a story idea. If its good, let me know. If its popular, I'll write a story!
Ridgewood city, 1998
3:27 PM, Capricorn Avenue
In the city of Ridgewood, on a street known as Capricorn Avenue, two six year old boys stood out of one of their houses. One of the young boys were moving that day, making sorrow for the both of them, since those two were best friends. "Why do you have to move?" one of the boys said to the other. He had light brown hair and small blue eyes. He had a gap in between his teeth, had light skin and wore blue overalls "My mommy said its because of her job!" said the other. He had dark skin with darker brown hair. His eyes were a deep brown and he wore a red shirt and gey pants. "Cant you live at my house?" the blue eyed brunette asked. "I cant" the other said "My mommy said I have to go with everyone else!" "But you're my best friend! You cant leave!" the blue eyed brunette began to have tears form in his eyes. "I dont wanna leave too!" The two boys were about to cry until the dark haired boy's older sister came out of the house. "C'mon little guy!" She called out "We gotta go!" The boys looked at eachother. "Well...." the dark haired boy said. The two boys have been best friends since they meet in preschool. They've been through Kindergarden together and spent half of their summer together, getting in trouble and pretending to be dragon slayers. "C'mon little man" said the darker haired boys older brother. He took his hand and guided him to their parents car. The blue eyed boy watched as his best friend was out into the car, his eyes now filled with tears.
As the moving truck pulled out of the driveway, the dark haired boy looked out the window and waved a final good bye to his best friend standing on the sidewalk. "Good bye Cody!" he said through the window "Goodbye Noah!" he called back. Cody stood there and watched as the green caravan drove up the street and dissapeared from sight. Cody stood there and put his hands on his face and softly cried to himself. While he cried, someone walked up from behind him casting a shadow that caught his attention. Standing behind him was a grown woman with the same light brown hair and green eyes. She had a light skin tone and thin, it was Cody's mother Rebecca. She bent down to her son and placed a hand on his shoulder. "Cody?" she said in a sweet tone "Are you okay?" Cody wipped his eyes and tightly hugged his mother and cried into her shoulder. She lifted him up and said "Its alright, its alright. Almost everyone goes through with this." Cody asked his mother "Why did he have to leave? Why couldnt he stay?" Rebecca answered "Well, his mother was transferred at work, and they all had to go!" Cody just cried harder at what his mother said. "Look, maybe sometime in the future you two might meet up again! It happened to me and one of my friends!" the six-year-old looked up from his mother's arms and asked "Y-You think so?" she smiled and told him "Of course, sweetie." She stood up, took her sons hand, and walked him home.
7:46 PM, Nyterail street
Noah's family had just settled in to their new home in Estriver. They finished unpacking their things when Ruth, the second youngest daughter of the family walked by an open door and heard someone crying. She looked inside and saw her younger brother Noah crying into his pillow. Ruth walked in and sat beside Noah. "Hey Noah, are you okay?" she asked Noah said, while his head was still buried into his pillow "I miss Cody! I didnt wanna move!" Ruth placed her hand on his back and and said "Look, you're not the only one upset about this move either!" Noah looked up from the pillow at his sister. "You see, Im gonna be in fourth grade next September, and I had it made! But since we had to move, I dont really know anyone at this new school!" Noah wipped his eye and asked "What about me?" Ruth told her brother "Look, almost everyone has to deal with moving away and leaving a close friend behind, but you cant be upset forever. Hold on! Wait right here!" Ruth than left the room and returned with a small green book.
Noah tilted his head in confusion "What's that?" he said and he sniffled. Ruth sat on his bed and and opened it to a page in the beck. "I was given this book by my friend Jezebel when I told her we had to move." she pointed to a highlighted sentence and read "Each day is a brand new day. Just step outside and grab it the ropes." Noah asked "What does that mean?" Ruth smiled and said "It means that tomorrow is a new day filled with suprises! You cant be unhappy all the time, take a chance!" She wiped a tear from her brothers eye and said "I know how it feels to leave a friend behind, but who knows? Maybe one day in the future, you and Cody might meet up again!" "You think so?" he asked "Totally. Now come on, mom has dinner ready." Ruth and Noah walked out of the room and downstairs.
That night in Ridgewood, Cody was still awake. He looked out the window and thought of all the times he had with his best friend before he moved. He remembered what his mother said earlier: "Maybe sometime in the future, you and Noah might meet up again! he grabbed his stuffed emu Jerry and said to him "I hope she's right" he then fell asleep. In Eastriver at the time Noah had his arms around a blue sea dragon and remembered what Ruth said earlier: "Maybe one day in the future, you and Cody might meet up again!" He turned to the wall and thought "I really hope so" he shut his eyes and drifted off.
Little did the two boys know, in eleven years, they'd meet up once again in the last place either of them would think about at the moment.
Okay, so what do you think? Should I write the story or not? Is it good?
