Vivian and Katie were best friends. They always helped each other in their time of need. They never got into a serious argument until a late Tuesday night. Katie was minding her business when she received a phone call. It was her best friend Vivian. She needed some help with her math homework. After they finished the math homework, Vivian asked Katie what her feelings were towards a guy named Marcus. Marcus was a friend to both Vivian and Katie, but Katie knew him three years longer than Vivian did. Katie never thought about her feelings towards Marcus. After remembering all of the fun and good times she had with Marcus over the years, she came to the conclusion that she liked him.
Unexpectedly, Vivian said Katie couldnít like him because she (Vivian) liked him. Katie was startled by Vivianís statement. Then, Vivian told Katie that she was going to hook up with him anyway since theyíve been playing around over the past few days. Her friend, Mitchell, told her that Marcus said he would hook up with her if she asked. Then, Katie asked Vivian why she would ask for her feelings towards Marcus when she (Vivian) was going to hook up with him the next day. Vivian answered by saying she never viewed Katie as someone who can fall in love with someone and wanted to have some fun with her. Katie was surprised at Vivianís answer, and hung up the phone. She couldnít believe her best friend would do that to her.
The next day at school, Katie didnít feel like talking to anybody. Throughout the day, she witnessed the hugging and kissing of Marcus and Vivian directly in front of her. Katie knows that Vivian is doing all of that in front of her on purpose just to make her mad. Katie learned that Vivian wasnít a good friend. Vivian was just using Katie to increase her chances at getting with Marcus. Katie knows now that she has to choose her friends wisely.
