I am sitting in class and a new student went in and he later was alone he was sitting by himself in lunch he was tall with glasses looked lost and that reminded me of Edgar.
School was going to start I had moved schools. And I didn’t know anybody I was scared and nervous so the school’s name was Academy Park. It looked like a good school. so I was at line to go to class the teachers name was Ms. Ball she was young. I was in 4th grade she asked me what my name was and I said Daniel Arroyo. Because that’s how my name was registered in Hunter Elementary School. and the teacher said you’re not in my role and I got really shy it was in front of the whole class.
Then this new student went in class and sat by me and we started talking his name was Cesar he told me he didn’t know anybody and I told him I was new too. Then the bell rang it was recess. I didn’t know who to play with so then I saw people running to the soccer field. and I was walking. Around the park when they tell me to play soccer with them and it was Edgar that told me to play with him all of sudden I scored and I ran to Edgar. I was happy because we tied we were losing 1-0. It was Mexicans vs Tongans. Then recess ended and me and Edgar where talking to line and he told me I played good and seens then me and Edgar became friends. He should me his friends and they said hi and we all started talking it was my best year.
Then I went over Edgar’s house and my dad went to go get me and Edgar’s uncle opened the door and my dad knew him they were friends. They worked together and I and Edgar didn’t know it was good knowing they knew each other. Me and Edgar hangout the whole year and the whole summer me him and his cousin Rigo. Were like brothers and we still are Edgar was my first friend at Academy Park and he is like family for me. We still hangout almost every weekend he is my best friend I trust him a lot.
