Hey. This feels so formal all of a sudden. Like I haven’t written you a million notes. I’ve had a long time to think about what I wanted to say to you. I know that I owe you a giant apology. I feel really bad. I know that I messed up. I never should have brought your mom into it. I was just so worried about you. I can’t take back what I did. 😦
When you didn’t show up for my birthday party, I got upset. I called your mom to see if maybe you needed a ride, or something stupid happened at your house, and you were grounded. (Speaking of which, I heard you’re grounded again. That really stinks!) When she told me that as far as she knew, you were at the party, I knew I really messed up.
I don’t even remember half the things I said after that. I just wanted her to be less MAD at you and more CONCERNED for you. I shouldn’t have said anything. It all just came out. Then, when you showed up a little while later, your mom had already told my mom to send you right home. It was all just a misunderstanding, and all I know is I don’t want to lose your friendship because of it.
I’ve really missed you in my life this year. High school is so different than I expected. All I can say is I hope you’ll give me a chance to be a better friend.
Write me back if you want to. (I really hope you do.)
P.S. Fair warning: I’m going to bear hug you if you forgive me. I. miss. you.
