A Friendly Reunion

On Saturday, March 23, my friends Michala and Nichola came to visit from Canada. About 5 years ago, they moved to Canada. Since then, my friends Nicholas, Max, Jack, Samantha, and I never saw them again. The seven of us used to live in the same neighborhood and grew up together. That Saturday, they came to visit and we went to a party for them! We played with Nerf guns and played tag.

When we played with Nerf guns, we split into two teams. Nicholas, Max, Nichola, Jack, Michael, and I vs. the other team, Victor, David, Liam, Riley, Samantha, and Margo. During the game, if we got blasted by a bullet, we would have to lay on the floor and pretend to be dead for ten seconds. Then we would rise and put our hands up so we could return to our base to re-spawn. Nicholas had a Nerf assault rifle, Max, Jack and I had Nerf pistols and Nichola had the "LIVE" ball. The "LIVE" ball is a ball that can make you invulnerable to anything. It would also one-hit-kill some one if you chucked the ball at them. If you touch a teammate with the "LIVE" ball when they are on the ground,  they re-spawn without traveling back to their base. Michael was our spy. Even though he had no weapons, he sneaked into the enemy base and took all their weapons. That was the turning point in the game. They were defenseless and our team beat them. 

We also played two versions of tag. The first version of tag we played was hide-and-go-seek tag. If you were tagged, you would be out for the round. The first time around, the tagger thought everyone was tagged but then I shouted at him, "HEY! I am up here!" He looked up and saw me on the roof of the house. Everyone laughed and the tagger screamed back, "How did you get up there?" I replied with an answer that nobody expected; "I climbed". He couldn't get me, so to make it a fair game, I jumped down and ran around. The tagger couldn't reach me so I stopped. It was hilarious. He expected me to keep running so he ran right past me. Eventually, he tagged me. 

The other version of tag we played was banana tag. You had to tag someone in the back, and if both people tagged each other at the same time, they would "roshambo". I wasn't as good at this game, but I was still  quite decent. I didn't watch my back as often as I should have and would be tagged unexpectedly. Most of the times I was startled when someone sneaked up behind me and tagged me, then ran away.

I had a excellent time playing with my friends. I also made new friends and it was a very happy evening. However, I am sad because Nichola and Michala have to go back to Canada, but I hope I can see them again soon!
