Without friendship, life would be pretty boring. Friends keep us honest and, ideally, make us better people. These prompts are all about treating those around you like you want to be treated. Kindness is contagious. Pass it on!

For more instructions, refer to the Getting Started post.

#109 - Ainsley hadn't always felt like a rubber band was twisted around her heart. The pain started when Leela stopped talking to her. But Ainsley couldn’t blame Leela. A secret was a secret no matter who begged her to tell. And she had definitely opened her mouth to the wrong person. What was the secret? Who did Ainsley tell and why? How did exposing the secret affect Leela? How does Ainsley make it up to Leela?

#110 - Brent and Carter are so lucky to be going on a vacation to Mexico together. They've been best friends for the past two years and their parents let them do everything together. But when Carter meets Victoria on the beach the first day, he tells Brent to find someone else to hang out with. Carter only wants to be with Victoria. How does Brent respond? What happens when Victoria leaves Mexico before Brent and Carter? Does Carter apologize? Is their friendship over or does Carter learn a valuable lesson?

#111 - Being twelve was the worst. You weren't a teen yet, but you weren't an elementary school twerp either. Calvin was miserable...until one lucky day twelve-year-old Jake moved in next door. Jake had everything you could imagine too. He had every gaming console, hundreds of Lego sets, and something Calvin never thought existed: a time machine. Calvin couldn't wait to jump in. Since Calvin is miserable being twelve, what year does he choose to go to? Is he happier in that year? If not, what does he miss? What changes does Calvin make to his life when he returns from the future?

#112 - If you and your best friend were stranded on an island together, how would you work together to stay alive? While exploring the island, what interesting items do you find? How do you use them? What would you do for entertainment? How would you try to get help?
