The Friend Fights


“Welcome to the Friend Fights. I am the host, Katelyn Russ. You will be in teams of two. There are six challenges. In each challenge there will be one losing team.


Katlyn held up some mats and blankets. “The first challenge is to go outside and sleep there all night. If you come it your team may get a loss. You may use the supplies but nothing else.”


Every team got their pack and waited.



they gathered around the tree outside.

“I guess this is where we part.” Mckenna said.


“Let’s go somewhere away from wind and rain.” Grace suggested.

“That is a good idea.” Mckenna encouraged


It was cold so we got in bed as soon as we found a place and whispered as we huddled.


“We can just get into a sunny spot” Abby said

“But it might rain.” Hope protested.

“It won’t.” Abby said


They got settled-and it started to rain. DSCN3822[1]

As soon as Abby was asleep Hope was gone.


Meanwhile Riley and Joy were huddled. They were so shy nether spoke.


Finally they just dropped and slept.


In the morning everyone met up messy and tired. Hope was with Katlyn.

“Wash up and then come back.” Katlyn said.


Mckenna looked around the nice bathroom. It was as nice as everything else.


When everyone was back Katlyn spoke.

“Hope and Abby, Do you want to take a loss or vote someone off?”

Hope said take a loss but Abby said vote someone off.

“That means you have to go Hope.” Katlyn said “What team is Abby on?”

“Her own.” Hope answered. She knew what the next challenge was, everyone did, and she wanted Abby to know that she was not happy with her.


“It is time for that second challenge.” Katelyn said “Abby since you are on your own team you will just have to work with it.”

DSCN3901[1]“The challenge is a hairstyle  one. On member of each team will do the other’s hair. You can use anything it this basket. Now GO!”

DSCN3902[1]Mckenna and Grace decided that Grace would do Mckenna’s hair.


Mckenna grabbed some stuff and sat down.

DSCN3904[1]Riley and Joy decided that Joy would have her hair done.

DSCN3905[1]Riley grabbed a barrette.

DSCN3906[1]Then she started on Joy’s hair.


Abby grabbed a clip.


Half an hour later they gathered again. Mckenna had wavy hair and a clip, Joy had a nice pullback, and Abby had….messy hair?

“Team Abby loses.” Katelyn announced. “Girls is she going home or taking a loss?”

Mckenna thought of what Abby had done to Hope and said she should leave. the other girls thought that way to and the players were now only four.


“Today we have the art challenge.” Katelyn said to all the contestants. DSCN3976[1]

“One girl from each team will draw something with the utensils and on the canvases.” Katelyn said turning toward the supplies.

“Oh can I do it?” Joy asked Riley.

“Sure.” Riley told her.

“I will do it.” Mckenna said to Grace.

“You do it then.” Grace said.


Mckenna and Joy turned to the canvases and started.


When they were told to present their masterpieces it was clear that Joy’s was much better.

“We will take a loss.” Mckenna said before Katelyn could even ask.


Katelyn explained the rules. We would have thirty minutes to bake and decorate a cupcake. The best one would win.


We added the ingredients and Mckenna added blueberries.


I filled the pans and started to take them to the oven. Joy was putting hers in. I realized that there wasn’t enough time to do both in the oven and turned back to Mckenna.


“This is a crazy idea.” I said “So please don’t vote me off if we lose.”


I put the cupcakes in the microwave and set the timer.


We started decorating our cupcake, already having iced it, with our supplies around us.


Katelyn came to taste our cupcake. DSCN4066[1]

Then Riley and Joy’s.


We all gathered to hear what Katelyn had to say.

“I think it is clear that the winner is Mckenna and Grace!”

“We Will take a loss.” Joy said before Katelyn even asked.

Now we are tied 1-1


Katelyn told us the challenge. A singing challenge.


Riley and I sang. DSCN4228[1]Then Mckenna and Grace.

I knew we would win. We sounded wonderful whereas Mckenna and Grace weren’t even singing the same song! We won. We only had to win one more to win the whole thing!


Katelyn explained the rules of the challenge. A gymnastics contest. I got bar, Riley got beam, (and boy was she excited. She couldn’t get off of it,) Joy got floor and Grace got beam. I hoped we would win, I knew that Grace and I would try our bests. I was great at gymnastics but Riley and Joy were too shy to do anything so who knew? They could be better than us.


Bar was my best and I flew through the routine with grace and speed.


And Grace was graceful on the trampoline.


But when It was Riley’s turn she froze up.


And in her heels Joy was clunky.


When everyone was done Katelyn spoke. “It is clear that Mckenna and Grace won. Which brings us to a tie. Meet me in the gym for the tiebreaker.”


We all sat in the gym for the tie breaker. Katelyn would ask a question and one team would answer.

We were evenly tied. Then Katelyn came to a question that only Joy knew. She knew in-But from her time. Which meant we won.


As soon as it was announced We went up and hugged. Then I realized something. The only reason we won was because Joy was from the 50s. That wasn’t fair.


I pulled Riley up.


Then we all hugged. We were all friends and family and we all deserved to win.

After it was over we we congratulated a lot. Things we back to normal between everyone who took place. Before when we weren’t at the filming place on Saturday there was a wall between the teams. The wall was broken and we were all set free!
