When Rose first started middle school, she was extremely shy. Because she was such an introvert, she sat in her seat during the first day of class in the back of the classroom and hoped that nobody would approach her.
However, to her surprise, a girl named Jaden sat down right next to her. Jaden had shoulder length, curly red hair and lots of freckles - she was really pretty! She turned to Rose and introduced herself, and a friendship immediately blossomed.
Rose and Jaden started to hang out all the time. They had sleepovers, saw movies, went on hikes and did other fun activities together. But one night, while Jaden and Rose were having a sleepover, Rose couldn't help but notice that Jaden seemed unusually upset. Jaden excused herself to the bathroom, but when she came back, it was clear that she had been crying. When Rose asked her what was going on, Jaden refused to open up.
The next day, after Jaden's mom picked her up, Rose's mom sat her down to explain what had happened the previous night. Jaden was transgender, and she had been crying at the sleepover because she was so afraid that Rose wouldn't accept her once she found out. When she was in the bathroom, she was having a panic attack at the thought of Rose knowing the truth and deserting her.
Although the news was surprising to her at first, Rose cared so much about her friendship with Jaden, and she refused to let anything change that. Instead of being angry and saying to herself, "my best friend kept a huge secret from me," Rose decided to talk to Jaden directly. They talked everything over, and Jaden was so happy that she was finally able to be open and honest with Rose. As a result, Rose and Jaden are still friends to this day, and they have an awesome friendship.
