Stick With the Group is a journal entry by Samantha Greenbriar, dated March 11, 1995. This entry discusses a recent field trip that Sam and Lonnie partook in; they snuck away from the rest of the students and became lost for several hours. When they finally found their way back, the bus was just preparing to leave.
The school called Janice and Terrence Greenbriar to tell them of Sam's misbehavior. Though Sam expressed doubts that their parents knew about her relationship with Lonnie, she mentioned that it was likely that the other students at school did.
They tell you to stick with the group on field trips, Katie. There's a reason for that. Lonnie and I snuck off on the side paths at Multnomah Falls and got a little lost. Okay, a lot lost. Like, for hours. RIGHT before the bus left, we found a trail, and came running down the path, soaked and covered in mud, shouting for the bus not to leave... The school called home... mom and dad said "you didn't get in trouble like this BEFORE you met that Lonnie girl..." but I don't think they KNOW-know. About us. The kids at school though...I'm really afraid that's a whole other story. Stick with the group, Katie. Stick with the group.
