This is so sad and it has me feeling so upset for you. I'm sorry. It's very good to be able to cause such an emotion from the reader. X

:,( This was so sad! I dislike the concept of losing a friend, and the hurt you put in here was good. The way you phrased your sentances sort of gave it a sad tone, and I liked that!

I like the contrast you've set here between the bond of friendship being torn apart and the bookmakr suffering the same fate. The two ideas set each other off well.

I find the plot a little unbelievable though. I presume these are teenagers, due to the way the narator character reacts, but the other's character's reaction is a little over the top. I mean, breaking up a friendship over a bookmark? Either they're younger than your writing style makes out, or their friendship wasn't very strong to begin with.

There are a few mistakes, which would be fixed by getting a beta. I'd be willing to do this if you would like. :)

"too fast that I didn't even have the time to register everything into my mind." - "too" should be 'so' and the words "into my mind" can be cut completely, as they make the sentence seem very heavy.

"like it's just" - "it's" should be 'it was'.

"It's our free" - "It's" should be 'It was'.

"she allowed me to get it under her chair." - The word 'from' should be placed between the words 'it' and 'under'.

"I noticed a bookmark that was inserted in nearly half of the book" - Should be 'I noticed a bookmark that was inserted nearly halfway through the book'.

"holdin'" - As there aren't any other instances of slang in this piece, writing the entire word would be better.

"She sat on her seat, which is, beside me" - Would read better as: 'She sat in her seat beside me'.

"the one who broke it was, HIM." - Never use all uppercase for any such words as this, as it's incorrect use of the language. If you want a word to stand out, put it in italics.
