Customer Question

Today at school, during lunch, I recorded my friend saying bad things about me when i left to go to the lunchlines to my lunch table. There are four people involved in the recording, including her. Two of the people knew they were being recoded. My friend and the last person did not. When I sent my friend the recording, she got very angy and said what i did was illegal and that she'd press charges as soon as possible. I live in illinois, is what i did illegal? Also, i did not send the recording to anyone but my sister and one friend.
