There was a girl in my p.e class that is a grade younger than me. She was always quiet in the class and I always wondered if she had anyone to talk to. I am sort of quiet myself and I would think of all the times I had no one to talk to. Over the whole year I would say hi to her and sometimes she would come over and play whatever sport we were playing that day with me. Whenever she came over I made it my goal to make her laugh. I payed most of my attention to her and not my other friends because I see my other friends in other classes. Then, the last day of school came around I walked with her on the track by ourselves. I was asking her about next year and how she will be in 8th grade. Then, I started talking about how I am leaving for high school. When I mention leaving she told me something that I will never forget. She told me that she has no other friends. I am her only friend. I am the only one who talks to her. Then, she told me that she is going to miss me. I talked to her maybe 2-3 times a week. She just wanted someone to talk to her. People lose friends all the time but what people don't understand is that some people would die for one friend. So don't ruin a friendship over something dumb because you are lucky to have that one friend.
