    Who I Am And Who She Knew

    We met in 6th grade. Both enthralled with Star Wars. Our friendship was immediate. We had the same interests in everything. We liked Harry Potter, wrote a play based on it. Then I moved that summer. She was the only person I stayed in contact with. We were still close as ever. I...

    My "Best Friend" Hates Me

    I don't know where to begin, so I'll start July 2012, when I met her. Many people would say we're not real friends, because we met over the Internet, but we knew better. Over the first few months of our friendship, we already knew everything about each other, met each others...

    I may not have ever been your best friend.

    I know I was second best a lot, but even so, as much as I hate to it admit- you were mine. I kept convincing myself that we were never really friends, but now that we aren't I can see that I don't think I'll ever find another person who knew me better. I try to avoid talking...

    "i Always Thought I'd Look Back On Our Tears And Laugh, But I Never Thought I'd Look Back On Our Laughter And Cry."

    I had a best friend- a true, hard core, until-the-end kind of best friend. Or so I thought, anyway. Late into our friendship I found out she had stolen from me, lied to me, etc... Needless to say, the friendship depleted. She quit school and I never saw her anymore. For some...

    Brothers For 5 Years.

    In 4th grade, I met Lane. He was that fun loving, talkative guy, who always knew how to cheer someone up. We both liked video games, outdoors, and we had one special thing in common: both our families are kind of messed up. His parents were divorced and his dad drank a lot. My...
