My Best Gift
by Sino C A
I had a friend from 3rd STD...she always made me laugh. She was so funny in her nature, even now. Trust me, I'm so used to her.
But one day she stopped her schooling, and because of her father's relocation, moved to another city.
I remember the days we used to fight, the days when I carried her sister on my bicycle to school and the days we used to visit each others house - playing, cracking jokes, stealing gooseberries from the neighbors - it was all just so amazing when I recall those wonderful days.
I still remember the final day when she bid her goodbye to me and I cried like a baby, holding her back without leaving her hand. It was quite the emotional drama as all other students ran to try to hold me back as she left the school campus.
Yes I cried myself to sleep that night.
It has been almost 14 years now, 3 years being together and 11 years being apart. I miss u my friend... u were my awesome gift.
