Daily Prompt: Tell us the origin story of your best friend. How did you become friends? What is it that keeps your friendship rockin’ after all these years?
My best friend ‘S’ and I still laugh about that time we met for the first time. That was first and the last time we’d ever fight !
We were in fifth grade and she was the newcomer in our class. I didn’t really notice her the first time, just went about with my other friends. One day in recess, I was standing near my chair with my geometry box on the chair’s arm rest. She passed knocking my geometer off the chair. I glared at her, I said something about “Look where you are going”, she said “I didn’t knock it over” , I replied: “Yes you did” . We glared at each other some more with angry face and then went about doing whatever we were doing separately. After that we met some more, got to know each other better and since then we have been best friends!
we exchanged an argument that lasted barely 30 seconds but I’ll always remember it. ‘S’ refuses to acknowledge this, she says she doesn’t remember anything like this happening because she doesn’t fight randomly with strangers ! Me and my other friends who were present as a witness there, are still trying to remind her that this actually happened…well someday she’ll admit this…
We have managed to stay besties for such a long period of time, mainly because we understand each other in almost every sense. We know when to compromise for each other, give the other a benefit of doubt and more importantly space.
My fiery personality and her calm personality complement each other really well. I love her and she loves me, its enough for us!
We went out to eat yesterday:
