True Friendship

[While discussing the current place in which I find myself, emotionally speaking...]

Him: Do you want out?

Me: I don't know. Not really. Not right now.

Him: Okay.

[He pauses to consider this for a moment.]

Him: Well if you want out, give me a call.
I'll be there.

[I begin to cry. After a moment, I look up at him with wide eyes and tear-stained face.]

Me: What if I get stuck here forever?

[He looks at me silently for a moment.]

Him: Then I will stay here with you.


And that, dear readers, is friendship.

TB - despite preliminary fears to the contrary, i know my friends will always be there for me. and i'm certain that if you were ever in a situation where you needed support, your friends would all be there for you just as strongly. i hope you would be willing to turn to them for help, too. i can tell you from experience that there is nothing so comforting as the knowledge that people will support and love you through anything. -PE
