A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down. ~ Arnold H. Glasow
Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies. ~ Aristotle
Friends. Compadres. Buddies. Pals. There's numerous names for these special people that we consider near and dear to us. They're always there for us, no matter how stupid we may act...a friend that sticks through to the end is something to love, treasure, and be proud of.
Some of us have multiple friends. Some of us have only one. The purpose of this challenge is to write about your absolute best friend, the one you can always rely on, trust, and love. Write about when you met [if you can remember, that is], how your friendship blossomed, where you stand now...just gush about them. I want some feel-good stuff. I want to cry buckets. BUCKETS.
Have more than one friend, and don't feel comfortable with raising one on a pedestal? That's fine -- just pick one and gush on them. Heck, if you're feeling daring, write about ALL of them.
It doesn't matter who it is. It could be someone you know in person, someone you know online.
However, there's a set of rules. Nothing too big, should be easy to follow.
1. Please be concise and literate.
2. Please please PLEASE make it more than one paragraph. I don't want a giant essay or anything, but just make it a decent length. 4-5 paragraphs at the very least.
3. Please, don't cheat write about boyfriends or girlfriends. I understand if you feel close to them like that, but the bond between a mate and a friend are really rather different. Plus, quite frankly, friends last forever. [...unless you're getting married. But most people I know aren't.]
4. Finally, don't take the dumb way out and write about an anime, game, or some other fictional character. Nothing wrong with feeling attached to fictional characters, but this is for flesh and blood. Real people. etc.
So there you have it. I hope to see some real heartwarming stuff, so get to it~!
