How are you? How's life treating you? How are your studies? Are you still in the UAE? Haha, Forgive me for asking so many questions, I just really wanna know how you are. Do you still remember me? I'm not so sure if you do, but I want you to know that I still remember you. I still remember my first ever grade 1 best friend. Sigh. I miss you. I tried adding you on Facebook, but you haven't accepted my friend request yet. But that's fine with me; maybe you're just busy nowadays. Or... maybe you just don't remember me anymore? I don't know. By the way, do you still have the blue barbie necklace I gave you the last time we saw each other? It's okay if you don't! After all, it's just a material thing, right? But I still have the beaded necklace you gave me. I've always kept it in a small box inside one of my drawers. It's kept safe there and I always remember you every time I sort my things out and find it.
I know I didn't get to thank you for basically everything that you've done for me, and so, I wanna do that now. Thank you. Thank you for sticking by my side during my first year in school. Thank you for being my friend when I thought no one wanted to be friends with me. Thank you for reminding me that school isn't so scary, and for being patient with my shy self. Thank you for walking with me all the way upstairs to our older siblings' classroom. Thank you for all the happy memories we spent together. You were always there for me and I really appreciate that.
I was such a naive little six year old girl when we met, and I didn't really understand what friendship was supposed to be like. I took it for granted. I was so busy having fun with you and I didn't realize that our friendship could only remain temporary. A year rolled by so quickly and soon enough, we were already in grade 2. I was so excited to see you! On the first day of grade second grade, I looked for you. You weren't there. I convinced myself that maybe, just maybe, you would show up the next day. But you didn't. I waited for you day after day but you didn't come. I think you transferred to another school, but I don't know what school it was. I began feeling like a loner girl with no friends at all again. Yeah, I still had some friends from the previous year, but I wasn't so "close" with them as I was with you. Somehow though, I was able to get through that lonely stage during that school year, and I made new friends! I was once again a happy seven year old.
Years passed, and now, we both are on the final year of our studies. We may have drifted apart from each other, but I still remember you. I still miss you. I hope you remember me too! Love you! We'll see each other soon, kay? Well, I hope...
Your (best) friend,
