Day 1 – 13 February
Letter 1 – To my best friend
You are one of the most amazing people I have ever had the privilege to meet. You are my light whenever I have dark days and I know that I’m not always there for you when you need me, that I’m nowhere to be found when you’re having a bad day and I apologise profusely for that. I know that it’s tough on you and it’s tough on me too. I just wish that there were enough hours in a day. Of course the fact that I’m always busy doesn’t help anything.
I wish you could see how beautiful you are, Larri. Honestly, I’ve never had a friend that loves me so much and I really wish that all this drama that’s going on in both our lives wasn’t there. I wish that you could smile all day, every day like you used to.
I like the fact that we’re so different and yet we completely ‘fit’ together. I love having such an amazing, weird, colourful, funny, intelligent, talented , strong-willed friend in my life. I love you like I love my own sisters.
I know that it gets hard. I know that lately we’ve been fighting and we never really seem to have enough time to spend together like best-friends do and I’m sorry. I’m so sorry Larri.
I don’t really remember the day we met because I feel like I’ve know you my entire life. What I do remember though is the first time you comforted me. We were sitting outside the library and I wasn’t having a good day. But being the random person you are, you came and sat with me and told me that you wanted to be my friend. Because of that insanely huge smile on your face, I thought: Gee, is this girl weird or what?? And then like an idiot, I asked you what your name was and you said Larri. I was so confused that I pulled a ‘huh’ face and you had to explain to me that it was just your nickname and not your real one. And after my ridiculous confusion, we just couldn’t stop laughing at the way my face looked. I think that that was the first time you got in trouble with the librarians.
From that day on, we’ve been inseparable and I thank-you for getting me through the first years of high school, and all the other nasty things that Fate threw at me.
I love you weirdo!!!
