"In another life I would make you stay so I don't have to say you were the one that got away" -Katy Perry
It was one in the afternoon that he tripped over the box filled with all of his childhood memories. Leaning down, he picked up the picture that was on the topof everything else. It was the last picture taken of him and his childhood best friend. He instantly flashed back to the day that the two had met, a day that would lead to a childhood of fun, love, and heartbreak. A childhood that would lead to the picture in front of him.
"DAVID! Darling, come inside and meet the new neighbors!" Five year old David Krejci's mother called out to him from the back proch. David quickly dropped the hockey stick that he was playing with and ran as fast as he could, hoping that the rumors were true, that the new neighbors had a son about his age.
"David, darling, this is Mrs. Carr and her daughter Lenox." Mrs. Krejci introduced her son.
"You're a girl." David stated bluntly.
"David!" His mother scolded. But, before she could finish, the young girl walked right up to David and told him,
"Yeah, I am a girl. What's it to you?" And just like that, the two were best fiends ever since.
David Krejci let a small smile grace his lips as he moved onto the next item in the box, the picture that he had first grabbed still in his lap. This time, he actually laughed as he pulled out yet another picture. It was the picture from Lenox's eight birthday and the both of them had cake smeared all over their faces.
"Lenox come back here!" David hollered as he chased after the now eight year old girl.
"NO!" Was his giggled response. Laughing, the young boy continued to chase his young friend around the yard.
"But you haven't finished your cake!" David yelled as he made a lunge for the girl. The two fell to the ground, causing David to drop the plate of cake that he was holding in the process.
"Aw...now I can't eat it no more, it's on the ground." Lenox stated with sarcasm. Eyebrows meeting together in the middle of his forehead, David concentrated hard on his answer.
"Oh yes you can." He finally concluded, taking a clump of the now dirt filled cake into his hands. Before Lenox could even get a response out, that same handful of cake was shoved into her face. And well, the rest was history.
With one more chuckle escaping his body, David pulled out the next item; a small piece of the cast that he had to get when he broke his arm playing hockey.
"It really hurts. Like really badly." Ten year old David stated as he layed on the ice, holding his arm and trying not to cry because it was "uncool".
"I think that we should get you to the hospital son, it looks broken." His coach at the time informed David after examing his now oddly shaped arm.
"See this is why you shouldn't play hockey: I get to see you less and you can get really hurt. Love Lenny." David read off of the blue plaster that now encased his arm. His best friend had just finished being the first person to sign it.
