I waited patiently for Tom that day. He came to me and told me that he lost his father and mother in a car accident and he stays with his uncle. As he is lonely, he has developed a learning disability in life. He cannot concentrate in the class; he is unaware of what is taught to him. He cannot cope up with the pressure of learning. I knew that he had a problem and now I became sure. I felt sorry and hugged him tightly. I told him that he is not alone and I will always be there for him as a friend. I not only gave him much needed support in life. I also helped him with his learning disability. As I am good with academics, I also taught him lessons.
Tom has changed and I am happy for him, he smiles a lot now and plays with other classmates and friends.
I cherish the bond that I share with Tom. He is my best friend!">
I told him that I could very well understand the emotions of the heart. He started talking and told that he had a happy family. His son earned well and he had a caring wife. One day his wife died of cardiac arrest and he lost all his happiness. He then tried to move on and told his son to get married. His son was caring until he did what his wife said. His wife did not like him staying with them, so they decided to give him a one-room apartment instead. Now, in his lonely years he yearns for company. I had tears in my eyes, as I could understand his plight.
I told him that he could call me his friend, as I will always be there when he needs me. Slowly, we developed a good bonding and started playing together. We had so much to discuss and talk about in life. I could see that spark in his eyes and that lost sheen that he had lost. Age does not matter when friendship is true.
I knew I had a best friend in him and I am proud of this fact that this friendship is still alive.">
My captain told me that do not leave your position and go to your friend. He will not be alive anyway, just concentrate on what you are doing. I still went to save my friend and he told me that he was waiting for me to take him to a safe place. He told me he wanted to live more. But, destiny had some other plans and my friend died after five minutes. My captain told me that he told it is of no use. I told him that at least I tried saving my friend until his last breath and that is my duty as a friend. My friend's last words were also the same; he knew that I would come to save him.
We won the battle but I lost my friend. I wish I could have saved him, I still remember him with moist eyes.">
