need each other this much. Maybe it's because of all of
We first met each other in Junior Girl Scouts, around the
Elementary School Period, and we weren't really close back
However in the Middle School Period, she kept popping in
and out of my life. Again, we weren't very close, but we
talked a little more outside of Girl Scouts. Towards the
end of my 7th grade year, I sat with her and Adrian at
lunch some days (which is how I met Adrian). Britta would
also show up randomly on my bus when she was going over
Heather's house. This is when I got her to sign my 7th grade

five minutes away from each other, we're adjusting at an

probably the only friend I've ever had that I've cried over
or for more than once. We've been together through an
incredible amount of personal tragedies and triumphs, and
while we remain, sometimes literally, battle scarred, we
also have never relinquished the love that we have held onto
for each other. We never intended to become so wrapped in
each other, but fate intertwined our lives together, and I
have never been so glad for coincedences.

I dunno. She's still pretty here though.
