Y-Speak: Broken friendship

IF LOVE gets broken you can look for new one. If a glass gets broken, you can always buy new one. But, if FRIENDSHIP gets broken you can never have the same one.

When I was in Grade 7, I had a lot of friends. I was one of the most popular girls in school. It was my first year at my new school and I thought it would be difficult. But, as soon as I was in my new class I was sure it would be fine.

On the 7th of November 2009, I was on an instant messaging website talking to my friend – she had told me that some other girls have been bothering her. I was angry that my friend was upset.

So I asked her to add me into the conversation. She added me in and immediately the girl started calling us various names. I defended myself and my friend and then asked her what school she went to and it turned out she went to my school and was in the same year. I was curious to find out who she was. She kept calling us names so we arranged to fight that Monday in school, on the 9th of November 2009, it was Monday and we saw her but she ran away.

We saw her again by lunch time and she was pale and shaking. I felt guilty and sad.

I said to her, "Don’t worry, I won’t touch you. I didn’t want to hurt you I was just upset, she then smiled and said oh thank you so much. I told my friend I wasn’t going to hit her and she got angry and went straight to the other girl and said “I’m still going to" but I pulled her away.

The next few days passed by and the girl I was supposed to fight became my best friend. We loved each other and we are really good friends. I have been invited to her house and we had so much fun taking pictures and messing around.

But we were not able to see each other during summer. When I got back I texted her, but she didn’t text back. During the last week of summer she texted me and all she said was, "hi".

I didn't see her when school resumed and we still haven't talked. Our friendship just broke apart and I don’t know how to fix it. Until now I didn’t see her. I missed her very much. (Jenny Campomanes, NDDU Intern)
