YOU CAN GO DOWN TO THE PIER. LOOK IN THE REFRIGERATOR AND GRAB YOUR PACKED BAG OF A SNACK.”  ANNA’S MUM KNEW HER QUITE WELL THAT SHE WOULD NOT BE HOME UNTIL RIGHT BEFORE IT GETS DARK.  SHE KNEW HOW MUCH ANNA LOVED BEING BY THE WATER.  ANNA GOES TO THE REFRIGERATOR AND GRABS THE BAG WITH THE THERMOS HER MOM FILLED WITH JUICE. HEADING OUT THE DOOR, ANNA KISSED HER MUM AND THANKED HER FOR PACKING A SNACK BAG. SLOWING WALKING DOWN THE DIRT ROAD, ANNA WOULD BREATHE IN THE FRESH AIR AND TAKE IN THE BEAUTY OF NATURES SURROUNDINGS.  SHE LISTENED CONTENTLY TO THE BIRDS SINGING WHILE STOPING AT EVERY FLOWER SHE FAVORED TO SMELL THE BEAUTY OF ITS FRAGRANT SCENT.  AS SHE WALKED, SHE WOULD STOP AT CERTAIN TREES GREETING BY THEIR NAMES REMEMBERING EACH STORY TO FIT EACH TREE’S NAME.  THIS WAS THE MAIN REASON THE KIDS AT SCHOOL PICKED ON ANNA. THE KIDS THOUGHT SHE WAS CRAZY FOR TALKING TO TREES.  ANNNA WOULD TELL THEM IF IT WAS FOR TREES THERE WOULD BE NO LIFE HERE ON EARTH. SHE WOULD USE A PARABLE OF HUMAN LIFE TO THE TREES THAT EACH HAS A PURPOSE AND STORY.  THE KIDS DIDN’T UNDERSTAND ANNA’S LOGIC.  ANNA THOUGHT PERHAPS SOMEDAY THEY SHALL UNDERSTAND WHEN ARE OLDER AND WHAT ANNA WAS SAYING.  ANNA FINALLY REACHED THE PIER AND STARTED TO WALK DOWN IT TO THE END WHERE SHE ALWAYS SAT CLOSEST TO THE WATER. ANNE SAT DOWN PUTTING HER SNACK BAG ASIDE.  SHE TOOK OUT HER NOTEBOOKS AND DID AS SHE ALWAYS DID WHEN SHE FIRST GOT TO THE PIER.  SHE WOULD TALK TO OUR HEAVENLY FATHER AND TELL HIM ABOUT HER DAY AT SCHOOL.  AM WAS ALREADY AT HIS TREE PLAYING AND DREAMING OF LEADING A GREAT ARMY. HE HAD A SMALL ARMY FORT FOR HIS SOLDIERS INSIDE THE FORT HE HAD BUILT FOR HIMSELF.  WHEN AM PLAYS ARMY HE ALWAYS PUTS ON HIS DAD’S ARMY HAT.ON THIS PARTICULAR DAY THERE WAS A NOISE OUTSIDE AM’S FORT THAT STARTLED HIM.  HE PULLED BACK THE CURTAIN TO SEE WHAT HAD MADE THE NOISE BUT HE SAW NOTHING.  HE WALKED OUTSIDE TO SEE WHAT HAD MADE SUCH A STRANGE NOISE.  AS HE LOOKED TOWARDS THE PIER, HE SAW THIS GIRL TALKING AWAY BUT NOBODY WAS THERE.  AM WAS VERY SHY BUT HIS CURIOSITY HAD GOT THE BEST OF HIM.  HE THOUGHT TO HIMSELF WHO IN THE WORLD IS THIS GIRL TALKING TO WHEN NOBODY IS THERE.  IS SHE TALKING TO HERSELF?  AM HAD TO FIND OUT WHO THIS GIRL WAS TALKING TO AND WHO SHE WAS.  AM STARTED TO WALK TOWARDS THE PIER. AS HE GOT CLOSER TO THE PIER HE COULD SEE ANNA AND HER TALKING AWAY.  HE THOUGHT TO HIMSELF, “THIS GIRL MUST BE TALKING A HUNDRED MILES A HOUR WITH NOBODY LISTENING.”  AM LAUGHED AGAIN THINKING TO HIMSELF I HAVE TO FIND OUT WHO THIS GIRL IS TALKING TO.  HE THOUGHT SHE CANT BE TALKING TO THE FISH BECAUSE THE NOISE WOULD SCARE THEM AWAY.  AS AM REACHES WHERE ANNA IS SITTING,  HE NOTICES SHE HAS STOPPED TALKING OR EVEN NOTICED HIM WALKING UP ON HER. HIS OVERWELMING CURIOSITY HAD HIM BLURTING OUT, “ WHO IN THE WORLD ARE YOU TALKING TO?”  THE VOICE STARTLED ANNE WHEN SHE HEARD IT.  SHE LOOKED UP TO SEE WHO THIS VOICE CAME FROM.  AS SHE SAW THE BOY SHE REPLIED, “ I CANT ANSWER YOUR QUESTION UNLESS I KNOW YOUR NAME.  I’M NOT ALLOWED TO TALK TO STRANGERS.”  AM REPLIED,” MY NAME IS AM.  NOW WHO IS YOUR IMAGINERY FRIEND YOU ARE TALKING TO?”  ANNA REPLIED, “NICE TO MEET YOU AM.  MY FRIEND IS NOT IMAGINERY.  YOU CAN’T SEE HIM.  HE IS THE REASON WE HAVE LIFE.  HE IS THE GIVER OF LIFE TO EVERYTHING. HE IS OUR CREATOR.”  AM REPLIES, “HOW DO YOU EVEN KNOW HE HEARS YOU?”  ANNE REPLIED, “WELL GOD LIVES WAY UP IN THE SKY BEYOND WHERE AIRPLANES FLY.  HE WATCHES OVER THE EARTH AND ALL THE OTHER PLANETS THE UNIVERSE AND GALAXY.”  AM REPLIES, “HAVE YOU EVER SEEN GOD? HOW DO YOU KNOW HE EXIST WHEN YOU CAN’T SEE BEYOND WHERE AIRPLANES FLY?” ANNA ANSWERS AM BY SAYING, “CLOSE YOUR EYES.  WHAT DO YOU FEEL ON YOUR FACE?”  AM REPLIES, “THE WIND” ANNA REPLIES, “OPEN YOUR EYES. CAN YOU SEE THE WIND?”  AM REPLIES, “NO BUT YOU CAN SEE THE WIND BLOW THINGS BUT YOU CANT SEE IT.”  ANNA REPLIES, “YOU CANT SEE GOD BUT YOU CAN FEEL HIM MOVING IN OUR HEARTS. GOD IS LIKE THE WIND.  YOU CAN’T SEE HIM BUT YOU KNOW HE’S HERE.”  ANNA GOES ON TO SAY, “AM, LOOK UP TO THE SKY. WHAT DO YOU SEE?” AM ANSWERS, “I SEE THE BLUE SKY THE CLOUDS AND THE SUN.” ANNA ASK, “CAN YOU TOUCH THE SUN THE CLOUDS OR THE SKY?” AM REPLIES “NO” ANNA GOES ON TO SAY, “ JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING DOESN’T APPLY TO ALL THE PHYSICAL SENSES YOU HAVE DOES NOT MEAN IT DOES NOT EXIST.  BESIDES GOD IS SPIRITUAL.  HE SPEAKS TO YOUR HEART YOUR SOUL AND YOUR MIND. WHEN YOU PRAY AND ASK FOR THINGS OR ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW AND WHEN THE ANSWER OR THINGS COME; YOU KNOW GOD EXIST.”  AM REPLIES “WHAT THINGS AND ANSWERS DO YOU PRAY FOR?”  ANNA REPLIES, “I PRAY FOR A BEST FRIEND AND GOD SENT ME YOU.  NOW THAT IS PROOF GOD EXIST.”  AM REPLIES, “YOU KNOW WHAT ANNA?” ANNA ASKED” WHAT” AM REPLIES, “IVE BEEN WISHING FOR A BEST FRIEND BECAUSE I’M SO LONELY ALWAYS PLAYING BY MYSELF.”  ANNA REPLIED, “GOD IS NOT GENIE BUT IT SEEMS HE HEARD BOTH OF US AND ANSWERED. SEE GOD DOES EXIST AM.”  AM REPLIES, “YEAH WHAT YOU HAVE SAID MAKES SENSE.”  AM THOUGHT TO HIMSELF, “THIS WHOLE SITUATION SEEMED A BIT STRANGE THAT I DON’T FEEL SHY AROUND ANNA ONE BIT.  SHE IS SO EASY TO TALK TO.  ANNA MADE HIM FEEL QUITE COMFORTABLE AS IF HE HAD KNOWN HER FOR A VERY LONG TIME.  AM SAT DOWN NEXT TO ANNA.  ANNA HAD BECOME A BIT HUNGRY FROM ALL THE TALKING SHE HAD BEEN DOING.  SHE REACHED IN HER BAG AND TOOK OUT HER PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY SANDWICH ALONG WITH CHIPS.  ANNA TURNED TOWARDS AM AND SAID, “WOULD YOU LIKE HALF OF MY SANDWICH?”  AM ANSWERED, “YEAH, I AM A BIT HUNGRY.” ANNA REPLIED, “FIRST DWE HAVE TO MAKE A PINKIE PROMISE TO BE BEST FRIENDS FOREVER.  WE WILL HAVE TO DO THREE THINGS TO MAKE IT OFFICIAL. THE THREE THINGS WE WILL HAVE TO DO TO MAKE IT OFFICIAL IS THE PROMISE ITSELF WITH OUR PINKIES, YOU HAVE TO TAKE A BITE OFF MY HALF OF PBJ AND I BITE OFF YOUR HALF.  I WILL SEAL OUR PROMISE BY GIVING YOU MY MOST FAVORITE THING IN THE WORLD TO MY BEST FRIEND.”  AM REPLIED OKAY BUT I HAVE THREE THINGS OF MY OWN TO MAKE IT OFFICIAL.  FIRST YOU WILL HAVE TO HOLD MY HAND RUN AND JUMP OFF THE PIER.  SECOND YOU WILL HAVE TO PLAY ARMY WITH ME BUT I ALWAYS GET TO BE THE GENERAL THAT LEADS THE ARMY.

I AM ASKING YOU TO PLAY WITH ME IN A IMAGINATIVE STORY.”  AM REPLIED, “ WELL SINCE YOU PUT IT THAT WAY, I GUESS I CAN BUT I GET TO BE THE KING OF THE SEA.”  ANNA REPLIED, “ OKAY AM. NOW LETS MAKE ALL THIS OFFICIAL.  TAKE A BITE OF MY HALF OF THE SANDWICH AND ILL TAKE A BITE OFF YOURS.  THEN WE PUT OUR PINKIES TOGETHER AND SAY PINKIE PROMISE BEST FRIENDS FOREVER.” AM REPLIED, “OKAY, HE CLOSED HIS EYES TIGHT MOVING TOWARDS ANNA’S HALF OF THE SANDWICH TO TAKE A BITE OFF OF IT.” ANNA LAUGHED THINKING TO HERSELF, “AM LOOKS AS IF ITS GOING TO KILL HIM TO TAKE A BITE OFF MY SANDWICH.”  AM TOOK A BITE.  AM SAID SMILING, “ NOW YOU HAVE TO TAKE A BITE OFF MY HALF.” ANNA LEANED OVER AND TOOK THE BIGGEST BITE OFF AM’S SANDWICH.

YOU CAN’T HAVE HIM BACK UNTIL YOU MAKE THE GENERAL A NICE MAN.”  AM REPLIES,” ANNA THAT IS NOT HOW THE ARMY REALLY IS.”  ANNA REPLIED, “WELL AM, AS OF NOW WE ARE CHANGING IT OR I’M NOT PLAYING ARMY WITH YOU.”  AM REPLIES, “ANNA, GENERALS CANL’T BE NICE.  A GENERAL HAS TO TRAIN HIS MEN TO FIGHT.

MAYBE SOMEDAY ANNA WHEN WE GET OLDER.”  ANNA REPLIED, “WHEN THAT SOMEDAY COMES AM, I AM GOING TO REMIND YOU OF THIS CONVERSATION AND YOU CAN BE MY HERO.”  AM LAUGHED REPLYING,”WE BOTH CAN BE HEROS SOMEDAY ANNA.  IT ALL STARTS WITH A DREAM ANNA AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS FOLLOW IT.”  AM GOES ON TO SAY, “ANNA, YOU DRIVE A HARD BARGAIN. I’M GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE THE GENERAL A HERO TO SAVE THE WORLD AND DO GOOD FOR PEOPLE.  BESIDES I CAN’T STAND THAT POUTY LOOK ON YOUR FACE.  IT JUST DOESN’T LOOK GOOD ON YOU.  YOUR SMILE IS MUCH PRETTIER.”  THEY WENT BACK TO TREE TO PLAY ARMY FOR AWHILE.  AM WAS EVEN KIND ENOUGH TO SHARE HIS GENERAL WITH ANNA BEING THE GENERAL FOR A SHORT TIME.  BEFORE ANNE AND AM REALIZED THE SUN WAS GOING DOWN.  BOTH ANNA AND AM HAD CURFEWS TO BE IN THE HOUSE BEFORE DARK.  ANNA SAID TO AM, “AM, I HAVE TO GET HOME BEFORE IT GETS DARK BECAUSE IF I DON’T MY MUM IS GOING TO BE ANGRY WITH ME.  IVE HAD SO MUCH FUN PLAYING AND GETTING TO KNOW YOU TODAY AM.  SOMEDAY I’M GOING TO WRITE A STORY OF MY BEST FRIEND AM.  IT’S GOING TO BE THE BEST STORY ANYBODY COULD EVER READ.  IT’S GOING TO TOUCH THEIR HEARTS AND SOUL TO SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY.”  AM SMILED AND SAID,”ANNA, I’M STARTING TO BELIEVE THERE IS A GOD AND HE DEFINITELY ANSWERS PRAYERS.” ANNA SMILED AND WINKED AT AM WITH HER RIGHT EYE SAYING, ”YES HE DOES AM.” WENT ON TO SAYING,”AM, YOU ARE MY BEST FRIEND BUT GOD IS MY BESTEST BEST FRIEND THAT ALWAYS LISTENS TO ME AND GUIDES ME.  SOMETIMES I GO OFF HALF COCKED DOING THINGS MY OWN WAY BUT HE ENDS UP NUDGING ME BACK A  TO DOING THINGS HIS WAY.”  AM LAUGHED TO REPLY,”ANNA YOU ARE DEFINITELY ONE OF A KIND”  ANNA REPLIED,”DON’T YOU FORGET IT.” AM AND ANNA LAUGHED.  AM SAID,”WELL ANNA, WE BETTER GET HOME BEFORE WE BOTH GET IN A BIT OF TROUBLE.”  ANNA AGREED.  AM PACKED UP HIS SOLDIERS IN HIS BOX AND ANNA GRABBED HER BAG WITH HER NOTEBOOKS.  AM TOOK ANNA BY THE HAND AND THEY STARTED TO WALK TOWARDS HOME TOGETHER AS FAR AS THEY COULD TOGETHER BEFORE THEY MET THE INTERSECTION WHERE THEY WOULD HAVE TO PART TO WALK THE REST OF THE WAY HOME.  WHEN THEY REACHED THE INTERSECTION WHERE THEY WOULD HAVE PART AM LOOKED AT ANNA AND SAID,”WELL ANNA UNTIL TOMORROW, MY BEST FRIEND AND WE SEE EACH OTHER AGAIN.”  AM KISSED ANNA ON THE FOREHEAD. SURPRISED BY AM’S ACTIONS OF KISSING HER ON THE FOREHEAD ANNA HAD TO FORCE THE WORDS FROM HER MOUTH TO REPLY,” AM YOU ARE THE BEST, I’LL SEE YOU TOMORROW AFTER SCHOOL.” THEY BOTH SMILED AND WENT THEIR SEPARATE WAYS.  AS AM WALKED THE REST OF THE WAY HOME HE ACTUALLY STARTED TO PRAY.  HE SAID,”GOD I KNOW I NEVER BEIEVED IN YOU OR EVEN TALKED TO YOU BEFORE BUT IF YOU ARE LISTENING NOW; I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU FOR PUTTING ANNA IN MY LIFE AS A BEST FRIEND.  AROUND HER I’M NOT SHY.  SHE MAKES ME SO HAPPY GOD.  THOUGH SHE CAN BE A BIT BOSSY IN GETTING YOU TO SEE THINGS HER WAY GOD I STILL LIKE HER.  GOD YOU ARE THE BEST.  THANK YOU.”  AS AM REACHED HIS FRONT DOOR, HE SAW HIS MOTHER WAITING FOR HIM.  AM’S MOTHER ASKED,” AM, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL DAY.”  AM REPLIED, “MOM WAIT TILL YOU HEAR.  I MADE A NEW FRIEND. HER NAME IS ANNA AND SHE IS THE BEST.  SHE EVEN PLAYED ARMY WITH ME. “  AM WENT ON TO TELL HIS MOM ABOUT HIS DAY AND EVERYTHING ABOUT ANNE THAT HE KNEW.  AFTER AM EXPLAINED HIS MOTHER SMILED.  SHE WAS QUITE PLEASED AM HAD A FRIEND AND TO SEE HIM SO HAPPY TALKING ABOUT HER JUST MELTED AM’S MOTHERS HEART.  AM SAT DOWN WITH HIS FAMILY TO EAT DINNER.  HIS FAMILY A TRADITION OF SHARING WHAT HAPPENED IN THEIR DAY.”  AFTER DINNER, AM WENT INTO HIS ROOM TO GET HIS CLOTHES FOR BED AND WENT INTO THE BATHROOM TO GET HIS BATH.  AFTER HIS BATH AM WENT INTO HIS ROOM AND GOT INTO BED.  WHILE LAYING IN BED HIS EXCITEMENT OF HAVING A NEW FRIEND OVERWELMED HIM. AM WAS NOT ONE FOR WRITING OR JOURNELING BUT HE FELT THE NEED TO WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN ABOUT HIS NEW FRIEND AND HOW HE MET HER.  ON THE OTHER SIDE ANNA WALKED IN THE FRONT DOOR AND HER MUM SAID, “ANNA YOUR DINNER IS GETTING COLD.  IVE BEEN SITTING HER WAITING FOR YOU TO EAT.”  ANNA REPLIED,”MUM, I’M SORRY. I MADE A NEW FRIEND TODAY NAMED AM.  WHILE WE ARE EATING, I’LL TELL YOU ALL ABOUT HIM.”  ANNA’S MUM SAID,”THAT’S VERY NICE ANNA.  I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR ALL ABOUT YOUR DAY.”  ANNA SAT WITH HER MOM TELLING HER ALL ABOUT HER DAY WITH AM AND EVERYTHING THEY DID WHILE EATING DINNER.  AFTER ANNA FINISHED DINNER,  SHE GRABBED HER PAJAMMAS AND WENT TO TAKE HER BATH.  AFTER ANNA FINISHED WITH HER BATH, SHE LAYED IN BED WRITING IN HER JOURNEL AND SAYING HER PRAYERS.
