"Come on jen,let's go." She whispered in my ears.
"What! Are you out of your mind? What if we get caught?" I replied in a whisper.
"You worry too much hon, I'll handle everything. And I got 2 tickets for the festival. Today is the last day. Trust me, we're gonna regret if we don't go." She said with a smirk. 
"If we go from here, we're gonna regret it more." I stopped for a minute and said " Ok then, let's go. But how will we go?" 
"Probably through windows." 
It was biology class, the boring subject ever and the professor is the scariest person ever. We sat in the last row near windows. There are nearly 100 students in the class. So the chance of a successful escape was possible. We became ready to jump through the window. When the professor turned to write something on the board, without any delay, we got out of the class. I was glad that nobody noticed, probably because everybody were busy in sleeping. The second problem was the principle. The principle's cabin was near our class and it is the time for inspection. We were so lucky, he was standing in front of the next class door. Even though I had the 'Escape Master' with me, I was really scared thinking that we will get caught for sure. She took my hand and kept her finger on her mouth and said : "Be silent and just follow me". We slowly started to move. After waiting for two minutes, the principle left. We silently ran to the entrance. The third problem was the watchman. 
"How will we pass the entrance?" I asked her with a sigh.
She looked around for a minute and then she pointed to the wall and said " Let's jump the walls." I was speechless for a second. That's the only thing I never did after meeting her. Without giving another thought, we jumped off the walls. And then we headed straight to the fest. It was full of fun, delicious foods, exciting rides and much more. We really enjoyed the day, forgetting everything.
We were friends since high school but we were different like day and night. She is the most naughtier, fearless and courageous girl that most of us have ever seen. She changes strangers into friends. She has got a talent in socialising with people. She spread a light of happiness around her. And there is me, quite, gloomy, shy and scared. I was never good in socialising until I met her. She was a beam of light in my dark life. I made new friends, good memories and a happy school life. Even though we were best friends, she has never shared anything about her family and her life. But I said everything about my past life and she often came to my house.
It was summer holidays. One day, she appeared in front of my doors out of the blue. She had brought a large teddy bear and a gift with her. Today is neither my birthday nor any special occation. She hugged me tightly soon after I opened the door and said "Sorry and Thank you".
"For what?" I asked curiously. I was really clueless and confused. Her behaviour was different than usual.
"I felt like it." She replied. 
"Then, In friendship there is no sorry no thank you." We both smiled. Out of curiosity, I began to unwrap the gift but she stopped me suddenly.
"Not now. Unwrap it after I leave." I agreed.
We ran upstairs to my room. We played and played till twilight. Before leaving, my mom invited her for dinner but she refused. A car was already waiting for her outside. She again hugged me tightly and I think, that she cried. I waved her till her car disappeared. 
Before going to bed, I took the teddy and  gift. I unwrapped it. It was an album with a letter. The album contained many memories of us. She made the album with many photos, writing and captions. It was colourful and beautiful. I took the letter and opened it. While reading the letter, tears burst out of my eyes. It told me :
"  Dear Jen,
I'm so sorry for telling you this through a letter. I don't have the courage to tell you this face to face. I'm leaving this country forever. The flight is tomorrow morning. Please don't come. I never told you anything about my life or my family. My parents divorced 2 years ago. We lived in America. After the divorce, me and mom migrated to Paris. From Paris, I got a best friend,  who is quiet and a complete opposite of me. I have mom and dad, but they never cared about me. They were busy in their lives. I never saw my dad after the divorce. I was always jealous of your family and you. You have a caring and loving parents. I was empty inside, you filled the hole in me. My dad died two weeks ago. He is a billionaire and I'm the only successor he had. So we are migrating to America. Thanks for making my life happy. The album contains many memories of us. It's a treasure for me. And the teddy bear will be a reminder of me. I just need one thing from you. No matter how many years passed, please don't give my position to anybody else. We will always be BFF. Once again, Sorry and Thank you for everything.
With Love
Kate "
It's been 10 years since she left. I never saw her ever again. We are distant by place but not by heart. I remembered her every moment and the pain I felt. She taught me a lot of things and she gave me a lot of strength and courage. She went with all my happiness. I was the one who should thank her. I never made any friends since then. But she will always remain as my friend...My best friend....
