We became fans of celebrities or idols. But maybe I am the first person who became a fan of her classmate. Let's call her Azi.

Azi was good at everything. From study to sports. But she was mostly interested in literature. Like reading books and poems or mostly writing poems. We know each other since kindergarten. But I never gained the courage to go to her and ask her to be friends. As she was a top student, not the top but at least one of them. It's not like that I was a bad student. I was just after her. But I always thought that I am NO match with her. But fate was always with me. We were in the same school and same class even in the same club. But we still were too far from each other.

It was the summer vacation of my elementary school. I heard about some rumours that time. So I decided to check if they were real. So the first one was the seven wonders of school. I with Satoshi, Shiro, Sou, Kumiko and Yume went to the school at midnight. We decided to take a tour of the whole school.

Satoshi was such a coward and Kumiko forced him to go to the toilet stall. And he ran away from the window. When we entered the laboratory, Shiro played a prank and left me and Yume locked in that room. After getting scolded by Yume she left. Sou and Kumiko left after taking a full tour of the school. Yume went home after taking the second tour. Then it came to my mind that we didn't check the piano. So I went to the music room. I heard there someone was reading out a poem.

"We met at the dark night where stars were shiny'

'Roses bloomed fully and moon smiled beautifully'

'We met in the darkness and became friends'

It was a nice poem. But it was not the poem but it was the ghost. I gained all my courage and tried to run away.

"Wait, come here." Suddenly the ghost ordered me. I entered the room. The ghost talked to me the whole night. She asked me to be her friend. She said that she wanted to be my friend since kindergarten. It was weird for a ghost to befriend with a human.

When the sun showed her beautiful light I was surprised to see Azi there. She was the ghost I was talking to.

She explained that she came here to see me. She was worried that I would be left alone if all of them left. But she was being bored. So she wrote a poem and read it out.

Fate was waiting for that day. Azi transferred school the next day. But now we are more than best friends. We wear the same clothes and do the same things. We see each other the whole day except at school. We are like two bodies with one soul.

She told me a lot of her poems. All her poems. But the best one is the one she read that night. It was 'Being Friends In The Dark'.
