When I met Alex, we were twelve. We were not the most popular at school but we got through this. We were kind of special. 

Two years ago, High School cut our ways off and I felt really lost without him by my side. There was something missing. I knew that it was hard for him too. He became a lonely boy like thousands of others. But he had to be different. This is what made him special. So, since that day he played bad boy with punk attitude and people looke at him as if he were a freak.

The I almost fell in love. I said almost because it kind of scared me. Even if I would give my entire life to this person, it was not the way that people thought it was supposed to be. So I kept my feelings secrets. It was killing me. Actually it was like a dragon in my stomach, growing bigger and bigger, like love getting stronger and stronger until it explodes. I needed to talk to someone. Someone like Alex, my Alex, before High School.

So one day I came to see him during break. When I said hello I saw on his face this white smile he had had the firts time we had met. A guy said to me : "Hey, you don't have to give him your pity, girl !"

We just let him go.

The I told Alex my story. Our connection was absolutly perfect. He knew how I felt, in love, without any idea about how to deal with it. He just said to me confidently : "Lena, you're an amazing girl. Don't let people change you, or decide who you have to be with. Because I'm pretty sure loving her is what makes you special." 

No matter what people said about Alex, I knew he was a true friend.
