“ My name is Comfort, so I am going to make everybody comfortable.” She declares proudly.
“Well, my name is Loli, so I am going to make everybody’s life a misery,” I replied sarcastically, “haha.”
I met her on January, school had started in September, but she was transferred from another school.
That time, I had only made friends with a few people, Sky, Puppy Print and Kat. It was not far from the beginning of school, so I had a bright hope for the years after in X Secondary school.
She had a bright hope too, to make new friends, and to do what her name is, to comfort others.
At first, I do not understand her idea, I had thought, she was definitely going to fail.
Later on, we became friends, maybe because, she did console everyone nearby, given warmth to others.
I had never deeply believed in friends, from the day I went to school, had always thought they would barely come and pass. Neither did I think she or anyone else would stay as a memory.
Nevertheless, on sports day in year 8, the weather was freezing cold, I merely had the uniform on, so she kindly shared her coat. I was too dumbed by the frost to think, simply thanked. However,
when I arrived home, my mum was astonished to hear this news, “Comfort seems really nice.” She exclaimed, though I only thought ‘that’s what good friends do. No big deal.’ Then I was surprised at
the idea; gradually, I had listed her as my close friend; probably I was still dumbed by the cold, or Comfort’s warmth had touched me.
Our friendship is three years old now, along with Sky, Puppy Print and Kat’s. And still you see her, with soft cheeks and black hair band tying all her brown extensions, just like in year 7, and
giving people comfort.
Thank you Comfort, for inspiring me by the positive way you have, and that changes my mind, even when I get upset, I try to squash a smile on my face;the world is a lovely place.
