How did I get lucky enough to have these two amazing, true friends?

"Guess who I saw at the park yesterday." Will said as Halle and I sat down in Algebra.

"Who?" I asked.


"Oh... um, well..." I looked at the ground, tensing up.

"Why would you mention him to her? You know better!" Halle almost screamed as she said it, fast and angry.

"Because he was with her." Will said defensively.

"And?" I asked, looking up with tears in my eyes.

"Noah was with me, and we started yelling, 'Downgrade! Downgrade! You dropped Suzonne for that? You idiot! She's nothing compared to Suzonne!'"

"Will..." I whispered, tears streaming down my eyes. 

I hugged him, him hugging me back.

"Hey, what's wrong?" Will asked as I sat down.

"I don't know. I'm just tired... I just want to be happy."

Halle hugged me, and Will sat there thinking.

"You know, you're absolutely amazing. You're smart and pretty." Halle smiled with a hint of laughter.

"Tigger Nitty." Will laughed, looking at a loser who had just walked in.

I slapped Will on the leg, laughing at his "clever" word play. Tigger nitty is nigger titty, just with the first letters switched. He jerked back, grabbing his leg like he'd been shot. I stuck my tongue out at him, laughing as he swung at me. He hit my upper arm just as Halle hit him in the side. I lunged at him, but he grabbed my hands in his as Halle doubled over from laughing. He bit my right arm in two different places while I squealed my head off. Being bitten, he knows, is one of my turn ons, the jerk. 

"Okie, Will, you win." I say, breathless.

I had forgotten about my earlier sadness.

How did I get so lucky?

A really nice story Suzonne with such a lovely sentiment. It seems as though your two friends really do look out for you and that you all seem to look out for each other actually. You all seem to be able to have a laugh and a joke with each other, which is really nice and that's all part of friendship. I think that when your friend was on about how he shouted "Downgrade! Downgrade! You dropped Suzonne for that? You idiot! She's nothing compared to Suzonne!" They seem to really look out for you and it seems as though they couldn't even believe that your ex went with someone else, rather than with you. I think it's really sweet that they think of you in such a lovely way. It seems as though they are friends who would stick up for you no matter what Suzonne. I thought that it was lovely of your friend Halle to give you a hug when you were upset and to tell you that you were 'Amazing and that you were smart and pretty.' It must feel really nice to have your spirits lifted up by such kind and considerate words. :) The part that I really liked was when you said "I had forgotten about my earlier sadness." I loved the fact that your friends were there to comfort you and to just be there for you and they made you much happier than you were earlier on during that day. I love the pictures too Suzonne, especially of the second one where you're smiling and you're with your friends. I think it's really nice that you're happy when you're with them and that they make you happy and help you to forget about any feelings of sadness. It's certainly a rare thing nowadays Suzonne, to actually find friends who are genuine and who are there for you, rather than just for some sort of gain for themselves. I think that it's great you have two cool friends, who you know you can always trust and rely upon. :) As always Suzonne, another fine piece that you've created with such a lovely sentiment. :) Your work never ceases to amaze Suzonne! :)

Thank you! I love those two so much!! I don't know what I would do without them! I left so many people in 2015, but they made it to the new year with me, so maybe it's meant to be!
