She was the first classmate i met on the first school day. To be honest, I didn’t like her because she was too sensitive to the cleanness of her desk. Otherwise, I was not good at socializing, maybe keeping quiet was the best way for me.
I never thought that we could be such close friends. Ond day, everything began as usual, but we would have physics lab.For me, almost everything a first tine in high school. I was a little bit panic about that.Not only because the lab was difficult,but also I needed a partner! I didn’t talk a lot in my class.I was just like invisible person. I told myself, I could do that without anyone.This lab was about Free Fall. Every group had at least two people that could finish. I stand here and felt so helpness. Suddently, I found she had two partners.It is unfair. Why such a mean girl could have two partners? My hear was so hurt like somebody hitting it.She seemed to realize what I thought and came to me. I could feel that my face turned red. Maybe a big fight would start.”Can I be your partner? If you wanted.”she said. I was so shocked that I didn’t know how to answer and stand here like a wire pole.”Can I be your partner?”she asked again. I nodded.”My name is Zhang Mei, you can call me May, my english name. You know, it’s very popular to have an english name.”she said.”Really? I don’t know that.” I answered in a very low voice.”Anyway, let’s finish this lab. I did this kind of lab when I had out school class. So those guys want to be my partner.”She was so talkative and active. I really misunderstood her personality. Absolutely, we got very high scores in that lab.
After this lab, we became very close friends. May told me the reason she liked hang out with me it was quiet. She could talk all the time and I just listened. I told her that I didn’t like her at the first time. She said she knew that. So she wanted to fix it. A friend is always better than an enemy. Until now, Free Fall was the deepest memory in my heart.

My High School Friend Agnes
Agnes is one of my best friends in high school. I still remember the first day we met at school. Her optimism impressed and affected me so much.
The first day in school, it rained heavily. So, after lunch, I stayed at classroom finding something to do. At this time, Agnes came in alone. In my hometown, asking others whether they had lunch or not is polite. I asked her, and then she said she had already eaten lunch alone. “If I ate lunch alone, I would feel lonely.” I said. But her words reminded me of my lunch experience, eating with a classmate who kept talking and talking when I was eating was more tolerated than eating alone. She said: “Eating alone is better than eating with someone you don’t like.” We said maybe we could have lunch together tomorrow. In fact, the time we had lunch together for almost 3 years.
You would think she didn’t study hard because she took it easy in all tests or exams. Even she messed up in her exams; she still believed she could do it better in the future. I would become nervous when I was waiting for my score. She seemed not to care about the mark so others would consider she didn’t take it seriously. As a matter of fact, we always studied together at weekends. She comforted me when I got low mark. She said: “Why you waste your time feeling upset on the thing which has already passed away. Keep moving on, you can do nothing about the past but you still handle your future.”
Everyone thought she enjoyed having fun all the time. Because she knew where she had delicious food to eat and where she had interesting entertainment to play. But I know she wasn’t only focusing her mind on those things. Her mum complained her father always played cards with his friends and smoked when he was playing cards. She understood her father did this for business and had no choice. So, she wrote a 4-full-page letter to her father. She tried her best to help her mum and her father to solve this problem. Her consideration also impressed me.
Now, she is in Sydney and I am in Los Angeles. We struggle for our life in different places. We still encouraged each other as usual; even we are in different places.
Do you have a friend who you could count on? Someone who will be there to share your sadness, happiness, or even when you’re bored? My high school friend Danny is one of such people. We’ve known each other since we were in middle school. We hung out together and shared many blissful moments together. I sometimes feel like he is my long lost brother.
Since 9th grade, we’ve always been together. We ate lunch together at school, played video games, and went out to see movies together. Even though we didn’t have classes together, we did talk about them at lunch. We would talk about how our classes were fun, exciting, or boring. We would go on and on until the bell rang. So, the most fun times I’ve had are hanging out with Danny at lunch time in high school. And when people ask “Were there times when you guys fight?” I would answer “No”, because the times we spent together the most are at school, discussing how our classes went. So, the reason we didn’t fight is because the time we spent the most were in school. Though we did chat when we are playing games. Even then, we never fought. Maybe it’s because we were always on the same team. Thus, out of all my friends in high school, Danny is the one that I would consider the best friend. Maybe that’s why people always mistook us for brothers.
In conclusion, no one is ever alone. There will always be someone who you would consider a friend that you can trust. Someone who will walk with you through the sad time and happy time. When you find that person, he/she will be a friend of a life time.
