Prompt: Who was your first friend?
When I was 4 years old, my mother and I moved to a new neighborhood. There was a girl who was the same age as me named Kellie. We became friends right away and were inseparable pretty quickly. I remember always staying the night at her house or her staying at mine. I remember playing at her house every day until the street light came on (that was my signal that it was time to head home) and going to the drive in movies with our moms. Even though we were in the same grade in school, we were never in the same class, but we were still best friend until about 5th grade. We had some stupid female drama argument and the "I'm never talking to you again" actually stuck. When we got to high school, we would say, "hi" to each other, but we were never really friends after 5th grade. She got messed up with a lot of bad stuff as a teenager, had a kid at 16, was doing drugs and drinking a lot.
We lost contact for years until actually just a couple of years ago when I found her on Myspace and we started chatting and catching up. Her son is all grown up now. We did hang out at our class reunion, and tried to make plans to do it again but things always seemed to fall through. Supposed to be having a girls night in on the 28th and hopefully she will be able to make it. Kinda funny, after really not being friends since 5th grade, we still ended up having a lot of things in common.
She is the first friend that I really remember. Her, and there were a brother and sister that lived on the same street and we all played together as kids, but they ended up moving away.
