A Friend in need is a Friend Indeed The last minutes of the last lesson of the last day were ticking away; everybody couldn't wait to be set free. However I was quivering inside, I began to feel petrified; my legs began to shake. Horrible thoughts rushed through my head, and I felt a sudden sting in my arm. I gently rolled up my sleeve and looked at my graze, which had been blanketed with an even layer of antibiotic cream. I pressed my arm anticipating that the pain would fade, but it just resulted with more agony. My eyes began to water, I tried to hold my tears back, but the pain was so intense. " Chris, Are you ok dear?" asked Mrs Field. She crouched down at the side of my desk. " Is it your arm, would you like to go to the nurse?" inquired Mrs Field. " Oh no is the poor little cry-baby crying again," remarked Jacob sarcastically. The whole class echoed with laughter. " That's enough Jacob, I've had enough of your immature comments go..." the electric bell interrupted Mrs Field and rang around the whole school, vibrating in everybody's ears. There was a mad rush for everyone to collect their belongings and escape as if there was some emergency. Each member of the class raced passed me; I felt neglected and lonely as I slowly packed my books into my old leather briefcase.
Why not now? I forgot to tell you about my only best friend, the only reason why I still had some spirit were because of Tony. He meant the world to me. Through all my hard times he was there at my side to support me and push me through school life. At the moment he had gone to Rome with his dad but he was coming back tomorrow. I was delighted it meant I finally had someone to break the ice and bring some sunshine back to my life. Tony was new last year and I was appointed to be his buddy. Straight away we became very friendly and we have been best friends since. We have never fallen out with each other and he is the only one I can really trust, I can trust him even more than my parents. I never had any brothers or sisters so Tony had become like a brother to me. We spend all our time together. He also knows my situation at school and he felt a bit reluctant to go on holiday leaving me behind but he often persuades me to face Jacob. I can hear his voice " Chris bullies will stay bullies, unless you do something about it." I smile to myself, he will be at school tomorrow and all my fears will go away. " Hey Chris, how are you!" exclaimed Tony as he stood outside my classroom.
" Hi are you ok?" I asked. " Never felt better I'm glad I was able to face him even though he gave me a black eye!" exclaimed Tony. "I couldn't believe you stood up for me, you have a lot of courage," I replied. " Well I was asking for it wasn't I, it's not everyday you go up to a boy whose three times bigger than you and tell them that they're a wimp," Tony said laughing. " Yeah I'm surprised you could face that big bully." I said. " Not Bully Chris, don't you realise all these Bully's are wimps just because they get a little support from their friends they think they have become powerful but really they're not." Tony replied. " You're a really good friend Tony how am I ever going to make up for it, I owe you my life!" I exclaimed. " More than your life, only joking all I want you to promise me is that if I am ever in trouble you will be there for me like I was there for you and always will be," said Tony. " Why are you asking, I will always be there for you, that's what a friend is for to help you through your difficult times and always give you a helping hand," I answered, " It's like that saying isn't it Chris that Mrs Field told us in English." " You were actually paying attention." I said jokingly. " Yeah what was it, A Friend in need is a Friend indeed.
