Extracts from this essay...
Close Friend Every human has their own needs and wants. Needs like food, home, clothes and so on are very significant for each and every human. Besides all those necessity, every human also needs to have a friend. Friends are one of most important things in our lives. I think these people are one of the best people in the world. Friends are people that you can rely on. Some name their friend as close friend. This happens when a particular friend, be concerned with you more like a family and vice-versa. You will get to know each other deeply. I have a lot of friends- girls and boys. But they are not my close friend. I can trust all of them though. They might be nice and friendly to me but they might not understand the real me. My close friend should be someone who knows every single thing about me, loving and is someone a part of me. Like everyone else, I also do have a friend; close friend. My close friend's name is Tina. There is nobody like her who had changed my life dramatically. I first met Tina at my uncle's wedding. I still remember she was dressed in a very astounding dress and was the center of attraction. I was very jealous of her back then. After having dinner, the dance floor was opened.
Final examination was around the corner. The both of us were very scared. Tina actually spent time with me to do revision for my exams instead of hers. As a result, we both did well in our final examination. I was so happy with my grades. As she sat for the Ujian Penilaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) examination, she obtained five A's. Tina is a very trustable and supportive person. I always know that I can rely on her. She would definitely help me out no matter what the problem is. When I was in Form 1, I lost my grandfather. I was really close to him and could not accept the fact that he's gone. She stood by my side, gave me support and brought me forward. She has been very loyal to me. I remember once all of my cousin's stopped talking to me just because I did not invite them to my birthday party, which we celebrated only among my family. They were so angry that they never spoke to me for one month. At that time, Tina was always telling me not to think about it as it's not my fault. I remember the words she told me, 'no matter what happens, remember that you always have me. I am always with you." I was touched by those words. She definitely changed my life.
My mother was also kind of surprised but she couldn't say anything, after all she's their daughter. After a week, she went back home. I still could not stop thinking what she said to me. I kept asking myself what does it means. Why did she say all that to me? She used to give her all to do or get something that I really want. She really loves me a lot and so do I. But we didn't have enough time to spend together. Her mother called after a month. Like how I lost my close member, my grandfather, I lost her too. She died in 30th September 2005. She died because of cancer. This is one thing that she never told me or maybe she did try to give me a hint but I did not understand. During the first semester school holiday in 2005, she went back home. She did not tell anyone of us here that she was suffering from breast cancer. Neither did her parents. She actually went back to do her treatment but it was too late then. I remember that she was very worried when she got back home. I asked her many times about it but she did not say anything. She never told me anything about her sickness. She left me all alone. I had no one to talk to. I will always remember every moment that I spent with her. My love for her will never die. My one and only close friend, Tina. ?? ?? ?? ??
