In the time i had been in the school he and his friends had not said a word to me so i didn't worried for being friend of them. 1 year passed and i felt adapted to the situation, i was still not friend of those 4 guys but i didn't even talked to them, the only thing i knew about them was that they were good at soccer and they loved to see soccer matches live. ...read more.

I cried and begged to him to stay here when my dad agreed because he didn't needed so much money for a promotion he only needed me and him to be happy, no more.
