“True friendship comes when the silence between two people is comfortable.”

I had absolutely no idea what to write about, but my brother just did something unbelievably kind which he didn’t have to do, but it has really changed my mood, and helped inspire me and this post.
He bought me an ice cream, which may not seem like such a big deal, but I imagine to him it did, as he spent his own money to do something for me. Usually he wouldn’t do this, because of being stubborn and having our differences, but then again what siblings don’t? So actually, it really shows that I was actually thought about for once.
Sorry Josh. It’s the truth.
It is things like this, the smaller gestures in life that really shows someone what matters, as well as who matters. You don’t have to spend so much money on them, as long as what you do for them, is specific to them, and manages to lift their spirits because you know it is something they will actually like, rather than doing something for the hell of it without thinking of the person.
I know some people who give absolutely nothing, but expect a lot in return, and that is not how life should be, or how your relationship with someone should be.
People shouldn’t give to receive, they should give to make others happy. This is something that should just come naturally, especially it it’s someone you claim to care for. At the same time however, you do want to be shown that you matter to them also. I am not talking about with material things, but time, and effort put into friendships. Is that too much to ask?
Little gestures make a big difference, and only those who truly love and care about you, will know what to do to make you happy, to make you smile, because you deserve it.

Today I hit 400 followers, so I just wanted to say a quick thank you for that. You are all AMAZING, and to properly celebrate, I thought I would share with you the first short story I am writing for this blog. I hope you like it. After all, it is for you. Fingers crossed.
We were there. The two of us. Just sitting, letting life pass us by, remaining silent, but the world around us was just as loud as ever. Sound coming from every corner, flooding into my ears.
I just wanted to be with you, savour the precious little moments we had left. It wasn’t too much to ask for, was it?
A shadow of doubt crosses my mind, wondering if after today, after this last moment leaves us, if you would forget me. I reach out to touch you, but remember that I can’t, not anymore. It is too late to get back what we once had. Everything we once were was already gone, and there is no way to get it back.
Gone. Just like me.
I know what happened that day broke you, tore you apart. Even now, after all of this time. I wish I could feel your pain, but that’s the problem, I can’t feel anything anymore. All I can do is sit here and know you have to move on. It’s probably time.
I watch you intently as you get up, the tears falling down your face as you look down one last time. I could have sworn you looked right at me, but how could you, when I am no longer here. I am just a spirit of the girl I used to be.
As you walk away, I fade away into the night, this time, it’s for good!
