There was a time in my life when everything was just as crap as hell, and when everything was just all about horrible nightmares. The situation was so bad that I even contemplated taking my life, and sure, I came out stronger, but after that period, my life was never the same again.
But then, not all bad periods carry bad influences and events with it. If I did not even come to that place, I would never have had the chance to met this one hell of a guy, who’s my friend, mentor, and guide all at the same time.
His name is Ahmad Malik. When I first saw his face, I surely saw immediately that he’s not gonna be the trash that gave me headaches every single day.
“Care to have a chocolate bar?”
I gladly accepted his offer, and I started to ask his name, among other things. Within a few moments, I have earned myself a best friend.
Then he helped me grow both in heart and soul. He taught me certain things about our religion, and he also gave a good deal of advice on how to deal with certain things; how to deal with the people who try to mock me and bring me down, and how to deal with whatever future that I’m gonna have…
We spent a lot of time together, so much that people thought it was weird, but it did not matter. We simply did not care.
Until one day, he graduated from school, and I was left all alone. But I’m happy that he has come to my life.
We are still talking as of this day, laughing, even though I’m in Ankara and he is in Manila.
I will never forget that he came.
And I thank God for sending me a friend like him.
This is short, and there are more better stories out there: Weekly Prompt
The weekly prompt is about friendship, and I suggest you go out there (I am writing this while distracted and in a half-assed state of mind!)
Still, thanks for sailing! Good luck!
