Have you ever lost a friend and not known what happened to them?
I moved from Las Vegas to SF in 2002 so I lost plenty of friends. But most of the ones I was close with I found on Facebook and what not. Some I have visited.
But there was this one girl in 1st grade that is still a mystery and it’s sad too. She and I became good friends. We hung out all the time, it was almost like Bridge to Terabithia, we had our little make-believe thing going on. We were friends for the whole year basically until the end of the year when a group of boys started making fun of me for being with a girl. I had never been made fun of at school before, it was upsetting and it made me cry. To remedy that, my 6-year-old mind decided to avoid her. She had invited me to her birthday party and she noticed that I was avoiding her and said something like “I guess you don’t want to come.” I never got a chance, though, because shortly after that she got meningitis and left the school and disappeared from my life. I never found out what happened to her, I never said goodbye. I’ll always regret that. I haven’t seen or heard of her since. That was 1998. I wonder if she still remembers me.
