Day 09 : Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.

When I was a kid, my two best friends in the world were my cousin, Kelly, and my friend, Maria. Our parents were friends too, so the three of us were always together, whether it be because we initiated it or our parents did. We had thousands of sleepovers, and the three of us were a great match. We all loved ghost stories and haunted things, being hilarious and having fun. Kelly and Maria were really into horses, me and Maria were really into boys, and me and Kelly were really into reading. We all fit together. There was never the typical fights when a group of three girls are friends - we all just really loved being together and there was no drama. 

When we got to high school, we all went our separate ways. I started hanging out with new friends, Maria got a really serious boyfriend, and Kelly started hanging out with new girls. We all were still friends, but we weren't as close. I hung out with both of them at separate times, but our threesomes were over. 

After high school, Kelly moved to Colorado. I've only seen her like four times since then. Maria went to college and then got married. She has three kids now. Three years ago, we all went to our ten year high school reunion. Kelly was off being kinda crazy (she's a party girl now) but Maria and I talked for a long time, and even met up a few times after that with our other friend, Lori. But then Lori had a baby, and we stopped meeting. 

I love them both dearly and I know they are a phone call away if I need them. We all just grew up, went in different directions, and that's that.
