Aiden has a friend. Not just a classmate cause that's plain cheating. Classmates don't have a choice but to be with classmates every single day. But this is a real neighborhood friend. They hang at each others' places. They run around the park together. They looks for each other. They do toy swaps, or at least Aiden does. This guy has always been a lone ranger, a total one-man show. Having a friend has pretty much been unconquered territory for this earthling.
For the first time in 3 and a half years the little devil isn't bugging me all day. While I savor how glorious life is, I'm left with the bitter taste of having lost something that will never be found again.
