Twenty-four years. A lifelong friendship that naturally became a love affair. No guy nor girl was good enough for the other, and they finally embraced their surpressed feelings.
Twenty-four years. They grew up together. Lived next door all their lives and went to the same schools. Ran with the same group of friends and had the same enemies.
Twenty-four years of ups, downs, and in betweens. She's always been there for her, and the favor was always returned. There was never a lack of support.
Twenty-four years. Tonight she's going to bed knowing that when she wakes up, she'll be alone for the first time.
