It was a small town. Everybody knew them. The two troublemakers, or two peas in a pod. They were best friends. Always had been.
Eli and Lana. The two grew up as neighbors and their parents often teased as the aged, that the two would end up married one day. They would scrunch their nose in disgust and deny that there was any possibility of that.
At age 16 the duo reached one level more intimate than they ever believed they would achieve. They had kissed.
It wasn’t too long after that, that the pair had begun to date. Where some may have been afraid to lose someone they had come to be close to, the two embraced their feelings.
The two stayed strong and study through their years, and through tough times they still stuck together.
It wasn’t until after college that the two were ready for the next step in their lives. Marriage. Eli proposed at their spot in the small town where they first kissed.
And the best friends realized that the love they had, was a friendly kind of love, and a forever one as well.
