As we grew older…our interests changed. Elliott enjoyed sports and video games while I liked music and parties. We were both part of different cliques…he was considered a geek and I was considered a freak. But even though we were total opposites, we remained the best of friends. We rode the bus to school together and hung out as much as possible. We did our homework together and we went on double dates together. People would say that we were inseparable…and it was true. He was the only person I ever felt I could really confide in. He would listen to my crazy schemes or let me ramble on and on about whatever new band was hot at the time…and he’d just smile…he never judged me. High school was pretty rough on both of us but we found comfort in each other.
