Continue the story.

From the moment I saw her I knew we would be friends. She was the tallest girl in my class. It was the first school day and I was really excited. I was sitting on my desk and watching her. She was smiling and her white teeth were shining like diamonds. Her blue eyes were like the bright September sky. She was wearing an yellow hat on her thick brown hair. Her clothes were very nice. She was a wearing black striped skirt and an orange T-shirt with flowers.

When I said ‘Hello’ I understood that she was a very kind person. We started to talk about different things and we sat on next door desks. This was the beginning of our friendship. Now we’re best friends and we love spending our free time together. We really enjoy going for a walk in the nearest park, or having a party in her house. We love rollerblading in hot summer evenings, or going to the local swimming pool. We’re all the time together.

All my life I had been looking for a best friend, and now I’m really happy because I found her!
