So many years later, right before sleep, I thought of you. It was a memory from the time you pretended to be a drowning victim during my lifeguard test. You were drowning me instead, and the only way to stop you was to reach out and pinch you. You screamed then laughed so hard You stopped the test, but I passed. That year we had such great talks. I can still see that huge grin with you small vampire teeth. Your kind an encouraging way you supported me when I felt alone. I still miss you as my friend.
