That night I went home and I decided to tell Mary and Debbie because I saw Billy’s breakup as an opportunity to tell him how I felt, but I needed the guidance of my friends. Surprisingly both Mary and Debbie were not shocked at my confession and they supported me telling him how I felt. With their support, my weird feelings turned into excitement and I couldn’t wait to talk to Billy. I told Mary and Debbie to walk to school without us the next day because I needed time to talk with Billy. I was up all night rehearsing what I was going to say to him. I could not wait until the morning to confess my feelings to Billy. The next morning Billy and I met up as usual in front of my house. He asked, “Where are the girls”? I told him that Mary and Debbie had something to take care of so they left early for school. About five minutes into our walk I began explaining my feelings to Billy and to my surprise Billy said he had been feeling the same way for a while but was too afraid of losing my friendship to tell me. 2

I couldn’t believe my ears! I was excited to know that it wasn’t just me. By the time Billy and I arrived to school we were holding hands as a symbol that we were now officially boyfriend and girlfriend. Billy and I became the hottest couple in school and Mary and Debbie were so happy for us. Our strong friendship made our relationship even stronger and everyone thought that we would get married one day. In my heart I knew that one day I would marry my high school sweetheart. Billy and I seemed inseparable during high school, but Billy graduated before I did and things soon began to change. We promised each other that we would not let Billy being in college change our relationship, but unfortunately that was only wishful thinking. By Billy’s second year in college our relationship began to dwindle due to all of the pressure that Billy was dealing with in college. Mary, Debbie and I also had a lot going on preparing for college, so we all slowly drifted into our own worlds. We all tried to hold on to our friendship but the responsibilities of life started to quickly change things. We went from being inseparable to distant in a matter of a few years. I missed my friends. Life went on but I would often think of Billy. I was accepted to UCLA and graduated with honors. I got a job immediately after graduation at Beverly Hills Medical Center as an Attending in Pediatrics. My career was fulfilling and I had finally created a name for myself. After my breakup with Billy, I shifted my focus towards being the best in my career, but there was an apparent void in my life that I filled with late hours at the hospital caring for my patients.
