A real friend will always help.
I used to have a friend who I used to get along well with during school. When we graduated from school, I wanted to keep learning. When I was six months before my high school graduation, she wrote me a letter or I would go to a party with her. The answer was "no" right away. And why? It's obvious. I chose to study for my baccalaureate and for the exam that was coming up then. What about my friend? She called me a rag, a whore, and the worst of it.
It's called a friend... Now she ended up a single mother with a child. And me? I got a new friend. That one from the heart. She'll always help me when I need her.
Remember, you can only count on real friends in this world.
