Jenny continued. “Back then, you were like anjelegant swan in my eyes. Everyone in the class, boys and girls alike, adored you. I used to wish if only I could have even a tiny bit of your charm.”
Something seemed to strike Jenny. Those three years in middle school were the happiest time of my life Because of you, Agnes, I felt I wasn’t just some ordinary bird. To be friends with someone as dazzling as you made me feel like I could shine too.”
Agnes responded, “But you didn’t truly see me as a friend”
Jenny countered, “No, I really did consider you my best friend. Remember the wish box we buried under the third tree? Want to take a look?”
Of course, Agnes remembered.
Back at middle school graduation, it was popular to bury wish boxes, mostly between couples.
But Agnes secretly bought one, made a wish with Jenny, put it in the box, and buried it under the third tree outside the playground. They promised to dig it up together in ten years. Jenny found the tree and dug up the wish box, which was rusted.
Agnes felt like her heart was being tortured. Those innocent and beautiful years she seemed to flash before her eyes.
Jenny had already opened the box. Inside were two intact notes.
Jenny first read the one from Agnes: I hope to travel and eat around the world with Jenny, to be best friends forever. Jenny looked at the note and smiled slightly, “Agnes, I’m touched you wrote this.”
Agnes stepped forward to take the note, “I was just naive back then.”
Jenny handed the other note, “Want to see what I wrote back then?”
In the end, Agnes couldn’t resist and took a look.
It read: I hope my best friend Agnes will always be happy and joyful.
Something struck Agnes‘ heart. Tears welled up in her eyes, ready to fall, a sour feeling in her heart.
The handwriting was beautiful, and a heart was drawn in the bottom right corner of the note;
Agnes suddenly felt a profound sadness.
Agnes asked the person in front of her, “Why, why did everything change?”
She couldn’t understand why the innocent Jenny of the past was now competing against her, framing her, scheming against her. When did their friendship become so broken?
Jenny stood up and said, “Because of Elton. Come with me.”
Agnes followed Jenny, not knowing where she was leading.
Finally, Jenny took Agnes to the basketball stands on the playground.
step by step, they climbed to the top.
This was the best spot on the basketball stands, providing a clear view of every corner of the playground.
1the past, Agnes always brought Jenny here to watch Elton’s football games.
ack when they were still in middle school, Elton was attending a nearby high school, but he always liked to come here after school to play football with a bunch of friends..
f course, it was because of Agnes.
ack then, Agnes was treated like a princess by Elton.
fter every football game Elton played, Agnes would go down to bring him water, all his friends knew Agnes, and Elton openly called her “my girlfriend“.
ney would laugh and play on the playing field while Jenny watched from the basketball stands from a distance.
