    Childhood Friends: Part One

    You, [insert name here], just finished first grade and are excited for summer to start. While sitting on the front porch eating a popsicle, you see a big van driving up the street. It's the new family moving in across the street. You see a little boy looking pretty depressed sitting on his own front porch, trying not to get in the way. You go over and introduce yourself and hand over the popsicle you brought over to make him feel better. You spend the entire summer together, and he is even in your second grade class! You become absolutely inseparable from then on.

    What's his name?

    You grow up together, although you never look at each other in a romantic way. Graduation is coming up, and you've both decided to go to [insert college/university]. He wants to major in [subject] and you choose [subject].

    You enjoy freshman year together, going to parties and football games, but also meeting new people and spending some time apart. Then, in sophomore year, he meets [name], and you instantly dislike her. You can't put your finger on it, but you try, in vain, to make him see that she's no good for him. She continues to drive a wedge between you, and by second semester, you're barely talking. Then he calls you frantic one night, early in junior year. [HIS GF] is pregnant! You tell him that he needs to be there for her, knowing that this means you'll likely never see him again, and it breaks your heart. And although you realize it that night on the phone, you don't tell him that you think you've fallen in love with him. He stays with [her name] and sends you the occasional update on the baby, and invites you to the baby shower.

    Two weeks after the baby is born, he calls you and begs you to come over. He sounds really upset, so you rush over there. When you walk in, he's pacing back and forth with the baby, who's screaming his lungs out. He tells you he can't get him to stop crying, so you offer to rock him for a while. He quiets down after a few minutes, and falls asleep in your arms. After you put him down in his crib, you walk back to the kitchen, where [his name] is sobbing at the kitchen table. He tells you that [her name] left in the middle of the night, and left a note, saying she just wasn't cut out to be a mother, and she didn't want to ever hear from either of them again. He's crushed, and as much as you want to say I told you so, you hold back. You tell him that you'll move in for the rest of the semester and help him with the baby.

    What's the baby boy's name?
    First name: http://nameberry.com/list/380/Boys-Names-Moving-Up-Fast
    Middle is your choice.

    You decide to stay with [BFF's name] in his apartment for both of your senior years as well, since [baby boy] has already had plenty of change in his life, and needs as much stability as possible. You both work out your schedules so someone is always with the baby. You drive back home for Thanksgiving together, and both of your families eat at his parents' house. After enjoying a game of touch football in the backyard, you go inside to watch TV. His parents are totally preoccupied with the baby and you both have a couple glasses of wine to relax. And after you put [baby] down for the night, you finish off the bottle after everyone has gone to bed. [BFF] starts opening up about how he never could have made it without you, and that he'll never be able to repay you, and he lets slip that he thinks he loves you. And that's all it takes. You confess your long swept under the rug feelings, and you're officially a couple from then on.

    On the night of your graduation, he proposes. What does the engagement ring look like?

    "Close friends are truly life's treasures. Sometimes they know us better
    than we know ourselves. With gentle honesty, they are there to guide and support us,
    to share our laughter and our tears. Their presence reminds us that we are never really alone."
    - Vincent van Gogh
