I never realised how much I loved Cali. I knew she was my best friend, I knew she was part of my life.
I can’t even explain it to myself. I never thought about marriage or girlfriend or anything like that with Cali.
I thought about talking to someone who understood me and gave me the right advice. I thought about someone being there.There never was a time in which we got romantic. Maybe it was that when we were kids we always stayed in the backyard or on the porch or in the T.V. room and often her sister or mother was there, and it never moved into boy/girl
Even when we were teenager, even after, we never were boy/girl.
She dated, I dated, we shared ‘war stories.’
I can’t recall a single time we were anywhere near a bed or romantic setting. Not a single time our eyes met as on T.V. and the music came up.
Now she is getting married.
