I walked away, tears streaming down my face. I look back one last time and see my expression mirrored back on my closest friends faces. I wave one last time and leave the school, moving on to the next chapter of my life.

...

I walked away, feeling happy and confused, meeting up with my friends again. I look back and see some waving, while others had already started talking between them. I wave back one last time and walk away, continuing my story

...

I check my phone for texts, wondering why I wasn't invited to the hangout. I hadn't gotten a text in a couple of months and I was wondering what happened. I wiped away a tear and texted my new friends, wishing it didn't have to end this way.

Just a little story about how I feel friendships and relationships drift away with no communication. If you want to stay in touch, you have to work for it and I find it sad how many friends are separated because they weren't bothered to pick up their phone one more time to call their friends in the same country, just in a different school. Even long distances shouldn't cut off your love for each other, it should strengthen it.
