Everybody needs friends. Why? Everybody needs friends.
Why? She asked.
Because we need them, he answered.
Why do we need them? She asked.
Because they make us happy.
They make you laugh; they make you cry.
They make you feel all the emotions one needs to feel whole in this life.
How many friends do we need? She asked.
As much as we can handle, he answered.
Sometimes you have a friend who is a good listener, a friend to have fun with .
Then there are the friends you can always count on when times get really bad. Mostly those are the quiet ones.
