Friendship is a very important thing in people’s lives. It is so nice to have a person you can rely on. Close friends usually have similar ideas and beliefs. They understand, respect and trust each other. Your best friend always helps you when you have problems or troubles. As the English proverb says: « A friend in need is a friend indeed». I fully agree with it.
As for me, I can’t say I have many friends, though I’m rather sociable and communicative and easy going. The fact is, I have many acquaintances, but the most of them can’t be called friends. I think it’s normal. Friends can’t be many (I mean real friends). So, I have some friends. They make my life more interesting and enjoyable.
Now I would like to tell you about my best friend. Her name is Helen. We made friends five years ago. We are not of the same age. She is two years younger then I. She is not of age yet. She is only sixteen. I think she looks her age. Helen is a pupil of the tenth form.
Now some words about Helen’s appearance. She is neither tall nor short. I would say, she is of average height. Helen is fond of dancing. That’s why she has a nice figure. She is slim and stylish. Besides, she has a nice gait and holds herself upright. She never stoops. She looks after her body and figure. If only she puts on some weight, she goes on a diet at once. What a strong will she has! I envy her, to tell the truth.
It’s common knowledge, that the face is the index of mind. As for Helen, she has rather small features, a snub nose and a fair complexion. Her face is round and her small hazel eyes are deeply-set. Her eyebrows are bushy, but beautifully shaped. Her lashes are long. Helen has thin lips and a small chin. The peculiar thing about her face is that she has freckles. She always worries about it. But I think, they don’t spoil her. Helen is a great fusser and exaggerates everything. Besides, there’s one more thing that makes her charming and pretty. I mean her dimples on her cheeks.
One more peculiarity about Helen’s appearance. You see, she always pays much attention to her hair. That’s why she always has her hair done. She wears her hair shoulder length. She has a fringe and parts her hair sometimes on the right or on the left and sometimes in the middle. As for its colour, it’s really difficult to say, because she changes it very often. Helen doesn’t like to be the same.
Helen uses make-up. It makes her even more pleasant-looking. I always say to her that she is as pretty as a picture. You see, her mother is a very attractive woman. And Helen is the living image of her mother. They are as like as two pears.
The English proverb says: “Appearances are deceptive.” I disagree with it, because in the case with my friend Helen, for example, this proverb doesn’t work. Helen has a brilliant appearance and a fine character.
Helen is an active and energetic person. She can’t bear just sitting and doing nothing. It makes her impatient and restless. She always knows, what she wants. Besides, Helen is hard-working, organized and does well at school. She is very honest, just and kind. These are her strong points. I trust her a lot and I’m sure that I can rely on her in any situation. She never lets people down. This is the main advantage of her character.
But as any person Helen has not only advantages, but disadvantages as well. The main drawback of her character is that she is stubborn sometimes. The fact is, she was born under the zodiac sign of the Scorpion. It explains much in her character.
According to the horoscope, Helen is a very energetic person. That’s why she has a wide range of interests. As I’ve already mentioned, she is fond of dancing. Besides, she is interested in music. That’s why whenever she has an opportunity she visits concerts of her favourite singers. Helen is fond of sports. Sometimes I don’t understand how she manages to do all these things.
My best friend and I have much in common. We have the same interests, the same tastes, the same likes and dislikes and even hobbies.
We both like to wear jeans and sweaters. We hate skirts. Helen as well as I has a sweet tooth. We are fond of cakes, chocolates, sweets and so on and so forth. As for me, I am not an early riser. Helen is a good sleeper too. We both prefer pop-music. Our favourite season is summer. I like it because my birthday is in summer. As for Helen, she is crazy on the village, where her Granny lives, on the river, where she is ready to spend hours, on the forests, where she likes to gather berries and mushrooms. To make the long story short, everything I like she, enjoys too; everything she hates, irritates me as well.
Helen and I are very close friends. She is my twin soul. It’ s no wonder, that we spend much time together, help each other to do our homework, go to discos, walk in the park and so on. We like to spend our time going for a walk in the evenings, listening to music, watching video looking through fashion magazines. Sometimes we go to the cinema walk around the centre of our town, visiting small cafes or shops. We can talk for hours about all sorts of things: politics, love, boys, teachers and school. We discuss everyday problems, films, television programmes, books and what not.
As for our relations, I must say we don’t quarrel with each other. Well, perhaps, it is not at all true. Certainly it’s not as good as all that. Sometimes we do quarrel. But it happens very, very seldom. And, if there is some misunderstanding between us we try to make peace as soon as possible, because both of us can’t live without each other. No wonder! It’s rather difficult to live without a person, whom you can trust, whom you can rely on, who respects you.
Unfortunately, we are far from each other now. You see, I live in another city now, because I have entered a University this year. So we don’t see each other very often. Of course, we write letters to each other, but in spite of it I miss Helen very much. Without her I feel lonely. As I’ve said, Helen is a very cheerful, talkative and energetic person. Now, being far from her, I miss her jokes, her stories and energy. She is just like my sister. She knows everything about me and she is always ready to help.
I’m sure Helen and I are friends forever. Nothing and nobody can destroy our friendship.
