My best friend became a mother
At August 8, 2013, a girl was born. She is my best friend’s first child. My friend’s name is Chiaki and we have shared many great memories since we were junior high school students 8 years ago, when we did anything together anytime. We often went to the beach after school and dove into the water with our cloth on and played like a crazy. One time, we didn’t go to school because we each caught a cold. It is a funny story now. One time I was absent a school for a few days because of poor physical condition. On the night of the third day, Chiaki came to my house with many snacks and folded-paper cranes in her hands. In Japan, giving a folded-paper crane is a simble for recovery. She always supported me with a lot of efforts at anytime. After graduating from junior high school, we went to different high schools. So we were not able to meet as much. One day, she called me and she said tearfully.. “I am a pregnant.” I was surprised at the moment and cried. It was a very happy time for me. I supported her pregnancy with all my effort just as she had done for me. She already had a mother’s face and not the innocent expression that I had known. Last summer, her baby was born. When I held her in my arms, many tears came and I felt unprecedented happiness.
