A True Friend What is the meaning of a true friend? A true friend is someone who comforts you when in need, cries with you in sorrows and laughs with you when you do something stupid. I believe my brother, Keating, is a prime example off “true friend”. When I was little, Keating brought home a very sweet girl. To our knowledge, Amber came from a very wealthy and well-respected family. After four months, Amber continued to come over; I knew this relationship was getting serious. I overheard my mom on the phone one day. “Keating can go with her! ” Not hearing the response, I kept listening.
I heard my mother say, “Amber needs him there for her now more than ever. Skipping school for a day does not compare to the pain she is going through. ” At that point, I had no clue what was going on, but what I did know was that something was seriously wrong. Amber came over the next night and everything seemed normal. I heard her and Keating talk about how she had a doctor’s appointment. Keating assured her that he would be right by her side through it all, and she was going to be Just fine. The next morning, Keating and Amber went to the actor.
The nurse explained that the phlebotomy’s would be there shortly to do blood work. When the doctor came in, he explained, “Ms. Shell, I am afraid there were some complications with the blood work. We are going to have to have to run a few tests. ” “Thank you, Dry. Heck. Maybe you can find the problem. I have not felt well lately. ” Keating invited Amber for supper a few nights later. We were sitting at the dinner table and Amber explained to the family about her doctor’s visit. I then told her, “Amber, you know if you ever need me, I am here for you.
I can go o the doctor with you if you would like me to. ” “Thanks, Halley. You are the best! ” Two weeks had passed and it was getting closer to time for Amber’s next doctor’s visit. The phone rang, it was for me; it was Amber saying, “Keating has soccer practice today. Wicked you like to go with me to the doctor? ” “l would love to! I’ll be right over. ” Then we got to the doctor’s office and Amber was a bundle of nerves. When the doctor came in, he welcomed us and said, “Hello, ladies. I have some good news and some bad news. Bad news first: There are a few tumors on your brain.
They are mall, but there are few I am concerned about. The good news is they are treatable, but you will have to come to the hospital for chemotherapy and radiation. ” Almost in tears, Amber decided to go ahead and schedule her first treatment. Her first and only thought was Keating. “What will his reaction be? Will he love me through this? Will he still think I am pretty if I lose my hair? ” We arrived at home; I saw Keating standing in the doorway waiting to pull Amber into his arms. “Everything will be fine, baby. I promise! ” Three months went by. Keating and Amber’s senior prom was only weeks away.
Through all of the chaos, Amber forgot all about it. Keating had everything planned out; he had the dress ready, and the limo and flowers ordered. More was terrible auto going to prom Decease seen Ana lost all AT near anal. Al did she know, when Keating knocked on her door to pick her up, his hair would be gone. “Keating, thank you so much. You are not only the greatest boyfriend anyone could ask for, but you are also the greatest friend! ” Sacrificing only a little part of himself, Keating changed Amber’s life forever. I believe that my brother, Keating, is the best example of a “true friend”.
