"I haven’t spoken to my best friend in months, aside for him to abuse me with childish taunts that border on unnecessarily cruel. I’ve fucked up in a million ways, cut him in more ways than I’d have liked to—and he’s done the same to me. Yet I miss him immensely. I want to know if he’s doing OK. I want to know what’s up? I want to know if we can find a way to erase the past year, because none of it—not one second of that goddamned bullshit—was worth losing my best friend over."
