I tell the girls at work this story sometimes when it comes up and they always get a laugh and enjoy it. So I figured you anime fans that watch stuff like Fuuka would like this. I also want to know if anyone else has childhood friend stories.

In preschool my best friend was this girl. Don't know if this is the correct spelling since we were kids but it was a version of Kaleigh. Anyways, we would hang out mainly at preschool and when someone had a birthday party. I remember hers because we saw Pokemon 2000 and all got a pokemon card pack. Not sure if they were Promos or just a pack of cards. I pulled a chikorita (my faovirte pokemon) and gave it to her. There was like 10 of us kids and we sat next to each other and would whisper about pokemon while watching it. It is one of the few memories I remember from that age.

Anyways, when elementary school came. This was a new school for kindergarten. On the first day of school, I refused to go in. Kind of being bratty. Just didn't want to go in. Out of no where someone comes up and grabs my hand. Keep in mind I was basically being a bratty child who probably needed a spanking. I turn and instantly shut up. I just turn red and walk into class holding Kaleigh's hand. We still were best friends for the year and after that school year we said our goodbye. She was moving to another state. I was moving to a new school. I was a kid so we never kept in contact and never reconnected (now 22). Still think back to those moments and wonder what she is up to now.

So what is your childhood friend story?

Did you try looking her up on Facebook? Even if you don't know if her last name is still the same, you might be able to find her though childhood/school connections. In a non-stalker kind of Social media way.

I don't know her last name and my mom doesn't remember either. Thought about it. Don't feel like calling the Elementary school and asking them to look up a kid that was in the same class as me. Besides, I would hate to ruin good memories. You never know what you might find.

School yearbook or class picture? I still have my class picture from kindergarten and it has everyones names on it. I might just look everyone up in a not kinda stalker way. I hope everyone is doing great.

This went from a Lets share our childhood friend stories to. Look her up in less then 1 comment.

I don't think I have any of that stuff. Might be in storage somewhere. If I ever find something like that I will for sure look it up. I just don't see a point in doing so. I'm content with my life and it's pace right now. There is no regret or anything, just curiosity.

Well when I was a kid I knew this girl named Zoe, she came over my house every weekend for years Even-though her parents were my next doo- neighbors, thoughout over a 10 year san they never introduced themselves.

After about 1/2 years of Zoe not talking to us, not coming over anymore. I started high school (she's a year older) & then from that point on she pretended I never existed. Never seen or talked to her again even though she was my neighbor for more than 3/4th of my life.

Talk about a great friend

I spent every day with my N64.

Until the GameCube came out, at least. My two best friends.

The framing of your story was pleasant, and it seems like it was a fond memory for you. This is why people may encourage you to look her up. I do see where you're coming from, though.

Once upon a time I had a childhood friend we'll call by the name Basic for this story. Basic and I lived not far from each other growing up and played together all the time. Throughout early elementary school, we continued to hang out. Basic wasn't always a very nice person even in kindergarten, but I liked her even though she wasn't very nice to me sometimes. As Basic and I grew older, however, she became increasingly shallow. She would spill my 3rd and 4th grade secrets that she promised to keep, manipulate other girls within the friend group against one another, and occasionally bully kids younger than her. As time went by, Basic got worse and continued to betray me until we went to different middle schools and weren't friends anymore. The end.

I used to have a childhood friend whom we'll call "Anthony". None of the other kids would talk to him or play with him because he always had medical equipment with him because he had leukemia. We were both in the "gifted" class, so I started hanging out with him. He used to help me with my math and I would eat lunch with him. On the last day of school before summer, he told me he was moving to another state. I spent all afternoon by his side. To this very day I regret that I didn't confess my feelings to him then and there.

Several years ago, I got back in contact with Anthony on Facebook. I asked if his cancer was in remission and told him that I'd been diagnosed with autism. All he could say was "I'm sorry". He kept repeating it over and over, and I didn't understand why. I was worried that things were getting awkward between us - esp. since there was a girl with him in his profile picture - so I reluctantly unfriended him. I still miss him sometimes and I wish our last conversation hadn't been so awkward. And, like I said before, I still regret that I never told Anthony how I really felt about him.
