The sound of laughter filled the air as a girl and a boy ran across the park, the grass muffling the sounds made by their little feet, their shouts of joy clearly heard, and their small hands clasped together.
Young as they might be and still unaware of things regarding promises and friendship, they somehow made a simple promise: that they will be the best of friends and they will look after the other if ever something happens.
One beautiful spring morning, they decided to go play in the park. Because it was near their houses, their parents didn't mind at all.
The girl and the boy played tag. While the girl was running, she fell and bruised herself. She whimpered, and the boy came over to kneel before her.
"What happened?" he asked.
The girl showed her bruised knee and pointed to the grass where a rock lay.
The boy sat beside the girl, thinking of what to do. Then he remembered what his older brother did when he cut himself while playing in their yard. He took out his handkerchief and tied it around the girl's knee. "There. Is that better?"
The girl wiped her tears, smiled shyly and nodded.
"You should know how to take care of yourself," the boy said. He took the girl by the hand and helped her to her feet.
"Why?" the girl asked.
"What if I wasn't around? Who would have helped you?"
Confused, the girl looked at the boy. "But..why wouldn't you be around? Are you going to leave me? What about our promise? Your promise?"
The boy smiled. "Of course, I will always be around," he said. "I won't forget that."
"You have to promise."
"That no matter what happens, you'll never leave me and we will always be friends."
"Okay," the boy said and shrugged. "I promise."
The girl placed her hands on her hips, momentarily forgetting about her bruised knee. "You don't mean it," she said. "You have to promise me and mean it."
The boy sighed. "Okay. I promise. And I mean it."
