Michael closed the door and knew at that moment that he had made a terrible mistake. He had left the keys inside his home. Michael was really worried because his parents were away on holidays and he couldn’t remember any way to get other keys. But then, he remembered his parents told him there was a supply key below the carpet next to his door. He was really relieved. When he was checking if the key was there or not, he had had a surprise. The key wasn’t there! He was even more nervous than he was before! There was only one solution left. He had to ask to a friend to sleep and eat in his home till his parents ended their holidays, because he didn’t want to bore his parents.
His day wasn’t really going well, but it got worse. All his friends, or better, those who he called friends, weren’t willing to let him ever enter. Even his best friend, refused to let him enter. He wasn’t expecting this attitude from his supposed friends, he was really sad. He had only one option left, he had to sleep on the street on that cold night. He managed to discover a place with some protection for the rain and also, some things to warm him up. What he didn’t know was that a family would discover him and help him as well. On the next day, he woke up on a bed and he couldn’t understand what had happened till a man came in and explained him all. He told Michael that he was safe and asked for his parents’ number to tell them what had happened. Everything went right and he got home as soon as his parents arrived.
In the end, he realized he hadn’t true friends and that for a true friendship is needed much more that he thought it was. Despite all this, he was successful because of this experience. He wrote a book about friendship and he got many awards.
