A Friend in Need

avatar

I’m sure many of you by now already know that I’m big on friendships. I absolutely enjoy making new friends as it gives me this sort of joy that I just seem to not know how to explain. But in as much as I’m big on friendships, I don’t carry the same vibe when it comes to telling them things I consider secrets as I’ve seen and heard of friends backstabbing friends so many times that I don’t need to experience it myself to know it’s something I don’t want happening to me.

But we won’t be talking about friends who backstab others today,that would be a topic for another day. Today we will be talking about good friends, people who actually go out of their way just to make you happy.

A few years ago when I had just been newly granted admission into the university, about a week to my exams, I had discovered an error on my admission letter. My elder brother had been the one who processed the whole of the admission stuff for me (he was schooling there at the time while I lived kilometers away with the rest of our family) so when I resumed, I had not gone through the files he gave to me. I had just collected it from him and shoved it somewhere until those few days to my exams when I noticed there was an error somewhere on one of those files.

The error was so huge that if not sorted out on time, it would see me transferring to a whole different department just few days to the exams which was very impossible since I haven’t attended any lectures in that department.

So I and my brother with a friend of ours had started walking through the whole school trying to get anyone to help us. I and my brother didn’t really know much places in the school and that was why we had asked his friend to tag along. The idea had been for him to lend a helping hand when needed but the most unexpected thing had happened instead. He had taken the whole issue so serious that one would think he was the one who stood a chance of failing his exams if the whole issue wasn’t sorted out.

At the end of the whole ordeal (which lasted for about 2-3 days) that friend of ours finally took us to a lecturer friend of his who later made some calls and helped us resolve the whole issue just in time for me to sit for my exam in my preferred department.

I had gone to thank the friend of ours who literally did everything for me. He’s a very good example of the saying ‘A friend in need is a friend indeed’.

Very true. They’re so rare and should be kept close if you happen to have one of them as your friends.

Thank you for your comment my friend.
