Possible Answer:
Whenever I think about my childhood friends, I recall many of them who had been very close to me. One such friend, about whom I would like to talk about, is Mark. He was a really good friend of mine. I met Mark when I was 6 or 7 years old. He was a kid of our neighbourhood and I met him first day at our garden. His family lived next to our house. I was with my father in the garden and then suddenly Mark appeared there and asked me if I live here. This is how we first met and then we spent almost 5-6 years together until his father was transferred to some other state.

We did lots of things together and at that time we were neighbours, classmates and good friends. We used to go to school together, played at our home, read and sometimes went to picnic together. We had many things in common; both of us like playing video games, reading stories, running in the field, stamp collecting, watching cartoons, animated movies and many other activities. Somehow I felt at that time that we have a similar taste of foods, clothing and views on different issues. At that moment this friendship was very important to me. We were like brothers and best friends. We had so many common interests and we enjoyed playing, studying and doing other stuff together. He was the only neighbouring kid who could easily spend time with me with the consent of my parents. My parents and Marks parents were like family friends and that's why we got the chance to spent time together.

This friendship is particularly important to me because I have lots of happy memories related to my childhood and had become an unrepeatable part of it.
