She had a friend.

      -        What are you doing here? "he asked
     -         You know it yourself. " she replied
     -         But I don’t understand. I think you were…
     -         Yes. Everything was exactly as you think
They were siting on the sole bench in the park and a wide lake was stretching in front of them.
They knew this place well, although for him it was slightly different this time.
     -         What are we doing? " said he
     -         It is obvious. We are talking " answered she with a passing smile.
     -         You know what I mean.
     -         Yes. I do. But you know the answer to your question as good as I do.
     -         Yeah. I guess so..
He looked at her. The whole world was in her eyes. Theirs world. Memories so distant and remote that he could barely remember them were bursting from the very depth of his mind. He could read all of her thoughts in her eyes. And he was sure that she could do the same with him.
     -         You know me like nobody else does. " he said
     -         Same goes to you. You are the only one with who I can be myself. You are the single person who knows the real me.
He smiled for a second but then a shadow of tiredness appeared on his face. He said:
     -         You know, the last half of the year was the hardest.
     -         You did perfect. "she replied
     -         You always believed in me far more that I did.
She looked at him and said calmly:
     -         You just didn’t see what I saw in you. You have never realized how much you were able to do.
     -         How much time has passed since our first meeting here? " he asked  
     -         Too many to be counted. " answered she.
     -         And here we are. Siting at the same spot as we used to be long time ago.
     -         Everything is different this time " she noticed.
     -         I guess you’re right. Everything will be different from now on.
They were siting for a minute quietly and then he said:
     -         I think it’s time.
They stood up and went along the lake…
It was quiet in the room. There were only two people there.
     -         Time of death 9:45 pm " said Dr. Evans
     -         What caused his death? " asked Jane, the nurse who were taking care of him.
     -         Six months ago, he lost his wife. Since then he became a shadow of a person. At first, his mind were fading away and then his body too. He just refused to live anymore...
