Happiness in Simple Things

Duckie and Puppy, as they affectionately called each other, ran full speed across the little clearing until one playful push had them both sprawled on the ground. Duckie smiled over at the wisp of blond hair in the flowers next to her. “Puppy, doesn’t it just feel perfect?” The wisp of blond hair transformed into a face as Puppy pushed the grass aside, “It does, we are such little kids… but I love it.” The two 18 year old girls smiled happily up at the sky and relished the feel of the sun, the moving shade of each flower, and the small bursts of warm wind rolling across smooth faces. Friendship is finding someone to whom you can show all sides, including the most important, simple and happy inner child.
