A small girl, maybe five, sat on the school swing set, swinging back and forward, slowly.

A small girl, maybe four, sat in the corner of the playground, crying, tears falling, slowly.

The small girl on the wing set saw the other small girl, and started to walk towards her, slowly.

The crying small girl looked up at the other small girl, and started to stop crying, slowly.

The two small girls looked at each other until one of them said the word that would start a friendship forever, slowly.

"Hello?"

It came out as a question, but then stronger and more confident.

"Hello."
