I can still remember the first time I met Medi

I can still remember the first time I met Medi. It was a sunny day in year 3 and we were meeting our new form teachers for year 4. Me and Medi were the two new boys in our class and we didn’t know anyone in our new classes. We quickly became friends (and also had lengthy conversations with the other boys on our table). When the time came for year 4 to start, I was really looking forward to seeing Medi again. Over the year, we became close friends and in year 5, we were extremely good friends, and that continued into year 6. He always came into school with a huge smile on his face, either ready to play football or tell someone a joke. Just the thought that I’ll never see that smile again makes we incredibly upset and I will really miss him in the years to come.
