The year is 199X. Two boys are sitting in front of a tree. One
of them climbed up the tree and said, "Hey! I can see my house
The other boy said, "Well, of course you can see your house from
here. Your house is right next to this tree up the hill."
The boy in the tree is Nathan. He is 7 years old. The boy leaning
against the tree is Greg. He's 8 years old. The 2 of them have been
close friends since they were extremely little.
All of a sudden, a strong gust blew and Greg said, "Hey! Let me up

the house, he looked out to the field filled w/ red and yellows,
and oranges. And under his breth, Greg must have gasped of said
wow and that's when Nathan turned around and said, "Oh. That's
just the field during the fall. It's nothing special."
"Nothing special!? It's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen!
I mean, this is the thing that artists always dream of painting,

isn't the reason you came over so often is it?"
"Of course not! I love coming over because it let's us have
fun together. I like you Nathan. You really are the best friend
I could ever have."
"I'm glad. And I hope that it stays this way for as long as we
13 years later, Greg and Nathan have lost touch because Greg's
parents have divorced and remarried. Neither of them took the
time to maintain the relationship. Why? Who knows? But this is
all bound to change sooner than you think...
End Part I.
