I've never really understood the whole wishing on 11:11. I mean what happens if you wish on 12:12? But I remember what I wished for on November 11th, 2011 at exactly 11:11 pm. I wished for someone to love me always. I suppose my friends are great examples of that. I mean Ken has always been there for me, and he will always be there. I miss him though. More than he will ever know. I miss his smile, and the way he would always make light of every situation he was in. And more than that, I miss his awkwardness.

I think I can finally admit it, but I love Ken. But I'm far too late. Too much time has passed between us.

And Lena will always be there for me. I've known her since we were freshmen in high school. We've always been there for each other, through thick and thin. I remember how when her father passed away, we were at a restaurant after the funeral, and I asked her if she was okay, and she replied, "No, I'm not." And she laid her head down on the table. I stroked her hair for a few minutes until she felt calm and relaxed. And I ispered to her, "No one here will ever hurt you."
