I used to have a best friend. We met in my freshman year of college. We weren't the closest immediately, but come second semester, we were thick as thieves. We had the same sarcastic and self-deprecating sense of humor. We had the same lazy, no-care style. We even looked similar, with our brown hair and slightly over-weight bodies.

Kuri rolled along the rough rocks of his home planet, zipping towards his cave. The only sound that he heard was that of his wheels zooming, with the occasional pebble clattering through.
