My dear friend left an apologizing message on my cell phone the other evening:

“I’m sorry I didn’t reply to your email, I saw it, then the internet went down again; my mom fell - outside, don’t know why she was out there alone, of course she didn’t wanna go to the hospital, but I had to insist, she broke her foot; she really smashed her face too and we’ve had to watch her all week since she’s on Coumadin the doctor was concerned about internal bleeding; and my car is in for repairs again; I really gotta do something about replacing it, but right now I don’t have a car,” I heard Beth say all in the same breath.

A while later anxious to find out what I could do to help I returned her call.

“Let’s go out for coffee, ice cream or something – anything,” my friend replied at the sound of my voice.

“Okay,” I said. “I’ll pick you up in a couple of minutes,” I said with as much reassurance in my voice as I could possibly muster.

“It’s so-o good to see you,” I said as we exchanged warm hugs.

“Where do you want to go? Beth asked.

“How about Applegate’s for ice cream? I suggested.

“Sounds great – my treat,” my friend replied.

Beth and I spent the next three hours catching up on all that had transpired in busy lives of each of us. Though not related by blood we are truly sisters in faith. We touch each other’s hearts.

I like your interpretation of the topic. Your dialogue is very good. But I think you could have made the friendship more alive if you given it a setting.

A good story about strong friendships. I wonder if you meant "apologetic" message. Your punctuation could use a litle "sprucing up" for clarity. Nice job on the story. God Bless.

You did a nice job defining what friendship is all about. I yearned to know more about your characters, how they became friends, what their daily life is like. Keep writing you have a great start, I imagine if you could push yourself to use more of the allotted word count, you would have an outstanding story.
