Lauren And Carly

Once upon a time there were two best friends. One of the girls was Carly and the other was Lauren. They grew up together and they did everything together like play dolls. When they grew up Lauren moved about 30 minutes away but they were still best friends. But after a while Carly moved to New South Wales because her dad had to work over there. When she went Carly gave Lauren this angel worry box. She said “When you are worried grab this box and remember you are still my best friend.” When Carly came over to visit, Lauren always missed her so Lauren wrote her a note saying ‘I miss you when am I going to see you.’ A few months later Lauren got an email address and Carly and Lauren got to speak all the time. Lauren found the angel worry box and she thought of Carly and she missed her all the time and Carly missed Lauren all the time too. Carly rang Lauren and told her all about what she did since the last time she spoke to Lauren and Lauren did too. It was four months until Carly sent an email. She sent a picture of her dressed up as Captain Jack Sparrow and sent a message saying 'I wish you were here to see this, it is so funny.'
