A beautiful garden echoed with the laughing sound of children. Everything was green. The aura was covered entirely with sweet scented rows of flowers. The air was so incredibly light and cool and fresh and clear. Just a few steps away on the other bench some old age home senior citizens relaxing. Kids having fun during the happy hours of weekend holidays while playing on swings, running and hiding behind trees and bushes.

Best friends, John and Ken sat down on the white marble bench and breathed in the fresh wonderful air. They looked one another sitting silent and yet with a smile on their face, cared a sweet companionship. Over the years they have developed a warm friendship. Soon they as always started sharing new stories and ideas. Talks touched from butterfly to aeroplanes, they exchanged words on all aspects of fields and life phase.

As they were chatting, John got up and walks seamless around the bench just following the delights of nature and gazing the colourful butterfly that settles on the shoulder of his friend Ken who’s sitting almost on the edge of the garden.

Softly with a gentle breeze, the butterfly fluttering its wings flies away.
John observe that Ken gaze upon the butterfly until it really disappears. His eyes were a soft brown and yet with a depth and sparkle of innocence.

‘You really like butterfly!’ amused John said to Ken.
‘Butterflies are beautiful, colourful, full of life and free to fly anywhere.’ Ken replied!

‘What is your one foremost desire?’ John asked Ken.
I want to be like a butterfly...I have a desire to be liberated to soar high like a butterflyKen said.

‘Do you have any other such longing aspiration?’ Ken asked John.
Staring at the kids playing in the garden John replied, ‘I wish to play long hours, running here and there but with my best friend...
A light smile crossed his face, and Ken knew John was referring to him!

A mild orange colour of the sky had turned into violet sparkle; birds were flying back their nests and so as most of the kids’ rushing back home. Ken’s grandfather was warmly wrinkled, but soft came to take Ken back to home. Ken and John left for respective home with a see you around smile.

As John reached home he kept thinking of the aspirations he and his friend Ken had.
He was quietly amused with the wish Ken had... ‘A longing wish to fly high’.
~ Almost whole night with a tired sigh, John kept wondering how to accomplish these wishes that would multiply the bliss in recreating the resonate liveliness.

Next day usual time he again went to the park to see his friend. He looked bright and had a flash of idea.
Ken came to the park on time waiting for John to arrive. As John saw Ken he swiftly reached towards him.
Almost immediately John sat down on his knees and asked his friend Ken to hop over John’s back. Ken got baffled and almost clueless about the John’s intentions.

He curiously asked John, ‘Why do you want me to hop over your back?’
‘Just hop over...don’t think anything else! ’ excited John replied.

Ken again asked, ‘But why...what’s on your mind’
‘Remember yesterday I told you my one desire I wanna fulfil, here is the way to my dream...trust me just get on my back and help me my dear friend’ John whispered softly with a curve on his lips.

As Ken and John exchanged glances, and they all over again braced their bonding.
John stretched his hand to help Ken to get over lean comfy back from the wheel chair. Perhaps Ken, a little kid could not walk and the wheel chair actually helped the purpose.

After few adjustments, Ken got over John’s back. Curious and clueless Ken took his hands around John’s neck for support. As soon as John got him over his back...he started walking speedily. Almost sooner, more rapidly John started to run. He ran as fast as he could on the green carpeted grass.
Ken panicked and asked John to slow down.
But enthusiastic John wanted to fulfil his desire to play and run together with his ‘best-friend’.
Soon both of them felt the cool breeze over their faces and slowly Ken’s fear vanished. Ken hugged tighter and warmer from the back to John. They sure enjoyed the moments but the best was yet to happen.

John’s long time desire to run around and play with his ‘best-friend’ was getting fulfilled.
Further John said ‘My dream is getting fulfilled and now it’s your turn...open you wings and fly like a butterfly!

For the moment Ken got completely amazed and quickly he opened his arms and started flapping like a butterfly. Few butterflies encircled them while John was still running holding Ken on his back. Ken was more than happy to see he could fly. The look on his face as like compete amazement. John could hear the happy tone of Ken’s laugh and cheer in claps.

+ He felt immensely delightful pleasing his friend’s longing desire.

...Best-Friends bond shared regardless to differentiation and limitations..
There was a ripple of emotions and an irony of joy that complimented through the beautiful wonderful little life with an unconditional love of the best-friend. Mellow nature poured and they felt a healing touch warming hearts.
~ Every detail of the moment was so perfect. No further explanation or reason seemed necessary to prove that they were truly best-friends regardless to their limitation.
