Splitting PathsThe leaves crunched under our feet as we walked, our hands interlocked, smiling at each other and swinging our hands back and forth.We've been walking this road for 3 years now, the seasons changing and everything blooming then dying.At the start, our road was a little dead. It was very plain, with a few things blossoming here and there, a little boring, but still nice.In the middle, everything bloomed and everything was gorgeous. There were tall trees, fields of flowers, and the dirt below us even had things growing on it. Birds sang, and we even crossed paths with a few others.Three nice girls, one whom I have already known, and another who she already knew, and then a girl who came in a bit late, and left far too soon, but was still our good friend.We somehow managed to stay in contact with them.In the start of our 3rd year on this long path, that seemed to never end, it was beautiful.

Background CharacterI'm a background character.I wear an invisibility cloak.I don't make an impact on this script.I'm easily jealous. I'm pathetic compared to the other actors.What could I do right?I always mess up my acting and my lines.Everyone knows this.Nobody needs me in their script. I'm the background character.They're all major characters, with their supporting side character(s).They can turn to their side character(s) for help. for love. for support. for everything. They can trust them. They can talk to them easily.In groups of fours or threes, They set off with their side characters to enjoy themselves and laugh.They split into twos. Never into ones.But I'm not a side character. I'm a background character.So I'll just stand in the back and watch, donning my invisibility cloak with a sad smile, as I watch you perform your script with your Side Characters.I'll never get the role as Side Character.Such is the life as a Background Character.
