Who is the person in your school or neighbourhood that you think is the least likely person for you to become friends with? (It might be someone your age, or someone much younger, or much older.) Write a story in which you – somehow – become friends? What brings you together? How does this person surprise you when you get to know him/her better than you do now? How do your old friends feel about your new friendship?
