3 keys

A few days ago, i read a short story called 'remember' by unknown writer from a piece of paper.

It is a good short story.This is a review. It is about a relationship of people that we know in daily life.

In that short story,Richard and Charles knew each other since they entered Oxford. At first, they were not close until they became quite best friend in the third years.

Richard thought that Charles was his good or best friends.Their relationship seems OK.Until a few occasion, Charles made a few statement that show the reality of their relationship. 

The keys were:

1) i knew you because we were in the same course.If not, i would not like to know you

2)At least s/he is better than you

3)Are you a friend?

Richard could bear when Charles made the first statement but no longer felt that he should for the rest.

Richard admitted he had done many things that Charles didn't like. However, Richard thought he would always help Charles whenever he needed.

Charles actually didn't want to be friend with Richard.He seems stuck with Richard because they were in the same courses. Richard now realized this and reflected on Charles statements.

The writer left the story on what Richard should do next after the reflection.

It is very simple but nice short story and i'm reflecting myself.
