Working Together

In my fifth grade class, my friend needed help. He needed to finish the math homework on time so we worked together on it. Once we got started he seemed to get the hang of it which made it easier for both of us. After some time we realized we had a problem: we were missing a piece of the puzzle. We had to find the piece so we searched the area but found nothing. Later, an idea popped into our heads: maybe it was in his folders! So we checked, but still nothing so we were left with asking the teacher. We went to the teacher and asked her if we had thrown it out but we were certain we had not thrown it away. After some time of searching we were left to get a new puzzle and find out which piece was missing. That took us a long time but we found it and finished the puzzle with minutes to spare. At the end of class we turned in and got everything right! The thing that made us friends, though, wasn't getting everything right. Instead, it was the process of working through our problems to get a solution and we were no longer just friends we had a really close friendship.
