When I was in first class elementary school in Germany, I used to know a boy. His name was Swen. Swen used to be a lonely kid. Nobody would talk to him, and because of that he was very aggressive and would always talk bad to the other children and hit them, then run away. Nobody liked him.

We were around 6. I didn't like him either. Until he talked to me. We became friends. I think I was his only friend. But nobody else knew about it; I didn't want the other kids to find out that I was hanging out with Swen, since everybody hated him so much.

We used to go to the woods together and spend some time alone there. We would talk about various matters -- whatever a child around 6 can think of.

Then we used to go the super market, get in, take a walk around, steal some chocolates by putting them under our shirts, and then leave slowly and sneaky as if we hadn't bought anything.

We used to go back to the woods. There, we would eat the chocolate we had stolen, and talk about stuff.

One day, a staff guy from the super market asked us what we were doing. Swen said we were just checking out the prices. The guy responded that it wasn't allowed and that we should leave. We never stole chocolates again.

The same summer, I came back to Greece, and I never saw Swen again. Another friend of mine from school wrote me a letter saying how things were, and he mentioned Swen, saying he was worse than any other time. I didn't respond.

I think I may have been that type when I was little... Though I'm a twin, so perhaps it's slightly different.

How did the fact that you're a twin affect your behavior?

As a twin, I didn't have to branch out much socially. I've always been somewhat of an outsider, and I imagine being a twin added to that, as I could hang out with my brother instead of trying to make friends.

Starting in first or second grade or so, I wasn't in class with my brother, but I didn't do very well at making friends. Mostly I had school "acquaintances." I don't think I was violent on more than a couple of occasions, but violence was a veritable side effect.

I guess I've been "normal" since sixth grade or so, but I'm still an introverted shut-in to some extent. I still video-chat with my brother on occasion, and over Thanksgiving break I spent most of my time with him. At school, I have a number of promising acquaintances, but I don't know how many will carry over past the end of the academic year.

Aha I see, quite an interesting perception. It must be nice to have a twin brother sometimes, though, I find. :)

I remember a lot of stories like this when little. Me and my friend build our own tree house in the woods way back behind my house. We even stayed the night in it once and got in so much trouble when we went home :lol:

good times though!
