Just started reading this. I love how real this all is. I had a somewhat similar situation happen to me that ended a friendship as a result of a misunderstanding that I couldn't even find the strength to try and correct at the time and just walked away, which I deeply regret.

As an adult and a parent of two teenagers, I can look at this situation and be like "Man, while Amber might have handled her venting to her friend poorly, constantly interrupting her to get what was bothering her off her chest, Amber just wanted someone to listen to her that she trusted. Freya could have simply just took her aside and told Amber that it bothered her the way she did that, and I'm sure they would have worked everything out just fine and still been friends. Instead, she gave Amber the cold shoulder and, ironically, put her problems on others which then spread into rumours about her friend, and now their friendship is over."

Teenagers can be silly :P.
