friend

Her lack of concern over Hely's distant manner took her by surprise, but she could not help being pleased by how little pain his indifference caused her.

This is a quote from the book I'm currently reading, The Little Friend. It refers to a ten year old girl. A ten year old girl whose emotional maturity clearly surpasses my own. This depresses me, even though it is just fiction.

Of course, I haven't got to the end yet, so maybe the whole book will end with her hitting puberty and becoming a pathetic little boy-slave like myself. One never knows.
