 Last time, I quarreled with my friend. I really regret it, because she is my best friend. So I apologized to her immediately.

The last time I apologized is when I broke my older brother's favorite suitcase, which has an adorable snoopy on. But my brother was being quite nice to me and said ''it's ok, it's still in good condition, you don't have to worry about it! However, you're my little sister.'' I was so grateful for him being so friendly to the clumsy me.
