How would I go about conveying a great, strong friendship in a paragraph or a few. The background is I have two characters, who have been good friends since before they're introduced, and one is going to be killed. I want to give the reader the feeling that this is a great loss, even though they haven't experienced the friendship first hand other than for a chapter or two. I need to make them know and better yet feel the strength of the friendship and therefore they'll be able to understand the sadness the one character feels when his bestfriend is killed in front of him. So how do I convey this kind of thing in a paragraph or two? Or is there another way to do it? It has to be quick, maybe a little longer, but how do I do it?
