furuki

In Fairy Tail, when the king of the spirits speaks to certain people, he uses a word or phrase that they translate as "old friend". That's how he speaks to Loke in episode 32, and at the end he calls Lucy that, too.

What he's saying sounds to me like furuki but I can't find a reasonable entry in the dictionary for it that makes sense. What is he saying?

1 You heard it just right. 故き友 literally is an old friend. Well, I imagine calling someone "furui tomo" would make it a friend who you're trying to insult by hinting that he's decrepit or something, I dunno.

2 Well, Luci says "furui tomodachi" later, not sure if it's okay to use though. I would not.
