Construction of future tense

Construction of future tense

It says with future proche the placement of me, te, lui, etc. is between aller and faire (du) mal. But in "Il va faire mal à ma meillure amie" that is not where it is placed. Isn't that sentence future proche? I'm confused.

Hi Nicole,

 Il va faire mal à ma meilleure amie ------ Il va lui faire mal

Elle va faire mal à mes parents ---- Elle va leur faire mal

Hope this helps!

Actually I just realized there is no me, te, lui, etc. in that sentence. But I would like to see an example where it is constructed that way.
