4. What friends are for
I started walking the 20 minute walk to the flat I share with my best friend, Kay, barefoot. One of the heels were now broken. Those were my favourite shoes. I saw a pile of rubbish on someone's nature strip so I added them to it. I sighed, I seem to be sighing a lot lately, at least it was another thing I didn't have to carry. I continued walking and finally made it home.
I open the door and yelled hi. Kay came over and dropped the glass she was holding, sending shards of it everywhere. I yelped "KAY! That's another one gone!"
"Sorry, but why do you look like a drowned rat?" she said whilst going to get a broom.
"Well you could say I had an eventful day..."
"I'm listening, and go and run a bath."
"okay, well..." I went off and ran a bath whilst telling her the events of my day. When I got to the part about Mr Stilencksy telling me my work was crap, she cracked it.
"WHO DOES HE THINK HE IS?!? HE HAS NO RIGHT TO SAY THAT ABOUT YOUR WORK! IT'S AMAZING! IM GONNA GO AND PUNCH THE CR-"
"Kay, KAY! Calm down, it's okay, I handled it."
"Yeah right, sorry Summer but you getting angry is like the cloud blocking the sun, doesn't work very well or last long."
I laughed at this, it was true. "No Kay, I quit ."
"KAY, I QUIT! And I'm NOT saying it AGAIN!"
"I'm sorry, that was a bit of a shock, what did he say?"
"Nothing, I flounced out before he had the chance to speak!" She high fived me when I said this.
"BRILLIANT! That no good man needs to take a hike!" we laughed about this until I remembered the bath was on.
"Oh crap! The bath!" we both ran into the now flooding bathroom. I turned the taps off and looked at Kay. We both cracked up.
Once we had finally stopped laughing she left and I got in the bath and let the day's worries float away in the bath water and I watched them go down the drain when I pulled the plug.
