Me and Harry decided not to tell anyone about his cancer.
I began my shopping for new clothes as i do every month and decided to wear a big floppy hat so no one could see my face when I saw a silhouette rushing towards me.
I tried to dodge them but they ran after me and tackled me in a hug, people were starting to look. oh no. I quickly pulled this person into the nearest bathrooms and turned to face them when I realized it was my Best friend.
M: OMG, Rebecca I haven't seen you in ages.
R: Hey, I didn't think I'd find you, Harry told me you went shopping and I saw you here.
I looked at Rebecca, Not much had changed. Yes, she died her hair purple and cut it short but her personality was exactly the same. I doubt she's learned any life lessons.
M: So what have you been up to lately
R: OMG, there have been so many parties, but I kinda go solo cause your not there.
Hmm, I thought. Still out going to parties when we're 25. Why hasn't she found anymore friends. The light from the overhead ceiling bounced off her face covered in too much makeup and revealing clothes made her stand out like a candle in a dark room.
R: come with me, we have a surprise for you.
M: Ok. what do you mean we?
R: you'll find out soon enough."
I heard a slight menacing tone in her voice which made me immediately question my decision. But she was my friend so I was not going to let the opportunity of being with her go.
We walked out of the shopping center, Rebecca leading the way to her car, she told me not to worry about my car and that it had been handled. As we neared her car I realized it was a black 4WD. It's windows were tinted so dark that the sun couldn't even bring any light to it. As we buckled up she gave me a blindfold to wear.
I put it on and co-operated even though I might've been sick from the motion.
the car slowly stopped and Rebecca guided me through a series of turns when she let go of me. i immediately took off the blindfold because I hated being in that dark nothingness.
A crowd of old and new friends popped up out from behind furniture and yells surprise. It was my Bridal shower. I reunited with old friends and we spent the rest of the day playing games and having a good time.
I should have a good time anyway, I've been depressed and stressed lately, the wedding is in a week.
