Sarah

Didi

Sarah

Didi, its called responsibility.

friday normally has traffic but only Grace is good at time keeping the rest of the girls are usually late. So as usual she arrived first. Ordered tea and pulled out her phone, went through her emails and texts and just as she was almost done responding to her third email, Didi arrives. Clad in heels a black knee-length dress, and a red lip.

Grace

Are you from work or you went home and changed? (getting up to give her a hug)

Didi

No, I had heels in the car.

Grace

(to herself) I think I embarrass you guys with my sneakers but its okay. So how have you been.How is work?

Didi

Grace

Great! work same old, maybe getting bored so I need a new hook up but as it comes i hang in their. Do you want to order anything, (as she raises hand to the waitress)

Didi

Ofcourse, Am actually hungry so I can order something and we share. how is Pearl. Meanwhile that babe can talk Jeez. Last we were together everyone at the table was listening to just her amidst loud noise.

Grace

Oh, She is about to call me and ask for a pavement session. She has been stressed but I love how she handles it. She is so Jolly.

Didi

Pavement Session….

Grace

Yes. That part where you forget that you are twenty-five and become twelve and seat down on a pavement by the road at night and just talk. You know I do those things

Didi

Sarah wearing office pants in black,black top and red wedges enters with Tara in a white dress and purple lipstick. her jacket thrown over her shoulder, a few steps behind Sarah. Grace and Didi get up to give them hugs.

Grace

Before it gets down, we need to have food on this table so let’s make orders.

Tara

This place is beautiful,

Didi

But you suggested it, you hadn’t been here?

Tara

No. I was told about it. So it was perfect choice for today.

Sarah

What….why you are looking at me like that?….oh the phone rule. Hmmm but  you girls.  Okay let me keep it away.

Grace

(Didi, Grace and Sherry burst out into laughter. waitress brings the food)

Sarah

Sarah

OMG (laughing) you girls are mad

Grace

But at what part do you go after the lunch box. You want felix to kill you?

Tara

Well, when you eat you don’t just have a starter especially if you are hungry. So if the food is available you eat. Sadly, it wasnt satisfying, so we couldn’t keep sharing I needed to buy my own

(everyone still laughing) she keeps explaining..….

Sarah
