A Fair-weather Friend (Part II)

P and V finally made arrangements to meet at their local coffee shop. V felt a flutter of apprehension as she approached the doors to their once regular hangout. She recognised P straight away and vice versa; neither of them had changed physically, at least. They sat down at their regular table and ordered their drinks.

They began to talk and, to V's surprise, in spite of any bitterness she felt towards P, their conversation was surprising relaxed and bore traces of the casual banter which had been their trademark. Although both were slightly reserved initially, less than an hour later, all barriers seem to have dropped and they conversed candidly. Both apologised to the other for misunderstandings and being stubborn. When they finally left to go home, they hugged each other warmly and promised not to lose touch again.

And as for V, she was glad that she decided to go ahead with the meeting. Things would never be back to the way they were, but to expect that was unrealistic. They had both grown older and wiser, and learnt from mistakes. Their friendship would definitely need some work but she was confident that they would get there eventually.

At least some stories have happy endings :-).

Hey Arian, thanks for visiting my both blog.
It looks like beginning to me not the ending so it would be unfair to say 'happy ending' ;)

Hmm..what misunderstandings?? P deserted V, that is the bottom line. Although V was the bigger person to forgive P, she should have still made her suffer some more.
