She was shocked when she opened the envelope and saw that it was…
She was shocked when she opened the envelope and saw that it was a wedding card and a letter from her long lost childhood best friend Mike. He was getting married in a month and had asked her to come. Memories took a U turn and she found herself smiling.
Mike and Nancy were inseparable. They were neighbours and used to roam around each other’s house whole day long. They would study, play, do assignments and even dance together. Their parents were good friends too. It was only after Mike’s Father switched his job and went to other city, they lost touch. Initially, they exchanged letters and called on birthdays. But as life’s hardships took over, they got settled into their own lives. Nancy got married and has a 3 years old daughter. She sometimes remembers their carefree friendship days and then jerks her mind off it as she knows Mike would have forgotten everything.
Today, holding his letter and his card, made her nostalgic. Tears welled up into her eyes. She dialled the number on the card to call him. The two best friends had a good laugh after so long.
