FLY WITH ME
This is Tiffany’s story, who receives a call from the police one morning forcing her to deal with a chapter from her past, which she is unhappy to revisit. When she calls her friend Dylan, it’s Mat from New Zealand she ends up talking to.
Thanks … and enjoy 🙂
Tiffany went into the kitchen for a drink and as she filled and switched on the kettle, her mind went back to the conversation with Dylan’s friend Mat. She’d enjoyed the brief, although bizarre, conversation. His voice had been so happy and full of energy, it had taken her mind off her problem within only a few minutes. Something she hadn’t been able to achieve with the bath she’d taken later that morning. The whole hysteria from the previous year had crept up, leaving her anxious, tense, and with a headache. A nice cup of tea would hopefully do the trick. She thought of Mat’s laugh and her mouth curled in response. It’d been a deep hearty laugh. One of those laughs that could be contagious to anyone who heard it. Closing her eyes, she tried to remember whether Dylan had ever mentioned Mat’s name, but as much as she tried, she wasn’t able to recall ever hearing about a friend from New Zealand.
The whistling of the kettle drew her back from her thoughts, and she poured the water into her cup. Dipping the teabag in and out of the water, she recalled her conversation with Dylan.
“What’s up Tiff? I’ve got about three missed calls here.”
Relief rushed through her like a tidal wave, almost catching her breath. After all, most of her problems were half as bad once Dylan was there to help. Despite being Liam, her brother’s best friend, Dylan and Tiffany had become close during the year Liam had gone to London for a gap year.
“Why haven’t you ever told me about Mat?” Stunned by her own question, she slapped her forehead a couple of times wondering where the question had come from— especially as matters more important were on hand.
There was a quiet chuckle on the other end of the line and a bout of embarrassment rushed through her.
Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!
