I stood nervously in Arrivals, butterflies in my stomach. Why had I ever agreed to this reunion in the first place?

I could have worn jeans and a T-shirt, but felt it was better for Jack (an old schoolfriend who'd kept in touch by email) to discover the 'new' me in public, where there was less chance of confrontation. I hoped he wouldn't reject my new appearance.

Then I saw him ambling down the concourse, looking equally as nervous. Or should I say, I saw 'her'.

Maybe this reunion wouldn't be so bad after all...

perfect little drabble

letting us imagine how the reunion will go from here.
The last line is probably a major understatement...

"Oh my god, you mean you-"

"So it's Jaqui now?"

"So many times I wanted to say something but-"

"Unlike a lot of guys, I always felt comfortable hanging around you..."

"Remember the time we-"

"And so THAT'S what you meant that time when you said-"

"Love your earrings!"

"Suporn in April last year? I must've just missed you..."

Etc.
~~~hugs, Laika

The new you...

...perhaps new but not so novel, yes? Short and exceptionally sweet. Thank you.
