Kate flew through the doorway. This was just like her, sensing when I most needed company. Without a word, Chinese take-out in one hand, she pulled me towards the kitchen.
“I just don’t think I can do it. How do I say goodbye?”
Pushing aside my blank attempts, placing mu shu before me, she coaxed “Eat! The words will come”
“I don’t have any”….she pulled out a pair of chopsticks and topped off my wine.
“But I’m a fork girl.”
“I know, Zan. It’s for Brett, just the way he likes it, with enough Sriracha to guarantee your eyes water.

I have been away too long. Missing all my Friday Fictioneer Friends. So it seemed as good a time as any to jump back in.
Saying goodbye is awful – whether it be to the living or the dead. Nicely done.
So true. Alicia. Goodbyes can be bittersweet. That’s when friends come in handy.
Dana, Good and well-written story about true friendship. I hope you’re feeling much better. Welcome back. 🙂 —Susan
Thanks Susan. I feel better everyday. And getting back to writing is a huge help.
Dear Dana, Great story and it does help when you have someone who knows you and is there for you when you need them. Great friend, great writing and you, are a great author! Nan 🙂
Thank you so much Nan. Great friends are truly wonderful gifts.
Nice to see you here. And I enjoyed your story. Nothing like having a good friend who understands and knows what to do or say during tough times.
Life would be unbearable without good friends. Thanks Rochelle
Good take. I’m back myself, but only for this week and then not until late August. Good to see you again.
Thanks Janet. I’ll make sure to read yours. It feels good to be writing again.
Oh! All what we have to do to please others 🙂
