“Friends Talk”

DeeGee and Marla sat on the back porch watching the sunset.  It was a beautiful night and the sun was filtering through the trees and reflecting on the pond.

Marla asked about the two super attractive men DeeGee was talking to at the restaurant.  DeeGee told her they were new in town and had arrived on the five o’clock train.  They had seemed genuinely interested in her and had asked a lot of questions. She just felt comfortable talking with them.  They reminded her so much of her parents. She had given them her nickname and her real name.

Marla told her she should tell her parents about these strangers, but DeeGee absolutely refused to since her parents were always so protective of her.  She told Marla it was time for her to make her own decisions about who her friends, or boyfriends would be.

She laughed at the possibility of maybe one day marrying someone with the same last name as hers.

  1. Oh, nice bit of foreshadowing there at the end. Not that I think she’ll marry one of them, but what if she falls in love only to find out he’s her brother… Good job!
