"Do you realize...Smed and I have been together over a year now." Megan informed Caitlin in the clearance section at Sweet Deals in the mall.
"Wow," Caitlin didn't make it sound that big, but maybe..a little. "That long? Really?" She squinted thinking the time felt longer with Zeke, like a decade. "Kind of feels like yesterday, you know." She tried to make light of it, as she looked at summer tops that were big enough to be dresses on her short little body.
"What do you think I should do?" Megan wanted to know.
"What do you want to do?" Caitlin had nothing exciting to say. She and Zeke were finally coming to terms with their own disappointments. They were thinking of going on a camping trip. Maybe finding love in the wild.
"I dunno. Should we buy rings or something." Megan shrugged.
"How about tattoos?" Caitlin tossed out as if this were a task for getting games together at a carnival.
"OH MY GOD! Do you think he'd go for that?" Megan was suddenly ecstatic as if it were the best idea, ever.
Caitlin just glared at Megan wondering just what had she started.
