Friday Fiction: Angst...

"NO - I - WILL - NOT - DO - THAT - AGAIN!" Ellie pounded her best friend, a three foot tall teddy bear named Archie.

"Calm down," her real life BFF, Cassandra, said as she walked in. "Your mom said you were pissed."

Ellie looked up, eyes wide. "Mom said that?"

"Maybe it was more like upset but I could tell you were PO'd from her expression. What's up? Alan again?" She plopped on the bed beside Ellie.

"Not this time." She buried her head in Archie's neck and sobbed.

Putting her arm around Ellie, Cassandra softly asked, "What is it? What happened?"

Wiping her face on Archie's fur, she inhaled and held her breath for a moment before whispering, "I will not do it again."

"What? C'mon, give! What are you talking about? You know you can tell me anything. I'm your best friend, aren't I?"

Ellie nodded with a sigh. "You are but I'm too embarrassed." She nestled her head against Archie's.

Cassandra reached over and shook her friend. "Tell me or I won't stop! Nothing you could do would embarrass me. So TELL ME!" She continued shaking Ellie until both collapsed on the bed laughing.

"Okay, I'll tell. But you have to promise not to ever - I mean EVER - tell anyone else."

"Cross my heart and hope to die, stick a needle in my eye." For good measure she held out her little finger. "Pinky swear!"

She leaned in close and whispered, "I kissed David."

"On the lips?"


"What did he do?"

"He wiped it off and ran away. I'm never going to do that again."

"Kiss David?"

"Kiss ANYONE!"

Twelve years later, Cassandra was the maid of honor at Ellie's wedding. As Ellie handed over her bouquet Cassandra whispered, "Bet you're going to kiss David on the lips today!"
