[Flash Fiction] Sisterhood

They arrived first: one Chinese girl checking their reservation with the host and one Indian girl checking her frizzy hair in a pocket mirror.

“Stupid humidity—every time,” she groaned as they were shown to their table.

“Do you think she’ll show up?” the Asian girl asked. “Probably not, right? It’s been five years since we’ve talked.”

“Yeah, but we were best friends for five years before that—ow—that poke hurt!”

“She’s here!”

They locked gazes with a Hispanic girl dressed in a chic black outfit. Exchanging tentative smiles, they picked up their friendship where they left off.

  1. For some reason I imagined Rosema, you and I while reading your story Jade. Awwee.. I miss flash fictions and writing in general.. with you and everyone here.

    Haha. Apologies for stalking. I’ve been in and out of blogosphere.

    • Aww that is so sweet of you! One day, I can’t wait to meet both you and Rosema 💜

      No apology needed for the stalking! I’ve only recently returned to a regular blogging routine here on WordPress myself 🙂


    • That is very well said, and I agree, social media has definitely changed the way we view friendship, although I’d like to be optimistic about it and see it as social media giving us a chance to connect with people we otherwise would never have met 🙂

      Thank you for reading and leaving an insightful comment, Keith!

  2. these are the friendships that have stood the test of time, no awkwardness, just easing into the conversation. i read last night three is a good number for friendships, it is strengthened by the bond of each individual in pairs and thus makes the bond between the three an experience of the other two as well, oh i hope i have made myself clear! good flash and lovely to see this from you after a time away! full speed away dear Jade!

    • I don’t think I’ve heard that before, that 3 is a good number for friendships, but in my personal experience, I can attest that it’s a good number indeed 🙂 You definitely make yourself clear and I thank you for your wise and perceptive input 💜
