Three days to go

 

Three days to go.

 

I get them all round. Friends since I-don’t-know-when. We order pizza, paint our toenails violent red, sing along to Nina Simone.

First bottle of wine, they tell me how happy I look. I pick at a slice of pepperoni; try not to grin too smugly.

Second bottle, we’re poring over photos of boyfriends-past, hooting with laughter.

Sixth bottle, suddenly they round on me. Snap the music off.

‘Actually, we wanted to talk to you. Jess…are you certain he’s the right one for you?’

Pepperoni lodges in my throat and the room spins.

 

Three days to go.

    Dear Rebecca,

    Bachelorette party I presume? Sounds about right. Hopefully, after her hangover clears she’ll be ready to walk down the aisle. Well done.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

      Yes indeed, bachelorette party. Or, as it’s known in the UK – hen party! She MAY be ready to walk down the aisle in three days…or her friends may have given her somethign very real to think about!
