“We’ve been down this route before.” Angeline said as they walked away from yet another store without a dress.
“Yeah, but things have changed.” Melanie said firmly, “Besides, that last one didn’t look half bad!”
“Oh you’re kidding yourself.” Angeline snorted and they kept walking.
Melanie liked the bustle of people on the streets, the way they were so close and most people didn’t even realize anyone else was there. She supposed she could do without the honking of buses and yelling of people on phones, but it was nice enough. It was nice enough to have that small happiness. It was nice enough to have Jeremy.
“You’ll have the perfect wedding.” Melanie sighed, “Brendan’s so good at finding what you like.”
“Want to know a bit of advice?” Angeline asked, raising a brow at her.
“A piece of your holy wisdom? Of course I do.”
“Shut up and listen.” Angeline laughed, “Wait for the ones who’ll wait.”
“But won’t we both just be waiting, then?” Melanie pointed out, just to be smart.
“Maybe for a while,” She looked away, “but eventually you won’t be able to ignore it.”
“Someone I can’t ignore, huh? I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for that.”
“Melanie, you really can be an idiot sometimes.” Angeline sighed.
Melanie let out a bubble of laughter and spun round, giggling, “I strive to be different.”
