All the parents had taken time off from work to attend the meeting, while the children were left at the playground with the younger adults. At the playground, Glad-Bag and friends were using one set of the swings.
“Did you realise that the holidays are practically over?” Dulci asked.
“Yea, sometimes I wonder where the time went,” Lay-lay said.
“I know,” said Dulci.
“It seemed like just yesterday I was helping my mother move in,” said Yap-yap.
“It felt like I just walked into this playground and started swinging for the first time,” added Glad-Bag.
“I heard Granny say that time waits on no one, she was right,” Lay-lay said.
“It was short but I wouldn’t change it, even if I could,” said Dulci.
“Yea, we had some good times,” said Glad-Bag.
“Hear you all talking like it’s good bye or something. None of us are moving to Africa tomorrow; it’s not the end of the world, it’s just the end of the holidays,” Yap-yap said.
They all laughed.
“I think we should make a pact,” said Dulci, “that we’ll always be friends.”
“I agree,” said Glad-Bag.
“Even if one of us moves to Africa,” said Lay-lay.
“Yes I,” said Yap-yap, “Even if one of us moves to Africa.”
They gave each other one of those corny group hugs but didn’t feel awkward about it.
Granny came over just in time to see them hugging. She commented at how sweet they looked and asked what the occasion was. They told her it was nothing, but she knew otherwise.
