Wendy more than appreciated Cindy's friendship. Two friends who stuck together and were there for each other.
But, Wendy was conservative and didn't feel she fit when Cindy invited her somewhere. Going with her now was not something she wanted, but Cindy wanted her to go so she goes. All she could think of was how awkward and uncomfortable she's about to feel.
A Woman in Search Of...
The warmth of the bath water soothed Wendy, and she put her head back and closed her eyes, fully relaxed. Realizing she wasn’t always accommodating with Cindy’s suggestions, she needed to let Cindy know how much Wendy appreciated her friendship and how she knew Cindy would be here for her. Wendy needed to be there for Cindy too. Finally, she stepped out, dried herself. She selected a pair of brown slacks to wear with a beige, long sleeved high cut blouse. Wendy tucked the blouse in, adding a brown belt. She removed the hair clips from the sides of her thick auburn hair and brushed it out. Recently she decided to let her bangs grow out, so they disappeared into the rest of her hair. Cindy was outside the back of her building dressed in a mini skirt with a short overtop, known as a crop top. It hit just above her waist. She wore knee high boots and looked very “in.” Wendy always accepted Cindy’s free-spirited styles. She, however, never cared much about being “in.” Her more conservative, comfortable wardrobe looked how most of her customers dressed, although she did wear jeans and tee shirts. Regular slacks with a jacket were also comfortable.
