Should Have Stopped There

Jeff

“Of course Tracy would be the one to have a double chocolate wedding cake. So much for tradition.”

Mai

(laughs) “Yeah, she made me help her pick it out. Almost went for a stack of brownies instead.

Jeff

“It’s been years since I last saw you, Jack. How you doing?”

Mai

“I go by Mai now, and I’m doing alright. What about you?

Jeff

“Oh, right. You switched teams on us. That dress suits you by the way.

Mai

Thanks…

Jeff

I’m the owner of a big business now so I am doing exceptionally well. What’s your job? Didn’t you want to be a fashion designer?”

Mai

That’s Tracy. She owns her own fashion line now. Me on the other hand, I’m a novelist.

Jeff

Really? Ah, that’s right. Your toast was good by the way.

Mai

Thanks.

Jeff

First prom queen, now maid of honor. Switching genders really worked for you. I nominated you for that by the way. Prom queen, I mean.

Mai

Yeah, I remember.

Jeff

Not going to thank me?

Mai

Tracy’s the one who helped me win.

Jeff

Uh huh, after I nominated you. But whatever. I’m surprised you two are still friends after all this time. Well, I guess I’m more surprised that she’s even still around. Shouldn’t she be-

Mai

She’s in remission. Lately she’s been doing better.

Jeff

Yeah. I was really surprised when Tom sent me the invitation. Not because he was sending it. I mean, we were good friends in high school. But what a shock to see the bride to be. Like seeing a ghost.

Mai

That’s not funny.

Jeff

Oh what? Oh no, I wasn’t making a joke. Uh, yeah that sounded a little… insensitive.

Mai

A little?
