“Oh!  Hello.  I didn’t expect to see you here.”

“Same.  It really is a small world, isn’t it?”

“Yeah…  So, uh, what brings you across the Atlantic to London?”

“Just a little vacation.  Trying to get away from everything for a bit.  You?”

“Pretty much that.  Thought I could forget things for awhile.”


“Uh huh.”

“Well, I should leave you to it…”

“This is silly.  We’re both here.  You might as well sit for a spell.  Visit a little.  Two foreigners alone in a strange place.  Old friends.  Why not have a cup of coffee…  Unless you have someplace else to be…”

“No.  Just didn’t want to intrude on your time.”

“It’s okay.  Really.”

“Old friends, huh?”

“What would you call us?”

“I don’t know.  Something more complicated, I think.”


“So…  how’s your mom?”

“Well, things have been a little rough on her since dad died.”

“I heard.  I’m so sorry.”

“It’s okay.  After the scare…  back when we were…  well, we had him with us for longer than we expected.  So that’s something to be grateful for.”

“I suppose that’s true.”

“How about your family?”

“They’re the same.  As always.  Nothing’s really changed since you last saw them.”

“That’s good.  Right?”

“Sure.  I guess.”

“… This is awkward, isn’t it?”

“Yeah.  It was nice seeing you.  I’m glad you’re well, but I should let you be.”

“Alright.  Take care.”

“You too.”
