The Angel Quilt Shoppe: The Ladies on Honeysuckle Road
“Well, are you just going to stand there or invite me in?” The grin enlarged as she peeked past Beth and discovered that her vision had been accurate. “It looks like I’m arriving in the nick of time to rescue you from the fate of being swallowed by half filled packing boxes! Come with me, there’s a couch in the lobby of your building that’s calling our names. We can sit and enjoy our coffee and donuts while you tell me all about what needs to be accomplished today.” Hillary guided her friend to the elevator and pushed the button for the ground floor. Beth stood beside her with her mouth half open and tears welling up in her eyes. If she even considered speaking she knew without a doubt that she’d be sobbing hysterically so she closed her mouth and took in a deep breath, hoping that would calm her. The elevator ride was quick and almost enough time for Beth to feel composed. As they sat down on the couch, Beth turned to her best friend and let a small tear run down her cheek. “You know you’ve always been so psychic about me. Your timing is perfect. I was about ready to light a match to everything and run screaming into traffic!”
Chuckling at her friend’s description Hillary nodded and grabbed her hand, “It’s going to be alright. I’m here now and there are reinforcements on their way. Marla and Monica and Veronica will be here very soon and we’ll finish packing, organize and label every single box with enough time left over that we can go out and take in a play tonight. Is there anything good playing at the Boston Theater tonight?” Beth sat on the couch holding her cup of coffee and listening to her friend carry on like everything was handled and there was time to go to the theatre for a play! Her mind couldn’t even consider that line of thinking! Being an accountant Beth was used to numbers that added up and totaled exactly, but having everything packed, organized and ready to go plus having time to relax at the theatre sounded like 2 + 2 = 49.
