“I’m fine”, she responded flatly.

“We’ve missed you around these parts!” said the old friends group, “Where have you been hiding?”

“I’ve been…around. Just busy, I guess.” She said looking through them.

“Well, let’s get together for lunch next week. It’d be so great to catch up with you.” the ladies agreed in unison.

Impassively she responded,
“That sounds fun.”

Not knowing where to look she stared straight ahead and waved good bye.

Desperately holding her emotions in check she turned and walked in the opposite direction.

She wondered what they would think if she confessed what she truly felt.

It was a pointless exercise to do so. They wouldn’t get it.

She’s “fine”.
