reverb10 Prompt: Friends

Prompt: Friendship. How has a friend changed you or your perspective on the world this year? Was this change gradual, or a sudden burst?

“They are going to have a baby,” he says as we drive away from their place.

“Yes.”

We sit in silence, awed.

“I’m so happy for them! I might even learn to change a diaper.”

“They are going to have a baby.”

“Yes.”

“But…”

“But they are like us? Is that what you are thinking?”

“Yes. Someone I’ve known since I was two is going to have a child.”

“Don’t worry. It won’t change everything.”

“It will. It will change everything.”

“They will be themselves, just with a baby.”

“Promise?”

“You’ll see.”
