The reunion

 
Four and a half years is a long time for teenagers. We tend to forget a lot of things. I certainly could not remember very much about my primary schoolmates, save for a few. Now, I was going to meet them all again.

My friend sent me the invitation via Facebook. He said that he was organizing a reunion for our Standard 6 class. After our primary school education ended, everyone went their separate ways. We promised to keep in touch but as everyone got busier and made new friends, the promise was forgotten. Now, Vinesh was arranging a reunion. As the day drew closer, I became curious about how my old friends might have changed. Would Jing, the class clown still be as playful? Would Sumi the tallest girl in our class then still hold that record now?

The reunion was held at a pizza restaurant. I was the first to arrive after Vinesh. We chatted while waiting for the rest. A few minutes later, I saw a tall slim Indian young lady making a beeline for us. It was Sumitra. She had grown even taller but I was pleased to note that she no longer towered over me. We were of equal height. Within minutes, the rest of the group had turned up. There were loud exclamations of disbelief at how much we had changed. The group grew so noisy that other diners at the restaurant started casting disapproving looks at us.

We quietened down as the food was served. But it was impossible to remain quiet for long with Jing around. There were a couple of times where I choked on my food because he was so witty. However, the group did turn silent when someone shared the sad news about his father's business closing down. We all said some words of comfort and encouragement which cheered him up. We asked one another for news about our primary school teachers. This led to a suggestion that we visit our old school. Everyone supported the idea and soon, plans were made for the visit.

We were all reluctant to say goodbye because we were enjoying ourselves so much. The reunion helped us rediscover our friends. We promised to keep in touch and this time, we made up our minds to keep that promise.
