Ten years had passed since Fannie and her friend Laura left school. Fannie used
to wonder how Laura was until they chanced upon
each other in the market one day.
Fannie promised to visit Laura the coming
Sunday morning. So on the appointed day, Fannie drove her car into the housing
estate where Laura lived. Ten years was a long time and the once-familiar
surroundings had changed drastically. Everything seemed strange. Fannie tried to
look for familiar landmarks but she could not see any.
She drove in the direction that she thought was the way to Laura's house, but
the more she drove the more she realized that she did not know where she was.
She was lost. It was incredible how she could lose her way in a place that once
she knew like the back of her hand, but the fact remained that she was lost.
There was only one thing to do, and that was to call Laura and ask for help.
Thank God for the mobile phone. She parked her car by a mini market and made the
call to Laura. Laura said she would come to the mini market.
A few minutes later, Laura appeared in her car. Fannie was very relieved. She
followed Laura to her house where the two friends renewed their friendship over
a cup of tea.
