Two best buddies, Evelyn and Tessy, lived together, shared a perfect love and cared so much about each other. They had every beautiful thing a woman should have but did not have stable relationships with men. There was always a fault in every guy they met. The men were either ungenerous, uncaring, or smug. So, they decided to visit a shopping mall one Saturday evening to get groceries. On arriving at the mall, Evelyn who complained of cramps decided to wait inside the car.
A few minutes later a tall, dark and handsome guy stepped out of his car, Evelyn who was in paid didn’t see him when she stepped out of the car. The young man, who had noticed the beautiful young lady, decided to walk towards her. “Hey! You are a pretty girl; I am Peter, nice to meet you”.
“I am Evelyn and it's a pleasure to meet you.” Evelyn stretched her hand forward for a handshake.
“I will love to have your number for some other time.”
“No worries.” Evelyn couldn't control her excitement as they exchanged contacts.
Peter moved on to the mall while Evelyn anticipated Tessy’s arrival. Tessy, who was busy with a shopping cart accidentally hit a young man. “Oh. I am sorry, pardon me.
“That’s alright, I am Peter and I can help you with that.”
“I am Tessy, that is thoughtful of you.”
Peter smiled at Tessy's reaction as they continued with their shopping. Tessy discovered that she was running late so they exchanged numbers as they bid each other goodbye.
Evelyn, who had been waiting impatiently for Tessy’s arrival, jumped out of the car. “I’ve been waiting for you, I met my perfect match tonight.”
Tessy told Evelyn that she had also met her perfect match.
The two friends laughed as they drove out of the mall.
Evelyn spent most of her time with her new online buddy. They chatted, flirted and shared their dreams.
Tessy, on the other hand, went on weekend outings with her new man. Peter didn't stop sending Evelyn messages while taking Tessy out every weekend to different fun parks. It was close to a month later when Evelyn decided to meet Peter once more after their meeting at the mall. Peter decided on a Saturday for the meeting after cancelling his date with Tessy.
Tessy and Evelyn woke up very early to get things in place. They both decided to wear the same outfit, to display how lovely they were. The doorbell rang, and Tessy rushed to the door to see who was there. To her big surprise it was Peter. Peter was dumbfounded, he couldn't utter a word. “Hello, darling! It's nice to see you again.” Evelyn hugged and kissed him without noticing what was going on. Peter who was uncomfortable didn't know what to say or do. He rushed out of the house. The two friends became more confused, as they couldn’t understand what had happened. They both slept in confusion that night hoping that they would wake up in the following morning and find out it was all a dream.
