44. Maria's Childhood Friend (B)


Mary: Maria, is that you?
Maria: Yes, the one and only! How have you been?
Mary: I've been good. How are you?
Maria: I'm great. Thank you for saying yes to lunch. We have so much to catch up on.
Mary: Yes, we definitely do.
Maria: Please take a seat.
(Mary sits down with Maria at the table)
Mary: I remembered you told me about Mike the last time we spoke. You two are married?
Maria: No we're not married.
Mary: Not yet at least.
Maria: I don't know about that.
Mary: Why do you say that? Are you not sure you would want to marry him?
Maria: It's not that I don't want to marry him. Believe me, I love Mike with all my heart, and I would love nothing more than to be his wife.

Mary: Then what is the matter? Is it him? Doesn't he love you, too?
Maria: I have no doubt that Mike loves me. What I do have doubts about is whether he is ready to settle down with me. Marriage is a big commitment and I'm just not sure if that's something Mike is ready to do.
Mary: I understand what you are saying, Maria. But believe me, when you know someone who truly loves you, you know he's ready to share the rest of his life with you.
Maria: I hear you, Mary. I'll just have to wait and see what happens.
Mary: I'm sure Mike will propose to you.
Maria: I'm in no hurry.
(Maria and Mary share a nice lunch and reminisce about high school days.)
