My best day ever 5/5

Sara couldn’t wait to tell her friend Lerato about the new guy she’d met at the library.

She smiled and added, “You didn’t have to show me the way, know. Won’t you get home late?” Tshepo laughed and said, “No, I’m going somewhere this side too.”

Then Sara recognised the shop Lerato had told her about. She quickly yelled to the driver, “The shop!” The driver looked at her as though she was stupid. “Huh?” “Short right,” Tshepo cut in.

As they got off and the taxi sped away, Sara glanced at Tshepo. “I’m embarrassed enough, so please don’t rub it in.” He laughed. “I wasn’t going to . . .” “You didn’t have to get off with me,” she said. “Well, I wanted to make sure you wouldn’t get lost. And it’s perfect for me because I live in this street.” They started walking up the road, to find Lerato waiting eagerly at her front gate.  “What a nice pair you make!” she said. And Tshepo said, “Lerato, this is . . .” But Lerato cut him off. “I know your wonder-woman, she’s my best friend! Sara, let me introduce you to my cousin, Tshepo Jack Nkabinde!” Sara and Tshepo looked at each other in amazement, while Lerato was seized by a fit of the giggles.

They spoke the same words simultaneously: “So you knew?” Lerato nodded, still chuckling. “He was going on about this amazing girl he’d met called Sara – it was so boring!”

Sara pulled out her phone and read out the SMS she had received from Lerato: “Can’t w8 4 u 2 get here – hav a surprise 4 u! The persn sitin nxt 2 u likes u!”

Tshepo burst out laughing and told Sara, “That was the same SMS I got from my mischievous cousin here!” “I’m not mischievous! It was fun. My best cousin ever and my best friend – I just had to make sure you guys got together!” Sara put her left arm round Lerato and her right arm round Tshepo’s waist.

“That was the best SMS I’ve ever received,” she said.
