Sometimes It Is Not Easy...

It was a cold afternoon and Tara invited Jane because they haven't met since Christmas.

Tara brought Jane a cup of hot red fruit tea. They sit down in the living room and began to talk about the holidays.

Tara: Now it is time to tell you something important. I didn't want it by phone... So... On New Year's Eve... Colin asked me to marry.
Jane: Oh, Tara!! What did you answer??
Tara: Well... I said yes! Of course yes!!

Jane: Tara! I am so happy for you! Congratulation!!
Tara: Thank you my dear!

Jane: The best news I could imagine! But I feel something different, too. Aren't you the happiest person in the world now? What's wrong?

Tara: Well, I am afraid a little bit.
Jane: Afraid of what? Colin? The marriage? The wedding? Life together?
Tara: Oh no, never. I am happy, really, this is what I want. But...
Jane: Yes?
Tara: I am afraid of what his family will think about us.

Jane: You were together at Christmas, weren't you? How was it?
Tara: His father, Robert was really kind. His younger sister is a sweet girl I think although we couldn't speak a lot. But his mother... Victoria was polite but nothing more. Sometimes I felt she was nervous and looked at me so oddly... She was so cold. I don't know why.
Jane: That is strange. Maybe she have just realised that her son is never more her little child... Maybe it is just a bit jealousy...
Tara: I don't know, Jane... As if she had some problem with me and not with the situation...

Tara couldn't finish because Summer came in suddenly.
Summer: Tara, I am... Oh, hello, Jane!
Jane: Hello Summer!
Tara: Hello, Sum! What is the matter?

Summer: Er... Nothing. I am just going to the market and would like to ask if I can buy something for you...
Tara: No, thanks. But why don't you stay for a while?
Summer: No, thanks. I am in a hurry.

Summer: See you later!
Jane: Bye!
Tara: Oh...

Jane: What was that? Tara, is Summer okay?
Tara: I don't think so...
Jane: Is it because I am here?

Tara: Exactly, I am afraid...
Jane: Please, tell me.
Tara: Jane, I don't want to hurt you. I hope I won't if I tell you something.
Jane: Is it the day of surprises? Tell me, it won't hurt.
Tara: I think Summer felt in love with Mark.

Jane: With Mark? My ex-husband?
Tara: Yes. They met at Christmas, on a concert.
Jane: Well, that isn't so bad news...
Tara: But I think Summer is very sad. She saw him with another girl...

Jane: Okay, it is his life. I am with Charles, and after two years it is time to find himself a new girlfriend. I would be really happy to hear that he is happy, too!
Tara: Oh, I calmed down now. But Summer didn't...
Jane: I am so sorry for her. Mark is a very handsome man... I understand her feelings. I just don't know why Mark didn't told me that...

Jane: And don't be afraid, Colin's mother will be very happy and proud of you on the wedding!
Tara: Thanks for your words!
Jane: Now I have to go but please come tomorrow to talk about your plans for the wedding day!

On the way home Jane was thinking about Summer and Mark, until...

Jane: Oh, no! I can't believe it! There, this is Mark and a girl!

Jane: They are heading to the market... Poor Summer, I hope they won't meet.

Jane: She is so familiar...

Jane: I didn't remember...

Jane: It is better to go home, as quickly as I can. Maybe Mark will tell me something if it gets more serious.

So here they are: Mark and a blonde girl... Do You remember who she is and why so familiar to Jane? ;)

  3. Congrats to Tara. Hopefully she can be at peace with his mother. Those can be touch situations. Poor Summer. Nothing like falling for a guy who is still dating other women.

    1. Thank You, Vanessa! Tara needs to preserve her calmness and Summer have to be brave, so they can reach what they really want. Two important things in life... We'll see :)

  5. Who is this stranger? Now Im intrigued!

    1. :) Well, this stranger is my 'Barbie as an architect' doll (http://lifeinrosemaryhill.blogspot.hu/2013/07/barbie-as-architect.html), and she played the role of a waitress in The Blue Owl, where Jane and Charles had their first date last September :))) Here she is: http://lifeinrosemaryhill.blogspot.hu/2013/09/friday-night-part-two.html
      So that is why was she so familiar to Jane... :D

  6. Hajrá, hajrá! Remélem, Summer szerelme nem marad viszonzatlan! A hölgy nem véletlen egy építész Barbie ? ;)

    1. Igen, igen, eltaláltad!!! :) És elárulom, azért volt olyan ismerős Jane-nek, mert ő volt a pincérnő a Kék Bagolyban, ahol Jane és Charles először randiztak :)))

      Summer-rel egy kicsit gondban leszek, úgy érzem... Vajon mennyire komolyak az érzései? És Marknak a pincérnő iránt? És mi lesz a pincérnővel??? :D No, majd meglátjuk, mi sül ki ebből... :)
