CHAPTER TWO HUNDRED and TEN
“Great,” Delphie said. “Lunch, yarn and then…”
“Wedding,” Dionne said.
“Valerie said her designer could make a dress for Yvonne,” Delphie said. “Plus, the designer brings a bunch of clothes with her. Yvonne’s so tiny. She could fit into almost anything. And Val needs a dress for the premiere of her action movie. We could play today and stop off at the Castle later…”
“And get custom fitted with designer dresses?” Maresol asked. “I’m in.”
“Me too,” Dionne said. “It’s been forever since I’ve had something really nice.”
“Me too. I’m wearing Tanni’s clothes,” Yvonne’s voice was soft and sad. She looked from one friend’s face to the next. “But… I’m free today and…”
Yvonne beamed a smile.
“Let’s just have fun,” Yvonne said.
“I was thinking the Brown Palace for lunch,” Dionne said. “How does that sound?”
“I bet Sandy could fit us in to get our hair done,” Delphie said.
“That girl is always booked,” Maresol said.
“I have to schedule a month out,” Dionne said.
“I bet she’d have time if Yvonne calls,” Delphie said.
“I bet she will,” Dionne dug in her bag for her phone.
“Ok,” Yvonne took Dionne’s phone from her. Dionne showed her how to scroll down the list and call Sandy. She chatted with Sandy for a few minutes before Yvonne looked up, “Three o’clock? Can we make three?”
The women nodded.
“We’ll be there,” Yvonne said. “Thanks!”
Sandy must have said something sweet because Yvonne sniffed and wiped her eyes before she thanked Sandy again and hung up. She stared out the front windshield for a moment before turning around.
“Lunch, yarn, hair, then dresses?” Yvonne beamed.
“And whatever the hell else we want to do!” Maresol laughed.
“You should write that down,” Delphie said to Yvonne.
Nodding, Yvonne took out her book.
“What should I put?” Yvonne asked.
“We can do whatever the hell we want,” Maresol said.
Yvonne wrote that down.
