Why am I always taking time off for my friends? First, it was Lilly and the awful pink. Now it's Jessica and the attorney.
I didn't want to go. I didn't think they would let me into the room anyway, seeing as I'm not a relative. I had to stay in the waiting room with Mackenzie.
I looked around the room and immediately felt uncomfortable. It was like a doctor's office, nicely decorated and clean but you know nothing nice is going on behind the closed doors. We were the only ones there.
I grabbed a magazine off the side table and tried reading. They were business magazines and I immediately felt stupid. Note to self: I need to get more educated on current events.
After what seemed like forever, Jessica came out of the attorney's office, tissue in hand, again crying.
"So did you go through with it?"
She shook her head yes and bare got out a verbal response. "I did it. The paperwork is going to be filed."
I was happy for her. She did the right thing.
