Wendy and her best friend, Cindy, had saved for this vacation.
They had argued over which hotel, when to fly, on what airline, how long to stay, it was a really happy kind of confrontation.
They both began working at the same place at the same time, and made up their minds to save every cent they could to go on a fabulous Caribbean vacation.
They found the cheapest fares, they bought their bathing suits in the winter, on sale, and had agreed at this day, this time, this place.
Then, Cindy started dating Jack and as is writ in stone, a boyfriend takes precedence, so, Cindy was not going. This meant that if Wendy went, she went alone.
So, she went alone.
