“Oh hey, Tess. No - it’s nice to see you,” Raine smiled, when Tess checked she wasn’t disturbing her. She was glad for the opportunity to catch up with her friend. Things hadn’t been so great for Tess during the summer. Raine had been sorry to hear about her sister - personally, she hated hospitals and doctors, and the thought of all summer in such a place just made her insides squirm. It must have been so horrible and scary for everyone in Tess’s family. She wasn’t really sure what to say to Tess about it, but Raine liked to think that she made a good listener. She tried to think about how people might be feeling, and just let them sort of talk it all out.

“How is everything?” she asked. She didn’t like to ask too directly, because maybe Tess had got her mind off things for a bit, or just didn’t want to talk about them right now. Raine thought she should give her the chance to talk about it, in case she needed or wanted to, but not push it with a question that forced the subject to come up.

“Um. I try to. I tend to do it more when I feel like I need to, whereas it’d probably be good to just do it as a regular routine. Would you like to know about it?” she asked, when Tess said she wasn’t really familiar with meditation. Some people would probably have just launched straight into an explanation but Raine liked to know people were really interested before she took to her soapbox.

          Tess decided to answer her question fully. Raine steeled herself, ready for Tess to say difficult things where she might not know the right thing to say in response. She’d asked her, after all, and... more

            Raine was such a good friend. There was something very relieving about being able to say what she was thinking, sure that Raine wouldn’t judge her for it. And more than that, Raine knew exactly what... more
