We Have to Talk

Stephanie peeked through the vertical blinds, watching her mother’s car pull away until it disappeared around the corner. Her best friend Kate was sitting cross-legged on the living-room floor studying the entertainment section of the newspaper. Stephanie and Kate, both seventeen, had been best friends for seven years. Summer vacation was nearly over for the two girls and their senior year was about to start. Avoiding eye contact she said, “We have to talk.”

Those four words were among the most serious spoken between the two friends. Both knew that the topic to follow was important. They had used the phrase only a few times. Once had been during their sophomore year for Kate to announce that she trusted Christ as her Savior. Stephanie was so impressed with the change in her friend that she began attending church with her and trusted Christ two months later. Kate didn't know what was happening but she knew it had to be important. To be continued.
