"Hey, Harriet, glad you could come!" Natalie said, reaching for me to give me a hug.
"What were you doing?"
I heard a familiar voice, and I knew who it belonged to -- the one and only Meredith Hopkins.
"Why'd you invite HER to this party?"
"It's my party," Natalie said, "I invite who I want."
I didn't even bother staying long enuf for them to cut the cake and do the other stuff. I decided I'd had enuf of Meredith and left.
