The weather was nice. Yes, it was cold but a barbeque outside was a really nice idea. I saw Simon, talking to the staff who was setting up the barbeque equipements while Veronica was setting up the dishes and Chelsea right next to her helping her. I walked up to them, ad stood right before her, excited.

"So? What can I do?" I asked and Chelsea forwarded a knife and chopping board.

"Can you help me dice the veg-"

"I can do that. You should help Simon with the grill, " Veronica said as she took the chopping board and I shrugged, "Alright!"

I walked back to where Simon was and helped him install the equipment and we took a wet cloth to clean it off. The resort staff provided us all the ingredients required for the barbeque and left us alone as we prepared for it when I looked back at Chelsea to find her standing there with Veronica staring at the dish that she was making.

"So how long has it been since you two know each other?"

I heard Simon as I looked back at him to find him greasing the grills with oil. He was in his late fifties or maybe already sixty for he was definitely good looking for his age. My dad was fit and still looked way better for his age.

"I know her from school time. She used to save me from bullies back then, " I said as I reminiscent those days thinking about Veronica and I fought for the ways she fought with everyone but I was also thankful that she would always be around me, worrying about me.

"What? Bullies? That petite girl protected you from bullies?" Simon choked as he used the spatula to point Chelsea and then I understood, he was actually asking about Chelsea.

"No, Veronica. Veronica used to protect me from bullies and Chelsea was the bully, actually, " I said when Simon gave out a side smile and looked back at Chelsea and Veronica.

"That petite girl used to bully you?" he laughed and even though I wanted to roll my eyes, I didn't for the sake of Veronica.

"She was taller than me back then and she used to bully me with her friends. Veronica was a quite, intelligent but a rebel girl back then, while I was a nerd, stuffed my head with books all the time and stayed away from fighting and crowds, "

"Really? I can actually agree with Veronica being a rebel but its hard to believe that you got bullied by a girl, " he joked and laughed.

"You were a nerd, so that means you loved books?" he asked and I nodded.

"I still do. I am actually a scientist, " I told him and his eyes widened as he looked my way. "Scientist? Then how come Veronica was in your school? She did her studies in commerce right?" he asked and I nodded not wanting to disclose things which Veronica had possibly not told him.

Irony. She is getting married to this man in two or three days and he

d Simon swaying to an old song, grilling the food.

"Don't mind Veronica. She is just like this from the beginning but she is really a -"

"I know and I'm not really complaining. I'm just upset with myself and my lack of quick thinking. And I also know that it will take time for me to change my impressions. Do you know Veronica beat me like hell, when I threw gum on your hair?" she laughed looking nervous as she remembered the day.

"I know she is your friend and she has been very protective of you from the very beginning but it will take time for her to understand that I have changed and warm up to me. I am not really dragging things but I really want her to warm up to me, " she said which made me sigh in relief.

"You know what? You are more mature than what I have thought. You actually impress me, " I joked and that finally made her smile.

"Why thank you! Should I take it as a compliment?" she raised her eyebrow standing on her tip toe but still not reaching my height which made me laugh as I shook my head and leaned back.

"Of course, " I spoke as I raised my hand to uffle my hand when all of a sudden I heard the sound of glass breaking and I looked to find Simon running up to Veronica. As I saw it from afar, I saw her hand bleeding with pieces of glass stuck in it.

"Veronica are you alright?" Simon looked worried and in no minute, I was already running towards her and as soon as I reached there, I took her hand in mine and looked at the pieces of glass stuck in it.

"Oh my god!" I heard Chelsea as she ran to bring the first aid box.

Veronica's eyes were bloodshot red, as if she was crying but hardly showed any emotions but smiled when she looked at me.

"The glass was broken, as soon as I picked it up, it- it broke, " she clarified and I shook my head gobsmacked by what I was seeing.
