Memories Can Go A Long Way (Extended Version)

Chapter Text

Shortly after Stacie, her mom, and Bella moved to Trenton, Lily/Esther was finishing up sewing a dress, when she received a call from Flo.

"Hey, Flo," Esther said, answering

"Hey, Lily..." Flo said.

"Flo, remember, I go by Esther now," she said, correcting Flo.

"Sorry. So, Esther, I have some big news," Flo said.

"Me too. You go first," Esther said.

"Okay. My fruit truck business just got a new location," Flo announced.

"Awesome! As for me, I’m moving to Providence because that’s where I’m opening up my new seamstress shop," Esther said.

"No way! That's where my fruit truck business is going," Flo said, excited.

"That is so cool!" Esther said, excited.

"Yeah. When are you heading to Providence?" Flo asked.

"About two weeks," Esther said.

“That sounds great!” Flo said. 

“Yeah. What would you say about the idea of being roommates? I mean, I already got a one bedroom apartment, but I can ask the landlord if I can get a two bedroom instead," Esther offered.

"Well, if you do that, it’ll save me the need of having to find a place. Not only that, but it’ll save me money," Flo said.

"Wonderful. I look forward to seeing you soon," Esther said.

"Ditto," Flo said.

"Later," Esther said, hanging up.

Two weeks later, they met up at the Providence airport before taking a cab to their new apartment.

Thirty minutes later, Esther and Flo arrived at their new apartment. 

"I got to hand it to you, Esther. This place could definitely work," Flo said, noticing the amount of space inside.

"I’m so glad I was able to get that bigger place with two bedrooms and that there’s plenty of space inside for all of our stuff," Esther happily said.

"What do you say we chillax for a bit before we unload our luggage," Flo suggested.

"Sounds good to me. I had a rather long flight and I could relax for a bit," Esther said.

Esther and Flo sat on the couch watching TV until sunset. At that point, they finally decided to unload their luggage into their new bedrooms.

Once they were done unpacking for the day, the two Bella roommates got ready for bed.

"So, any idea where your new seamstress business is going to be?" Flo asked.

"I have a general idea. It’ll be somewhere on the south side of town. What about your fruit truck business?" Esther asked.

"I should know by tomorrow," Flo said.

"Me too," Esther said. They shared a yawn.

"For now, I'm going to get some sleep. Good night, Esther," Flo said.

"Good night, Flo," Esther said as the two went to bed for the night.
