Fifteen


Three girls per bottle of cheap wine, as if their budgets or livers could handle anything more at that age. Their parents were disapproving, and maybe for a good reason. Maybe they shouldn’t have skipped so many classes, or smoked so many cigarettes. Maybe they would grow up to think exactly the same as their parents. Not maybe- surely.

They were young and naive, excited to discover new things. In their world, Saturday afternoons flew by over the phone, wondering what would take place that night, and who they would see. Sunday’s were reserved for discussing what had happened those same nights.

Who’d have known they would sip wine even a decade later- three girls per bottle again, however this time a bit more expensive, and (in a) more sophisticated (manner). They laughed at their youth, remembering teenage heartaches, and how it was possible to have so much fun for so little money. Pictures revived memories of infamous outings in that small town. They already felt so old, as if their youth was even over.

Tri cure na bocu jeftinog vina, kao da bi im uopće džeparac ili jetra mogla više podnijeti s toliko godina. Roditelji im nisu bili najsretniji na svijetu, vjerojatno s razlogom. Možda nisu trebale toliko markirati, niti popušiti toliko cigareta. Možda bi postale iste kao i svoji roditelji jednog dana. Ne možda- sigurno.

Bile su mlade i naivne, željne novih spoznaja. U njihovom svijetu, subota popodne bi preletjela preko telefona, zamišljajući što će se dogoditi tu večer i koga će vidjeti vani, dok bi nedjeljnopopodnevne kave provele prepričavajuće te iste večeri.

Tko bi rekao da će, skoro deset godina kasnije, opet sjediti tri cure za bocom vina (makar ovaj put malo skupljom, na malo profinjeniji način). Smijale su se dogodovštinama iz mladosti, prisjećale se tinejdžerskih ljubavnih jadi i kako su se mogle zabavljati za toliko malo novaca. Slike su povratile sjećanja neslavnih izlazaka u tom malom gradu. Čovjek bi pomislio da im je već gotova mladost, već su se osjećale staro.
