Where Were These Stars?

Pauline and Tina were best friends from childhood. They had met after a span of nearly five years. Tina was working as an IT consultant and Pauline had left the country after completing her education to work as a banker.

They had a favourite pastime from their school days: meeting every Sunday night on the terrace of Tina’s building for a chat. They talked about their entire week, about their families and future career plans.

Today, they were lying down on the terrace facing the sky. No words were exchanged for quite some time.

Pauline: Where were these stars when we met here all those years?

Tina: I don't know. Maybe they were here; we were lost in our thoughts.
