We travelled from South Wales, where we live, up to Warrington to spend the New Year with my best friend. It was something we’d done for the past 8 years. It was something I didn’t ever think I wouldn’t do.
Now, my friends name is Chris but I’d always called her Treasure or Treas for short. It was a name that had come about when we worked together and for both of us, it stuck.
When we got to Warrington, we’d been chatting for most of the evening then as she got up to go to bed she said as more of a passing comment, “just to let you know I’ve found a lump”. “What do you mean you’ve found a lump”, was my reply. “Oh it’s probably nothing but I’ve been to the doctors and I’m booked in for tests”. She must have seen the look on my face because she tried to reassure me that it was probably nothing.
