A friend of mine came to a neighboring town for her private business, so we had lunch together. Although we had misunderstood our meeting place and it caused me to take forty minutes to reach her, we thoroughly enjoyed chatting over lunch.
We first met about five years ago. Our mutual interest greatly helps us bond
even after my moving to Saga.
She was kind to give me beautiful oranges. I had one of them for dessert at home!
「bond は subject が複数形の場合は自動詞として使われる」のだそうです。
