#35

by THE LONER

At party, two girls walk in, pick a corner and stand there.  Both super fine, boys all around them, never left alone.  Exchanging glances for a couples of hours, boys still around them.  Party dying down, see one sitting down alone, go in, wish her a happy new year, start talking.

Calm, collected and saying all the right things.  Genuinely nice convo, thinking she gets me, setting up, boy from earlier comes over, sits beside her, starts talking. Friend tells her that theyre leaving, she agrees, boy asks for phone number, can’t handle all the threats, gives her phone number to him, flabbergasted, don’t respond, she asks boy if hes leaving too, he says yes.

wishes me a good night

goodbye hug

walks out of my life.
