In club with friend, girl comes up to friend, chats him up a bit. Super hot, nice and in town for a few. friend eases off. talk, staying with me at the bar, convo is cooling, looking for a game-changing question, go thru a couple of options, settle on one, moment of glory approaching, ask

“do you always go out alone?”

looks at me, confused, insulted, disappointed, upset and answers: “goodnight, nice meeting u and going to see my friends now.”

never see her again…
