THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 96

Downcast

I descended the stairs,
eyes downcast as usual.
I knew if I looked up,
I might see Lindsey.
Or him.
Or even worse,
Lindsey and him.
Together.
I tried to make myself look up.
Come on, this is ridiculous.
It was just a stupid crush.
Get over it.

My brain and my body
weren’t working together
until someone poked me.
I thought it was Liz,
so I turned around,
a false smile settled on my face,
and found myself staring at Gary.
“Remember me?” He grinned.
I had no choice but to grin back.
He had his shirt on
inside out.
