THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 129

Someone Important

But Liz didn’t hear me.
She took me by the arm
and dragged me through the school.
Everyone stared at me.
People who had never bothered
with me before came up to talk to me.
They smiled at me,
treated me like I was someone important.
Liz enjoyed the attention more than I did.
She embellished the story,
adding details that never happened.
I glanced down at my feet.
I didn’t want this attention.
All I wanted was to go away,
maybe to the library, because
there was only one person
I wanted to see,
but I didn’t see him.
