THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 132

I’m Sorry

Tears sprang to my eyes.
I had to blink several times
to soothe the sharp pain they brought.
In the space of blinking,
he rose from his chair.
He was leaving.
But I called out his name.
“I’m sorry!”
He turned around to face me.
“I thought you were different,” he said.
“But you’re just like everyone else.
I really thought you were…
well, I wanted to think you were…”
But I am! I am different!
He could not seem to decide on his next words.
Tears stung my eyes again.
Before I could blink again,
he gave up
and walked away.
