THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 154

A Scab

“You’re still thinking of him,
aren’t you?” Liz accused me.
“Of Gary,” I said.
Her eyes looked ready
to pop out of her head.
I could see the curving lines of her contact lenses.
“You’re into nerds?
I guess I should have expected that,
but what about the other guy?”
I thought about him. My crush.
Missing him used to be a terrible ache,
a wave that could knock me into sadness,
but it had become nothing.
It was a scab I already picked off.
(I thought.)
“I don’t care about him.
Gary’s been nicer to me.”
Liz just shrugged.
