THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 197

None of Your Business

Guilt roved over
Lindsey’s face
in a nervous tic.
She shoved the key
back under her shirt,
repeating,
“None of your business.”
She flicked hair out of her eyes
and said,
“So what are you and Gary
gonna do at the party?”
How does she know?
“None of your business.”
I couldn’t resist smiling
as she stormed off.
I swore I could almost hear
the key jingling against
its metal chain,
bouncing in time
with her frustrated footsteps.
How does she know
about the party?
Will she be there?

I crumpled the
lip gloss–stained paper towel
and tossed it away.
