THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 201

Everyone

Behind the door, I heard them talking.
One voice stood out—
the voice of my ex-crush.
It felt like dreaming
to hear him outside
of my dreams.
Gary opened the door.
Lindsey was there.
My ex-crush.
Two guys I did not know.
I focused on the television
behind everyone.
A video game was frozen
on the screen:
Mario about to jump
inside a pipe
to save the princess.
I wish I could jump
inside a pipe…
but who would save me?
Gary’s hand pressed my back.
“It’s OK,” he whispered.
Lindsey waved
like we were best friends.
She sat
on my ex-crush’s lap.
