The two guys I did not know
and turned back to the television.
Gary wandered into a dark corner
of the room. I could just make out
a dimly lit cabinet. Gary slid
two boxes off the shelves.
“Are we going to play
Monopoly?” Lindsey asked.
“Something even better,” said Gary.
My ex-crush’s eyes lit up
as he stood, forcing Lindsey
from his lap.
The boys’ enthusiasm was contagious.
Gary lifted the lid of one box slowly,
as if unveiling a present.
Lindsey’s face twitched like she was
fighting back the urge to laugh.
“Dungeons and Dragons? Really?”
She slinked away.
