THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 218

Shimmer

Over the next few days,
I saw very little of Lindsey
or my ex-crush.
Gary was always there,
but he hovered around me
without saying a word.
There was nothing to say.
We understood
the other’s silence.
Sometimes he brought
a Dungeons & Dragons rule book,
and we looked at it during lunch.
But when glimpses
of my ex-crush seemed to shimmer
from corners of the cafeteria,
I looked up,
hoping to catch just a tiny sight
of him,
maybe his curly hair or
a word of the title of the book
he held under his arm.
Why does he matter?
