THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 233

The Unspoken

Gary’s words echoed in my head
for the rest of the day.
It would take a long time
for them to fade.
I took a multiple-choice geometry test
and second-guessed
myself on almost every question.
C is the most common
multiple-choice answer.
I haven’t had C in about seven questions.
One of them has to be C.

A separate part of my brain
whirred away.
My default crush
had not been Gary,
so was I second-guessing myself
by dating him?
My ex-crush’s words came back
into my head.
Because I am.
Then the unspoken…
Because I am (right for you).
