THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 243

The Right Thing

He didn’t call after me—
not that I expected him to
or anything.
When I retrieved the basketball
from the other side of the gym
and looked back at the bleachers
where he sat,
he was already gone
as if he had evaporated.
I shot hoops
in a pattern.
Swish. Swish. Swish.
Rest.
Swish. Swish. Swish.
Rest.

Liz appeared and snatched
the ball from me.
“You look pissed.
What happened?”
So I told her,
she thought about it,
and she said,
“You did the right thing.
But he should break up
with Lindsey anyway.”
We shot hoops
together
until the whistle blew.
