THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 284

Odd Job

We were doing our next
odd job
for computer engineering class
in the library.
Routine maintenance
on every machine.
And sure enough,
my ex-crush
was sitting in his usual chair
reading his usual
fat fantasy novel.
I headed over to talk to him,
screwdriver in hand.
“What’s up with Lindsey?” I asked.
His head jerked up.
I must have startled him
in the middle of some epic battle
with fairies, dragons, and elves.
He brushed curly hair
out of his eyes
and said,
“It’s complicated.
Something about her parents.
Her sister.
And me.
But why do you care?
I thought you hated her.”
