THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 305

Sudden

I tried to concentrate on the speakers,
but my eyes blurred over
as Gary moved and sat beside Maddy.
His arm went around her in the same way
it used to go around me.
I didn’t want to confront him.
I knew it would not be worth it.
His sudden betrayal had sapped energy
from my body.
I felt deflated, propped
against the bleachers like something forgotten.
“It is difficult for guys to control
their sexual urges.” The speaker broke through
my stupor. I realized
guys may not be as affected by the plague
as the girls, but they are the ones
who transmit it.
