THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 325


After dodgeball,
we exited the gym
to make room for the next class,
which included Maddy.
She grabbed me around the wrist,
stabbing me with pointy nails.
“Hey,” she said in a whisper as sharp
as her manicure,
“your ex-boyfriend sucks in bed.”
The words stuck in my head
like flies in a spider’s web
as I tried to convince myself
that she was lying again,
but the mental pictures scarred me.
I recalled the triumph
of dodgeball
and the moment of hilarity
when Nick got a ball stuck
behind the backboard
of the basketball hoop,
but Maddy’s words
still stuck.
