THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 353

Slither

My ex-crush’s words
were as immaterial as the smoke.
The more I thought about what he said,
the less sense it made.
“But why would she set a fire
to evacuate everyone,
then go in the school
and start shooting?
There would be nobody
to shoot,” I said.
My ex-crush bit his lip.
He was lying.
I knew it.
I wanted to shake his broad shoulders
and yell at him
for thinking I was stupid—
or so infatuated with him
that I believed his lies.
“Stop lying.
Tell the truth!”
He failed to make eye contact
and slithered away into the crowd.
