Do you remember... (butterflygirl6106's 200th Ficlet Challenge)
Do you remember that girl?
The one you were interested in at Abby Junior.
“Again, what girl at Abby Junior? I was interested in a lot of girls in high school.”
The one from your grade 8 cooking class.
groan “Could you be more specific? I was the only guy in the class!”
You know the one I’m talking about. The pretty one.
“Okay, look this is getting tiresome. Which pretty one?”
“Oooohhh. Lisa. Yeah, I remember her. Why?”
You had a huge crush on her.
“We had a huge crush. Remember, you’re me.”
Okay. And that brings me to my main point.
“There’s a point to all this?”
“Will you be getting to it some time today?”
Not if you’re going to be rude about it.
“Okay. I’m sorry. Please, enlighten me.”
That’s better. I was just wondering, why didn’t you ask her out?
“Well, 1) I was terminally shy in junior high, and 2) she was dating someone.”
Oh. I just figured you didn’t think she’d date someone who talks to himself. So, what you think about this?
