Do you remember... (butterflygirl6106's 200th Ficlet Challenge)

Do you remember that girl?

“What 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?
