Not Really the Same

Janice almost fell as her heart stopped. Her jaw had broken through the floor and was heading towards the core of the Earth. He…he just… did he… he did didn’t he… Janice waited for the voice to start yelling but it didn’t.
“Janice?” Kyle’s voice was small and scared, “did I scare you away?”
“No of course not. I… I just… had to process that.”
“Oh. Well I was just saying that you’re hard to forget too.”
“No, you said it was hard for you to get me off your mind.”
“Isn’t that the same thing,” Kyle was trying to get away with something.
“No not really.”
“W-well… is either a bad thing?”
“Not at all,” she said smiling.
“So I didn’t offend you or anything?”
“No. Maybe a bit confused but that’s all.”
“Oh well maybe I can unconfuse you some time.”
“Hmm… I’d like that.”
“Next time I see you I’ll make sure to have some paper so I can draw a diagram for you,” he teased.
“Sure. That and you can ask me that question.”
“Oh yes THAT question. I’ll be sure to remember.”
