Involuntary Whore

No qualifications, no money, no home. I had to sink to the lowest level imaginable. Excepting money for sex on the street corner.

I found myself walking into the centre of London, nothing to do, nowhere to be, nothing to be done about the past. I couldn't help but think about Ben. Why did he give it to me? What did it mean? Did he like me? All these questions were giving me a headache. I sat on a bench to look up and see the London eye, watching me with it's almost neon lights. It was so beautiful all of a sudden, I couldn't take my eyes off of the circular ring. It was strange.

 

I decided to ring Ben, he did give me his number after all. He probably only gave it to me so I could get money off of him through sex. I found a payphone a few minutes away from where I was. I put in a fiver, not caring about any change. It rang. Ring! Ring! After a few more rounds of this, someone picked up. They sounded almost shook up, maybe even scared.
"Hello?" the speaker blurred.
"Hello, is this Ben?" I asked almost choking on my own tongue.
"Yes. Who is this?" his voice was more worried. Maybe he thought I was a stalker.
"It's the girl, that you... Umm... You know. Did earlier. You gave me your number, remember?" I was desperate now, I'd do anything for a place to crash.
"Oh yeah, right! Are you alright?" Was he actually concerned?
"Not really no..." I wasn't going to lie, I phoned him, so I was going to tell him.
"What's wrong?"
"I need a place to crash to be honest." There was a short silence,
"Where are you?" he asked. Was he going to let me sleep in his flat? 
"By the London eye," 
"Stay at the entrance and I'll meet you there in a few minutes. Okay, be there soon. Bye." He hung up.

 

I walked back to the London eye. Finally, after 5 years. Someone I can maybe trust. But for now, he's a half friend, maybe an ally.
