We Are Young and Doomed

Milly Farber is tired of being boring, withdrawn, and socially awkward. At least, that's how she sees herself. She is determined to enjoy life. To stand out. To be exciting. To excite someone.

Jasper Hewn always took notice of the quiet little blonde girl who kept to herself at the back of the class. He always thought she seemed intriguing. But he never had the nerve to say hello.

Told from both perspectives in short bursts. Each chapter title is something the character is feeling, but it doesn't necessarily reflect the contents of the chapter. It's more of a reflection of their nervousness and self-consciousness within the situation.


10. I Don't Really Understand Her

I kind of figured why she had changed to Liscent. I didn't really understand why she was going back to Milly. It's okay though, because they were never really different from each other anyway. I liked her, however and whoever she was.

I held onto her hand as the movie started and we shared the popcorn and candy. Eventually, she ran out of water. I still had soda.

"Are you thirsty?" I asked her.

She nodded and I offered her the soda. She took a sip through the straw and handed the cup back to me. It was like the most natural thing in the world to share this drink. I took another sip. We shared everything for the rest of the first movie.

She started yawning heavily during the opening credits of the second film and her eyes looked heavy.

"Are you okay?" I asked. "It's okay if you need to go home and get some rest. I've really enjoyed tonight."

She shook her head hurriedly and smiled.

"No, I'm good for the second feature," she said.


But, she wasn't. I caught her dozing off ten minutes later. Her head started to slowly tilt towards me until finally her head dropped onto my shoulder and lulled forward a bit. She looked so cute with her eyes closed and her face so relaxed.

I woke her up and she looked startled.

"I'll drive you home," I told her. "How do I get to your house?"

She yawned and stretched before thanking me several times over and giving me directions.

She'd fallen asleep again in my passenger seat before I made it to her house. She must have been really tired to have fallen asleep again in such little time.

I tapped her shoulder gently, afraid to startle her a second time.

"Milly," I said softly. "Milly, we're here."

She opened her eyes slowly and looked into mine. We held eye contact for a beat. She looked like she was turning an idea over in her head.
