2. Maybe a beginning
"Sometimes things happen and we don't pay attention to it, but at some point we realize that we should've."
September 19th - Friday
I'm on my way to a date I never wanted to go. My friend thinks college is making me depressed, I don't really know if I agree with her or not. Is it true that i don't go out much ? Yes. But that doesn't mean anything. Did I talked to someone beside my friend Marry, the one that set this date for me ? No. But that doesn't mean anything neither. I'm just not like every 21 years boy, I'm sorry people. I guess I'm just used to this life.
Sweet Disposition by The Temper Trap flows through the car while I watch the city getting darker and the lights going bright as the sun goes down. As I stop on a red light I see the people walking on the side walk and crossing the street. The light goes green and I start moving till a figure appears in front of my car. I step on the break with my heart on my throat. A scared girl looks at me and runs to the other side of the road. That was an almost. I keep driving to the restaurant working my breathing and with those scared eyes.
I arrived at the place Marry said I would meet her friend. I waited for a few minutes by the bar, and a pretty girl approaches me. "You must be Lucas, right ?" She asks smiling. "Luke. And you're Connie, I suppose." We get a table and we talk, talk, and talk till there's this annoying silence between us. I try to make small talk, but nothing really works. So after a few more failures, se excuses herself for the loo. I look around the place, trying to fund someone else who was having a bad time like me, but apparently every couple in the restaurant was pretty happy with their situations. Connie came back and said she was sick, she quickly left the table and told me to call her later. I sigh in frustration, already think about the lecture Marry will make later on. I pay the bill and go home.
