Saturday, September 08, 2012      9 comments

I'd avoided her for weeks. For a while I didn't see her, hidden away so it was easy for me to forget about her. I had a feeling I knew what she'd say when I saw her again, and I just wasn't ready for that. Not that she's mean or anything, but... Read more
