It felt like a slow motion day. Just going through the motions. Of course, Sarah wouldn't look at me. I tried my best not to look at her. She's much better at this stuff than I am.
I just felt numb, you know.
Definitely out of it. Homework to make up. It felt like sadness wrapping me up like plastic wrap. Letting me look out, yet taking my breath away. It just didn't seem fair. It would never be right with Sarah, would it?
Some of the guys were all set on where we'd all go before Homecoming dance. Who was taking too. All these plans.
"Who are you taking?"
"I don't know." I didn't even feel like going.
"Well, you gotta be there with someone." Someone said.
"I know." I knew the drill. I guess. Let other people decide for me. This was a group effort, wasn't it?
"Well, lets find Lonnie a date." It was the next thing I heard, but was I really up to play the part?
