My closest friend is sitting next to me. She shuffles uncomfortably on the bench. What is up with her? She’s been acting strangely lately. It’s almost as if she’s avoiding me. My calls are rarely answered and when answered cut short. I’ve known her since we were kids. We share everything together. I know her better than anyone in the world, and that is why I immediately sense something is wrong.
She is avoiding eye contact and the conversation is not flowing like it usually is. I don’t think we’ve ever been so quiet. So I just stare in the distance. I know her. I know it will come out. For minutes we just sit there together, each occupied by our own thoughts. Then it comes: “Last weekend I slept with Jay.” We share everything together. Apparently now also boyfriends.
