“Claire told me.”
For the first time, today, you mentioned her name. Who is this girl? Yes, it got me anxious. More anxious than I should be.
“Claire came over today. She got me lunch.”
“Ahh, that’s so sweet of her!” Well, I can too.
Once, twice, thrice, and more. Her name started appearing more frequently in our conversations, and honestly, I didn’t like it. I hated it. Stop talking about her, I don’t want to know.
“So what did she bring you this time?”
“Steak and baked potatoes. I love steak.”
It killed me to see his eyes beaming. It was like I was having a physical battle in my mind. My inner bitch starts to curse at her, while I continue smiling at him.
As he continued to speak of her, I could feel it. He reminded me of someone. Me. He reminded me of myself. When I speak about him to my friends, this is how I look. My eyes shine, my lips can barely not break into a smile, and sometimes I get too excited. Because of him. And now him, because of Claire. Because of that girl. No.
