Why Staying Single Might Be Good for You
I have always been the single friend. The character that you see in movies and television shows, the girl who can never find a boyfriend, never seems to have her act together, often portrayed as the partier, the drinker, the girl who is always coming home in the morning from a one night stand because she can’t get any real dates. Except I’m the single friend who likes it and chooses it.
She brings her hand to her mouth to muffle her scream. She hears his footsteps pierce the silence of the warm summer night. She hears him pause to slip his shoes off half way down the hall. She hears his sock covered feet shuffle along the wood floor, knowing when he passes her brother’s door, then her sister’s door. Her brother and sister are never bothered because they are his. She is not. She belongs to her mother. She belongs to another man, a man who had left long ago and never returned. She had never cared. She knew he was never coming back.
