I was going to get the keys to my new apartment and I was grining from ear to ear. You said you knew where the office was and offered to go with me there. I did not mind, I was in a good mood. When we got to the office, you found a spot in a corner and stood there.
Just as I finished talking with the lady behind the computer, I noticed three other people waving at me. I knew them, they were friends of friends. I was excited about my keys and I must have infected them with my enthusiasm because soon enough, we were all in very high spirits. But you just stood, in the corner.
I beckoned at you with my eyes, but you did not come. Then I waved you over but still, you were standing there. Finally, we all just walked over to you and they introduced themselves.
We left them there and as we opened the door to leave the office, one of them blew me a kiss. I blew a kiss right back!
You were quiet on the way back. I asked you what was wrong. You said there was a part of me that I did not show you. The part that was only reserved for my friends. You said I was bubbly and happy with my friends but not with you. You said you did not understand why I could not be that fun when it was just two of us.
I did not want to be in a bad mood so I ignored all that I heard. Instead, I tried to link my hands in yours but you snatched your hand away.
I began to feel a dark cloud coming over my head. The more I looked at you, the angrier I got. The more I looked at you sitting opposite me, the madder I got. You began to irritate me. Your round head, your eye glasses, your k legs, your briefcase, everything about you began to disgust me.
Then you asked again, "why can't you be like that with me?"
And I replied "and you were just standing there..."
Of everything that disgusted me about you at that very moment, the most disgusting was how you just stood there, in that corner. Everybody else was looking over at you, waving and smiling...but you just stood there...like a damn fool.
