Day 08 – A moment

It's summer. My hair isn't short. I've worked all day, but it's dark now and I'm at my friend's place. She's having a barbecue. There are people in the garden who I've known for years. Others I have never seen before. Our host is in the library with her boyfriend's friend. He looks nice. I walk in and we start talking about Harry Potter, the last book has been released not long ago. The boy says his favourite character is Remus Lupin. My friend gives me a look, a sly, knowing look, makes some excuse and disappears. The boy and I discuss our favourite books all night, but I'll soon forget what we talked about. What I'm going to remember for a long time is seeing my friend smile, knowing her well enough to realise that she planned this and feeling distinctly uncomfortable and embarrassed.

  1. I've been really loving these lists/stories/moments of yours. Maybe because I can relate to them but mostly because I'm learning more and more about you and the more I learn, the more I like you as a person.
