Deep breath, then another. I held my drink steady and began to walk
an awkward walk, a little too deliberate, my steps conspicuous,
almost silly as I feigned nonchalance until a fictional cough as I
neared you. Your attention caught. Was it also feigned? I didn’t want
to do any of this, this wasn’t me. But a promise if I ever saw you
again, a promise to oneself, that must be kept. And so, it was. How
could I have done otherwise, leaving you to chance.
