what else could go wrong
Torri couldn't say it was the best of times with Soren..because it wasn't.
When did they start being roommates?
Part of the time she felt ancient around him and yet in the end..he felt ancient to her.
He'd cheated on her once. Although, she knew now it wasn't because he was interested in this other person ..who so happened to be an old flame. It was because he wanted her to think the worst of him. After all, he'd only kissed the girl in a public place and felt guilty about it. Which she found out on FACEBOOK.
But that happened last year, and she was still with him. She guessed.
Sure, they did the dishes together. Occasionally, went out. Although, those occasions were so few and far between.
Usually, she hung out with Griffin every weekend. Of course, it was nothing that crazy. Maybe they'd go to the disco. But that never happened. Usually, it was to places his girlfriend wouldn't go. After all, she only liked chicken nuggets from McDonald's.
At least Griffin liked to try new places, and she didn't mind going with him. Yet, she felt guilty half the time, leaving Soren at home. Although, he didn't really mind.
And now there was Chance.
They hadn't gone out. Although, she met him at the grocery store and she hung out with him a good four hours. It barely felt like fifteen minutes. Yes, his smiles were contagious and he could talk about fruit for hours, evidently.
"So where were you?" Soren broke Torrie's train of thought. "I was so sure that ice cream would be melted by now." After all, he was the one who asked for the Rocky Road ice cream.
"I was at the grocery store." She looked at him blankly.
"All this time? The grocery store?" He was in a huff, but she only watched him put away the groceries.
It was silent after awhile. It was always like this.
