Let’s Be HonestPosted on June 6, 2008
Oblivious as he usually seemed, Dave knew what he was doing most of the time but he liked to sit back and see the movements of others. Dave had met the girl accidentally in passing and knew her type, the way she treated people and the way she cleverly stuffed chocolates in-between her fingers to attract starving people. It was cruel but fun to watch. He had known her for about 10 years now, they had become good friends, never anything more, mostly because of his knowledge of the situation, he liked to keep a backed off perspective to keep things… safe. They were very clearly compatible but he kind of liked keeping her at a distance because it was nice to control someone who controlled so many others, it kind of made Dave feel above people who he normally felt below.
Jonah was her name, it was really beautiful but he always thought of it more as a guy’s name. They spent weekends together climbing mountains and during the week when they both worked they liked to see midnight films and afterward catch up with the interesting people who hung out in neighboring diners. The time they spent together was pure gold and the time they spent apart was the same. Unfortunately it was too normal for both of them, so they stopped talking.
