She looked at me and her eyes lit up.
It was the day after Halloween
And everyone was sorting through leftover candy.
She picked up a blue-raspberry sucker.
“I remember, on the first day of school,
You were nervous about meeting new people,
So you brought a bunch of these.
You ended up giving me three.”
I just smiled at her,
And she beamed back at me.
Her boyfriend was watching the whole thing.
She didn’t care.
I think he did.
