Paradigm shift:

He woke up on Sunday, and took a long shower. He walked downstairs, and grabbed some cereal, thinking of her the whole time. He couldn't wait to see her. He sat down with the book he was reading, hoping to pass the time quicker, and get to 1:00 as fast as possible. And so time passed. It passed right on through 1 and straigt up to 1:30. She still wasn't there yet. The conversation was beginning in his head.


"Hi, Zack, I'm really sorry, I'm not coming today"

"And when were you planning to call and tell me that?"


"You know, if you just don't want to see me, tell me, it's better than being paranoid all the time."

It would only get worse from there. He called, and her mom picked up.

"She's already at the pool," she said. Already?

"Ok, thanks anyway." He started to think. Oh, darn, of course she's avoiding me. What? Why would she be avoiding me? At the pool already? She was supposed to be HERE now, and go to the pool at 4. He checked the messages, only the slightest sliver of hope clinging on.

"Hi Zack, I have some news to break your heart." Oh, god, here it comes. "I can't come over today because-" I will work to elevate you, just enough to bring you down. Sing it, Maynard. "-I'm going to be at the pool from 12:30 to 7:00, because Anna can't work those hours, so she's going to be there from 4 to 8:30 instead of me. I'm really sorry, I'll call around 8. Love you, bye!"

LOVE YOU!!!! It was 1:40, and life was about a million shades brighter than ten minutes ago. He couldn't wait for monday.
