You haven't seen that face in years.
8 years, to be exact.
This detail is important.
Why? Because it feels right.
It was a meaningless friendship.
More of an attraction.
Towards the face.
Not the person.
You make small talk now.
An old friend, humour, makes an appearance.
So does desire.
Just like they did, 8 years ago.
You never wanted the other person as a conquest.
You've always wanted them to want you instead.
And once they did that, they became worthless.
You became the rejector.
