@es-trellas Drew + Ruby
Prancing up the walkway leading to Drew's front door, I put one flat-covered foot in front of the other until I reached the entrance, knocking twice on the door and patiently awaiting for Drew to answer, my legs shaking together in their grey skinny jeans. Come on, Drew, I think to myself silently, I'm freezing my ass off out here. It'd been a long time since Drew and I's encounter breaking into the neighbor's pool. It was that day months ago that I almost told him. I almost confessed after he grabbed me by the waist and threw me in. I almost kissed his goddamned, dripping wet face that was so close to mine, so close I could've. I could've just kissed him and that would've been that. Everything would be done and over with, fine and that'd be that. Maybe he'd hate me for it. Maybe he wouldn't and something would've blossomed from it, but I'll never know because I didn't. The only thing I could do now is think of all the things that could've been.
