He took a deep breath and paused for a moment. Did he actually want to go through with this? He could instead just leave everything in its place, it was going…OK, he though. Then again, why would he even be here in this moment if it was going well. He rang the doorbell. A few moments later the door opened, it was her roommate. “Hey” she said, “you told her you were headed over?”. “Yeah, she just said OK” he muttered back. “OK”, she started walking inside, he followed her in. “She’s been in her room most of the day, actually I haven’t seen much of her lately” she said as she opened her apartment door. “Thanks” he said as he walked up to her door. Just as he was about to knock the door abruptly opened. He stepped back as she emerged and she quickly closed the door behind her. “Hi” she muttered as she moved past him toward the kitchen. He turned around and saw her roommate quickly leave the kitchen moving towards her room.

“Hey, how have you been, we haven’t talked that much so I wanted to come over and…” she cut him off. “I’ve been busy, you know that.” She opened the fridge and looked inside. He felt the poptart wrapper crush a little in his back pocket as he sat on the counter across from the fridge. He looked into the fridge, “You didn’t eat any of the strawberries I brought you. You usually love them.” “I guess I forgot about them, they’ve gone bad anyways” she said as she pulled out the strawberries and a package of baby carrots. She walked over to the trash and threw the strawberries out. She opened the package of carrots, popped a carrot into her mouth, and started to walk toward her room. “Wait,” he said as he hopped off the counter to follow her. She stopped right before her door and turned to face him. “I don’t think this is going to work out” she said with nearly an expressionless face all while chewing her carrot. He didn’t say anything. “I’ve been super busy and don’t really have that much time.” She looked hurt, but not as hurt as he was. “That much time for me?” he said slowly, trying to hold back whatever he was feeling. “Yeah, I guess” she sighed and then paused. “Bye”. She opened her door, walked in, and closed it. He stood there staring at her door, he didn’t know what to say, but the last thing on his mind was bye.
