Finn walked down the sidewalk, his shoes sloshing through the wet remains of snow and ice. He quietly hummed a tune he couldn’t remember well as he approached the distant apartment building. While he drew nearer to the apartments, he passed by a pair of figures walking down the sidewalk beside him. He double-taked, and turned around. Watching as they walked off, he realized it was Kieran and Liadan.
Heading up the stairs and into his apartment, his mind wondered about what he saw. It was slow to process. Were they holding hands? He recalled it carefully. Huh? Are they dating or something?
He leaned against the door to his apartment. It just didn’t click in his head.
He sat down, still thinking. Is that what Kieran was talking about the other day? When did they get together? Why didn’t they tell me?
He stared off into the living room, then he took his phone out of his pocket. Staring at it for a moment, he typed out a message.
“Bianca - want to try going out again?”
He sat quietly as he waited for his phone to buzz.
He sat his chin in his palm. …why did I do that?
