Entrapment in 23 words, part 2
Arriving at the meeting place, I'm dressed incognito (dark glasses, black trench coat) so K won't recognize me. I sit on a bench, in the immediate area and keep a lookout. Every once in a while I raise a newspaper to my eyes and peer out over it. Fifteen minutes later, I spot K wearing gym clothes.
At first glance, K walks towards my direction, but doesn't see me. Now, walking the other way and looking a little bothered, K takes off his nylon jacket and starts strutting, making sure everyone sees his tight tank top. I giggle beneath the newspaper. Pompous. This is just too good, and it's all I need to make my day.
As much as I want to stay, I have to get back to work. On the way to my meeting, my phone beeps. I think it's C, who I'm meeting for coffee tomorrow. It's not. It's K.
"Srry I was totally busy forgot to txt u still dealing I think we should Meet later this week like weekend Srry again."
Doesn't feel too good getting stood up, does it, K? Now, you know how it feels. What's sad is K now knows that you can't always trade up from what you have (and mistakenly think what you deserve).
I place the phone back in my pocket with a smile. By this point, I don't care. I know the sort of person K is. It's too bad I had to find out this way. Granted, the situation did make for a funny story.
