I lay on my bed for a while after Ashlei left, trying to fall back asleep. I never did. My thoughts kept drifting back to what she had told me. Sara was waiting in the lobby for me. I didn’t know why. She didn’t have anything to say to me and I didn’t have anything to say to her.
Okay, maybe I was a little interested as to why she never picked me up. But I was fine with letting that go. And maybe I kind of wanted to see her warm smile, but I was fine with letting that go too. I looked at the clock, she had probably left by now. I shifted positions, trying to find a comfortable one. I hated this damn cast.
Finally, after tossing around for a while, I got up. I was extremely thirsty so I decided to get something to drink. I pulled myself, grabbed a couple dollars, and headed downstairs. I didn’t dwell on the fact that I had to pass through the lobby to get to the vending machines.
