A convo between Maeby, our main character, and Torrin, her best friend.
"So talk to me Maeby. C'mon, you gotta open-up to somebody."
"Maybe there's nothin' to open-up about, Tor."
"Bull! There's somethin' going on with you. What is it?"
Jeez! Did NOBODY get it? What? Would I have to spell it out? Tattoo it on my forehead? I WAS IN PAIN! IT WAS OVER! WHAT DID THEY WANT ME TO SAY?!
"You can't shut people out forever, Maeb. There are people who care about you and want to see you better. You can't keep doing this to yourself."
That always handed me a laugh; "People who care about me." Please. I knew better than any of them that no one ever really gives a crap about anyone. Does not matter who they are. They only give a damn about numero uno.
"I don't do this to me."
