“You know it’s been better since we broke up,” I looked up and saw Stephanie, a girl whom I had no interest in, yet hearing that sentence made me want to invite her to coffee and have her spill everything to me. “Tom is just so childish, I need someone with a career, someone who can do literally any one thing. Tom can’t do anything.” Truthfully, I had stopped listening to her after hearing her and Tom had broken up.
