It was a busy Friday afternoon in downtown L.A. The sun was out with a vengeance as it heated your skin. You silently cursed yourself for not putting on enough sunscreen. Had you known your friends would choose to sit out on the Acai Bar patio in the scorching heat, you probably would’ve done so.
You picked at the corner of your napkin as your friends rambled on and on about the new clothes they bought while stuffing their faces with fruit. You hadn’t tried acai before put apparently it was all the rage in L.A. You tried your best to remain engaged in conversation when they started talking about their boyfriends but being the only single friend in the group you really didn’t have much to relate to. You rested your chin in your hand as your eyes looked out to the busy L.A. traffic. Sometimes you just wanted to run back home. Maybe you didn’t really fit in here.
