‘He’s something , isn’t he?’
Bob nodded his head. Patrick then said something I don’t think I’ll ever forget.
‘He’s a wallflower.’
'You see things. You keep quiet about them. And you understand.’
I didn’t know that other people thought things about me. I didn’t know that they looked. I was sitting on the floor of a basement of my first real party between Sam and Patrick, and I remembered that Sam introduced me as her friend to Bob. And I remembered that Patrick had done the same for Brad. And I started to cry. And nobody in the room looked at me weird for doing it. And then I really started to cry.
