shirley and watty have been best friends since they were kids; around middle school shirley went from seeing him as the boy down the street who she’d talk about pokemon with to the boy down the street who’s hand she wanted to hold.
they’ve never been more than friends, best friends, but nothing more. shirley was convinced she’d be okay with that as long as she was always his first choice.
watty had a few girlfriends in high school but thankfully nothing serious and no one that ever ranked higher than shirley anyways.
now university bound shirley is a bit anxious as to what awaits them, parties and study groups new friends and things to experience…and also girls…lots of girls who will no doubt see what she’s seen in watty for a while now.
so although excited about university life and all the new beginnings and possibilities shirley can’t help but feel like something is ending, something she might not be ready to let go of.
