Soundtrack: Simple Man Cover by Shinedown
"You don't know how Megan has come to believe in you since you don't even believe in yourself."
-Bright Lights, Big City
The crowd grew overbearing. The throng no longer appealed. The wayward glances of girls admiring your visage chafed. A girl grabbed your arm. Wordlessly, you extracted it and pressed forth. You walked into the night and found sleep in your car.
You woke up with that desert dryness in your mouth that felt like sandpaper. You looked back over her messages asking you to behave. You climbed out of the backseat and put on your driving cap.
You drove home and slept.
