Her favorite flower is daffodils

The image of Chloe pushing that blasphemous girl into the pool, it's in the back of my head every time I look at her. The flock of angry parents surrounding her, how she wouldn't apologize but demanded an excuse for comparing H&M to Chanel. To me, at the time, it was the pinnacle of civil disobedience.

And now, since yesterday, she's been acting strange, as if something is putting her off balance. It's in the little details, a trace of it in her eyes, in the way she stumbles on the words when she talks about her day. She wants to stay in tonight, no dressing up and no dancing, just the red wine and opium cigarettes on the balcony after sunset.

Henry sent me dried daffodils, one for each day since we last met, and a note saying he stopped watering them when I left. The perfect cliché with a twist and I hate to admit it works.

    So cliché. Even I just fell for it.

  2. Oh Avy.
    To put it simply and ever so un-poetically.
    You're screwed. This guy's good.

    Please send Chloe our love. This girl I've never met, the one I've only read about in a blogpost written by someone I don't know; she sounds like she deserves it.
