I started really hoping that I wasn't wrong about God not existing and all because I would hate to imagine what the big guy would have to say about this.
When I got home, I unlocked the door as quietly as possible. I went straight to my room and slipped into bed without making a sound.
In the morning, I got up and went to the bathroom and got dressed. The door to Kathy's old room was open, and I could hear that there was someone inside. I looked in and saw that it was Rex. He was alone and already dressed, arranging some things in his suitcase.
"Rex, I'm so glad to see you again!" I said, running up to give him a hug.
He was a little surprised, but said "I'm glad to see you, too, kiddo."
"Rex, I really need to talk to you about something," I said, taking a seat on the bed.
"Well that was fast!" he said. "I just got here and already you need to talk to me. Won't you have a seat?" he said jokingly, and he sat down next to me. "What's up?" he asked.
"Something happened last night, and I'm afraid I may have done the wrong thing."
"Well, you see, there's this girl I really like," I began.
Rex chuckled. "Why do these stories always begin this way?" he asked, knowingly. "Sorry to interrupt. Go on."
"Well, this girl and her friend were having a party at her friend's house because her friend's parents were out of town. I was really looking forward to it because I figured that I could get together with the girl I liked. Anyway, what happened was that right at the beginning of the party the cute girl told me that it wasn't going to work out between us and that she wasn't going to ever be with me. But she didn't tell me why. Then she just up and left. I didn't know most of the other people at the party very well, but they offered me some beer and then a bunch of tequila shots, and I didn't feel like turning them down."
"Seems reasonable," said Rex.
