How We Reveal Ourselves
Here's a new piece of flash fiction. Hope you're having a good week!
If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't. I wouldn't start out by ordering garlic chicken while you picked at almost nothing. There's only room in any relationship for an eating disorder and I go by the old practice, Ladies First. I wouldn't fall in love with you right away, thereby sparing myself. I think of your spartan room, the rice paper blinds. How I decided that I wouldn't count the cost. I didn't have much to go on in those days. I still don't.
