“I’m sorry,” I said. He said it was fine.
“You should go and sit with her. It’s ok I’ll manage on my own.”
But he just shook his head and stared straight in front.
I started talking to my friends sitting behind us but all the while I kept thinking to myself: this is a damn good opportunity! If I wasn’t here, he could have been sitting and chatting with her!
Soon, my stop arrived. As I got off I hissed to him, “Go sit with her! Carpe Diem!”
But he grimaced and said, “Never mind. Besides, it’s awkward.”
