The Meeting

The pair met at the corner cafe at Monash University. Anne ran into Paul, who was eating lunch with Jeremy. The two guys shared Monday morning lecturers together.

The Begging

After an awkward introduction and exchange of few pleasantries (the weather, the coffee, blah blah), Jeremy left for class. As he walked away, Anne begged Paul for a date.

The Confession Part 1

“Can I be honest with you?” Anne asked.

The Confession Part 2

“I don’t know how to say this, Anne, especially after all the effort you’ve made.” He looked more nervous than her. “I’m gay. And I’ve been sleeping with Paul for the last five months.”

The Getaway Dress

While attempting to leave the sophisticated establishment, Anne popped up from her seat. It was best to leave, forget the date existed, and return to the safety of her sexless bedroom.
