Last Person I Talked to Before Class


“We’re almost there, Diane.”

That’s what she told me.

She’s happy and excited that the school year is almost over.

I’m telling her about all of my current stressors and we’re talking about how neither of us did any homework over Thanksgiving. We took a break, but I also worked.

She reassues me that after finals week, all we will have to do is work. It’ll be better than trying to please our professors because once we’re at work all we will do is work and leave it at work.

She’s in a dress ready to go straight to Goosman Law Firm after her classes. We both really love our jobs outside of the college. Every morning, she has to put on make-up otherwise she feels like she didn’t get ready for the day. Opposite of me, I brush my teeth, wash my face, and then brush my hair calling it a day.

Brayton. Her name is Brayton and she’s the sunshine in my life. She’s always happy and optimistic. I don’t know what else to say.


  1. You are the sunshine of my life
    That’s why I’ll always be around
    You are the apple of my eye
    Forever you’ll stay in my heart
    I feel like this is the beginning…
    (Stevie Wonder)

    “We’re almost there, Diane.” That’s what she told me. (What if she’s lying?)
