I was looking through some Polysics CD’s at a record store, when a girl in a purple coat walked up to me and asked,
“are you busy?”
I looked up, and told her that I wasn’t, she then asked if I wanted to hang out.
It caught me off-guard, and I told her I couldn’t, as my friends were waiting outside for me; which was the truth.
She looked very nervous, even before asking, maybe even on the verge of tears.
I wonder if I ruined her day?
I wonder if I’m being incredibly egotistical to think that -I- could ruin someone’s day that easily.
She never told me her name. I should have asked.
