The Final Buzzer

I don’t know how I kept this tour going. Oh yes I do — barely.

It’s like she had just been in my head…and is now taking advantage of an opportunity she saw with the quiet girl. The one who spends too much time in the library, who sits alone in the stands at all the girls’ basketball games, who’s never said a word to her favorite player but she catches her staring sometimes.
