"Valerie was from here. She traveled almost as much as I did now, but she and I weren't a steady item. We were more steady bedmates. No exclusivity. No relationship. That'd never been her and me, even since the first time we hooked up in college. It was after a big game for Mason, so the festivities had been extreme. I went to a bar and picked up a redhead who had me smiling the first second I saw her. She had me laughing within the next thirty seconds of talking, and then I then took her home. I meant to reach out later, maybe see what could be there, but I didn't. I didn't know why I didn't. I just didn't. Then she reached out six months later.
We met up and had a hot night.
No phone calls were exchanged. No texts.
Until the next time she was in Boston, and we had a repeat. After that, It became our thing. If we were in the area of the other one, we shared a night and then went on with our normal lives the next day."
That all ended two years ago, I had no idea why. I called that night two years and was sent straight to voicemail. I texted her. No response. A few months into ghosting me, she changed her phone number. I tried looking her up at her job but nothing. She wasn't on their website. Then I got an event notice online for her engagement party. She and another were smiling all night for the photographer so that explained what happened. Still, though. I'd be lying if I said I didn't think about her. Something still nagged in the back of my mind about her.
