"Something, something about this place

Something 'bout lonely nights and my lipstick on your face

Something, something about my cool Nebraska guy

Yeah, something about, baby you and I"

- Lady Gaga: You and I



June 4th 2:16 PM

I pick up my phone, then put it back down on the coffee table.

I look at it.

I sit back against the couch, thinking of a reason to call her, but can't come up with anything intelligent.

She'd probably hang up on me anyway.

I lean forward again, elbows on my knees, and stare at the phone.

Think of a reason, Edward.


The front door opens and closes, but my eyes stay on the phone.

"Waiting for an important call?" Jasper asks. When I don't respond, he sighs, "You really need to stop doing this, man."

I tap my knuckle against the screen of the phone.

"Come to the party this weekend...talk to her," he reasons, "please."

I purse my lips, stand up, and tuck my phone into my pocket.

"Just leave me alone," I reply.
