The weather resembles his life perfectly: everything is vague, misty, unsure. The steam coming of his hot cup of coffee is really visible today. Standing on the platform he waits impatiently for the train to arrive. This train is going to bring him to his university. There, a whole new world of awkwardness will await him. He used to have a girlfriend.
She is in the same class as he is but yesterday she broke up with him. Over the bloody phone. And she didn’t even have the courage to call him, heavens no! It was a text message. Just a cold, heartless text message. He had to refrain himself from throwing his phone against the wall, but that would have solved absolutely nothing. It would only have cost him his phone and she is so not worth that. At least, not anymore.
Twenty-four hours ago he would have staked his life for her. And now? What did he get in return? He gave her all his attention, all his love, everything he could! He even put up with her stupid anxiety crap, always afraid he would leave her. Now she left him. In pure frustration he clenches his fist.
He glances over the information board. Great, now even his train is delayed. He spins around and accidentally bumps into someone. A hefty book falls to the ground and he barely manages to keep the coffee from spilling over the other commuter.
“I’m so sorry!” the girl cries out.
He is flabbergasted.
“But.. I bumped into you!”
He kneels and picks up her book. Applied physics?
“You studying physics?”
“Yea, I am,” the girl says shyly. She must be about his age and she’s cute.
“No wonder you where that physical.”
It was a horrible joke, but she laughed none the less. He stretches out his hand.
“I study chemistry, wanna talk a little?”
The weather resembles his life perfectly: everything is misty, but the sun is still shining.
