Fixated - Episode 7
I was out of my element.
My feet ached and my belly churned with nervousness but earlier this night, I promised Kathy I'd try.
I deserved to be happy and most especially, I deserved to forget.... Even if it was just for a night.
"I'll be back." I told Kathy.
Her hands gripped mine as they met my stare and slowly they loosened. "Are you okay?" She asked.
I nodded with a smile . "I just want to adjust my make up." I replied. It wasn't entirely the truth but she didn't need to know.
I couldn't let her know how much I was dying inside.

"Do you want me to come along?"
"No. I'll be back in three minutes."
"Kathy, you're up." A familiar voice interrupted.

. Her lips pulled in a tight frown as she looked down at her wrist.
"Sorry." I mumbled.
I shoved my hands in the pocket of my jeans.
"I'll take you to the rest room." I offered.
For a moment she just stared suspiciously.
"Uh, thanks but I'm good." She finally said.
Disappointment filled me and this time, I watched her leave.
I was really f*cked.
