It was as if they were talking to imaginary people on either side.
They weren’t talking, yet their expressions said everything.
He sat down near them, purely out of necessity. There weren’t any other available benches to sit on. All of them were taken up by people wanting to enjoy the sun out. He needed somewhere to sit down and enjoy his bubble tea on the lake.
They turned to face each other. The boy started to communicate, to talk. More than his words his palms were open, waving ever so slightly. The girl listened, a pained expression on her.
They were briefly interrupted by the commotion caused by one of the units with the low balcony nearby. Seems like everyone has invited everyone to come enjoy the weekend.
Minutes later, the girl rested her head on the boys shoulder.
The boy wiped something from the corner of his eye.
He got up and walked past them again, both of their eyes were red.
