"Yo, how did it go?"
"Fuck! You scared me!"
I nearly jumped out of my skin. Theo appeared from behind a bush with a pizza slice in each hand and one hanging out of his mouth like a dog's tongue. In fact, I don't even know how he managed to speak with it in his mouth.
He sucks the rest of the pizza up, chews around one and half times and swallows.
"So, how did it go?"
"Well, I think I understand her a bit better now."
"Bro, you were sitting there for two hours before the concert even started. The way you guys were talking it looked like proper deep shit."
"Yeah, I guess you could say that. She's had a hell of a life but seems to be so calm about it all. She was even laughing at some points when she was telling me her story"
"Nah broseph. You made her laugh. You're a funny guy. I saw it all. She likes you man. I guarantee it."
"Yeah, the way she looked at you and listened to what you were saying, it's obvious dude."
I guess Theo may have had a point. I do think we had a genuine connection. I snatched one of the pizza slices out of his hands and started to run away. Theo did his best to catch me, his fanny pack swinging across his chest and slapping him in the face.
