“Uh no. Very much I did not” I smiled. “Hmmm,” he said squinting his eyes at me in suspicion. “Yup, well I won,” I said. “No we still have 4 rounds left,” he said. “I’ll still win” I smiled. “Maybe. But maybe not” he said. I just rolled my eyes and went back to the game. We played four more rounds... and I won all of them.
“Thought you said you were gonna kick my ass?” I raised my eyebrow. “I can do something else to your ass,” he said under his breath. My eyes widened and I slapped my mouth. “I-“. “That’s what I thought,” he said. Then we just stood there in awkward silence. “You wanna go buy food then head home?” he asked. I sighed with relief from the awkward tension. “Yeah okay,” I said. I was kind of baffled by what he said but I’ve said worse so we’ll move on.
I grabbed my bag and made sure I had all my stuff and we walked out of the fair. There was a small restaurant that sold fast food around the block. We walked over there and we ordered our food. “I’ll have a large fry and a drink please,” I said. “I’ll have the same thing”.
“Okay I’ll have that out in ten minutes,” the cashier told us. We nodded our heads and sat on the seats by the door. We talked and laughed for like fifteen minutes. “Oh my where’s the food,” I said. “You seem to lack patience” Aran laughed. I just gave him a death glare and he quickly shut up.
“Don’t look at me like that,” he said. “Or what?” I snapped back. “Don’t start something you can’t finish” he squinted his eyes. “Tch,” I said. “I won,” he said. I just rolled my eyes and drummed my nails on the table. My patience started wearing super thin and I think he noticed. “I think it’ll be out soon,” he assured me. “Yeah okay,” I said.
After like five minutes, a waiter finally came with our food in brown paper bags and cup holders. “Sorry for the long wait,” she apologized while giving us our food. “It’s okay,” Aran said. It’s really not but go off I guess. I just put on a fake smile and gently took the bag. “You’re pissed aren’t you,” Aran said, making a straight line with his lips. “I kinda am but it’s okay,” I said.
By now, it was pretty dark outside. We walked for a few minutes until we came across a small hill in a park. There wasn’t anyone around except for people walking past like every ten minutes. We sat down on the grass and ate our food in comfortable silence. I looked up at the sky as I sipped my drink and was immediately separated from reality. There were a million stars in the sky and it was so bright you could see the reflection in my dark, brown eyes.

I was just sitting on the grass eating my food when I looked over at Indigo. They were in awe and just gawked at the sky. You could see the stars in their eyes and their skin shined brightly in the moonlight. I never understood why I always felt different when I was around Indigo. I was a completely different person. Usually, I looked at the world as a horrendous place, but Indigo made it feel less annoying to live in. I didn’t realize how long I was staring at them until they looked over at me.

I was just staring at the sky when I felt eyes on me so I looked over to my right. We both sat there staring into each other’s eyes while the stars shone above us. I wish things could’ve stayed like this forever. Until I was snapped back into reality with the realization of my father’s warning. “Oh shit,” I said. “You have to get home right?” Aran said. I nodded my head in solemnity. “Don’t worry. I’ll see you tomorrow,” he said, smiling at me.
I felt a little better so I got us and we picked up all of our wrappers and containers. We threw our trash in a nearby garbage can and Aran walked me back home. After about ten minutes of walking and me tripping, twice... we finally got to the doorsteps of my quiet home.
“I had fun today” I smiled. “Surprisingly, me too” he returned the smile. “Bye dumbass. See ya tomorrow,” he waved at me. “Bye,” I waved as I unlocked the door and stepped inside. I went into the living room and greeted my parents, assuring them that I was back. “Did you enjoy your time out?” my dad asked. “Yea. I really did” I said. “That’s good. Well go and get ready for bed”. I just nodded and headed to my room.
I slipped my boots off my feet and threw myself on my bed. I felt too lazy to take my clothes off but I didn’t wanna go to bed in a skirt. So I slipped the skirt off and took off my fishnets, leaving me in my hoodie. It was pretty oversized so it covered my thighs and sat right above my knees. I walked into the bathroom and brushed my teeth.
I walked back into my room and opened up my laptop for another all-nighter. I’ve been pulling all-nighters a lot, most of the time I’ll listen to music or go on tik tok but sometimes I get to FaceTime Aran, this was one of those nights. He doesn’t normally show his face during these so I wasn’t expecting it to be different this time and I was right. That’s ok though we still have a great time talking, I just wished I could’ve seen- wait never mind.
“Hey Indigo”, Aran said in a raspy quiet voice due to him being tired. This made my face get red but I tried to return to normal before he noticed. “Hey Aran”, I replied with a smile. “You should go to sleep. We have class tomorrow,” he said. “Hypocrisy” I replied. “I don’t need sleep. I’m built different,” he smiled. I just rolled my eyes and smiled. “I am kinda tired but I don’t feel like going to sleep,” I yawned.
“You can stay on the phone, if you fall asleep that’s fine,” he said. I just nodded my head and placed my phone on my nightstand while it was facing me. I got under the covers and started scrolling through Tiktok on my laptop. On the other line, Aran was just shuffling his fingers on the controller, his eyes locked on the big, bright screen
I was stuck in the trance of watching a TikTok, liking it, and then scrolling. About five minutes had passed and I felt my eyelids getting heavy. I lost myself for a second, then I quickly jutted up. I placed my upper body back on the pillow and kept scrolling. Then my eyelids get heavy again. But the difference is, this time I couldn’t lift them back up. Then everything went black. ”Good night Indigo” I faintly heard before everything went black.
