Birth of a Friendship

by Abigail Gronway

Great misunderstanding
Even greater mistake
Heated interrogation
Public humiliation
And her world went black

Numb and senseless from the horror
Breathing labored from the weight of the shame
She braced herself and descended into the silence

Two feet stood there
She tried to hurry past
Then her hand grew warm
From his hand taking hold
Her mind struggled to comprehend
Do I dare look up?

Those eyes—
Why do they glisten?
Could it be for me?
