I slide into my usual spot at the table, and it's pretty crowded. I'm sitting next to Shyness, who doesn't make eye contact and continues eating. Then I see her.
“You should go talk to her,” Confidence says.
I nod. He's absolutely right.
“Are you sure about that? You'll be humiliated!” cries Fear.
I pick at my food. He has a good point.
“If you don't try, you'll never know,” Curiosity whispers.
Wise words indeed.
Reality stands up and pours his half-full milk carton on my head.
I need some new friends.
Will all of you just shut up!
“Hey, Anger, long time no see!” somebody yells.
Sanity gets up and leaves the table.
“You should really think about this,” Doubt mutters.
Seriously! I want you all to leave!
I get my wish. I look down at the end of the table and see two guys still sitting there.
“Why are you still here?” I ask.
“I started all of this, and I'm not leaving until it's finished,” Love replies.
“And you didn't really want me gone,” Hope adds.
I smile. I take a deep breath, stand up, and walk over to her table.
