A Few Weeks Later


"Yay! Gwendolyn's here," Dan said from the recording area as I walked in. I readjusted my glasses and set my bag down in a chair.

"Hey Daniel," I said, "Anyone want anything before we start?"

They declined and sat back.

"So, how was your date?" Phil asked.

I scratched the back of my neck and twirled a piece of hair.

"He stood me up," I sighed and took a seat.

"Aww, that sucks," Dan said, "What a douche."

"Yeah, he was nice though," I said, "At least he was before he stood me up... asshole. Ready to go on?"

"Yep!" Phil nodded.

I kicked my feet out and put on my headphones. I flipped a few switches and gave them a thumbs up.

"Good evening everyone!" Dan said.

"That's all for tonight," Phil said, "Tune in next week and listen to us humiliate ourselves for money, bye!"

I switched their microphones off and nodded at them. Music started to play and they walked out. I pulled my bag over my shoulder and fixed my glasses. I was now ready to go home and eat my feelings.

"Bye Daniel, bye Phil," I gave them hugs before heading out the door.

"Hey, Gwendolyn!" Dan called after me. I turned back. "Do you need someone to walk with?"

"If you want to," I said, "I'll be fuming though. Besides, shouldn't you go with Phil?"

"I'll be fine!" He called down the hall.

"Alright," I nod, "So, yeah, I guess you can walk with me."

We headed outside.

"Who were you going on a date with anyway?" Dan asked as we walked down the street.

"I met him at the store, you wouldn't know him," I shook my head, "At least I won't see him again."

"That's quite true," Dan nodded.
