The Loving Game
I look at him thoughtfully."Alright, let's play a game. The game of love. It's a game of...chances. We will flirt, we will text, we will call each other late at night, and we'll fall asleep thinking of each other. We'll hold hands, go out on dates, we'll kiss, we'll make believe we're the cutest couple in the world, and the only ones who will know otherwise...will be us. It will be a shocker. No one we know would believe we would fall for each other. That's the best part, and the challenge. It's the best play in the world, and we're the starring actors who landed the role. We'll pretend to have hopelessly fallen for each other. The game will go on around 4 months. Today's November 1st. So we have until New Years, where we can break up. The only condition?" I pause. "Don't fall in love."
