Mixed Drinks

by Greta Igl

I brought you here for a reason. I need this - the rum and Coke, the dim light, the table just public enough to force me to keep it together. I found the letter, the one that says I'm a terrific girl, so sweet, but that you still love her, that it isn't the same. I watch you drink your CC and soda and I think this is it, this is the end, all I have to do is say it. But then you smile at me, ask ready to go?, give me that easy, hungry grin that always makes me feel like, with you, I could be part of something bigger. I swallow, nod, tell myself what I need to hear, that she doesn't want you, so for now you're still mine.
