The second week of third year of college, I became friends with the dark skinned girl that sits next to me in Psychology class. I do not remember her name; I never do for any of them.
She stopped by my place the other day and we popped a bottle.
“I like how you are a cool person Lee, open like a book unlike many with secrets in their closets.”
I smiled. If only she knew there was an empty jar with her name on it, sitting next to the other jars with heads in them in my closet.
p.s I turned this in rather too late for a writing challenge and thought I’d share it here. As Halloween is fast approaching, it is scare and horror season. Sadly, Nigeria is not big on Halloween even though traditional practices are still very much in vogue. Odd.
