365 Days Writing Prompt Challenge: Day 313

313. Playground: 

“That’s my spot.”

“Oh sorry!” I said. I was new here and didn’t know where everyone and everything fitted in just yet. 

I moved my stuff and he sat down. 

I wondered what his name was. 

“I’m Heather, what’s your name?” I asked.

He looked at me strangely. “David.” 

I sat there tapping my feet together and wondered if I should ask him another question. I thought making friends would be easy but it wasn’t. 

“Can I borrow this?” someone else asked him, holding up a bucket. 

He gave them the same look he’d given me and grunted with what I guessed was a yes. 

This playground stuff was hard. 

Worse than that, we weren’t kids anymore; we were adults in a staff room at a school. 

Some things never changed.
