- Cassie squeezed her hands together nervously as she sat in the dark boot at Lenny’s and waited for her date to show up. It was her first time saying yes to someone from the dating app, and she was bubbling with nerves. What if she doesn't like her? Or what if she isn't her type? Or what if someone at her school was playing a joke? After all, she had used her picture and name, so it could be plausible that someone would know who she was and catfish her. Cass, however, hoped she is wrong, prayed tonight would go smoothly. Instead of one of the many ways she believed it would go wrong. Feeling anxious, She checked her watch for the third time. She had arrived fifteen minutes early, and only ten minutes had passed, so her date wasn’t late. Still, she couldn’t calm her nerves. And it only got worse when the five minutes passed and then another ten. Her date was now ten minutes late; she looked at the barely visible door and fumes. She had not thought of the possibility of being stood up, but right now, it was the only thing on her mind.
- “Maybe I should leave.” She says out loud to herself.
