- “B, it’s been a week, and you still haven’t called me back. I miss you. Papi misses you too. I still don’t get what you see in Papi, but I want to understand. And I know I’ve apologized a couple of times, but I hope you know I’m sorry. I haven’t been much of a friend to you these past couple of months, maybe ever. I plan to change and make it up to you, so you have to come back. Please B, call me back.” I sigh and end the call as Carlos walks through the door. He's finally made me realize that this was never about me. And even though I'm not entirely happy they are dating, I recognize their happiness is more important than any mild discomfort.
- “Nothing?” Carlos asks, pulling me back to the present. I shake my head and sigh.
- “No. My messages are still unread, and she hasn't returned any of my calls.”
