We’re going on a cruise, he said.

Ok, he said.

They sat, side-by-side and watched what passed for the sunrise.

“I’m not in love.”


“So don’t forget it. It’s just a silly phase I’m going through.”


“I’d like to see you. But then again, it doesn’t mean you mean that much to me.”


“So don’t tell your friends about the two of us.”

“I won’t.”

A splat of what was probably oatmeal struck then stuck to the poster on the wall.

HAVE YOU TAKEN YOUR MEDS TODAY?, it asked in large letters above a picture of the Sun coming up over the ocean.

But they didn’t seem to notice. They tried not to notice the food fight behind them either.

“Not sure I care for the on-board movie today.”

“Me neither.”

There was a pause.

He turned to him and said, “You’ll wait a long time for me.”

He looked back at him and said, “Why don’t you shut up?”

“Make me.”

He did.
