Who: Dave and OPEN
Where: Lima Park
When: Wednesday, July 6
What: Dave is out for a run and runs into someone
This summer Dave was really getting into spending time with just himself. Actually, it kind of fucking blew, but that was what he told his therapist so she'd stop harassing the shit out of him to hurry up and find himself or whatever bullshit she kept spewing at him during their meetings. He already found himself, anyway, and that self was gay, which was just... It was beginning to be easier, saying that in his head, but it wasn't as though he was going to be saying it to anyone else. Except somehow he was filled with this urge to say it out loud lately (probably his stupid therapist's fault) so he kept his mouth shut and stopped hanging out with people just in case he just ended up blurting it out.
Today, after camp, he'd decided to go out for a run. Camp was actually going all right, but that Brittany girl kept talking at him and he really needed some time to clear his head out of all the crap she was saying. After two laps around the lake, he stopped for a stretch at a park bench and looked up abruptly once he realized someone was nearby.
