Prompt:“Did you notice Elizabeth in class this morning and how forlorn she seemed?"
Perhaps I will write her a comforting note, I thought.
Getting an Education
I studied her in the lecture hall. French roll pinned perfectly, eyes attentive to professor, the filigree E on her matching cardigan plummeting down to her pert breast points. But I knew her fingers meditating the single stand of pearls were remembering last night at the lake with animal-like frat boys.
“Did you notice Elizabeth in class this morning and how forlorn she seemed?"
Perhaps I will write her a comforting note, I thought. After all, no one needed an education like she got last night.
“Oh, probably just listening to old Dinmore on the Greeks. That’s enough to make anyone look pitiful,” I turned the topic while I watched Elizabeth amble across the oval, her books clutched close to her chest.
