15. Title: The One That Got Away

“Do you think he crashed the car on purpose?”

“I doubt it. They were both pretty drunk, I’m told.”

“But what about the drinking? I didn’t know he was a drinker. I could have sworn he’s more responsible than that.”

“Just because he drinks a little doesn’t automatically mean he’s an irresponsible guy.”

“Oh sure. But when he’s the designated driver?”

“You’ve got a point.”

“Maybe his drink was spiked.”

“Oh come on.”

“You can’t rule it out as a possibility!”

“Fine. Let’s say someone did pour some vodka into his soda.”

“Yeah! Someone who knew he’d be driving on an unsafe road that night!”

“Why would anyone do that?”

“We don’t know what other people’s motives are!”

“…”

“Too bad, though. The girl was really nice. Really pretty, too.”

“So those are the words that sum her life up, huh. ‘Really nice’ and ‘really pretty, too’.”

“I don’t mean to be disrespectful… I just, didn’t really know her in person, you know?”

“She was an amazing person.”

“Oh.”

“…”

“You knew her well?”

“Very well.”

“You must be crushed, then.”

“We are all crushed.”

“You’re taking their death very well.”

“You just think I am.”

“Oh. I see. I’m sorry.”

“I am, too.”
