You remember them: the boys who were friends, but who would never be lovers.
The one boy in elementary school always ready to share his half-melted candy bar with you. The unsigned Valentine. Big round eyes watching you as you opened it and whispered to your best girlfriend.
In high school, they were the ones to scared to ask you out. The guy on the track team who sat next to you in history class. He was easy to talk to and not bad looking. But he wasn’t the one you wanted.
No, you wanted the guy who was quarterback of the football team, all lithe boy beauty and an easy smile. The smarted boy in the class, the one with the real estate developer father, the one all the other girls hung on.
So you let the good guys go, never realizing the ones you chased weren’t at all right for you. The question is, did you ever figure it out? Or did the good one get away?
That’s Maggie’s story.
