ASTRAThe conference room was empty when we arrived in the floor. We went inside and sat in silence before Michelle stood up to finally say her farewell."Do you need anything? Perhaps I can bring you something to drink while waiting for the old hags to arrive?" I stifled my laughter before nodding my head. "Indeed. I'd love some soda right now."She smiled at me before finally leaving me alone in silence inside the meeting room. I looked around the place and sighed reminiscing the times where I used to sit here before to discuss the positivity of my career with the executives.

"You're imagining things in your head now, huh? Can't a closeted gay man be friends with a dumb annoying woman anymore?""Oh, please!" He tailed behind me, laughing manically. "We both know— oh, wait! Maybe you don't! Oh, poor thing! Maybe you have yet to confront your own feelings. You're in the confused and in-denial stage just yet!""You sound ridiculous.
