I know what you did. Persephone paused, staring at the send button but not yet placing her finalizing touch. She let out an exasperated sigh and shoved the phone in her pocket, crossing her arms across her chest instead. It was no use sending now. She was standing in a lunch line; two minutes from now she'd be sitting at her usual lunch table making stilted small talk with the shallow girls she didn't understand why she was still friends with. They were familiar. She was the more edgy, "out there" one and it worked in the group. She'd never really had reason not to be until now. She needed something to do with her hands. She looked down and they were balled into fists, not so lightly digging into her palms so she unclasped them. To busy her hands she took out the black hair tie in her pocket and placed it between her teeth before bending forward and flipping over her hair to gather in her hands. Once she smoothed out the brown hair and made sure there were no bumps she came back up and hit her elbow into the kid standing behind her. "Shit!" she said, the hair tie slipping from her teeth in the process and falling onto the no doubt disgusting cafeteria floor. Her elbow stung in pain. "I'm sorry, are you okay?" Persephone asked the kid as she reached down to pick up the hair tie, no longer bothering to hold her hair into place. It was going to fall wherever it liked despite her best intentions, just like her emotional state lately.
