Slipping Away By Chance, Not Choice

I saw her sit all to herself in college. She wasn’t her chirpy old self. She attended class and after college excused herself and headed home. Sometimes, we need our own space and so I didn’t intrude. But this went on for a while so I enquired if everything was alright and all she said…
