Instead, they can better use their time — to heal up and move on if they liked you, to date other people, or to pursue their own interests in hobbies.

As he watched the scene unfold, Adam was transfixed, and then quickly revolted; he reached over and stopped the video. He moved over to his bed, a twin with a sturdy, wooden frame, and lay down on the crumpled blue and white cloud-print sheet. Band posters clung to the surrounding walls. Directly across from the foot of the bed was a bookshelf housing an impressive collection of horror novels.
