One of the girls just stared; stared with a soft grin that was innocent, yet not vulnerable – knowing, but not boastful. Just awareness of truth. Her lips didn’t part as she had no words to offer on the matter. She knew that would be a waste of time. If anything it would make it worse.
The other girl talked. She didn’t think it was a waste of time; in fact, she enjoyed it. She saw her friend’s stare and grin and knew she was just being polite.
