Rebecca Sallose didn’t have a boyfriend, never did have a boyfriend, and frequently told herself that she never would. She would die alone, a spinster, perhaps with lots of cats, like an old, mad cat-lady. Who lived in a bungalow; and never wore purple like the poem; and never brushed her hair; and wore old, unwashed rags that stunk of cat litter; and watched cat documentaries; and maybe practised witchcraft in her free time.
That, in Becca’s mind, was her own future. She wasn’t exactly what you might call an “optimist”.

He knew before he sat an exam that he would fail. He knew he would buy a dud before he even shopped for a car. He knew he wouldn't get hired before attending an interview. And he knew that Kelly would never date him. His predictions were proved wrong on a daily basis, he passed tests, the coffee shop took him on and his car ran just fine. But somehow all that didn't shift his perception one bit, he stayed just as resolutely negative about everything else in his life, including Kelly.

This night soon was about to become a memory. This person who was now sitting with him was going to become a silhouette once they part their ways. Their conversation will become nothing but a record that will be played over and over in his head. Promises made to stay in touch or to meet during next visits will soon fade away with time and all that will remain is its fragment. People tend to say a lot of things, commit in the heat of the moment, make you believe that not every goodbye mean they won't meet in the future but that's how it was in reality. Baekhyun knew now that words should never be trusted.
