I'VE GOT TROUBLED THOUGHTS
AND THE SELF-ESTEEM TO MATCH

Hannah Bronfman & Mýrkjartan Ylvasson

thread warnings
| / |



Myri should already know better, when he pulls into the yellow house that Rose has been staying at and doesn't see his truck already there in the driveway.

But he said to meet him there, and Myri assumes that maybe he's just a few minutes too early. Rose isn't the type to just duck out on plans without notice.

He sits in his car for awhile, just waiting.

But a few minutes turn into ten and move close to twenty when Myri starts to get antsy, starts to worry because he texts Rose back and doesn't get an answer right away. Maybe he's busy, maybe something came up, and that was totally fine.

Except then Myri isn't sure, if it's best to just go home or if he should keep waiting, and then there's a fear there, that he'll turn around and go back to his house just as Rose texts him that he's home and wondering where he's at. Their relationship is already fragile as it is, in Myri's mind anyway, since that night in the living room on his couch, and he doesn't want to make it any worse.

He panics, just a little bit, sitting there in the driveway, when he sees that someone's spotted him from the window then. One of Rose's roommates, he's sure, wondering who this strange car is, just sitting in their driveway for several minutes now, the engine turned off.

It's all these fears, and then some, that eventually pulls Myri out of the car, has him knocking on the front door. If he's going to wait, maybe it's better for everyone if he just waits inside. Or at least lets Rose's roommates know who he is, why he's there, so they don't call the cops.

And maybe they'll have some idea of where Rose is, why he isn't answering his phone, what Myri should be doing in this situation.

He knocks again, careful and hesitant, holding his breath.

He'll count to ten, and if no one answers, then he'll leave.

When Hannah looked out the window and saw Myri sitting there in his car, she didn't think much of it. In fact, she'd seen him and Rose together at least once before so she figured that was why he was waiting out there.

In another fifteen minutes, she would have gone out there herself and invited him to wait inside.

But when he knocks, she pulls herself up from the child's pose she was in to greet him at the door with a smile, swinging it wide open.

"Hi," she says brightly, stepping aside to let him enter. "We haven't met but you're a friend of Rose's, right? I'm Hannah."

Myri steps inside, but freezes there just on the other side of the door, feeling out of place, like maybe he should've just stayed in the car. His eyes wander around the room anxiously, his hands wringing together.

"Ah, yeah, sorry. Myri. I didn't mean to-- I was worried it was getting weird, hanging around out front." And he lets out a nervous, shaky laugh, glancing at her for just a moment before looking away again, so sure that he could read that weirdness on her face.

He's being ridiculous, he knows. He's bothering her. "Sorry," he says again, because he doesn't know how to fix it. "Have you heard from him, by any chance?"

But Hannah continues to smile and closes the door behind him.

"Um, no, I haven't heard from him," she says apologetically. She leaves out the fact that she rarely hears from anyway, let alone when he's going to be late. "But! I'm sure he'll be here soon, and there's really no reason for you to sit out in the car and wait so I'm glad you came inside."

There's a pause and it's maybe a little awkward. Hannah stands there with her back against the door and looks over at the yoga mat she still has spread across the floor, the coffee table that she had moved to make more room for her practice.

Then, she looks back at Myri. "Can I get you a drink? I just made lemonade, or I can brew some coffee or put a kettle on for tea," she rattles off options, a little breathless and her cheeks flush.

"Oh." Myri hesitates, pauses to think a little too hard about what the right answer is. He doesn't want to say no and have her thinks he's rude, rejecting her hospitality. But at the same time, he doesn't want her to make too much effort just for him.

"Just lemonade is fine, please," he says, avoiding her eyes, wishing he had just stayed in his car because it's a strange, sick sort of feeling talking to someone he doesn't already know. He stands stiff, with his shoulders pulled in like he's afraid he'd knock something over, cause some kind of disaster if he moved too much, took up too much space.

So he stays exactly where he is, close to the door, instead of making his way to the couch or following Hannah into the kitchen.

Easier to escape that way, if he needed to.

"Okay!" Hannah says then, glad to have something to do besides just standing there wondering why he's avoiding her eyes. It's odd that he seems to feel out of place there, and she wonders if he's ever been over to the house before to hang out with Rose.

When she comes back with the glass of lemonade, her smile falters a little when she sees him there, standing exactly where she left him. She wonders why he hasn't come inside and made himself at home.

But she goes to him and hands him the glass. "How did you and Rose meet?" she asks, the same bright smile lighting up her face.

And Myri smiles, mumbles through a thank you when she hands him the lemonade, though he's staring down at the glass instead of her when he says it. He doesn't drink it, looks like he's unsure what to do with it at all.

(It's a new worry now, how cold the glass is, how he knows his palms start to sweat when he's nervous. He'll end up dropping it, he's sure, and he holds it tighter than he should because of that.)

He shrugs bashfully at Hannah's question then, on a delay, like even that gesture needed to be turned over and considered in his head for a long moment before he could decide it was safe. His words take even longer. "Just... I don't know. One of my friends from work, his brother works down at the docks with Rose, I guess, so..."

And even though that's how it happened, Myri risks a quick glance up to check the expression on Hannah's face, afraid that somehow it's the wrong answer.

"Sorry.

It's not an interesting story, really."

Hannah continues to smile even though she can sense how uncomfortable Myri seems. Maybe her smile will put him at ease, she thinks.

"Well that's nice," she says and leaves out the part about thinking how good it is that Rose has friends.

"What are you guys doing this afternoon?"

"Oh, it's just..." Myri starts, then shrugs again, wondering how much is too much to say, worried that anything might be too revealing, like a simple sentence might carry too much weight, like Hannah might be able to read between the lines and somehow figure out all the history between him and Rose, why things had been more awkward than usual with them lately.

He continues, embarrassed, each word coming out slow and carefully chosen with an effort that's obvious by his tone and the uncomfortable pauses between syllables. "Nothing, really, just-- he has stuff? On his boat that he needed help with, so I was just gonna..."

He shrugs again, matches Hannah's smile with a small, wobbly and unsure one of his own, a split second of eye contact before he's glancing down at his glass of lemonade again. "It's nothing big."

So Hannah drops it and says, "Oh, alright."

And then there's a heavy silence in the room that stretches on for too many minutes and Hannah doesn't quite know how to fill it. So she doesn't. She's just about to ask him if he wants to sit and relax a little when she hears Rose's truck pulling into the driveway.

She's relieved, to say the least, yet still unsure why things are so awkward, why Myri seems so tense.

"Well, there he is," she says. "It was, um, nice to meet you."
