#19 Avoiding

"You tend to avoid problems," said a friend, on a ride back home.

"I know," I replied, not denying anything.

"But everyone has their own coping mechanism, yes? No worries," she tried to cheer me up. Well, cheer herself up too, I guessed.

"Indeed. That's why I write. So I couldn't hide. Nor lied. What about you?"

She shrugged. And that night were spent in silent.
