After three days in isolation, their eyes had met all of a sudden. He had waved cautiously, and she had waved back, happy to see another human being. This continued for a few more days, till one day he held up a sign with a phone number written on it. She had grabbed her phone, then called him, and now they met this way every day. They had never met face to face; they had never held hands or kissed. Yet Candice felt like she was falling in love with him, and she sensed that he felt the same. Maybe it was just the situation, but she had never felt like this before. They could talk for hours on end. Sometimes, they’d listen to music together. He had an old-fashioned record player, and he’d play her a song, and then they’d listen and talk about it afterward. Yesterday, he had even recited a poem for her, one he had written himself, just for her, he said. Today, he had told her how he couldn’t wait to take her out once this was all over. Candice could hardly wait either. She liked Bryan more than any of the men she had dated on Tinder, and there were a lot of those. There was something so pure and simple about their relationship if you could call it that. It was just easy, and as people were realizing in their solitude what was really important in life, she was wondering if she had prioritized things wrong as well. Candice had been shooting up the career ladder all her adult life, and she had barely allowed herself any time for love.
A casual date here and there had often ended in just as casual sex where she told the guy to leave once it was done. She hated it if they asked to sleep over and kicked them out as soon as daylight came knocking. No breakfast, no kiss goodbye. She had liked her solitude; being alone kept her mind clear and focused. Now, she’d do anything to break that silence and get rid of the deep loneliness gnawing at her. Sometimes, she wanted to scream, or just run out into the street, hugging anyone she might meet. She had no idea how badly loneliness hurt the body, how terribly you could miss something as simple as a hug. How the body almost craved physical contact after a few weeks in solitude.
Candice felt a tear escape her eye and wiped it away. Bryan couldn’t see it from where he was standing, but she had a feeling he shed a tear every now and then as well. It was wearing on everyone being cooped up like this.
“So, what are you having for dinner tonight?” he asked.
“I made a vegan casserole,” she sniffled, pressing back the sad thoughts. They weren’t doing her any good.
