The Night Class, Part 10

The-Night-Class

The call I wasn’t expecting came while I was at work. My phone showed “Miranda Lee,” so I took my second break of the day to answer it out on the smokers’ balcony. “Chelsea’s missing,” she said, instead of “Hello.” “What happened?” I asked. Chelsea was Nick’s sickly friend-with-benefits, who had roped Miranda into that night at the bar. “I’ve …

The Night Class, Part 9

The-Night-Class

I had to talk to Miranda again. But I didn’t have her phone number; I didn’t even have her last name.

The Night Class, Part 8

The-Night-Class

For the first time in three years, I couldn’t face going back to the Grappling Club. I hoped if I could avoid Nick, I could pretend the night with Miranda had just been a one-night stand, nothing bizarre or sinister.

The-Night-Class

Miranda’s apartment was just a mile walk away. Maybe I should have tried to talk her out of bringing me home, but neither of us was in any shape to walk home alone. Miranda didn’t seem to notice that I wasn’t talking. She was just going along with what Nick had told her. I thought I knew why, but I …

The Night Class, Part 6

The-Night-Class

After practice one night, Nick followed me to the bus stop. “I’ve figured out how to pay you back,” he said. “You really don’t have to,” I told him, but he wouldn’t hear it. “You don’t have a girlfriend, right?” he asked. The answer was “No.” I’d left my love life alone since the Grappling Club gave me something more …
