“First to break the silence”

So here we are.

We’re all sitting around the table.

None speaks.

None wants to be the first to break the silence.

I’m sitting by the end of the table.

Watching all of them.

Seeing how nervous they are.

Seeing how they don’t want to be here.

They have other things to do.

More important things.

There’s still none speaking.

They’re all trying to avoid eye contact.

None wants to be there.

I don’t want to be there.

I have other things to do.

More important things.

But I have to.

I have to get this over with.

So I open my mouth.

I’m the first to speak.

The first to break the silence.
