Margie stared into her half empty glass as tears trickled down her cheek. The jukebox was playing “Unchained Melody,” and she thought of Bobby and how he had left her for another girl.
The alcohol was suppose to medicate her and make her feel better but it was only making her feel worse. She had come to the pier to enjoy the evening and forget about Bobby. Unfortunately, neither had worked.
As she drank her drink and cried her tears, she saw a girl and boy holding each other out on the pier and she felt her heart break again.
