The Single Guy and the Hook

It had been months since the Single Guy had seen the Girl in the White SUV. All evidence indicated that she had found a new branch of the bank to call home. The Single Guy assumed that he had seen the last of the Girl in the White SUV, and he was more than okay with that.

And then, as mysteriously as she had vanished from the bank teller's life, she suddenly reappeared. She came to the drive through on an atypically busy day. Also atypically, she went to lane two, as opposed to the first lane, as was once the norm. As the Single Guy worked on the transaction in front of him, he saw who it was that was sitting there in lane two.

"Well look who it is..." he said under his breath. He greeted her normally, as he would any other customer that comes to the drive through. "I'll be with you in just a moment," he said as he made her wait. Now, making her wait was not an action of vengeance. The Single Guy held no ill will towards the Girl in the White SUV. But he made certain that he was going to treat her like any other customer that came to the bank. To him, she was no longer special.

And so he got to her transaction when he got to her transaction. He asked her if there was anything else he could help her with and then told her to have a good day. She didn't thank him for the flowers he had sent so long ago. He pretended that seeing her didn't affect him in the slightest. And they both went about their seperate days, both living their lives to the best of their ability.

But the Single Guy had to wonder, Why would she come here? Her deposit wasn't a big one. It was one check, and it wasn't even made out for that much. Why would the Girl in the White SUV come back to the Single Guy's branch after such a long absense? His theory: to keep him on the hook.

She hadn't heard from him in a while, because the Single Guy was true to his word. In his last correspondence with her, he let her know that it was his last ditch effort. Maybe the Girl in the White SUV missed getting attention from the strange, but lovable guy behind the two inch glass at the bank. You know what, Girl in the White SUV? The Single Guy's not falling for it! This guy is off your hook!
