The Best Day Ever

Blake is excited to meet up with his old friend George after months of no contact. They meet
up at their favorite park. Throughout the day, despite the pair doing their favorite activities
with each other, the chemistry between the two friends is off. Blake tries his hardest to get
conversation and a connection with George, but George gives little responses or effort. The
day turns out horrible, so Blake interrogates George over his attitude and distance. George
snaps and opens up about his feelings, revealing he distanced himself from Blake because he
felt that Blake would’ve looked down on him for being emotional. Blake responds by giving
George reassurance. Weeks later, the two meet in the park to repeat the day all over again, but
with their friendship repaired.
