Jack of Spades

When he met her, he promised to be her salvation and in the end clung to her for his own. She knew he wanted to impress her so she listened amusedly to his rants, pretending he was brilliant. He fought wars over whether he was the most important person in the world or the least. They told each other vulnerable, soul-baring lies, conversing endlessly and insubstantially. She is beautiful and one night he kisses her in the dark. Surprised and embarrassed, she runs, pretending she did not expect this to happen. He gets tired of waiting and tries to forget her.
