Unwanted Closeness

The campus is empty, and I’m stuck sitting 20 feet away from my secretary in complete silence all day. Normally, there are people around to talk to her and give her some sociability but now it’s all on me, and I don’t like it.

I decided to go to the library to write instead. There are people there but they don’t expect me to offer small talk and don’t exist in a state of constant fear that I’ll notice them browsing social media when I pass by them on my way to the bathroom.
