One of my first nights in college I went out to one of those freshmen get-to-know-each-other type events with a bunch of girls I had been grouped with at campus. I don't remember much about the event, it was so similar to every college event, a bunch of awkward people, but there was this one girl that was so anxious. I made some small talk with her, asked her about her major and whatnot, she didn't really have anything to say. We weren't at the event very long before she said that she wanted to go home. I asked her if she wanted somebody to accompany her, even though that's so out of character for me. I don't feel unsafe getting around in this city and I don't really see why anybody would...but she looked so vulnerable. She said that she did. I rode the safe bus with her until we got to the stop for her dorm, and I let her off. I didn't see her go into the building. I saw her around campus occasionally after that. We never talked again, I never got to know her. I just wonder.
