Jacob lived in a bubble too. His friends were liberal. They dressed alike too, although they favored blue.
One day, Emily and Jacob spotted each other in a grocery store. They were instinctively drawn to one another. So much so that both wondered if this was “the one.”
But then she noticed he was wearing blue, and he noticed she was wearing red. They turned and walked away.
The thing about bubbles is that if they don’t merge, they burst.
