As she sat there basking in the lingering warmth he had left. She starts to think why was she still there? What was she waiting for? Slowly dread dives into the waters that is her brain — she had fallen once again. She had fallen deeper.
She suddenly realized the things she had sacrificed to gain his attention, to have his time, to feel his warmth, and to look at his eyes. She knew it was a mistake to still be here waiting for him to come back but still she waited. Patiently, she waited.
A famous line from a movie says ‘a guy and a girl can just be friends, but one point or another, they will fall for each other. Maybe temporarily, maybe at the wrong time, maybe too late or maybe forever.’
Reading this line over and over made her wish for forever but deep inside she knows forever shall exist only in her wildest dreams, not even in the sweetest of dreams — only in the wildest and rarest dreams.
He – who has no idea of what truly is – deceived by the smiles and humor she brings, concedes to her warm hugs and empathy. A solemn mask of friendship and companionship – a facade for a secret that lies behind the cages of her chest. The truth, she decided, would not set her free. It will only her further, tear her world apart, destroy her carefully planned future.
