So let me tell you a story about a boy and a girl, about pain and loss, about love and friendship, about being found and discovering love was right next to you all along.
So this boy and girl met their freshman year of high-school and talked here and there but never all that much.
Summer comes and they start talking more and hanging out in sophomore year, becoming closer, getting to know each other more and more as things go on.
They each have the usual problems in high school, grades, drama, bad relationships, not getting along with their parents all the time, etc. They stick with each other through it all, through thick and thin, happy and sad, like a good friend should.
Junior year of high-school rolls around and the boy gets his 1st girlfriend and he had feelings for her he thought were real, but she only wanted him physically, he gets another girlfriend a week after that but she treats him even worse, batters him down emotionally, drove him to self-harm even thoughts of suicide, she lied to and cheated on him. All the while he talked with the girl everyday his closest friend he told everything to.
The summer rolls around and he starts to have feelings for her but she likes someone else so he kept his feelings silent. Later in the summer she left for a week vacation and couldn’t talk to the boy, he spent the whole week thinking about if he should tell her or not, and a week after she got back when they hung out he did, she was shocked to have these feelings come up out of seemingly nowhere, they both brushed it off.
A few days later he brought up what was said and wondered how she felt about it, she was still a bit shocked and he told her he’d be happy with whatever decision she made he only wanted her to be happy even if it wasn’t with him.
Not too long after that they hung out again, he felt nervous the whole time wanting to do something to show how much he cared for her but not knowing how she would react the nervousness killing him, eating out his insides.
Before he left… he hugged her and started to walk out the door… he came back and hugged her tighter and longer, he put his foot in the door and stood shaking, his voice quavering for what he was about to do…
He grabbed her by the waist and tenderly kissed her, uncoiling all his feelings toward her in a single act.
The day went on and they didn’t speak of it at all.
Around midnight he asked her if she wanted to talk about what happened and she didn’t know where to start. So in shallow breaths he typed away passionately confessing his deep, undying feelings for her in paragraphs.
She was afraid to lose her bestfriend and so was he.
But they didn’t let fear stop them.
Now if you don’t know already the boy was me and the girl my bestfriend and now girlfriend. Don’t give up on finding love friends, sometimes it’s the person who you would least expect it to be.
