That’s good. You’re good together.
I took a deep breath and looked away. You’re being oblivious on purpose. Why must you make it so hard?

I—I just need to know… if there’s any chance with us.. getting back.
The tears started to well up behind my eyes.
I’m sorry, I’m so very sorry. I know that I’m ruining the friendship that we’ve rebuilt. I’m sorry. It’s just—
Hey, it’s fine. Look…
No. It’s not. But you need to know. I need to know. I love you. I always have. And I think I always will. When you said that you’re the standard for everyone else, you’re wrong. You’re not my standard. I don’t bother comparing them with you because I know you’re different. We’re different. And I don’t care that I’m not the girl you loved the most. I don’t care. I love you. And I am willing, once again, to risk everything. I’ll lose him. I’ll lose you. But you need to know. So there.

The stars twinkled innocently, unaware that someone’s heart is about to get crushed for the millionth time.
