Just another love story.
And there he was, standing right infront if me. "It's been a while, how've you been?" He asked. Oh great, small talk. It's not like we've got history or anything, not like we dated, not like he was the reason i never had credit just a few months ago. "I've been good, how've you been?" I replied, expecting some lame as response like "oh yeah i've been good too" end of conversation, walk off and replay that ridiculously stupid scene in my head over and over again wishing it had gone differently. But instead of that, he hit me, right in the gut, with "i've missed you, sure i could say i've been good, but i'll never be good without you here, with me, us two, together, not like it used to be but so much better. I love you." I stared at him. Speechless. What could i do? What could i say? The one guy who's been running through my head for months, the one person i've thought about everyday, the one person i allowed into my life, the one i gave my heart, the one who broke my heart, just announced everything that i've wished to hear for so long. And so i turned around, whispering "i never stopped loving you" and walked away, holding back the tears in my eyes, trying to avoid that gut renching feeling in my chest. "Laura?" He called after me. "It's too late" i lied. Nights on end, every star i saw shining bright in the sky, i wished one thing, that he'd feel the same way about me as i felt about him, that'd he'd tell me he loved me, that he'd fight for me. But now, now that it was actually happening, this overwhelming sensation of fear took over me, the walls that he once knocked down built themselves back up even higher than the first time. I was scared, not just scared, terrified that he'd hurt me again, but my biggest fear was that i'd let him. And so i walked away. I started walking, i had no idea where i was going, i didn't want to know, i wanted to run, run away from here, from these feelings, from all of this. An hour later a hand tapped my shoulder. "Sometimes it's good to cry, healthy even, it can help us clear our minds. But to think that you're not happy, that kills me. I know i hurt you, if i could change that i would. But i'm here now, i've grown up, i know i did you wrong and i'm so sorry. All i want to do is take your pain away, put that beautiful smile back on your face, stare into your eyes and see that sparkle in them, i want to hear your laugh and know you're happy, of course i want to be the reason for all that, but if i'm not, aslong as you're happy i'll try to be too. I love you and it would mean everything to me if you'd give me a second chance." And before that first tear fell from my eye he wiped it away, held my face in the palm of his hand and bent down, a soft kiss on the forehead. And at that same point my heart screamed "give him another chance" tilting my head back his soft lips touched mine. There we were, standing in the middle of the street, arms wrapped around each other in the most magical kiss. And just like that i realised a new chapter in my life was about to begin.
