“What happened?” He asked.
“Nothing.” She answered.
He knew what a girl’s nothing meant. So he asked again.
“Please tell me. Tell me what’s wrong.”
She looked up at the empty sky and sighed.
“Everything.” She replied.
Unfortunately, everyone knows what a girl’s nothing means but no one knows the secret behind her everything. He took her into his arms and for a second, she wanted to give up to what she felt for him but she didn’t entirely do it. She was afraid. She knew that it was too good to last.
“I don’t want you to get tired of me.” She finally said after a long uncomfortable silence.
“I won’t.” He promised. She wanted to believe him but she knew by doing that, she would just be fooling herself. He continued, “You know, you do a lot of annoying things..” he said jokingly. “I still don’t get tired of you. Don’t worry, I won’t.” He said and kissed her cheek. There really was honesty in his voice. ‘You don’t know what you’re getting yourself into.’ She almost said.
As the days passed by, their magic began to fade away. No kisses resulted in fireworks and there was no hand holding anymore. There was an awkward tension between both of them that lasted forever. When he was finally asked, he said: “I just don’t feel that spark anymore.”
She wasn’t surprised. Everything happened just how she had predicted. She smiled at him, walked towards him and kissed him goodbye. “What happened to us?” He asked. “Everything.” She replied.
