"Sweetie, your hands are freezing.." He said.
"There always like that.." I said and smiled.
He looked at me for a few seconds, admiring.
"I love you, Dayoumtii.." He said breaking the silence and smiled.

"Okay, but you do know it'll be hard to say goodbye right?" He said.
"I know, that's what makes me dont want to come.." I said.
He held my hand and kissed it.
I was crashing inside.
I wanted to scream my heart out.
I wanted to yell 'DONT GO' but i didn't want to be selfish.
I quickly wore my sunglasses. "sorry, yalla i have to go." I said as soon as i felt tears are about to come down.
"Wain waiiin shfeeech?!" He said.

"I'm on my way home.." I said.
"No no, correction; you're on your way to my house, now!" She said.
"Laa D, i need to go home." I said.
"Chub, and come, i'll be waiting." She said and closed the phone.
I drove around his area for 10 minutes.
Just passing by his house seeing his car parked in there.
I stopped the car next to his house, i wrote "I love you;;*" on a stick-it note pad, and stuck it on the door handle of the car.
I got in my car and drove to D's house.
I got in her room & spilled my heart out.
"Oh my god!" D said.

"b3d galbii come here!" she said and hugged me.
I hugged her back, "D you're my only chance of surviving without him.." I said.
"Chub, i dont want to cry!" She said.
"Okay." i stayed silent.
Friday 20th of august
I was laying on my bed with my Ipod tuned on Shuffle.
"The luckiest" By Ben fold five was playing and it was the lyrics;
"What if I'd been born fifty years before you,
In a house on a street where you lived?
Maybe I'd be outside as you passed on your bike
Would I know?"
