He never fails to make me smile everyday. Every time I’m down, he’s always there to cheer me up. I lost the profile of a happy family but I’m thankful to God that he gave Nate to me. It seems like we could do everything when we’re together. As we grew closer, I discovered something that made me shiver. I realized that what I felt for him was not friendship at all. It was something I didn’t want to happen. I was afraid of two things; afraid to get hurt and afraid to lose my best friend. I knew that he would never love me the way I wanted him to love me. I would never be a woman in his eyes. For him, I would always be Brei, his best friend and that hurts.

No matter how close we got, there will always be some secrets we couldn’t let each other know.
One day, we were talking at the rooftop when he asked,
“If I am not your best friend, is there, by
any chance, that you would fall in love with me?”
It was during the summer vacation of our sophomore year that I lost touch with him. He never paid a visit on me after the classes ended. Every time I texted him, he seemed too tired to reply. Then, I got busy about my dance debut. Since he was my last dance, I personally delivered the invitation to him. Unfortunately, there was no one around in their house. I put the invitation in their mailbox and walked away.

My big night came. I could still remember how excited I was;
hoping that he would be there. However, I lost all hope when the
last dance was called and he wasn’t there. I was so disappointed,
hurt and devastated. How could he? Suddenly, someone held my hands
and guided me to dance.
I stood still in the middle of the garden. Everyone went home and the party was over. I was back to being alone with my broken heart. I should be happy. If only I could pretend that my heart wasn’t broken then it would’ve been easy for me to deal with everything. But I was just so helpless. All I could do was cry.
“Why do I always get hurt whenever I see you crying like
that?” said a voice.
