Some things don’t really come as you expect it.
Like you. It was one day that me and our seatmates got teamed up for a group report. You weren’t talking to me, I found it weird. We were seatmates for almost a week and you started talking to me. You have this sense of humor that was really my type. We talked about the girl that’s crushing on your bestfriend. I realized that we were talking behing other people’s backs, but I didn’t mind. I was with you. You lit my phone up by messages, and it seemed that you were more comfortable talking to me that way. I even stood up late just to talk to you until you fall asleep because you wanted me to.
Until one day, we stopped talking.
I wanted to blame our adviser for changing our seating arrangement, but that was being shallow. I started to think that you were giving me hints. I tried to send you messages, you replied but it was nothing but a dry conversation. I came to the point that I felt stupid. I felt stupid because I already saw you with her, happily chatting like the way we were. I counted the months that we weren’t having communication.
I’m like a child counting the days ’til Christmas but the difference is, there was nothing to watch out for, or is there?
