Hey, how do you feel today?
Well, what do you think? We both know we’re not going anywhere with this…
I know you have the impression that you love him. But really, do you?… How can you be sure?
I just feel it… Really hard. I can’t even explain it to someone else… It’s like – a short break, no longer than a heartbeat – I melt when I see him, when he looks at me.
A sigh. It’s not the right thing, you know? He’s leaving in a month, and it looks like there’s no chance of coming back… What are we going to do then?
We? Well, I don’t care about you. I’ll be happy. He just completes me, I feel it.
But he’s not the right one… He can’t be. Remember all he’s done to you in the past-
It’s your job to remember, mine is to feel, to feel the feelings I’ve been dreaming of- you’ve been dreaming of.
You’ll get smashed. Broken into pieces. It will be hard to find someone else to put you back together. You’ll regret it.
I take that risk. And please stop thinking that much…
Well, still, are you sure? Believe me, you don’t deserve him-
But I know he loves me-
However, if you get hurt-
At least it will be a lesson learned, that will never be repeated-
You know you always say that!
Silence. A heartbeat, then another.
A sigh. I don’t agree with you, but fine, we’ll do as you say. And you’re the stupid one here, believe me. Now lead the way, please.
And I followed my heart. Should I have listened to my mind instead?
