You Haunt Me

iii. February 14th, 2011

“Why is literally everything that’s on right now stupid romance shit?” John asked, flipping through the channels.

“Probably because it’s Valentine’s Day,” Rae responded.

“We are the only people on this planet that are single,” he splayed his arms out dramatically across the back of the couch.

She giggled. “I highly doubt that, John.”

“When will you just admit your undying love for me and date me, Rae?” he joked, poking her ribs.

“Stop,” she laughed, pushing his hand away.

“I know, I know,” he sighed. “Unrequited love.”

While he was kind of joking, there was some aspect of truth, and Rae knew it. He had tried to date her back in high school, but she was afraid of losing him as a best friend. While he understood, he still couldn’t shake the feelings he had toward her.

She also knew that she had at least some sort of feelings for him as well, but the thought of them alone terrified her, so she usually pushed them to the side.

“Love sucks, anyways,” he chuckled.

“Love sucks,” she repeated, laughing with him.
