-Julian parted from her as he tried to think of a good way to make things ok. It was probably not going to be though. They had plenty of history to make their meeting plenty awkward….
Time passed and Julian looked at his watch. He headed over to the woods near the school. It was the same place she told him she had missed him… He was so lost in nostalgic thoughts that he hadn’t even heard her coming.-
Just when he turned around to leave, she did the same, without looking back. Until she could no longer feel his esscence, losing him into the crowd of the city.
And when he arrived into the woods, she was already there, watching, waiting for him. She stayed there quietly, observing him until he was close enough to show up.
She jumped off the tree, landing in front of him - You seem distracted, that is unusual on you … Is there something wrong?
-I did it because I had to. I am still unstable to be with someone, Julian.-
She rose her sight, only to find his sight, full of pain, hidden behind his braggy and distant attitude. She drew herself closer, or tried to, hesitating in the end. If her presence already hurt him, her closeness would end up destroying him. And she couldn’t bear hurting him anymore.
-All what you mention, is what I think and feel. You have to forget me, even if I cannot forget you. Because no matter how much time passes, it was with you when I felt most human.-
“I’m telling you Laura its hard. I’ve tried but I can’t, I guess neither of us can…. Look maybe we need to let things cool down and just… Just try again?”
-Julian didn’t know what else to do but try and start fresh. He wanted something between them. Friendship? Or something more? He didn’t know but the pain they felt now wasn’t an option he liked.-
“Why don’t you meet me on the school grounds later. When were a bit… Calmer. We can just… Talk.”
- Try again?…-
She repeated his word as an echo, quietly. She bites her lip while her sight was stamped on the floor, thinking about his words. Start something again it was an option that she were looking for a long time, and she never thought that the opportunity would have come in this way… with him.
Ok… - She answered to his first question, at the time she rose her sight to see him. - I will be waiting for you on the school grounds … but just to meet you … I do not want anyone else to see me.
