From Our Readers: What Are We?
To be honest, I don't know where to start. I've always laughed at how people always mistook us for a couple and you'd just shrug. Nothing really bothered me back then. I mean we're just friends, right? But then everything changed after the day we went out with our group of friends.
You looked after me the whole day. You were too caring and too sweet. You would take my hand every now and then, and hold it while we were walking. On our way home, you were too clingy to the extent that you wanted to change seats with one of our friends so that you can sit beside me and so that you can lean your head on my shoulder while sleeping.
It may seem normal to you, maybe, but our friends see it as something else. And, to be honest, I saw it as something else.
As days passed by, you became sweeter. You started sending me sweet messages and sweet snaps. You would compliment me, tease me, and annoy me more than usual. You became much closer to me.
But what makes me question us more is that, you started saying you love me. You would always send messages saying that you love me, you miss me, that you're thinking about me, and that you'll always be beside me. I try not to feel anything about those changes. I tried so hard but even our closest friends had something to say about what's been happening recently.
I try to ignore them, shrug them off. But I'm still confused. So now, I just want to ask. What are we, really?
