If I had taken my time going down the stairs that day.

Things might have turned out differently.

If I had taken my time going down the stairs that day.

Things might have turned out differently.
If I slept a little late, if my alarm didn't go off, if I had picked a different shirt, if i had worn my hair different.

Would it all have mattered?
Would it all have happened differently If I had said what I needed to say that day, If I told you I liked you or if we remained friends.

Would I have met you differently that day, sooner rather than later, or even never than too late.
We only see what's in front of us.

"Hey John! Come meet our team manager!"

But If i had seen the bigger picture, I might have seen something that was there to begin with.

"Here she is! Mari Lee."
If I had looked, I might have seen, but if I payed attention, i might have found something else entirely.

"This is my brother, John."

"Nice to meet you."

"I'm Mari Lee, its pronounced like 'Mary'... But you do look familiar..."
If I hadn't met Mary.

"Have we met before?"

"Have we?"
If you didn't disappear for so long...

"Sofia? She doesn't work here anymore... Sorry.."
If I didn't kiss you... or become friends with you to begin with... Would it have happened differently? Would I have not fallen in love with you at all?

"Oh yeah... I think I remember you.."
If I didn't take that phone call...

"Yeah, I understand, I'll come pick them up tomorrow."
If they haven't noticed me.

"Who's that guy?"
"We have a class together, let's invite him."
If Claude wasn't my friend.

"Hey John! Come hang out with us, were having a little party out back, I want you to meet my girl.
If I didn't attend the party. If I didn't know anyone.

"John! Brother! You're here!"
"I'll come get you some punch."

If my brother didn't leave us alone.
If I had walked up to you.... Would it have made a difference?

Because if i remember clearly, neither did you...
It was John and I was sure of it. Here of all places, what was he doing here?

I was in a momentary shock, unable to move where I stood, like a tree rooted on the ground, I could only sulk, trying my best not stare at them too long.
I couldn't have been happier to see Matt.

"Hey Gorgeous!" He laughed. "Wanna dance!?"

I still hated him, but i needed him that moment. "Heck yeah I wanna dance."
But even Matt noticed I was only using him and got tired.

"You don't need to do this Sofie, I'm not someone you pity, okay? I'll.. I'll come back when you're less distracted."

'Distracted' he said I didn't think he even knew such a word.
It's a good thing he's not the only one I knew.

"Hey, you okay? What's up with you and Mandy?"

"Ugh, long story, I need a drink."
That girl stick to John like a leech, trapping him every opportunity she got. Claude finally took a hint and saved him.

"Hey John, let me introduce you to my girl."
"This is her, Chris D'Luca."

"Nice meeting you."

"And this is her friend, Sofia."
It was strange being introduced to him, he had a soft smile on his face but said nothing until I spoke.

"Sofia Evergreen, Art Student."

He smiled, like a stranger rather than an old friend.

"John Riley, Medicine Student."
We stared at each other longer than necessary that I thought even Chris took a hint or realized something. It's what you don't see that doesn't hurt you. Sometimes everyone else sees it and know that it's wrong immediately. But you don't believe it until you see it. But when you do. You lie to yourself. Making the hurt worst than it's suppose to. But sometimes... It's just too much to take... That you run away. "Sorry Mari."

"Sorry too John."
Hey guys thanks for reading the last chapter, i hope you enjoy this one as well.

Thanks to all the featured CC and comments if you well.
