You don't kiss someone you don't like.

That's what the vast majority believes.

You don't kiss someone you don't like.

That's what the vast majority believes.
But in reality...

You can kiss someone without feeling anything at all.
"Hey Mari, you're early?"

My brother and I planned to meet early the next day I was about to say hello when i realized Mari was there.
The other night, Mari and I kissed... Although there's no real emotions involved, I would be lying if I said things wont be awkward between us.

"You're not still mad at me are you?" my brother said in a worried voice.

Mari snapped the book close.
And finally turned to him with an apologetic look.

"I didn't mean what I said to you... It was just a joke... I didn't think you'd actually do it, that dare was..."
"Its fine." she snapped back before my brother had a chance to continue further. "It's not like its any of your business anyway." she added faintly before strolling away.
My brother was still a little shaken when I decided to appear.

"Hey man!" I greeted him, but he was still out of it. "Chris!" I repeated.
"Yeah, hey, you came, let's have breakfast, my treat!" Chris finally replied, I was no psychic, but it felt like there was something between them both. Maybe it's similar to what Ever and I had.

Friendship Limbo.

Ours however ended abruptly, and after what happened last night... I'm not sure there's anything left of whatever we had last summer.
I wonder what kind of things she do now. What thoughts she has, what things she draws and dreams...

"Friendship?" Chris laughed at Sofia's sketch.
I wonder if I still hold a little place in her mind.

"Looks more like... something else entirely dear friend."
"You're sketch kinda looks like that guy from last night."

Does she even remember me?
Or should I just forget about her completely? If it's Ever, she'll probably do just fine, right?

"You know... you can tell me anything. Right? Sofia?"
"Hey John!" Claude called me from behind. "Can I talk to you for a second?" "My uncle told me... you didn't pick up the results today." "I know it's tough man, but you must face reality man." "Claude, I've made up my mind."

"Have you? So that's why you were acting like that last night? I'm not sure what happened to you and Sofia... But it was clear that something had, else she wouldn't have ran away like that..."
"She's that girl... from summer."

Claude was silent after this and only spoke to ask one question.

"So she knows?"
"She doesn't..."

I wasn't able to tell her after all.
It's not like I wanted to keep it from her. It's just that... I wasn't given the opportunity to do so. If I had told her... It would've been too much...

Not just for me, but for her as well.

Because this is... after all...

An unrequited love.
It was the weekend before examinations week and I had all night to study.
My friends were busy studying extracurricular, but I had no time for such nonsense. This was my last chance to prove my self, and If i failed, this time, my mother would stop sending me money.

THAT, I could not afford.

-prrrrrt prrrrrt-
It was an unknown number, but I still answered it. "Hello?"

"Sofia!? You have time, can you come out of your dorm for a second?"

That voice, that arrogance, I was sure, it's Matt.
"But I'm not home! I'm at a friends studying!" I lied.

"I can see you, you know, turn around."
And there he was. The boy who I once dated. Now he was just a stranger that I wanted nothing to do with. But if he kept showing me this expression, I might actually fall for him again.

"I saw... that thing... you know... last night.."
He was always watching me now, always concerned about me, it's nothing like when we dated.

"It was him right? That guy, Choke-boy."

I couldn't contain the laughter, I missed this side of him, the one who made jokes, he always made me laugh before.

"Yeah..." I reply half heatedly, but why was he here.
"He made you cry, didn't he? You ran off just like that... I've never seen you like that before."

What was he going on about?

"What? No, you're misunderstanding something here.."
"I never made you run away like that before, nor did I do something so tasteless in front of you. I cheated on you before, you know? That's why we broke up, but I never did it in front of your face, it just makes me so angry." "So why... Sofia? Why are you hurting like... this?"

Was it his ego? Did he care? Or was he just being annoyingly nosy?

"I.. uh.." I was lost for words, especially after what he said next.

"Do you... Love him?"
The door behind me then opened just a second late, whoever came out must have heard what Matt had said, it was so embarrassing.

"Do we have a problem here?" A guys voice greeted us, it sounded pissed off.
But if I wasn't mistaken... that voice... I was sure of it. "Think about it Sofia, and while doing so, remember that I'm still here, waiting for you to come around, I will not stop... Unless you find someone else." Matt left without waiting for any reply from me.

But I was correct...

That voice from earlier... Was John's.

"Ever.... We need to talk..."
'We need to talk' he said, usually it was the other way around, but it's not like we were in a relationship, so why was this line so scary it made my heart skip a beat? We were not friends... Not lovers...

Just strangers sitting next to each other...
Just that huh? "About that kiss..." John started. I panicked and jumped right at it. "Yeah! I heard it's a dare! But man, you must be some girl killer huh? That girl was hot! haha." I stammered. "But.. Uhm, so what about that kiss huh?"

John laughed. "I'm not talking about that kiss..." John continued what he was saying.
I couldnt compromise the look on my face, i had a big "ohhh" of relief, but if he didn't mean that kiss, what other kiss was there?

"The kiss I'm talking about... is ours... I didn't mean to lie to you, but it's not like it was entirely my fault either, we were drunk and did a stupid thing, so I apologize."
"It's okay, I understand." I tell him, but it seems he was not done yet.

"As a friend, I over stepped my boundaries." He continued. "So.... I decided... that we can no longer be friends anymore...

Because as a friend... I can't love you as a woman....

But because I do.... and I still do..."
I didn't know if it was the sound of Johns voice or the beating of my heart, but after what John had said, it was all that I could here.

"What I'm saying is...

I love you...


I love you... he said it in such a cheesy way that the little voice inside me protested, but it polluted my heart, body and mind.

He loves me...
"I just wanted you to know... I'm okay with just letting you know that." "But it would also be nice to know, what I am to you..."

To me John is...
He is a friend, the first friend I had.

He was my best friend. Someone I can speak my mind to with ease. To me John is...

"So tomorrow at seven?"


To me he is...

"You fell asleep here?"
"I don't remember sleeping on your lap."

John laughed.

"I couldn't help it, it was so easy, you slept like a log."

To me John is.

"Hey Chokie!"
The most important person.

"I want burgers."
Hey guys, I know it's been a decade since the last update, but finally! Hope you like this one!
