We’ve never been friends. But I admired her.
She’s beautiful—though she always denies that—and she’s very intelligent yet never boastful. She’s down-to-earth and very shy despite of what she is. She’s the kind of girl who you would love to respect. Back then, I always opened the door for her whenever I found an opportunity. I sometimes wished that I could help her carry her bag. I know it was weird, but she’s that kind of girl, a girl that for some reason, you would love to help.
She’s a girl who sees herself as strong, but everyone sees her as vulnerable. But maybe she really is strong inside, I only saw her cried once. At that time, I had hoped that I could be on her side to comfort her, but it was forbidden for me, so I just contented myself on sitting with her on the same table on our Laboratory class, while I pretended to talk with some of her group mates.
We’ve never been friends. But looking back, I now hope that I did some effort to be at least one of her friends. But that would be difficult for me, because there was a hindrance at that time; I was on a difficult relationship.
Anyway, I saw her yesterday. It was just an accident; I was on the mall buying some things when I felt a light tapped on my arm. For some reason, I knew it would be her even if I haven’t yet seen her. And indeed, there she was, smiling at me. Then, I instantly felt relaxed like how I always feel whenever I’m near to her.
She was alone at that time, and she was wearing this flowing knee-length dress that really looked beautiful on her. I said hi to her, and she said hi to me. We talked for a while, she said that she was really glad that she saw me again and she wanted to give me something. I watched at her as she fumbled on the contents of her bag. Then she gave me an elegantly looking card.
We’ve never been friends, but after looking at the card, I felt we’re strangers now.
P.S. (1) I feel weird putting this one in my blog. For some unknown reason, it just really feels queer. Anyway, I still decided to publish it.
P.S. (2) My title is It’s her (with an apostrophe). It’s frustrating that Vertigo WordPress Theme just doesn’t support apostrophe, parenthesis, and colon on the title.
