I couldn’t believe my eyes.
I tried texting her for the umpteenth time…and I was shocked when I finally got a reply from her. One I never expected (nor wanted) to see.
We met at a picnic, just the year prior- it hadn’t even been a full year yet when I got that text.
She wanted me to respect her wish to give her space…and if and when she wanted, she would reach out to me.
Tears welled up in my eyes, which hadn’t blinked since opening the text.
And my hopes of a new best friend?
