His mind running through every possible scenario that could play out once he tells her his true feelings for her. The good ones, the bad ones, or maybe, with a glimmer of hope, he sees the best one playing out.
Hey. I’m about to head out. You wanted to tell me something? She asks looking up at him while he’s on a higher platform.
Oh, hey. Yeah, just let me get down and I’ll be with you in a second. He says knowing that he wishes he could actually be with her forever.
She smiles at him. So, what is it? She asks.
Well, it’s just that I…
Wait a second. I don’t mean to interrupt you, but can we walk to my car as we talk. I have to be somewhere in a bit. She asks him.
Yeah, sure. I don’t mind. He says.
As they begin heading towards her car he starts wondering if he should say what he’s about to say. He realizes though that this could be the last time he sees her for some time, if not the last time.
So, I want to tell you that first of all, I am going to miss you so much. You have been such a jewel of a person to me and I can’t believe I won’t be seeing you around anymore. He says.
Aww, that’s so sweet. I’m going to miss you too. You have been nothing short of a sweetheart to me too. I loved the gift you gave me for my birthday and the talks we always had were always fun. You truly are one of my favorite people that I’ve worked with. She admits.
Thank you. You have no idea how much more I think of you as a person though. You helped me open up and were, are, the reason for a sense of confidence that I’ve felt over the last several months. He tells.
Well, I’m going to really miss you, just remember to never lose your kindness and young at heart spirit. She tells him.
Oh, I won’t. But the reason I wanted to talk to you was because I… I don’t know how else to say this, but I have feelings for you, and I want nothing more than to not only stay in touch, but to be with you. He confesses.
You have feelings for me? She asks.
Yes. I know it’s crazy, but I know that I’m crazy about you even more. He says. Every time I see you or talk to you, my heart is overcome with a sense of comfort and passion. I don’t know what I’ll do without you around and I don’t really want to find out. I know it may seem a bit much, but you’re the most beautiful girl I’ve ever known, and every talk just made me fall for you even more. He adds.
But you’ve known that I’ve been seeing someone this whole time. Did you just think that I’d drop everything I’ve built and be with you? She asks.
No, of course not. I just needed to tell you how I felt before you left because it would be eating me alive if I didn’t. You have to understand that I’ve not felt this way about anybody in a long time, which is why I knew not to let you go without telling you how I truly felt about you. He says.
Yeah, but I can’t be with you. I have to go. I’m sorry, but it’s better that I leave now or run the risk that we end up on a bad note. She says.
I’m sorry for bringing this to you. You’re so happy about this new job and new path in life and I’m just thinking about myself and my feelings. I’m so sorry. He says as his eyes begin to weld up.
She enters her car as he says that and looks up at him. Don’t be. Your feelings are nothing that you should ever be sorry for. You are entitled to feel any way you feel like about me, but I just don’t feel the same way. I’m sorry, she says as she starts her car.
That’s exactly why I feel this way about you. I’ve been telling myself that they’re just feelings, but they’re not, it’s love. I love you and want to be with you. I’ve never been surer of anything in my life. Don’t go he pleads.
I have too. She says as she begins to tear up. Perhaps feeling something that she didn’t think she felt.
He opens her car door and says he wants to kiss her.
They stare at each other and then he kneels down by her side and kisses her. She puts her arms around him and kisses him back.
Fine. She says. Having felt a spark that she didn’t know existed between them.
Fine? He asks.
I’ll be with you. I love you too. She says.
They embrace once again as they both tear up knowing that their future is about to begin with one another.
