“Him: I need to tell you something
Me: Say na
Him: I love you
Me: I love you too baby
Him: But there’s something you need to know about me
Him: I was in a relationship with a girl for three years.
Me: It’s okay dear, I don’t care about your past.
Him: There’s more you should know.
Him: I still love her. But family problems made us far. She told her parents, they didn’t accept. I haven’t said anything at home yet.
I didn’t know what to say. I felt as if I was blinded. My heart stopped for a moment. I had no idea why he was telling me that. For a moment I doubted my existence.
Me: If you still love her, why are you not with her?
Him: Her parents didn’t agree. And she doesn’t want to try.
Someone was pushing a dagger through my heart. Each word I said, I don’t know why I said them, I just know how each of them stung me. I felt like punching through the wall, pushing my face in the pillow and crying out loud. Every part of me was getting heavier. My mind was dumb. I don’t know what made me say all that.
Me: Tell her, go to her, If you love her, you should be with her.
Him: I have tried telling her a lot of times, but she doesn’t listen.
Me: But if you love her, why did you tell me that you love me?
Him: Because I love you too.
