Maybe in another life, we would have been more than this.
More than just friends. Best friends, really.
Instead, I watch you with your arms around another. Your sweet words and that usual charm directed towards someone else.
It’s okay—I was never meant to be yours to begin with.
Countless memories and lingering moments have shifted into a startling perspective.
I’ve spent my years chasing my dreams, my ideal girls, my career in football.
But then it happened, over the course of one night, my entire vision centered around someone I didn’t anticipate.
A girl who has been here all along.
