She's my friend.
I cherish her... more than him.
I love him... but I love her more.
I thought everything was perfect then.
Until one day
"Heyy... Lili!" my friend, Lara, greeted me.
I smiled at her in return.
"Do you know that guy?"
"Huh? 'that' guy? C'mon Lara, there's a lot of guys here,"
"Okay okay okay.. lol. That guy named Brent?"
"Uh... yeah why?" I asked her, my smile fading.
"Well~... Uh... I like him," Lara smiled, that genuine smile
The smile that I would never destroy, ever.
And with that, my smile really faded.
"Y-you d-do?" I asked her. My heart breaking.
"Well~... yes," she laughed, her cheeks turning red.
I LIKE HIM TOO! I wanted to shout.
I wanted to tell her... but I can't afford to lose her.
If I get him but lose her in the process... no.
Instead of shouting, I smiled at her.
"Then go get him," I said, patting her back.
She smiled at me...
"Aww... thank you Lili.. you're the best friend ever!"
"Thank you for giving me some... encouraging words..." she joked.
I hugged her.
I hope he makes her happy. I hope they'll be happy.
I smiled at Brent when I caught him looking at me.
I know... I know he likes me.
But I just can't afford to lose my bestfriend.
I would rather make her happy than make myself happy
Because she's the reason why I'm happy
And now... I'm gonna make her happy
Even if it breaks my heart
