“Why…” She asked as she tried to push away, turning her head. I released my hands from hers and put them on the sides of her face making her look back at me. “Why can’t you just stop!?” I couldn’t, she made me realize everything. She made me a better man, she challenged me, and no matter how hard she fought against me – she cared. I understood her as she was someone you would be lucky enough to have in your life. She was that something more we long for & through my reflection I realized she was my friend.
