"I am in love," Cordelia insisted angrily. Alan looked at her with confusion.
"I love you, too." Alan whispered. Cordelia pressed her lips together,
"I'm just not in love with you." Alan's face melted into pure pain. He shook his head stubbornly refusing to accept that the love of his life was in love with someone else. He grabbed the railing for support the mahogany felt sticky under his sweaty palms. He gasped for air.
"Who?" He whispered hoarsely.
"James Clark." Cordelia replied quietly turning away from her friend's pained face.
"Of course. My very best friend in the whole world." He growled.
"Listen, I didn't want to hurt you. You're making me feel like I did everything wrong. You think I chose to hurt you. You don't choose who you love. No one can. Do you think that if I could've I would've chosen someone who I can love without pressure from every angle? Look at every great tale of forbidden love. Do you think Romeo chose Juliet? Love is not an item to be chosen or crafted. Love is an indefinite feeling that controls you and your choices. You do not get to choose love. It chooses you."
