Hello! First fic here. Enjoy!
What is Love?
Here's the thing. I'm not your typical heroine. I don't have some kind of hidden devastating beauty which makes guys fall over their feet to get to me. I'm not an antisocial goddess with a traumatic past who just so happens to possess an amazingly witty personality which is used to snag the hottest guy at whatever school go to. I'm not the girl with a sexy hunk of a brother's best friend to engage in naughty and illicit deeds with.
Heck. I don't even have a brother.
Thing is, these fairy tales just don't happen in reality. People around me just have to grow up and realize the fact that love is harder to attain than first thought. We all think that we're in love; we get married, and then decide a little while later that it's not meant to be. 'Love' is as easily undone as it is created. Completely superficial. If that's how it's going to be then I don't want any part of it.
Love. We humans just don't get it. I don't even get it. How can we be so sure that it's love that we feel when we see that special someone? How are we supposed to know that that particular person is the one?
Frankly, no prince is going to save me from some stupid as dragon, sometimes I don't actually get the guy I've mustered up the guts to flirt (snort) with, and sometimes, life is just plain unfair.
But that's just something I have learnt to cope with. No point killing myself over it.
I don't think I'll ever fall in love. There's no redeeming quality about me. I'm not flawless, amazingly nice, or beautiful. I'm overweight, kind of a bitch, and the friend that's always the person you turn to when there's no one else. I'm lame. Hard to socialize with. A last resort. If I ever manage to get someone to return my feelings, he would have to be really desperate.
I've come to terms with these facts. And I think I don't actually mind all that much anymore.
I'm young and aspiring.
There are so many other things I could look forward to in life. I don't need anyone.
Well that's what I tell myself when I get up every morning.
