"Best Friends" by Living Out A Sacrifice


"Damn it!" she screamed. "It's not fair!!!"

I followed her out of the building and onto the grass. It molded beneath my feet, my heels forming into the freshly soaked dirt. I groaned inwardly and slipped my shoes off, picking up my dress and following her. She was out of my sight now, but she couldn't have gotten too far.

And she hadn't.

She was sitting next to the lake, just staring out onto its dark blue surface. I wished the moon was out. She would've looked breath-taking.

"Oh, Shannon," I sighed, walking slowly over to her slouching form.

"What?" She turned to me, and I could see the steam coming off her breath.

I shook my head, said nothing and plopped down next to her.

She turned back towards the eerily calm water and bit her lip. I could see the thought on her face, and I could see the tears forming in her eyes, just dying to break loose.

"Don't cry," I begged her.

She didn't turn to face me that time, and just remained frozen; it was like she hadn't heard me. I saw the streams trickle down her face, and it was the most beautiful thing I'd ever seen her.

The bottom of her fancy, blue dress was adorned in mud, her cheeks were flushed, her nose was running, and her tears were thick.

"I love you," I said.

I met her eyes that time, and without even taking mine off of her cyan, I could tell that a smile was slowly forming on her face.

It didn't matter that he cheated on her.

She had me.
