It was a rainy Monday morning. I packed up my stuff and left the house.
I felt the coldness of every single raindrop on my bare face, a face without make-up. Since my last break-up I truly understand what it means to not just go for the look but also for the personality. I was tired of all that drama and the hard work to look good for someone who just loved my face but not my soul.
Since my break-up I visited the university library. Sitting in a corner in the basement of the library and trying to avoid every kind of thought of him. It has been already a year but the days where I felt worthless because of him just kept appearing in front of my eyes. „NEVER AGAIN! I WILL NEVER FALL IN LOVE AGAIN!“ I put on my headphones, turned on my music and closed my eyes.
I didn’t know how much time has gone since that moment but suddenly I felt a slight touch on my shoulder. I opened my eyes and there was this guy with messy hair and a cute glass. He asked me if he could have a seat next to me because every other seat is taken. I nodded. And from there our story began.
„The hardest thing about ‚everything happens for a reason‘ is waiting for that reason to show up.”
