Roses are red, violets are blue, I love you, do you love me?
I got off work around 1 in the morning. I had to run home. While I was working I had my cellphone turned off and under the bar counter. When I turned it on, I had 5 text messages and 2 miss calls. Hana had called me twice and the messages were from my childhood friend, who was finally back home. He was over at Hana's where I had been staying since she left for France.
I ran because I missed him and wanted to see him. I ran because they didn't know I was no longer in university and I was out a little late. I ran because I know how Hana is and I didn't want them to be alone together for long. I ran.
Out of breath with messy hair, I raced up the stairs instead of taking the elevator like a smart person. Hana lived in a condo, a very fancy expensive one. She was almost up to the very top floor. She was on the 10th. Normally I would be tired, crawling up the stairs, but now that I was so close to seeing him again, it gave me energy, gave me strength. I ran to the door, skidding to a halt. I need to calm down, control my breathing. I entered the code and heard the beep. I turned the knob and pushed open the door. I walked in and took my shoes off, setting them to the side. I saw Hana's expensive heels, and 2 pairs of men shoes. Who else is here? I didn't recognize the second pair, only my friend's. Cautiously I walked into the living and was greeted by my friend hugging me and lifting me off the ground.
"SKY!" "Welcome home!" He set me down and step back to take a good look at me. "Gosh, you've grown...but still ugly." I glared and he laughed. "I'm kidding."
