"I am not ... I am not who you think I am. So, please, do yourself a favour and stay away from me," he retorts, his voice shaking with rage.
I flinch in hurt, unable to understand his hostility towards me. My lips want to tremble, but I do not let them. There is no way I will shed a tear in front of him. I was raised better than that.
I press my lips into a thin line, narrowing my eyes as I stare at him. "Perhaps you are right. Perhaps I should finally listen to you and save myself all this pain. Because nothing hurts worse, than living through your rejection, over and over again!"
I don't realize that I am shouting at him, until I am already out of words. He watches me as if I just opened a whole new world to him. But I finally have enough. I turn around and walk away from his shaken stature. My body is aching, it feels as if I am being torn apart from the inside. It hurts. More than anything I have ever experienced. All I wish is for him to come running after me and lift me into his embrace. But no matter how badly I want that, I don't look back. He already took my heart and crushed it into pieces. I am not letting him do the same with my pride.
