This love story is kinda like...

"If you love it, let it go. If it comes back, it's yours. If it does not come back, it was never meant to be." Thats what Harrison said to me, those exact words when Thomas moved to from London to Florida. I thought I'd have to live the rest if my young age without a best friend. Then I met Cady and Ethan, and they gradually became my best friends. As I grew up, I slowly forgot about the boy I used to make snowmen with, the boy I used to love playing in the grass with. My best friend. When I hit my fifteenth birthday, the promise I made to Thomas was just a distant memory and was at the back of mind, mixed with my love of photography, different hairstyles and boys. I was firm, almost best friends, with Cady and Ethan and we almost shared everything together. Memories of my six year old life disappeared when my mum enrolled me into a boarding school. Harringtons Academy was a new exprience for me and luckily, I had my two closest friends with me. I tried so hard to fit in, thinking that nobody would accept this long blonde haired girl with blue eyes, that I sometimes hid behind glasses. But as the terms passed, I realised that I didn't need to be different to make new friends. Just being myself, I made tons of frienfs, all different and special in their own way. I carried on with ny comftable life, occasionally failing Science, but getting back on my feet. I visted hone every holiday, and my now mature older brother also came back from university, and my sister; Poppy always there with my mum. I wouldn't say my life was perfect, but some days it came close too. I don't think I thought about how Thomas and Anne, his older sister, and their parents would be doing, if his mum and new stepfather would be getting along. Probably the only time I thought about him, was when my mum brought it up, or his mum called to talk to my mum. I slowly forgot him, first how he looked, then his personality. I broke my promise without reailising it. I never thought that karma would get me back. When I first had the guts to look into his eyes, I realised that I was just not the same, and he was just not the same. And when I looked into his eyes again, I knew he intended to hurt me in everyway possible which soon turned into making my life hell. Nothing will ever be the same between us. For the better or worse, I'm not sure.
