It was the look that erased the cynical Jersey snarl she perfected to keep people at arm's length. It was the smile that reminded you of what it was like to fall in love with her at the beginning of time.
This particular smile only happened maybe twice a year, and here I was, catching this orchid bloom for the first time in what felt like forever. It was the smile that made you forget she was the only one in the world that could infuriate you, a smile that reminded you that this force to be reckoned with was also capable of loving with more heart than you or anyone else deserved. I noticed her sister's side glance as she tried to imagine what must be going on in my mind.
She hadn't made any close friends back in New York and had no one to talk to.
I didn't want to talk, but once I heard her cry, I didn't know how to hang up.
You can read your ex boyfriends mind and see if he does want you back, just look for these 3 revealing signs.Instead of the distance making us grow apart, it made it easier for our relationship to grow in a natural and non-romantic way. The sound of spoons and forks clanging on plates soundtracked several seconds of silence. Soon enough, we were giving each other advice in our new relationships, quick to point out behavioral and emotional flaws in each other in a way that only best friends could get away with doing. We knew long-distance wouldn't work for us, anyway, so we cut our inevitable demise short with the intention of saving our friendship. I was touched that she'd asked, and I was happy to do it. "I knew I could put you to work since you didn't have to put on a dress and get all dolled up." With tears came sass, like always. Like true friends, no circumstance could keep us from being there for each other.
And despite our rocky last year together, the final goodbye was a wet and hysterical affair at the Oakland Airport. My friends' reactions ranged from "You're a good guy, but that's crazy," to, "Oh hell, no," and everything in-between. Yet everyone's reactions caused me to second-guess myself. "If I had known how crazy wedding preparation is, I would've let you pick the dress," I said. And one day, when you get married, I'm going to make sure your day is perfect, well, as long as your wife isn't a crazy ass bitch. Ours was an old friendship, and it was rare and earned.
