"_________," Gilbert Beilschmidt, your ex-boyfriend, called out from behind you. He started walking at a fast pace, leaving the other woman behind. "__________, vait. I can explain--"
You stopped and turned around in one fast motion, looking at the silver-haired man, tears streaming down your face. "No. I don't need an explanation. I know exactly what happened. You were cheating on me. All of these years." A sob escaped your throat as you talked to him. You lifted your arm up to your face, wiping away the tears that were staining your face. "Do you even know what love is? Or is all you experience is just the liking of having another girl at you side?! Do you like the thrill of a secret relationship, maybe even two?!"
Gilbert looked at you in surprise. He had never heard you yell like that at him before, at it stung him a little bit. He stayed silent, but looked down, realizing his mistake. "Es tut mir leid," he muttered under his breath.
"Stop. No matter how many times you say that you're sorry, it won't reverse the decision you made to go mess around with another girl!" You shook your head and wiped another tear from your face. "Don't talk to me until you understand what love really is. Maybe then I'll be your friend." You walked away from the man, more sobs breaking loose and escaping.
You just couldn't believe what he did to you. It seemed so unreal. Images flashed through your mind as you recalled all of your memories with your ex-boyfriend. He was so nice, and kind, and everything you could every ask for in a guy. Gifts, dinner dates, breakfast, appreciative, the list could go on forever. Why did it have to turn out this way? Why did the perfect guy have to be such a bad one? You looked around, looking for Gilbert. When you noticed that he was out of sight, you took a seat on the nearest bench and put your head in your hands, sobbing into them. After a minute of that, you lifted your head, wiping some of the tears off of your face and hands before picking up and unlocking your phone. You texted your best friend, Alexia with shaky hands. 'Hey, can you come pick me up? A lot of stuff just happened, and I don't want to walk home...'
Alexia handed you a cup of hot chocolate as she sat down next to you, a cup in her own hand. "Here you go. Are you feeling a little better?"
You nodded and took a sip of your hot chocolate, not realizing that it was hot. You burned your tongue as soon as the liquid made contact. "Oww. Thanks for telling me it was hot." You looked over at your best friend with a smile.
"Hey, __________. Guess what."
"Your hot chocolate is hot." You and Alexia laughed together at the joke before you answered her question.
"But, yeah, I am, a little. Thanks for picking me up and stuff."
"Hey, it's no problem. Anything for my bestie." Alexia put her arm around you in a close manner, rubbing your arm to show her support. She pulled away and looked at you before asking again. "So, what's going on with you and Gilberto?"
You laughed at Alexia and what she had said. You had always found the way she called Gilbert 'Gilberto.' She said it was more fun to say it that way, so you let her get away with it.
You looked down at your hot chocolate. "Well, in short, he was cheating on me."
"I knew something was up with that--- I mean. I'm sorry, hun. I know you really liked him and all, but, he's a player. You knew that going in."
You stared at yourself in the reflection of the hot chocolate, a new tear streaming down your face.
"__________. Look at me," Alexia said, looking at where your eyes would be.
You turned your head to look at her, only now noticing how heavy your eyelids were and wiping the tear that was streaming down.
"Listen. I'm not saying it's your fault, I'm just saying that you should have known that going in. I know you loved that man, but he's stupid to not love you enough to cheat on you. You're a wonderful, kindhearted, beautiful, mature woman-"
You laughed when you heard her say that. You both knew that you were not very mature.
"And you deserve someone who won't cheat on you, like that a-hole did."
You smiled at your best friend and took a sip of your hot chocolate before setting it down. "Thank you, Alexia." You hugged her, burying your face in her neck.
Alexia set her hot chocolate down and hugged her back. "It's no problem, girl. You know I'm always here for you." She started rubbing your back, hoping that it would provide some sort of comfort for you.
You moved away from the hug, starting to feel a tear well up, wiping it away before it could fall. "I'm really exhausted from crying so much." You laughed slightly at yourself, looking back on how long you've been crying. "I think I'm going to go to bed."
"Alright. Do you want me to go up with you?"
You stood up, picking up your cup and carrying it to the kitchen. "Nah, I'll be okay. You can go home if you want."
Alexia stood up after you, worried. "Are you sure?"
"Yeah. Don't worry about me, I'll be okay after some sleep." You waved your hand dismissively with a worry-free smile.
"Okay then, if you say so...." Alexia grabbed her cup after speaking and took it into the kitchen herself. "Go to sleep before I keep you up again."
You both laughed before you turned your back on her, talking. "Night." You started walking away to your bedroom.
"Good night, girl. Call me if you need me."
"I will," you called back. You entered your room as Alexia started to clean up, flopping onto your queen-sized bed. You pulled your phone out of your back pocket, checking it. You had no new messages. You sighed. That meant Gilbert didn't know what love meant yet, if at all. You set your phone down on the other side of your bed, and curled yourself up under the covers, slowly drifting off into sleep. Before you knew it, the world was consumed in black, falling into unconsciousness.
One (1) new message
I think I finally figured out what love is. It's a force of attraction that pulls you to another person. That makes you want to kiss them, to hug them, to never want to let them go. It's a physical action of giving time and money and emotion to someone who you really want to receive it. Listen, I know I messed up really bad. I cheated on you, and that's the worst thing someone in a relationship can do. I'm sorry. Will you please take me back? Ich liebe dich, __________... Please... Ich brauche dich in meinem leben.
- Es tut mir leid - I'm sorry
- Ich liebe dich - I love you
- Ich brauche dich in meinem leben - I need you in my life
