I was a young 17 years old but everyone thought I was odd. Because while girls were going around fussing over boys and their looks, I didn’t. So I was the weird one.
It’s not like I was unattractive or anything but I simply didn’t care about such things. My best friend was a guy though and we did everything together.
A year later he went off to college and left a letter for me, that was when it hit me. He had been in love with me for years and I didn’t even know it.
After that, I knew unquestionably that I loved him too because nothing felt the same without him. But he was far away and I wished I could ship my heart to him.
