Author's notes: verklingen's challenge. I'm sorry, neko. This is waay more than 120 words. I think I got carried away.
I hate the way you look at him. Your emerald eyes glaze over, they intensify, they form a hungry look. I never got that from you.
You stare at him during breakfast, Potions, Quiditch. You try to make it discreet, but I’m your best friend. I know you as much as you know yourself.
I’m beginning to think falling for your best friend is the most stupid cliché ever invented. Yet, I cannot stop it.
And it hurts.
I remember the night when we kissed. You were drunk. And I was pretending to be. You smiled at me, inched your face closer, closed your emerald orbs. Your lips were a little chapped but still amazingly soft. You are a great kisser. You're just too innocent to notice it. I was loving every second, drowning myself in the illusion that maybe...
I stood a chance.
I pulled away, felt my cheeks flush in embarrassment, my eyes flash in anger. I wanted to punch you, break you, do anything that would make you feel the hurt I was feeling. How dare you?
But instead I chose to walk away.
The next day, you remembered. Not the name, but the kiss. You apologised, and everything fell back into place, nothing changed in our friendship.
Because I continued loving you, anyway.
Sometimes it gets to the point when I want to break down. Cry. Let go. Leave.
“Ron, come on.”
And you smile. Your eyes gleam. Not like it does with him, but close.
And my desire to leave disappears.
