“It’s not too late to fix this Riley. Even if you hate me, it’s not too late. Josh is still Josh and you are still you. I know he cares about you, hell he might even love you if you let him.” She said.
Love? What the hell was that anyway? Love wasn’t real. Love broke hearts, betrayed trust, and left you alone in pieces.
“Love isn’t real Emily.” I said. Silly girl.
She just looked at me like she didn’t understand. “Yes it is Riley. Love can be beautiful. You’ve only been shone the ugly in it. But I’ve seen it Riley. Love is beautiful. And you and Josh have a chance to let it be beautiful.”
I wished that were true. I did but I just didn’t believe in it. Not anymore.
