I didn’t know what I was thinking when I kissed her then and there. But it felt so right somehow. Funny how I met her everyday without talking to her but there I was kissing her. Gods those lips… It just felt so right.
I believe though, that what compelled me to do it was because she stood by me when I needed her the most. She couldn’t have known that my mother died a month ago because of heart failure. She couldn’t have known that my father died because of depression due to mother’s death. She couldn’t have known that I caught my fiancee, who was supposedly at an important meeting that she said she couldn’t miss, in the arms of another man on my bed a few weeks ago when I came home from burying my father alone.
But she was always there. She practically offered herself to me everyday. And it’s only now I see her worth.
I broke the kiss and stared into her wide eyes. “I’m sorry,” was all I could say.
She hugged me and told me that she wanted to know me, and by all means I will let her do so.
