He looked over his shoulder confirming that no one was watching him. When he noticed that no one was looking at the direction we were in he leaned over and kissed me. I didn’t understand why he didn’t want anyone to be looking at us but I didn’t overthink it. I loved him so much, I just decided to ignore the fact that he might be hiding something from me. To me he was an angel, he treated me the way I thought I deserved to be treated  and when my mind would tell me he was doing something wrong I would try to deny it. How can someone that would tell me he loved me do something that he wasn’t suppose to? He leaned back and told me he was going somewhere, he told me I shouldn’t go look for him, he didn’t want me to embarrass him in front of his friends… I obeyed. I waited for him the whole night but he never came, I got so tired I called a taxi cab so I could go home. When I was walking out I didn’t see him. Where could he have gone? Was I not important to him? My thoughts started taking over and this time I couldn’t deny what was happening. He was either doing something that I wouldn’t approve of or he was cheating on me but how? How could he be cheating on me if he told me he loved me? How can a person possibly do that? I started thinking about the first time we talked, the first time we met. I was so in love with him and I still was, I tried to deny the obvious. I realized why people would always tell me “falling in love makes you blind.” I would get the same comments every day, “you choose the people you think you deserve… you deserve better… you can do better,” but why would I want better if I had him, why would I want someone else if I was deeply in love with him? I knew he wasn’t the type of guy that could take a relationship serious when I first saw him but I mean, “Don’t judge a book by it's cover,” right?
