an extract from a characterisation i did a while ago - describes a girl's feelings after an unpleasant exchange with her friend. enjoy if u possibly may . x

This time, I felt no guilt, - I wasn’t this sad; not enough to go after her and apologise for her rude-expression and mistaken assumptions. I was asking myself, how much longer I could keep this up; this constant stress our relationship provided for me. If it weren’t for the fact that I needed her for something next month, I wouldn’t even bother! I also did not feel guilty for the fact I was now planning to use her; I wasn’t really; she was the one who always used me! I comforted myself with the thought that I would leave this stupid school in less than a month now, and this thought was very comforting, indeed.

The words she spoke to me, slowly sank in and understanding flashed across my face. It was as if they slapped me right across my cheek, leaving a slowly-spreading bruise that stung. It surprised me, the intensity with which the words affected me. Maybe because the sentence she pronounced very explicitly was ment to knock me to my knees from the venomous message it contained. A message which in translation was recognised as rejection. Of course, I was not a cry-baby who would get upset over something this insignificant compared to the other things I went through in life…No tears!
