If you're a teenage girl has ever broken a guy's heart, but regretted it the moment it happened, this is for you. :) If you're just interested in a short story about hearts being broken and put back together, then this is for you too. I hope you like it!

As she sat there, tears silently rolled down her cheeks, onto her lips, and fell of her chin. Her favorite movie was playing silenly on the television screen, but she wasn't paying attention. She couldn't stop looking at her phone, willing it to ring. She knew he wouldn't call, but she couldn't help but hope for the impossible. Numerous times she'd been one number away from calling him and apologizing for everything. But she knew that even if she did gather the courage to call him, he would hang up the moment he heard her voice.

A few more tears escaped the corners of her eyes, then she turned off the television and walked to her room. She changed into an old hoodie, a pair of jeans, and slipped on some sandals. As she walked out the door, she had no idea where she was headed, or what she was going to do when she got there. So she turned ight and just started walking. About five blocks down the road, she noticed a tall, attractive teenage boy with brown hair walking her way, but on the opposite side of the street. He was wearing a nice-looking gray sweater that hugged his body in just the right way. She recognized him right away. He looked across the street, noticed her, and froze at the same time she did.

A long minute passed before he started across the road toward her, hands in his pockets. As usal she couldn't keep her eyes off of him. His brown hair was tusseled, and it made his ice blue eyes even more hypnotizing than usual. When he reached the sidewalk, he looked down at his feet, then up at her. Her heart swelled; it was unbelievable how hard she'd fallen in love with him. He kept his eyes on her for a moment longer, then took a breath.

I'm not perfect. And neither are you. Both of us have flaws that make us who we are. We also make mistakes, that shape us into the people we are today. You made a mistake by lying to me. I made a mistake by not letting you explain. I made a mistake by walking away from the only thing that made my life worth living.”

As he looked right into her eyes, she realized there would never be anyone else for her in the world. Because the boy standing in front of her, the boy she was head over heels in love with, was everything she could've ever dreamed of, and more. She took a couple steps closer, so their bodies were almost touching. He raised his hand and brushed a strand of hair from her face, then whispered, “I love you. And I'm sorry I left.”

She grabbed his hand and entwined her fingers in his.

You might've left the house, but you could never leave my heart.”

She got on her tip toes and kissed him lightly. “And I love you too.”
