When it is the responsible thing to break up…
He loved her, just as insanely as she loved him.
In her brown eyes, he could see someone staring back at a Prince.
He is just another average guy, but he is what she wanted. The way he laughs at her stale joke, the way he weaves her hair with ease and grace, his furrowed brows and boyish smirk – these little insignificant details kept her glued to him, as he was to her.
Nothing else mattered, as long as they had each other. As long as she had him who’d listen to her talk about her horrible day, talk about her dreams. Someone who believed she could be the next biggest celebrity fashion designer.
She was content. For she was just seventeen and love was her biggest dream, at the moment.
Then life grabbed the wheels; She gained admission, she could now join him as they both pursue their academic dreams. Then the twist, her dad passed.
She needed him and he was there for moral support. He made the pain less — painful. But with Dad’s demise came uncharted responsibilities – Her siblings would go to school, she no longer have someone to shelter her as she once was. Mum needed help too. She needed more than moral support, she needed financial support too. He knows.
He would listen and try his best to inspire her and keep her eyes on the goal. But slowly, he is starting to realize that he is handicap just as she was. For he is just another average student and can’t provide for her. Can’t protect her either.
He knows what he has to do, for he is the logical one. So he slowly withdraws, he quits calling, starts ignoring her calls too. He tactically avoids her, hoping she’d get the message and move on. Maybe with him out of the picture, she could be free to get someone that could assist her in ways he can’t.
Yes, he is a coward. He is selfish. But he consoles himself with the thought that it is all for her – He would be the devil for a while, he would be hated forever.
But Hey, Love is responsibility. And he doesn’t deserve it, yet.
