"My heart was broken like a torn tape. The age of 18, we fell in love easily… And worry too much about little things. The age of 18. The adults casually say… At our age, we laugh at the simple things. But at that time, we were serious. It was intense and harder than other adults. In 1997, when we were 18, things were like this."
A secret refers to something I don’t know about others. As I find out what I’ve believed isn’t the truth, secrets become more secretive. Things I believe to be true aren’t always true. The human mind is infinite. Neither its depth nor its end can be known. Some days, they fight to the death. Other days, they share their love for each other. A normally hot blooded, curious young male becomes a coward in front of girls. Yes, the truth is inconvenient. But if we don’t accept that, we have to live with lies. We have to accept inconvenient truths. What we see is not all we know.
- Girl: Do you know? I spent a lifetime learning one thing. Possession is the beginning of losing it. But in the end I still couldn't learn. I can't accept. Having youth is actually the beginning of losing youth. Having a marriage is actually the beginning of losing the marriage. Having reputation, actually, it can also be lost. Having wealth is also the same. Health is also the same. Even, raising a dog is the same. Possessing love... Oh God! Losing a loved one is even harder to accept. Why is it that everything I pursue in life, I actually start losing it, as soon as I gain possession of it! If I never have it... Then I won't have anything to lose, isn't it right?
- Boy: Now, do you know... the reason why... I don't love you?
- Girl: Because possession...
- Boy: ...is the beginning of losing it.
Judgemental. I considered the word judgemental. The mental state of always judging. His tone. I knew he wasn’t singling me out. I knew this was probably the way he always was.How They Met and Other Stories by David Levithan
There are two kinds of people in this world. Hopeless romantics and realists. A realist just sees that face and packs it in with every other pretty girl they’ve ever seen before. The hopeless romantic becomes convinved that God put them on earth to be with that one person.
