Oh, ouch!! I identify completely, with both sides - for a very long time, I had an unrequited crush on my then-boyfriend's best friend (yes, I know, very bad). And I've also recently had to disappoint a friend of fifteen years who told me he was in love with me. Neither situation is easy to be in.
omigosh. i'm crying, it's so unbelievebly sad and sorrowful. I cannot believe he would do something like that. My heart reaches out in sympathy and compassion for you, Mellon nin.(My friend)
Author's Response: Thank you, and this is a true story, the man I love refuses to show emotion, and that is all I have to get over. There is no end.
