SHE:

I never heard from him again.

Days, weeks, months passed by and still no sign of him. I sighed.

"Girl, you gotta get up your ass and move on. He's not coming for you, ok, Sweetie? You can't wait forever and hope that one day, he will call you or send you a message." I scolded my reflection in the mirror. I have been standing in front of my full length mirror for about an hour now, just looking at myself, wondering what went wrong, what should I have done, and all the whats and whys that I could ever think of.

I plopped down to the floor and leaned my forehead on the mirror and let the tears fall. It's been like this for months and it never got better, I never got better. Why is it so effin hard to move on? It was just a Goddamn kiss! A freaking kiss! But a kiss was all it took to break me like this.

My phone's ringtone woke me from my reverie. I wiped my tears with my hands before looking for the stupid phone. The caller ID did not register any name, just a number but I immediately rejected the call. I knew who it was from. It was my persistent ex-boyfriend trying to get back together. I threw the phone on my bed and decided that I should go out.

I tried to find the prettiest outfit that I could find. "At least I'd look stunning even if my heart is breaking into a million pieces." I told myself as I rummage through my closet. I pulled out a simple flowy off-shoulder dress that reaches about 2 inches above the knee. I paired it with platform sandals and put on light makeup to ensure that it would stop me from crying unless I wanted to look like a raccoon.

I took one last look at my reflection and tried to smile. My face may be smiling, but my eyes cannot lie. They don't sparkle like they used to. Now, they're filled with sorrow. I took a deep breath and headed out.

I ended up in a bar later that evening, having my fourth (or was it fifth?) glass of wine. I chose to be at the bar counter so I can be with my thoughts. I was playing with my glass, lost in thoughts when the bartender gave me another glass. I was perplexed, looked at him and said, "I didn't ask for another glass."

But the man beside me answered, "I did."

I recognize that voice! I turned to face him and my eyes widened in disbelief. I smiled at him despite the tears welling up in my eyes.

HE:

I never tried to contact her.

How long has it been? Weeks? Months? I didn't have the guts to call, much less, message her.

After the breakup with my ex-girlfriend, I was a recluse for a while. I avoided any social contact. I cut myself off from any social media, from anything. I didn't want to deal with people. But I...
