i will never forget the way he looked at me. that night, under the eerie light of the crazy scary factory that i don’t even know the name of, mixed with the beauty of the moon reflecting off of the water. i will never forget the feeling i had just looking at those stars, as the water rumbled beneath our feet. scared, because the place was scary and creepy, but so safe because he was with me. i remember looking at the stars and seeing my breath, wondering if this is what love was. wondering if i had actually found what every girl dreams about after she watches a princess movie. if this was the man i was meant to be with, or love, for the rest of my life. silently begging him to kiss me, and wishing on every star in the sky that he would put his arm around me, i watched him smoke his cigarette. he is so cool. is he actually intimidating me? no. well, maybe he is. that’s weird, i don’t intimidate easily, especially by a guy. wow. little did i know that those stars and that moon were witnessing the beginning of something magical. something mad, and completely irresponsible. that was the night i fell in love with him. the night i knew… and the night i broke my own heart, without even realizing it.
