"Are you okay?"
"Yeah, I am fine," I replied with the most courageous smile that I could muster.
"Don't lie, please!"
"I am not lying."
"Then why did your voice change while saying that! I read your works, you are hurting it's evident, it reflects in your writing. Please don't be sad. Stop thinking so much!"
"Fine! It hurts. It hurts alot because I know it means nothing to you. That you are just tolerating me because I happen to be your friend! It hurts because I love you and I am trying not to, but everytime I look at you I fall even harder. It hurts because I know you don't and I can't force you to...I love you so much it hurts!"
Ofcourse I didn't say that.
All I could say was, "I am okay," and yet he heard everything ❣
