The reason why they’d stare at each other in a crowded room and feel that the world was thiers and yet turn thier backs.
They both made a promise to someone else and somehow, with a sigh, this is always how their story would end, filled with what-ifs and what-nots, never truly knowing the reason why thier lives touched, even for just a moment.
