Calum ran a hand through his messy brown hair, while blinking rapidly to avoid the tears that threatened to fall out of his eyes. ❝I still remember the way my stomach flipped and my eyes widened when I first saw him. I tried so hard to keep it cool, but goddamnit, he was so fucking beautiful. I remember tripping over the dogs I was walking, and almost falling face first into one of their piles of shit; that's how distracted I was. I was captivated by his beauty. ❞ He smiled at the memory, but instantly stopped, as if haunted by it at the same time.
But, nonetheless, he continued speaking.
❝When you're attracted to someone, it's because of the details. It was his kindness. His eyes. His smile. The fact that he was able to make me laugh when I needed it most. I spent so much time admiring him, figuring him out; every characteristic that made him unique, that I began to notice that he started to fade. As soon as I realized I loved him, he had slipped through my fingertips, falling into a deep abyss of the cruel world. Maybe I didn't treat him right. Maybe if I hadn't hounded him with the problems I'm facing deep in the back of my mind he would have stayed. Just maybe, the harsh reality is I wasn't good enough.❞
