"You're happy now, then?" The question seemed to bounce off of her back and slam into my face. I stared at her back, trying to ignore her clenched hands and unmoving body. She didn't turn towards me. She didn't do anything...for a long time. It was only when I started to turn did she speak.

"What about you?" She asked. "Now that you've gotten as far away from me as possible, are you happy?"

I paused, my eyes frozen on her back. She didn't wait for answer. I kept seeing Serin's arms wrapped protectively around her, pressing her against his chest. I felt a bitter chuckle leave my lips. I hadn't seen her in years and yet, here was this bitter jealously. It didn't make sense.

So, I'd ignore it.

"I am." I said, just as she started to turn to the corner. She halted to a complete stop, paused and then turned towards me. Her never ending hair seemed to shoot out a thousand feet when she she whirled around to face me.

"That's..." and I was expecting so many things. I should have known. "Irritating."

"Why?" I asked, sliding my hands into my pockets and daring to take a step towards her. Even from here I could see her swollen lip. I wondered why it was swollen and the worst case scenario passed through my mind. Kissing. She was kissing someone.

Not someone.

Her boyfriend.

"Because you still have feelings for me?"

The words came off playfully. As if they held no meaning. In reality, my pulse got quicker underneath my skin. In reality, my hands clenched in my pockets and I wondered just what her response would be. My gaze never left her mouth when she took another step towards me in the hallway that never seemed to end. It felt as if it stretched on for miles. She stopped when she was too close for comfort, yet I couldn't step away from her.

My heart seemed to want to break free of my chest as if it were a cage. She slipped her own hands into her jacket pockets and lifted her chin to meet my gaze. It was as if she'd gotten shorter than the last time I saw her. 

"You're back, huh? How long have you been back like this? Since the day you ignored me in that hallway?"

"You didn't talk to me either."

Anger. Pure anger reflected in her eyes.

"How's Kadri? I haven't really talked to him in a while?" I asked, but my voice just seemed to echo around me. As if the person in front of me wasn't even there. Yet, my burning skin and the blood rushing through my body was proof that she certainly was. Right here. Standing in front of me.
