**Alyssa's POV**

Matt says he is happy for me but he doesn't seem it. He seems upset.

"Matt what's wrong?" I asked

"Nothing, it's nothing" he answered

"It's clearly something, you look like you're holding back on something." I said

"I got into college." he said

"Well that's great why would you be upset!?!" 

"Because the college is thousands of miles away from the girl I love." he replied

"What college is it?" I asked trying my hardest not to cry

"Stanford University in California"

I started crying, Matt pulled me into a hug. 

"This is why I didn't want to tell you" he said "You know what, I'm not going"

"Matt, yes you are. I know that this is going to be beyond hard but I'm not letting you not go to college because of me."

"How can I go? How can I leave you? You're my world and without you I feel like there is no air to breathe. I feel like I'm suffocating. I can't go." Matt said making me cry even harder

 I just cried into his chest until I felt something drip on me. I look up to see Matt crying. I wiped his tears away.

"Don't cry because of me" I said

"Why not? You're so special to me and I don't want to leave you."

We sat there for a while, not talking at all. I just wanted to stay in his arms forever, he made me feel safe.

I broke the silence.

"I love you"

"I love you too" he replied

Okay so this is a short one! I'm starting the next chapter right now. I am going to try and make it the longest chapter so far.
