Lost and insecure

You found me, you found me

Lyin' on the floor

Surrounded, surrounded

Why'd you have to wait?

Where were you? Where were you?

Just a little late

You found me, you found me

Track: You found me by The Fray



"Alice, you have no idea how happy I am to meet you although I'm a bit shocked that you and Travis are already engaged but it's not a problem at all. Whatever my grandson saw in you, I know it's pretty special because he chose you."

"Thank you so much." I smiled. Even though everything was an act it still felt good knowing that his family likes me.

"You're the answer to my prayers..... if it's okay I want to ask a favor from you."

"Ah sure.  Anything..."

"Travis...." I can't miss the mist in her wrinkled eyes and the readable pain inside them. "He's broken, he may appear strong and cold but inside of him is a broken and vulnerable child..."

"I... I don't understand." Why is she telling me these?

"You're not like his recent flings, I could feel it."

"What do you want me to do?"

"His heart, it's broken or more like damaged I should say. He's not like that before not until...." She stopped, what is it? What does she want to say?! "Alice, I trust you and I know he'll one of these days let you in. Please... be patient and when he finally did, melt the ice that surrounds his heart....... And fix every broken piece of it."

*end of flashback*

and fix every broken piece of it..................

I ain't getting anything at all. He's sort of broken? Who broke his heart? Why? Is that the reason why he acts the way he does? Ugh! I want to know what his grandmother means. The very thought of him broken or in pain, gives a strange ache in my heart. I have this feeling of wanting to comfort him, make him feel safe, loved. I've been really feeling weird lately, real weird. What's happening to me?! I know I should never feel this way towards him, like ever. It's not right, no matter how desirable the idea of spending a lifetime with him...

I groaned in frustration I wanna slap myself so hard. What am I thinking?! Ugh, no. No. No. I shouldn't fall for him. And even if I did there's no possible way he'll fall in love with me just the same, I mean look at me? Nothing special it's like you're asking a king to love a pauper. I laughed bitterly... 

Stupid heart. Stupid brain. Stupid weird feelings. Closing my eyes despite of the carousel of thoughts playing on my mind letting sleep drag me.

The continuous ringing of my phone pull me back from my dreamless slumber. What the hell?! I should've kept it silent!

"Hello?" I spoke groggily with my eyes still tightly closed.
