"The voices." He simply said.
"Voices? In your head?" I asked remembering he's schizophrenic.
"Yeah. They tear me down, they rip me apart. They've hurt me more than any human. They told me that everyone will eventually let me down. No one's worth it."
"That's not true." I said putting my hand on my shoulder.
"Yes it is." He said turning to face me. "Everyone leaves. Everyone betrays. It's what humans do."
"I won't do that." I said. "You can count on me. We can be friends. We can be really close, amazing friends!"
"You're a liar!" He said looking at me with disgust.
"Dude, I'm not. You barely know me! Can you give me a chance?"
"Chance." He mummbled softly. "A chance?"
"Yes. Just one."
"Okay." He said. "I'm sorry, it got the best of me."
"It's okay. Everything's fine." I said, my hand still on his shoulder. He looked down at my hand, then to my eyes. His eyes were dark and full of mystery. I couldn't read them, he just looked lost. Lost in the sky, with billions of stars.
I could see the stars in his eyes.
