Haley Neilson was thinking about Zach Evans again.
Zach was a shy coward with freckles and big brown eyes.Haley walked over to the window and reflected on her cultural surroundings. She had always loved rainy Seattle with its calm, clean city buildings. It was a place that encouraged her tendency to feel happy.Then she saw something in the distance, or rather someone. It was the a shy figure of Zach Evans.
Haley gulped. She glanced at her own reflection. She was a quiet, humble girl with blonde hair and blue eyes. Her friends saw her as a shy, yet attractive angel. She spends her time teaching children ASL. Once, she had even helped a disturbed old lady recover from a flying accident.But not even a quiet person who had once helped a disturbed old lady recover from a flying accident, was prepared for what Zach had in store today.
The rain hammered like dancing dogs, making Haley anxious. Haley grabbed a large cell phone that had been strewn nearby; she massaged it with her fingers.As Haley stepped outside and Zach came closer, she could see the mischievous smile on his face.Zach gazed at Haley as he began to speak. He said, in hushed tones, “I love you and I want forgiveness.”Haley looked back, even more hurt and still fingering the large cell phone. “Zach, i love you,” she replied “but there is no way I can forgive you for what you have done.
“They looked at each other with confused feelings, like two strangers although they have years of history in their past. Zach began to speak, ” I understand i cheated on you. But I feel that things have changed and we have grown so much, we deserve another chance” Haley studied Zach’s freckles and stared into his deep brown eyes. Eventually, she took a deep breath. “I’m sorry,” began Haley in apologetic tones, “but I don’t feel the same way, and I never will.
I love you Zach, but I am no longer in love with you.”Zach looked sad, his emotions were raw as tears slowly started streaming down his face. Haley could actually hear Zach’s emotions shatter into a million pieces. Then the shy coward hurried away into the distance.
Her first reaction was to break down, until she realized the amount of pain Zach had put her through when he cheated. It had taken Haley years to piece herself back together after Zach shattered her heart and she has finally found her worth.
