"do you remember the first time you were called annoying?
how your breath stopped short in your chest
the way the light drained from your eyes, though you knew your cheeks were ablaze
the way your throat tightened as you tried to form an argument that got lost on your tongue.
your eyes never left the floor that day.

you’re 20 now, and i still see the light fade from your eyes when you talk about your interests for “too long,”
apologies littering every other sentence,
words trailing off a cliff you haven’t jumped from in 7 years.

Well, it seems to me that the best relationships— the ones that last— are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship.

And the person who was just a friend is… suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with. - Dana Scully (The X-Files, 06x08 - The Rain King)
