only fools fall for you.
two years since he’s last seen you.
college has been a blur; things move by too quickly and assignments constantly pile on. the stress builds and bottles up to the point where there’s no room to breathe-- no room to even think properly.
but when he sees you again, it’s a breath of fresh air.
summer is welcomed without reluctance; it’s a well earned break from school and the worries about the future can temporarily be pushed aside for the present-- for now, for the moments that you can finally feel okay without having this lingering pressure in the back of your mind. there is nothing due-- there is nothing that you can start early on for the future and knowing that makes you feel better than ever.
and seeing him again--
you smile when footsteps enter the cafe and the first thing your eyes catch is that familiar mess of hair.
it’s all you can say when he rises from his seat and approaches you with open arms.
