Unexpected (A best friend romance)
Updated at Jun 24, 2023, 13:40
Evan and I have been best friends for twenty years, we were only three when we met, and I have probably been in love with him for ten of those. I would never tell him because I don’t want to risk our friendship. It is too important and beautiful to be ruined by what-ifs. I have kept my feelings to myself; no one else in this world knows the truth. And even if I did decide to tell him, he wouldn’t be interested. He has a type, one which isn’t me. He likes his women beautiful, slim, blonde, confident, and successful. I am brunette, curvy, shy, awkward and make enough to scrape by.
We were opposites, but it seemed to work for us. Evan has always been a ladies’ man, one for always getting what he wants, but he has a heart of gold, too, which sometimes gets taken advantage of. I have watched many women break his heart, but it never puts him off falling in love again. I think that is the hardest part for me, watching him give his heart to other women, all while a part of me wished he would give it to me instead because I wouldn’t break it. I have dealt with it for ten years, and I plan to continue for the rest of our lives.
Yet, somehow when I least expect it, everything changes and all because of a stupid drunken kiss, one which could have been prevented if either of us had been sober enough to realise what we were doing.
