King of Hearts

She does not believe in “love at first sight” but she falls in love with him the first time she sees him. He is afraid of her and more afraid of himself. She pretends she doesn’t worship him and he wishes he loved her back and they never tell each other. She reminds herself that things which seem too good to be true usually are. They part ways for made-up reasons, and fall into the arms of others. Still, she can’t forget him. Long afterward, she watches his happiness like a movie, wondering why she isn’t the star. She never was.
