What Took You So Long?

He was in love with her but he just didn’t have the courage to tell her how he felt. They’ve been friends for a while now and they usually did a lot of things together. They were even in the library right now reading in preparation for their final exams.

He hasn’t gained much from the book he was reading because his mind was on something else. She was sitting down opposite him and he stared at her whenever she was engrossed in her reading and couldn’t see him.

The main reason why he hasn’t told her how he felt was because he was afraid she might not feel the same way he felt.

He checked his wrist watch and he saw that they had to leave the library if they don’t want to be late for their last lecture of the day.

While they were on their way to the lecture hall, he suddenly stopped walking. She stopped and looked at him with raised eyebrows.
“What’s up? You forgot something at the library?”
“Nope. I have something to tell you”.
“Oh! Ok”.

He had rehearsed a few lines he was going to say several times but he was surprised by what he said when he finally spoke.

“I’m in love with you.”

His heart began pounding so loudly and he stared at her, hoping for a positive answer.

“You Moron! What took you so long? Of course I love you too.”, she replied while she punched him on his arm.
