3. I know how you feel

Sure, his charming look captured my eye, but there was something special about him. "You can tell me, I don't bite", I giggle a little, but how was I supposed to tell him what happened? I couldn't possibly tell him my problems because I barely knew him and i don't want him in my troubles."Hmm...I have been going trough a lot lately". After a while, we talked and we got to know each other a little better. The conversation was getting a little more detailed after each question, and I was worried it got to the part were I had to tell him the story of the real me, the real Adilene no one cared about. In the conversation, I could tell he was quieter with a depressed look. I knew that look more than anyone because I experience a lot of pain myself. I broke the awkward silence for a moment and asked,"Why are you upset?" with a concerned tone in my voice."Umm...Can I trust you?", the stranger said."Sure",I replied. Who was I going to tell? No one would care anyways. "Well, I recently broke up with this girl" he added.    "Oh, you dated someone?"                                                                                           "Yeah, she was beautiful, and I really loved her. Things weren't working out well, so we had to break up."                                                                                                      "I'm sorry. I would be upset too if I was in your place. I had gone a lot trough this year, I know how you feel",my voice faded as I said that. I know I was going to tell him the truth sooner or later, so I didn't say a word after that. It was getting late, and the rain had stopped. I looked at the stranger and saw his head was down, along with his expression."So... can you tell me what's your name?". Ah! I was so into the conversation I forgot to tell him my name."Oh, sorry, my name's Adilene". "Adilene hu? What a lovely name. Oh by the way my name's Zayn". We began the conversation again, and this time it was more personal. "Uh, can I ask you why you were crying?".                            "I mean, you don't have to tell me if you don't wanna. I just want to see if there is any way I can help you".                                                                                                   I couldn't leave him wondering why I was crying when we first met, I had to tell him the truth.                                                                                                                   After I told him my story, it felt good to tell someone how I felt. It felt good to know someone cared when they saw you upset, or the feeling you get when someone is concerned about you. I felt bad telling him my problems, and we just met! I saw him tear up when I told him the abuse I got from my boyfriend, and the fact no one cared about me, but it was true, all of it. I didn't dare tell him a lie, because for once, someone showed respect, compassion, and loyalty to me. I heard him sob for a little when he was looking down.                                                                                           "I'm sorry. I thought that I had a tough life, but someone out there has a tougher life than us. I can imagine how you feel now." he said quietly sobbing, but his tone was different, he sounded caring and concerned at the same time.                                        "Uhh..Adilene, can I please see your cut?", this time his tone changed into calm and worrisome. I nodded, trying to pull my white sweater up on my left arm. It hurt, it did, but I couldn't let him know. I saw the big cut starting from my left side of the wrist, making a declined line all the way to my right side of my wrist. I saw his expression and he looked worried. He took my left hand and a tear came to his face all over again."Why are you crying?", I questioned."You can't keep doing this Adeline. I can't bare see anyone I love get hurt". I t startled me he said that. We barely met, and we already had a Best-Friend relationship. At that moment, I couldn't do anything else but look into his eyes and think about  what he said.
