No One Can Love With a Broken Heart
I change my mind on what nattily looks like, she looks like this,
ignore the other one.
When Ian left I went for a walk. It was a little cold out side but
I didn’t mind. I walked to this little park by an old school.
I sat on the swings and just listened to the creaking sounds of
moving back and forth slowly. I thought about Ian, about how I have
spent two years of my life with him and it only felt like such a
sort time. He meant the world to me. I would do anything for him,
anything at all. He was one of the most important people in my
life. Ian was the one I wanted to make mine, forever. I finally
told him that I loved him and now I just needed to make the forever
part happened. “I should ask him tonight if he ever thought
of what would happen to us in the future, and if he does hopefully
it’s something good,” I say out loud. I only ever felt
this was about one other guy. But I was dumb and only 13. He was
14. We weren’t even really together but, he was exactly like
me, we even wanted to move to the same place when we were older, we
loved the same sports, music, everything. We even talked on the
phone for six hours. He talked about how he could have totally
fallen for me in just months. He talked about how he wanted me to
move in with him when we moved away. And then, two weeks later he
stop calling and texting me. He moved on. I could tell, that was
the end of us, before we even started. It killed me. I started
having stupid short relationships with guys I didn’t even
want. I broke up with them within two weeks. I never planned on
letting a guy hurt me ever again, until Ian. He changed my feeling
about guys; I knew I was going to be with him for a long time. I
just knew it! And I was right, now I just needed to make sure he
wasn’t going to hurt me.
My mind went off in different places, I starting thinking about
random things when my phone started to buzz. I had a text.
Ian: Decide on a movie yet?
Me: Yeah, what about, Inception, 4:15?
Ian: Sounds good to me, I’ll come get you at
I didn’t respond, I just looked at the time on my phone and
it was 2:50. I needed to head home.
Once I got home I saw my aunt Ashley in the kitchen, I walked in
“Hey Hun, what are you doing tonight? We could have a movie
“Oh, I was going to go out with Ian,” I felt bad I
never got to see my aunt. I wish I did though.
“Oh! Sounds fun. We can always do it another night”
“What about next Sunday night?” I asked hopefully.
“Nat! That’s your last night of vacation, do you really
want to spend that last night with me?” She asked, kind of
“Of course, I never see you!” I walked over and hugged
her. I loved my aunt, so much. She smiled at me and told me to go
get ready for my date with Ian. I smiled back and listened to her.
I scrunched my short red hair and put in a headband. I brushed my
teeth and put on some eyeliner and some green eye shadow. Then I
went into the bedroom and pulled out a bright green cold shoulder
shirt and a cute black skirt. I walked over to the full-length
mirror and looked at myself. I looked okay, I guess. Before I knew
it Ian honked out front. I waved to Ashley and walked out of the
house and into his truck. He stared at me. I didn’t know what
to do. I felt a little awkward. “What....?” I finally
“You look amazing,” he leaned in and kissed me, I
blushed and kissed him back.
“Thanks, but I just think I look okay,” I said
“You a l w a y s look more than okay, when are you going to
learn that?’ Ian asked me.
“Never,” I said under my breath so Ian didn’t
