Very short drabble, loosely based on my other fic, 'Reflections', but also a stand-alone.
Disclaimer: not mine.
Please review! Thanks! ^_^
There was a look of utter shock on her face, I remember that. Tears pouring down her cheeks in a shining, crystalline line. And I remember thinking, god, she's so beautiful. Even now. I knew there was pain, but I was certain I could steal if from her heart and she would forget.
I, as worldly as I was, was so naïve. She never forgot. And she never forgave...
"Don't you understand," she once said to me, "I love you, but I hate you, too. And that love makes the hate so much worse..."
But I never hated her. Never. Many have called me a fool for that. Let them, I no longer care. It's true, but not for the reasons they think.
I loved a woman, but because she would not love me in return, I destroyed her. I thought that I would recreate her from the pieces that were left, but I never quite found them all...
Well, isn't that slightly depressing? Not too mention short. Anyway, review please and let me know what you think! And don't forget to read 'Reflections'.
