Summary: The waves creak back and forth on the shore, the breeze within my hair, everything seemed so long ago, and blurry, but my reflection was clear, and that's all I can see from where I stand.
I sit here on the beach, watching the waves creak back and forth on the shore, the breeze within my hair, everything seemed so long ago, and blurry, but my reflection was clear, and that's all I can see from where I stand.
It was last week, I was still with him, everything was perfect, until he cheated on me with her. I'm still getting trying to move on, but it's so hard, but I know it'll be okay.
"Hey." I heard a voice
"Oh Hey Ryan." I said softly
"I heard about Troy cheating on you with my sister, i'm so sorry." He said sitting next to me on the soft sand.
"It's ok, I'm trying to forget about it. But-" I stopped suddenly tears filling up my eyes.
"But, You keep seeing them everywhere." Ryan finished for me. I smiled, then nodded sadly, I turned my head to look at the crashing waves.
"Ryan, How hard is it to live in Sharpay's shadow?" I suddenly asked.
"It's hard, cause people think I'm almost as bad as her, but I wished someone understood." He said softly.
"I understand." I smiled at him.
"Of course, when I was with Troy I felt trapped, and that I had to live in his shadow too." I smiled sadly.
"What I relief." He smiled. I giggled.
We sat in silence for a few minutes, until he broke it.
"Gabriella, look I need to confess something, ever since you moved here a year ago, I felt something. Something I never thought I would find, until I saw you." He said blushing
"Ryan...shh." I said then pressed my lips aganist his soft lips.
It was until we couldn't breathe when we broke apart, our hands were intertwined, I smiled so softly, I was now happy, Troy is happy with Sharpay, everything seemed perfect, and still.
"Gabby, I really love you."
"I love you too, Ryan."
I sat there on that summer night, wondering what went wrong, when I realized that there was someone else right in front of me, Troy is now a distant memory, I don't need him. I never needed him, and that's all what counts.
The waves go crashing back and forth on the shore, the breeze in our hair, everything isn't long ago anymore, everything isn't blurry anymore,everything is clear, but my reflection is still clear, from where I stand.
From where I stand.
