Now, I know I've made mistakes in my life,
soso many m i s t a k e s.
But I know I need to pay for them.
Redemption: atonement for guilt.
I feel guilty, all right.
So Goddamn g u i l t y;
~ I can barely stand to see myself in a mirror these days. ~
I'm sorry. There, I said it:
I'm sorry I never told Cedric I loved him.
||I'm sorry I built up a wall that he never got to break down.||
I'm sorry I wasn't faithful to his memory, and more sorry than I can say that I never told him I liked Harry too.
Ced, I'm so sorry you had to die.
I guess I owe you an apology too, Harry.
I'm sorry I acted like such a nutcase when we went out that one time.
I'm sorry I tried to get with you when I only l i k e d you, but still loved Cedric.
I'm sorry I was a jealousbitch, and tried to make you jealous too.
I'm sorry I tried to make you as bad as me.
But I think I need to say sorry to myself, too.
Sorry I contemplated going out with Roger Davies.
Sorry I was never c l o s e r to my friends.
:: Sorry I never got a chance to be me. ::
I won't to do it again.
