She waits and waits and waits for him - for minutes, for weeks, for years.
She's always waiting for him.
Waiting for him to like her, waiting for him to take her hand, waiting for him to understand, waiting for him to help her…waiting for her knight in shining armour to save her from this nightmare.
Just a little longer, she tells herself, just wait a little longer and he'll be here.
The truth is he'll never be here, and soon she gives up waiting.
