Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer

3rd POV

She was there again. Watching him as usual. She was always watching him. Some would tell say true love or love at first sight doesn't exist but for her it does. She fell in love the moment she saw his black floppy hair and his bright green eyes. He'd walked into her kindergarten class half way through the year and he was gorgeous. She fell in love instantaneously but so did half the girls in their class. He walked in with Simon Bae, he'd been here since the beginning of the year but they knew each other as they talked openly all the way to Simon's desk. The teacher introduced him and her heart sang his name.
Derek Souza.
She was always to nervous to talk to him and her stutter got worse. She'd always blush when her friends talked about how cool he was. As the years went by he went into an awkward teenage stage and all the girls that had liked him now liked his brother. He didn't seem to care, it looked like he liked it better. She still liked him though, she'd never stopped. She'd watch him through the corner of her eye in their classes. She'd watch from her locker which was conveniently across the hall from his. She'd follow him to the library and write a bit always keeping one eye on him. She'd turned into his personal stalker.

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

He knew who she was. Chloe Saunders. The rich girl with no mother, he remembered seeing her swollen red eyes in first grade. He remembered wanting to comfort her like everyone else even though he never knew the girl personally he still felt bad for her. He looked up from his book to see her in the leather chair across the room. She always sat there. No matter where he sat she was there. It wasn't creepy that she was always there, sure he thought it was creepy but not in a stalker way. In fact he liked that he could see her, he could watch over her. She may have been rich but she was the nicest girl in the school by far. She talked to whomever she wanted and how she wanted. She was the reason he was on the basketball team even though she thought it was a secret. He remembered her walking up to the coach and pulling him aside they said something and the coach looked angry and then scared before nodding. When he walked back over I wasn't benched anymore and she sent a quick nod at the coach sitting in the bleachers for our practice. Half way through and dark-skinned man ran in and she frowned. We were on a water break so he ran through the court and whispered something to her. It was a day I never forgot because I owed her one and I really wanted to know why she was even there and who the other guy was.

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What's standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this

One step closer

She was staring at him. Again. God was she ever helpless, couldn't keep her eyes from him for a moment. She tried to focus on work but it just wasn't going to happen.

Staring At

She read the note he'd passed her several times and she knew her cheeks must have been red. As she bowed her head in guilt.

I'm sorry.

He read it and nodded. She turned back to her work,

"Four over three." He whispered and she looked up, "that's Sin." She smiled back at him almost making his heart stop. She was so close to him. Math was his favorite subject, but now with her right beside me it was also his favorite class arrangement. He loved her. He knew he did but he was too shy to tell her.

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

"Derek?" Derek looked up looking over at his brother,


"Do you have a crush on Chloe? Everyone is telling me you were buddy buddy in Math." Derek sighed before nodding,

"Yeah we're friends."

"Not what I asked bro!" Derek ignored him and continued watching. She stood at her locker a small smile on her face. Friends. That was a lot better than stalker.

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

One step closer
One step closer

"Chloe?" Derek asked one day when he found her in the cemetery it'd been two weeks since their friendship had started and she was fairly open to him.

"Hi." She whispered.

"I didn't know you were here." He said looking over the tombstones in the graveyard, "I thought it was you when I saw you far away."

"It's me." He looked at the gravestone and frowned.

"Your mother?" He asked and she nodded tears in her eyes,

"Yeah." She whispered again and he wrapped an arm around her waist. Chloe dropped the bouquet of flowers on the grave and he took her hand.

"I want to show you something." He pulled her out past the stones and over the small windy hill. On the other side was a large tombstone.

"What is it?"

"My entire family is here." He told her, "even my parents." He pointed to their names and Chloe hugged him. She was there for him like no one else was.

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more

"Hey Chloe!" She spun around. It was college now and they were best friends. She knew everything about him and he knew everything about her. Well everything but that she loved him, "wanna get some ice cream?" He asked and she nodded eagerly. He led her to their favorite ice cream shop. He ordered her a strawberry and himself a chocolate. She couldn't smile. Not anymore it was just to tiring to smile when she was so sad.

"Thanks." She said as she took it and he studied her in concern. Had he done something? He'd wanted her to be happy like usual but she was…disappointed. In him?

"Did I do something wrong?" He asked and she shook her head,

"No I did."

"What was it?" He asked as his leg brushed along hers. Just in comfort he had to tell himself. A tear fell down her face and she wiped it away.

"It's in the past now."

"Chloe." His voice was stern now and she sighed.

"I have to move out." She whispered standing up she took her ice cream with her.

They shared an apartment together, they had their own rooms. He didn't want her to move out. She couldn't leave him. Not now, not when he was so close to telling her. She was gone when he came out of his revere. Where was home? Why did his chest hurt so much? Is this what it's like to be heart broken. Over all that time of watching her from a distance, of loving her! She was leaving now? He'd loved her for thousands of days! For years! Getting up he hurried and hailed a cab. It took off and he told the cabby his apartment block.

She was packing when he got home and he grabbed her hand,


"I have too." Tears streamed down her face and he wiped them away holding her face in his hands,

"Please stay." He whispered kissing her forehead.

"D-don't." She whispered, "I need to go." She zipped her bag up and dragged it out of her room he chased after her watching her head out,

"Chloe wait!" He called. Now or Never. If he didn't he would regret it later. What if this makes her stay? "I love you."

"What?" She asked turning around.

"I love you." He repeated, "I've loved you ever since I was young."

"I've loved you since kindergarten the moment you walked in the door." She whispered and he smiled walking over he kicked her bag to the side and gathered her in his arms.

"Everything always turns out right." He whispered before kissing her.

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more
