I saw my bestfriend cry today. And it’s the very first time I’ve seen him like that. He never cries in public.. never! even if the situation calls for it… he’ll just play it cool.
We were in his car and we were just talking random stuff like we always do. I know that he’s trying hard to open up a conversation, but i was just not in a mood to do so.
He was trying to judge me…make assumptions about me (it was all friendly and it was meant as a joke). I dont know why it got to the point where i told him “never expect…never assume…never judge…so you wont get hurt!”
It was all silent after that. I stared at him while he looked straight on the road ahead. I knew he could feel me staring at him. Just then, i saw it…the first tear appeared and fell from his left cheeks. I was going to wipe it off but he beat me to it.
It just hurts me to see him cry. I asked him why he cried and he said it was all a joke. But i know it’s not. There’s something deep in him that have prompted him to feel that way. I know it’s something connected to what i said. I tried asking him whats wrong but he wouldnt tell me. I’ll respect his decision…maybe he’s not yet ready to open up.
Before getting off his car, i told him that that single tear from his eyes is equivalent to my bucket of tears. He apologized for that. It was silent. Again. Then he told me to “say something.” I opened the door of his car and before shutting it close i said, “It just hurts me to see you cry.”
[wow! after rereading what i wrote…i just realized how dramatic it is! sorry…. it’s so corny and there’s so much drama! but yeah it happened… no exaggerations and all. I BLAME THE WEATHER! it’s gloomy in LA…just when it’s almost summer!)
