“I can’t believe he broke up with me…”
I told myself while I was alone in a small dark
corner of the library.
I was looking down at him through the library window.
Edward was still as handsome as ever. I remember
the feelings that I used to get when I looked at
him. The joy, love and the giddy feeling I felt
inside. However, that was before. That was when
he was my guy.
But now, that love I felt in my heart was covered
with pain. My heart aches for him. He was my first
love. I often dreamt about a future together. I
couldn’t imagine myself without him. However,
I guess I have to move on with life. We are not
a couple now. We are two different separate individuals.
How can he just fall out of love when I was doing
everything I can for our relationship? Are all boys

I blinked my eyes. I didn’t want to cry.
It would be really embarrassing if someone see me
crying over a guy. I should not cry. Well at least
not in this secluded part of the library. I would
look emotional and pathetic... But isn’t that
the truth? My boyfriend just broke up with me because
of some other girl that he is attracted to. I wanted
to stop my tears from falling. But I couldn’t
help it. I succumbed to my trembling knees and sat
down. I covered my face with both hands and cried.
“Weak, weak, weak.” I heard my interior
monologue mocking me.
Yeah. I can't help it. I'm heartbroken.
I heard a masculine voice voiced out. He sounded
as sarcastic as my interior monologue. I raised
my head to see where that familiar voice came from.
Then, I saw Richard. He’s my classmate at
some of my subjects.
“Okay. This is embarrassing.” I said
out loud while wiping my tears.
“Please don’t tell anyone that you saw
me here.” I asked him.
“Sure, tough girl.” He answered and
sat down at a chair across mine.
I saw the book that he was holding. The title was
‘Chocolate in 101 Ways’. I couldn’t
help but be shocked at seeing this tough guy reading
a chocolate recipe cookbook. As I continue to observe
him, I saw him took something out from his bag and
handed it over to me. I looked at what it was.

“Chocolate?” I clarified.
“What’s that for?”
For you to eat. Duh. My interior self told me.
I mean. Why would he give that to me?
“For you to eat.” He answered with no
Then I heard my mean self laugh sarcastically. That
was obviously a silly question. I felt my cheeks
warming up. This is really embarrassing. He gave
me a really sweet smile.
“The chocolates are sweet right?”
I nodded. I was silently trying to tell my body
to act normally. I'm blushing badly. If he asks,
I’ll blame it on my hormones!
“The sweetness of the chocolate will help
you lessen the bitterness of your recent break up.”
“How did you…”
Wow, he was right. That was a good analogy. Why
haven’t I thought of that earlier?
“How did I know that you just came from a
break up?” He continued my question.
“I overheard his break up conversation with
you. Sorry, I shouldn’t be eavesdropping but
I couldn’t help it! He sounded like a real
loser so I listened to him for a good laugh.”
My mind processed what he said.
“So you think our break up was for a good
laugh?” I said, sounding insulted.
“No! That’s not what I meant. I felt
that Edward is someone to be laughed at, not your
break up.” He clarified.
“He was really stupid for letting you go over
some girl who is not even as nearly as pretty and
intelligent as you are.” He further explained.
Wow. That was flattering. I mean the compliments
came from a guy like him. That must mean something.
I forced a smile.
“Geez… Thanks.” I said out of
I looked at the chocolate that he gave me. I took
out its wrapper and ate it. Wow. Chocolate has never
tasted this good before. I looked at him.
“This is good.” I said.
“Well, what can I say? I’m a genius
right?” He said with a contented smile on
I can’t help but smile. It was the first real
smile I had ever since Edward and I broke up.
“Right.” I said in a tone as if I was
forced to agree,
“What?” He said defensively.
“Chocolates are sweet. It has endorphins also
known as happy hormones. See? You are already feeling
better. I like to give myself a tap on the back.”
I smiled at his statements. He is smart. I already
knew that since we were classmates and he always
talks sense whenever he recites in class. Today,
I realized he is kind as well and I now see him
as an angel saving me from my dungeon of emptiness.
“Thanks for the chocolate and for making me
feel better.” I said wholeheartedly.
“You are very much welcome. I love saving
pretty damsels in distress.” He answered with
a teasing look.
I smiled back. Suddenly, my heart that was aching
with pain felt numb. Then, it felt relieved. This
might be the start of a beautiful friendship or
a blossoming love, perhaps?
