    To you, I am just "her".

    Don't get me wrong. I'd love to be "her". But only if I was your "her". I like you so much, F. I don't know why. It's not like I fell at first sight (not that it's even a real thing anyway). I definitely saw you before you were "you". I just didn't think that a few months down...
