    I'm in love with a guy who's in a relationship.

    ..but I fell for him long before that. In grade 10, I had a huge crush on him. He was cute, and smart, and good at sports. That was all that mattered to me at the time. We flirted. A lot. We almost went on a date. But my friend told him I was obsessed with him, it scared him off...

    I love him yet he's fallen ill

    and I can't visit him directly since it's contagious. I miss him. I've never confessed and I may not get the chance to now. The chances of him dying by July are 94% and its March already. My reason for living is dying, but I will survive.
