The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial in any love story. It changes the relationship of two people much more strongly than even the final surrender; because this kiss already has within it that surrender.
That’s what you get when you screw with your friends and leave everything behind for something glamorous. Instead of your dream, fucking the prom king, you lay drunken in a stupor. Neck deep in what you couldn’t be. I’m sick of you.
