He wanted you to know how badly he wanted you to be in his arms every single time you meet him for coffee.
He wanted you to know how you’re the only person that’s keeping him in Rosewood.
Most importantly, he wanted you to know that he loves you.
It all started when you sympathized with him after Alison’s funeral was held. Sure, he initially thought it was a kind gesture from one of Alison’s close friends but as time gradually passed, he knew more about you and his feelings towards you started to grow deeper.
You were nothing like Alison. Heck, he could never understand why you hung out with her. You were genuine and sincere towards others while she was just, well, fake.
You would drop by his house every single day to make sure he was coping well with Alison’s death.
You would have long phone conversations with him to talk about how your day went and laugh at your futile attempts to excuse yourself from gym lessons.
He would always offer to buy you coffee as an excuse to see you.
He would always tell you about Coach Fulton’s embarrassing moments during his time in High School to overcome your fear for gym lessons.
Then there was a problem. He wasn’t quite sure whether you felt the same way about him.
Whenever he chanced upon you chilling with your friends at the Grille, you wouldn’t even bother to look at him. Then your friends would laugh and look towards his direction. When he asked you about it at a later time, you would brush it off.
That was when he started to think that maybe the feelings weren’t mutual at all. What if all of this was just a big joke to entertain yourself? That was what Alison would always do.
As much as he wanted to tell you how much you meant to him, he couldn’t. He would rather this situation continue than find out that you and your friends were messing with him.
But he had no idea that dropping by his house every single day to make sure he was coping well with Alison’s death was an excuse for you to see him.
He also had no idea that your friends were laughing at him because they would always tease you about having beautiful babies with him. You couldn’t look at him because he would have seen your red, flushed face.
And he definitely had no idea that you feel the same way towards him, if not stronger.
All along, you were just waiting for him to confess because you weren’t quite sure of his feelings towards you too.
