My girlfriend came and saw me today (I was all sicky and didn’t go to school).

We talked and cuddled and such before she had to go- rambling about our weekends without one another, how much we missed each other, poking my cats in the face and taunting them with her lunch meat (good times). <3

I’d noticed the origami birds she left on my little table, and she mentioned them in passing, but I didn’t take a good look at them until after she left.

Each one has some writing on it, but one got me in particular:

“I wish I actually deserved you.”

This just

I didn’t even know what to say.

And I was suddenly very sad that I didn’t read them sooner, while she was here. So I could tell her otherwise.

I started crying almost instantly
and I just couldn’t place why.

The only response that could really bubble to the surface was 

“Oh no,

no, sweetheart

that’s not true

please, remember you deserve me, too.”
