*:official music videos/trailers

After meeting you I just don’t think there will be any other. A part of me will never be whole again. I picked up your habits, good and bad. Phrases you said became a part of me and I find myself using them in sentences. I memorized the lyrics of all your favorite songs and I catch myself singing them randomly. I smell of your scent every once in a while and I cannot help but wonder where you are, and if you are thinking of me as well. I close my eyes and all I see is you. You are in every part of me, consuming me.

i just want to be the reason you smile

When I say I’m over you, I don’t actually know if I really am. While the thought of you no longer hurts. I know how easily i would fall for you again if you ever came back.

Journeyman - Chapter 27

“I don’t want to see people!”

I wearily rubbed my temples. “Story of my life.”

It was Sunday and, more importantly, the morning after my wooing of Harry. I wanted nothing more than to be nestled up beside his warm body, a tattooed arm keeping me firmly pressed against him. Instead I was trying to convince a two year old that starting preschool tomorrow was not the end of the world. Neither of us were impressed.

I’m sorry for the delay, scuse me for being so slow.

You’re a great person and an amazing friend. You help me to be strong and sure of myself, you’re always very sweet and kind. I will always be grateful to you for being my friend and I could never change your friendship for anything, you’re someone very special for me. I love you very much sweetheart and thank you for being you @tidorito.*+♥

+*.Happy birthday sweetheart.*+♥
