"For some reason his words sunk in deeper this time. He told me I was amazing before and I liked it but this time was different. His eyes were so warm and the way he was looking at me made my heart throb in my chest. This time I knew he meant it and he was right, I didn’t believe it. That hurt. It was one thing to have someone insult you or have someone hurt you but it was an entirely different thing when the person who didn’t believe in you and didn’t think you were anything special was you."
