You have shut me out. You no longer even speak to me. Why? What have I done? Is this because of what happened? Because I told you no? You know why I told you no. If you didn’t suspect the truth of things before, you have surely figured it by now that I didn’t want to say no. I wanted more than anything, more than you can possibly fathom, to say yes and go with you wherever it took us. But I had no choice in the matter, not really. I never thought what happened would mean the end of our friendship — a friendship that means the world to me — but what am I supposed to think? You aren’t even speaking to me now. I just don’t understand it. The thought that I have lost my best friend cuts deep into my heart and soul. I’m so confused. I don’t know why you are acting this way. I wish you would just talk to me about this—whatever “this” is. If I’ve done something wrong, please tell me. I can’t try to make it right if I don’t know what’s going on. Why are you shutting me out? I miss you so much. I’m just really confused. Please don’t let this be the end of our friendship. Please just talk to me. I’m here, patiently waiting whenever you are ready to let me back in again.
