It has been two years since Arianna ended her relationship with Cliffton.
Cliffton went away after that,
He moved to another town.
And Arianna knew that.
One night, Arianna went to a party with her friends.
She looked gorgeous,
Long black hair, baby blue dress, black high heels,
She was ready to hit the night.
She met her old friends there.
They said "Hi" and offered her a drink.
She looked happy.
Until someone caught her attention.
He was wearing a black t-shirt,
Black ripped skinny jeans, black Flamenco hat, and brown boots.
The one he loved,
It was Cliffton.
But Arianna walked towards him.
It was only ten steps then she stopped.
Cliffton was holding someone's hand.
Cliffton looked at her.
He didn't move his lips.
Then he talked to his friends, smiled, and laughed.
Still, with his girl stood beside him.
Arianna didn't give a fuck.
She walked back to her friends.
She started to dance,
And drank more.
It was 02:17,
And she decided to go home early.
She said goodbye to her friends,
And walked out the room.
It was only ten steps to her car,
But someone stood in front of her car.
He stood there and smoked.
"Still using the same car, eh?", asked Cliffton. "Come here".
Arianna came closer.
"What are you doing?", she asked.
Then, Cliffton put out his cigarette.
"I saw you in there. Still the same woman after what we've been through. I went away for you. I moved out from here because of you. I fucked everything just to forget you. And now you're here, standing in front me as my ex-girlfriend. I wish I am dreaming right now. Dazzling Arianna, you grab my attention tonight."
"I want to go home, Cliff. Until we meet again", said Arianna.
But before she walked,
Cliffton held her hand,
And looked into her eyes so deep.
"Just because I laugh, it doesn’t mean my life is easy. Just because I have a smile on my face, it doesn’t mean that something is not bothering me. I just choose to move on, and not dwell on my feeling for you. People change. Feeling changes. It doesn’t mean that the love once shared wasn’t true or real. It simply means that sometimes when people grow, they grow apart. Just because you’re mad at me, it doesn’t mean I stop loving you."
"Cliffton", said Arianna.
"You're the one who went away. You're the one who moved out away from here. Moving on doesn’t mean you forget about things. It means you have to accept what happened, free yourself out of the past, learn from the mistakes you have done, and continue living. Just because something ends, it doesn't mean it never existed. Just because a relationship ends doesn’t mean two people stopped loving each other. We just stopped hurting each other."
Cliffton didn't say a word.
Arianna rushed to her car,
Turned on the engine,
And left Cliffton alone.
