We are good together

The letter request:

We were together. We are no longer together. I still want to be with him. Or, with him again. We are good together. When we met he was freshly out of a relationship and still in love with his ex. I broke it off because I was falling in love with him and worried that I was just a rebound. It’s been a month since the break-off, and we see each other a lot. We watched a few World Cup games with friends, go out in groups, but always with safe distance. We’ve talked, and he can see himself with both me and his ex. I probably shouldn’t have broken it off, but I was scared and silly.

 

The letter request:

Dear Gus,

I want to tell you a story – some of it you already know, some of it you even helped write, some of it may come as a complete surprise (as it did to me) but stay with me, because I reckon there’s a chance of a happy ending.

This is the part you already know: We were together. We are no longer together.

This is the part you may not know, or maybe you’ve guessed: I still want to be with you. Or be with you again.

This is the part I feel sure about in every fibre of my being: We are good together.

And this is the part I’m sure you don’t know, but I want you to know, even though it makes me shiver with terror: I broke it off because I was falling in love with you and I was worried that I was just a rebound.

This is the part I wish I could rewrite: I probably shouldn’t have broken it off, but I was scared and silly.

And I’m sorry to say that’s all there is so far. I don’t know about you but, to me, it feels like a story that still needs an ending. For what it’s worth, I hope it’s a happily ever after.
