You Always Get What You Want
Ficlets and Ficly survivor, FicMom, and Mistress of Well-Intentioned Indecision and Goddess of Unrequited Love. @ElshaHawk @HawkandYoung
"I used to be madly in love with you, but you pushed me hard away."
"No! When did I do that? I never pushed you away."
"The day you said to me that you would never try to steal me away from my family."
"I wouldn't. Family is important."
"But that was the day you refused to fight for me, the day you showed me that you had no similar emotions back. Your intentions were not in my direction."
"What does that have to do with family?"
"You're right, it has nothing to do with them. I tried and tried again to make my feelings clear, but still you insisted that we were friends and I was so far up the friend zone I was.. well I felt like shit."
"No, it's not like that!"
"Stop denying my feelings. That's what you do. You shove my feelings under the rug and cover it with kind words of encouragement like it's a phase that I'm going to get over. Well, you were right. You were a phase I went through. You made it be a phase. That's what you wanted. You always get what you want." I started ugly sobbing.
"I pushed you away?"
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?

Hard stuff. Recognizable but tough. Ugly sobbing was the perfect description for that moment. Surprised (but perhaps only a little) that you recognize the friendzone as an actual thing. Curious, is his incredulity an act or was he that oblivious? Something else?

I kinda pictured him as oblivious, so wrapped up in his own world. Like, he doesn't know I had any stronger feelings than platonic friendship, so when he learns about it and how I felt being pushed away, he is startled that he could have been so cruel.
