my best friend / boy i love writes letters to all his close friends at the end of the year. last year, he also wrote one to his ex-girlfriend. she’d broken up with him, but he wanted to thank her one last time for the experiences they had together. when he had to leave early from the party where he was going to give it to her, he gave it to me to have me deliver it. though i really thought about not doing it, i gave it to her. as stupid as it sounds, i really felt like éponine in that moment. having the power to put an end to a relationship, but caring enough about that person’s happiness not to.
