|'the Friend Zone" - A Romance Story By Olivia by Pepuscutie270(f): 12:04pm On May 21, 2018|
I was young. Younger than I am today. Naive and full of innocence. Reticent. Determined to succeed for whatever it might cost. I was doing a good job at that but lonely. The loneliness stems from deep, inside of me. My affinity to singleness fading into thin lines. Other youngsters were always in pair. I wanted same.

'You seem to have a lot going on in your mind, his message read'.
Unsure how to reply to that, I simply typed 'lol' before proceeding to check his photos. He wasn't looking bad I muttered under breath. I was calm when he asked for my pin. BBM still in vogue.
A friendship began. One that was so genuine, sincere and everything beautiful.
There was no day we didn't talk. It started, talking at least 3times daily on the phone.
