Best friends?

She got up and rushed into her room, wanting to look her best when he came. She washed her face and brushed her hair. She reached for her Kajal and carefully smudged some of it under her eyes.
She changed out of her shorts into a pair of jeans.

Why am i trying so hard?! It's only him! I've known him forever! Hell, he's seen me when I've looked like a total wreck. Why am I trying so hard now?! Oh great, there we go again. I'm over analyzing! I always do this! See, this is why I always get all wired up! I think too much! Shit, what if my hair fall is because of all this thinking?!

Her thoughts were interrupted when the door bell rung. She rushed to the door and stopped for a second and smoothed her hair out. She took a deep breath and opened the door.
There he stood, with his messy hair and crazy grin.

"Hey!"; he pulled her into a hug.

Wow, his hugs are so awesome! He smells good! I wish we could remain like this forever! There are very few people in this world who hug so well! I...

"I've missed you", he whispered.

Somehow, he sounded different when he said it. She pulled away and looked at him.
She had looked into those hazel eyes so many times before but today, it felt like the first time. She couldn't help smiling when she saw him grinning. That look on her face made her realize that he was still the same guy she loved - her best friend. And yet, there was something different about him and she was almost scared to find out.

"So? What did you have to tell me that couldn't wait till the morning? Hmm?" she asked, trying to sound as calm about it as she could. But secretly, she was dying to know.

Is it another girl? Oh God, I thought the old one was pretty nice! Well, not great, but definitely better than the last one. Maybe it's that girl from his class. Ugh, I don't like her much!

"Well, she dumped me."

"What happened? Wait, what?! SHE dumped you?! Why??"
Her thoughts started racing, trying to figure out why she dumped him.

Does she love someone else? Oh my God, does he love someone else?! God, he's not a guy like that! He's pretty decent - he is my best friend! Well, actually, I'm not complaining - she wasn't right for him anyway!

She had a million reasons figured out in her head, but what he said was not one in that million. Not even close.

"Because I told her I was going to marry you someday."

And for once, there wasn't a single thought that ran across her mind.
