Cori: So are you. You don't nearly get enough credit. Remember when we took that walk? On the year anniversary of my mom's death? I still think about it. What hanging out with you feels like after everything we've been through. Still a little awkward, because neither of us really know where to start conversation, but once we get the start we need it's endless talking and it's a nice feeling. Natural. :)
Gabe: You're one of my closest friends. It'll always be natural for us :)
Cori: I know. I'm embarrassed that I even told you. Do you know why I question this? What we could be, all that jazz? Because whenever I talk to you, and this apparently doesn't happen with anyone else i feel like i can be completely honest. I can be me. I guess I could do that with Kevin, but I still set limits to myself. Why? he always expects that I want him to reply with something and i don't. Not always. Sometimes I want someone that will just shut the fuck up and listen to me. You know? Someone I can share silence with. You didn't break me. You hurt me, but you didn't break me. I'm not a porcelain doll. I wouldn't be telling you ll of this if you broke me. My God someone please shut me up at this point i'm just rambling to talk to you because i've missed you...
Gabe: You always were ridiculously strong. It's admirable. Don't lose that.
Gabe: I've missed you too... a lot.
Cori: Yeah. You said that...You know as juvenile as it reads, I used to imagine being the one you ended up with. Like this feeling that never left. And then i remember when my mom mentioning us ending up together. Like when we first started dating, because we've been friends for so long. She seemed so happy and i started believing it...then it stuck. Wow i sound creepy, i'll just stop with that story now...what was wrong with you then? What made you not want to be around me anymore?
Gabe: I mean, written in the stars is sort of .... You weren't happy, Cors. It's kinda hard to be around a person knowing that you'd broken them.
Cori: As self-absorbed as it may sound, i had to do at least something about it. Just anything but there has to be something! That's the thing that's so frustrating. There's nothing I want you to do about it. I just want you to know. I want you to know how I felt and how I still feel. that's it. that's all i wanted. I wanted you.
Gabe: We were young, Cors. I didn't want serious. Not serious like you wanted. I don't know if I want serious now even. Just believe me say when it wasn't your fault.
