She never showed her weak side-she was too afraid of losing him. He loved her because he had fun hanging out with her. The jokes never ceased, every issue that came up in the conversation was passed off in light-hearted humor and though what began as one casual date became more-atleast for her.
But when daylight disappeared and she started falling for him, she could not show it- he was not up for it and she had to keep these emotions hidden under a blanket of more jokes and laughter. She had to be the ‘fun’ person to go to, always lit up even when all she wanted was darkness to hide the tears.
