Excerpt II - a work in progress

For once Dave, be a man. Take a God damn chance. When you see her, pour your whole soul to her. Don't be afraid. Don't be a coward. Don't let yourself stop doing what you want to do. Just for once, don't think about the consequences. Be in the present, think of the now. Just say what you want to say. Let it all out.
Let her in like a wave of shock to your brain. LET HER IN.
So what you're exposed? Exposed to brutality. So what? At least it's real. At least you know what it feels like to be in love, to have loved even if it wasn't reciprocated. Be vulnerable.
Since you've transformed into this selfish monster, all you did was block out love. You ignored it. You didn't bother to give it a try. To you, it was impossible.

But now that you know what a broken heart feels like, can't you just give yourself a second chance? I mean, I think you deserve it. The amounts of pain you caused to these girls are nothing compared to what you have been feeling these past three months.
What you felt was much more powerful, more rigorous. You haven't been coherent since then. Your world suddenly stopped.

So you know what I think? I think we should tell her how we feel. We should apologize and be as earnest as we can. That's what she needs. She needs us to be real, upfront, and brutally honest.

She's right there. She saw you. Go talk to her. Now. Go, Dave. Go.
