As per usual, our conversation lasted two words:
"Hey"
"Hi"
And that was it for the rest of the day.
I can't explain it. It's not like we were friends or acquaintances, or even enemies although some might've described our relationship as such. We certainly had a bit of an obsession with one another, but whether it was in a negative or positive way (one can {and will} argue that obsession is never a positive thing) I can't be sure.
But everyday was the same; walk in, greet each other, and stare from the corners of our eyes.
It wasn't love, it wasn't hate. It wasn't jealousy or competition.
Just that. A two-word conversation. And it meant more to me, than any other discussion in the world.

A beautiful piece of work! I really enjoyed reading it and will probably read it many times over. An instant favourite.

I must say: having had those "relationships" in life, this piece nailed it.
