Then i asked her what she wanted then she said she just wanted to have a word with me i told her i wasn’t interested that i had alot to do and catch my fun then i turned back to go then she held my hand knelt down and started sheding tears telling me she was sorry, she wasn’t patient enough that if she had known she would have never given henry the chance and stick with me now her education is ruined she has low grades and she was been promoted on trial, that she would have stayed with me instead using me and now she was the one that lost, i felt pity for her but i still cared less then i told her have forgiven her, then she stood up and wished me good luck in all i would lay my hands on she wanted given me a kiss but i declined and left her at that position and went straight to where my friends were. 

She just remained where she was staring at me but me i don’t give a Shtt about any body cus i felt i worth no lady tears so them too they don’t even worth my feelings life goes on.
