So, she never knows that someone has another friendship. She knows that someone could be unkind but she always believes with him. She hopes that someone doesn’t say love to her if he doesn’t want her and not to say sorry because someone thinks all of his done was just fun. She hopes that he doesn’t come and keep her in a big hug, if he wants to leave her. Because, it is not easy to combine between love and forget ness.
