I sat at lunch with all my friends listening to them go on and on about their picture perfect fairytale relationships and their smooth sailings. When Flora realized I hadn’t said a single word she asked what was wrong? Everyone else leaned in to listen and I said I broke up with Riven last night. They all looked shocked, yet at the same time no one seemed caught off guard. I nodded and excused myself and all of them had their heads down. I walked outside and saw a bike standing there reminded me of the first time I got to learn how to ride one with Riven. We sure fought a lot, so maybe breaking up with him was for the best. I feel a hand on my shoulder and turn me around quickly into a kiss, but I break away quickly. I see those eyes staring at me I didn’t want to face him while my heart is still healing. He pleads for me to take him back but I just sigh and shake my head and try to walk away; but, he is strong enough for him to bring me back to him. I face and say But I'm not your Cinderella
I feel a tear slide down my face. I know I choose this path to break up with you and be independent but Riven you need to realize that Oh, I'm no Sleeping Beauty. One kiss alone won't do it to me. Hate to be the one to tell ya. Oh, but I'm not your Cinderella
and I finish my speech with a sigh and shoulder shrug. He begs again and I tell him Stella and Layla are thee princesses, Bloom and Flora got fairytale endings, Tecna got the most peaceful relationship, and me I got the toxic one that we always fight because I’m no fairytale princess and no prince charming can come and sweep me off my feet. I turn around and realize I need to leave before I see the hurt on his face and give into him and date him again. I think to myself this is for the best we have had ups and down, yet they were mostly downs because I’m not your Cinderella
not am I anybody’s Cinderella or fairytale princess.
