We've been bestfriends for more than 10 years. I thought it was just another feeling of affection for someone. But over the years, I've realized I care too much and I always think about her everyday. I kept on denying it for so many years until I couldn't anymore. I thought I should acknowledge it first and tell her. And so I did. She feels the same way about me. But our relationship will never go beyond being bestfriends because it's a forbidden love. We fight and make up like any other friends do. It still hurts when I realize we can never be together. But I still love her so I stay.
