I never really knew her. She was simply a mirage, a faraway beauty who'd never notice me. Until she did, for just a second, the day she saw me...
"What are you doing, weirdo?" Ally laughed, sticking her tongue out at me. I grinned, running my fingers through my hair. It was perfect at the beach, the water warm and the sunset bursting with kaleidoscope colors.
"Just admiring you," I winked at her. Ally's cinnamon hair blew in the wind, her green eyes shining those words, I love you.
That's when I woke up, heartbroken. Just a mirage.
