Untitled story

"I am yours, okay? How many times do I have to say it?"
"You keep on saying that you can't even prove it!"

Anna finally said it —said it on top of her voice. She just had enough. She just can't stand any more lies. Her excruciating voice echoed along the hallway which where they were arguing.
That hallway. That spot by the Fire Exit door at the end of the hallway was owned by them for nearly four years. It was where they shared their sweet little moments, not awful big fights.
Jeremiah's thoughts that were running in his head paused for a few seconds; he can't believe she yelled at him.
It was a dumb silence after the yelling incident. With a puzzled face, Jeremiah looked straight into Anna's eyes. It started to become all teary. The next thing he knew, she walked away abruptly and he heard her sob. What was he supposed to do? Of course he had to go after her. He grabbed her right arm and made her face him. She was looking down to the floor and didn't have the guts to look at him because of what she did; she can hardly look at him. He hugged her lovingly and passionately —he had to placate the girl he said he love. Anna kept on sobbing on his chest; he didn't mind all the tears that was absorbed by his new violet shirt.
After minutes of hugging and crying, Anna's leg felt numb, so she gestured Jeremiah to sit on the side of the floor. So then they sat.
A lot of things were playing in both of their mind that they wanted to say to each other. Jeremiah went on first.
He said he was deeply sorry for what they've been arguing about, and he'll really do much effort for the relationship they have. Then said many other stuff he was sorry about.
Anna was just staring at the wall apposite to the one they're leaning on. She was thinking —I mean doing a lot of thinking for what she was about to say. Finally, she spoke.
By the end of her so-called speech, she then held Jeremiah's hand, clung onto it for few seconds, cried a little again, and the left him there alone at the end of the hallway.

It was, indeed, an awful nightmare for Jeremiah! Thank God he was awaken by the last scene of his dream before anything worse happened. He then immediately called his girlfriend, Anna, and the moment she picked up the phone, he said,
"I love you and I will never stop loving you."
