Kate studied art at the community college, and was working at the library part-time.
John attended college in Belvelle, Ont. As Kate read the letter it said that John was about to take his final exams, and then come back into town to go back to work. He worked in a garage fixing up cars.
A week later when he came home, he came over to see Kate. He told Kate that he should cool it, and not rush into anything. Kate's heart sank. "What was he saying?" He said that he only wanted to be friends with her, and nothing more. Kate's heart sank. She hoped that she and him would be engaged. She really loved him.
Kate became heartbroken, and then she cried, and said "I love you."
She tried to hug John, but he pushed her away, and said, "I don't if I love you. I have too much on my mind."
She thought that it was possible that he was probably seeing another girl, so she asked him,
"Are you seeing someone else?" John said,
"No I am not seeing anybody." Kate was bit
relieved, but she was still pretty hurt.
Later on that evening, when Kate went to bed, she barely slept at all. She cried for most of the night, read a novel, and tried to forget about how disappointed she felt about John. When she got up in the morning, she prayed deserately to God, and prayed that John would apologize to her, but a few days later, he said that he would call Kate sometime for a coffee just as a friend.
She realized that John meant that the relationship was over, and then a month later, she was seeing someone else, but she doesn't know how far the relationship will go. She left the answer to God.
