Alex hugged her. "Hey...everything will be alright." He replied as Torie clinged to him.
"I should have listened to you long ago, Alex. Our class can only hope for love but its never guaranteed. At least my children will have the pick of who they want. Maybe they will have a better chance for marrying for love than you or I. Kevin's a great guy, don't get wrong but...when you're forced into something...its not nearly as easy."
"Then don't be forced. Marry who want. Who gives a da.mn about what your mom and dad want." Alex replied. "Look, why don't we talk more tomorrow. You have a guy to go woo."
She couldn't help but laugh. "Ok...I will come by the house after I go see Stanley." She replied, stepping out of the hug.
Alex nodded. "Fine by me." He replied, walking with her over to Kevin and Heather.
Being single doesn't make you weak, it means that you are strong enough to be on your own; Being alone could be a good thing, because there is no drama involved in your life, no pain, and free to do what ever you want. Life is too short to be chasing those who aren't even worth fighting for, you are worth more than that.
