You stared at your computer screen and watched as messages appeared in your inbox. Your YouTube inbox was becoming quite cluttered. Cluttered with hate. People kept sending you messages and comments saying horrible things about you. You put your head in your hands and started crying. The most recent message is what did you in. It said: "You suck! You can't dance worth a shit! You should give up!"
You slammed your head on your desk and cried harder. Did everyone hate you? Were your friends really your friends? Did they really care about you or were they using you for their own needs. You even invited your best friend Arthur over today. He probably didn't care about you either. Tears ran down your face and onto your desk. You felt isolated, alone, and helpless.
You heard a knock on your door, but you didn't look up. You didn't care, and the person on the other side probably didn't either. You heard it open and someone walked in. He came up to you and put a hand on your shoulder.
"________, what's the matter?" Arthur asked.
How the hell did Arthur get past your parents?! Who cares? He's probably here to make things worse anyways.
"Seriously, what's wrong?" He asked again.
You looked up at him with a tear stained face. You couldn't say anything. You just couldn't. You glanced at your screen and saw another hateful message appear. A tear appeared in your eye and you put your head back on your desk.
"Oh, I see now." Arthur said in an understanding tone.
"I-It hurts too much." You said weakly.
Arthur hugged you. "Nothing there is true. What those people say are all lies."
"A-And how do you know?" You whimpered, looking up again.
"You want to know how I know that?" Arthur asked, closing your browser window and wiping the tears from your face. "I know that because.. I-I love you too much to think anything different." He answered, kissing you gently on the lips.
You instantly stopped crying and your eyes widened. You were processing what he just said and what he is doing. He cared? Someone actually cared about you? You started crying again, but they were tears of happiness instead of sorrow. You closed your eyes and let the tears fall as you melted into the kiss, where you felt the happiest.
Arthur pulled away after about ten seconds and saw you were crying again.
"Love, your crying again. What's wrong?" He asked, his voice filled with extreme concern.
"Don't worry, I'm not sad." You said, wiping the tears from your face. "These are tears of happiness, because I've never felt so wanted before. So loved or anything else."
Arthur sighed of relief and smiled. "That's good, cause I don't want you to feel sad and lonely anymore."
He hugged you and you rested your head on his shoulder.
"Arthur, I love you too." You said, smiling.
Never again has the messages bothered you, because Arthur was always there for you. You finally felt loved, and like you had a place in the world. Finally. <3
