I signed off and went back to sleep. I started crying and I cried myself to sleep.

On Monday I woke up and went to school. And I had decided to let her go because they say, “If they want to leave you let them go. They are not leaving you because they are bad people but because they are not joined to you.”

We met on Tuesday at school.

“Hey Given, you know I love you right? Look, you are the good guy that’s why I’m breaking up with you. I can’t be with you while my heart is with someone else,” she said while crying.

“I can’t force you to love me and I can’t be in love with someone whom I know is in love with another guy,” I said in the lowest voice ever.

“So that’s it? Is it over between us?” I asked her.

She said yes and I asked for a goodbye kiss. She told me she was not in the mood for it and that was the end of what we were planning to start.

After few days I found out that she was lying about her ex, she was dating Thiza, my classmate, her classmate and Mxit mate, the guy she was with at the Matric dance. I asked her about it and she said no, he is just a friend. She said they had been friends since the beginning of the year.

I knew she was lying. I said, “I know the difference between friends and lovers, to me you look like lovers.”

“Stop digging things up, you will get hurt,” she said annoyed.

“I won’t stop until I find out the truth because only the truth can set me free”.

“Yes, we are dating,” she finally admitted. “I lied about my ex, I just needed an excuse to tell you and I’m really sorry,”

I laughed and I said, “If you run after beautiful boys they will drive you mad because they are many.”

She looked at me like I was insane, like she didn’t expect me to be so calm.

I continued, “And you can’t have them all at the same time. You should know what you want in life. You know I believed in you and I and I also trusted you. I never thought you could do such a thing to me. Even when I saw you with some boy I was never jealous because I trusted you.” I left her standing there with her mouth open.

After our break up I started to trust no girl and I no longer thought that true love existed. I became the sort of guy who didn’t care about any girl’s feelings. I dated more than one girl at a time and I had become a player.

All I want to do now is to hurt every girl that I fall for. I am now the master of “hit and run!”


Tell us what you think: Do you support Given’s decision to turn into a player? Why or why not?
