And you were the first I trusted I learned what love is when we were just kids
I fell in love with you when I was just a child. We were both 11 and it was our first ride to Hogwarts. I was so nervous about the sorting but you helped me. You told me it would be fine and that I would be sorted into Gryffindor. You were right. It was okay. I was sorted into Gryffindor. You were sorted into Ravenclaw. But that didn’t matter, we would always be by each other’s side.
You were my best friend. It was just the two of us. Weasley and Scamander. Dom and Ly. You helped me when I was down. You helped me when I was broken. You the one that was there for me. You were there when I played my very first Quidditch match. Every time, you were there in the hospital wing when I woke up. You were there always waiting for me. You were always there sitting by my bed.
You were there when I found out that Bradley cheated on me. You were the one who found me hurting myself. You were the one who took the knives away from me. You were the one that helped me. You were the one who picked me up when I was broken and scared. You were the one who cared for me. You wouldn’t let me sleep in my dorm. Night after night, you let me sleep in your bed with you. You watched over me. You made sure that I would never cut myself again. You promised me that you would never let anyone hurt me. But you went back on that promise. You went back on all the promises you ever made to me.
You told me you loved me. You told me that you would always be there for me. I loved you and I still do. It wasn’t some silly little girl’s first crush. No it was love. True love for me, at least. I was so happy then - the happiest that I have ever been. It was the first time that I truly felt like myself since when Bradley had cheated on me. You promised me that you would never do what Bradley had done to me. And I believed you. I believed that you would never hurt me. After all we were Dom and Ly. Weasley and Scamander. We had been together since we were 11 and we would always be together. At least that’s what everyone thought - including me and you.
But you did the worst that you could ever do. You went back on your promise. I saw you. I saw you with that blonde girl. You were giggling, holding hands and twirling her around in the snow. You were so happy. I don’t think that I have ever seen you that happy before. And then you kissed her and my heart broke.
People say that your heart can’t really break. But they are liars - they have never felt true heartbreak. But I have. Your heart can break and mine broke that day in the snow. It broke into a million tiny pieces. I gave you my heart and do you know what you did with it? You shattered it. You shattered it into so many pieces that it couldn’t be fixed and I was left with a heart that could never be the same.
You apologised. You swore that it would never happen again. You begged for one more chance. But I knew better. I saw that look on your face when you were with that girl. You loved her. You didn’t love me as much as you loved her and I think that was what really broke me. The fact that you didn’t love me, no matter how much I loved you. You could never love me as much as you loved her and we both knew that. And even though it hurt me to do it, I let you go. I knew that I could never be happy with you if you didn’t completely love me. I let you go, but I never forgot you.
Because no girl can ever forget the only boy they ever loved. You were my first and last love.
A/N: So. What did you think? I’ve never written a story like this - I usually write happy romance but I’m quite proud of this. I hope you like it. Please leave me a review.
The lyrics at the top are from the song Wonderful Life by Gwen Stefani - I was listening to the song was when I was writing this story and I felt that the song really fit the story.
