Again tonight (and a far better quote from what I’m reading) is Rachel from ‘Something Borrowed’ by Emily Giffin:
“Yes,” I finally say, somewhat apologetically. “I miss her. I can’t help it.”
He nods as though he understands. I wonder why I miss her and Dex does not. Perhaps it is because I’ve known her so much longer. Or maybe it’s the very nature of a friendship versus an intimate relationship. When you are in a relationship, you are aware that it might end. You might grow apart, find someone else, simply fall out of love. But a friendship isn’t a zero-sum game, and as such, you assume that it will last forever, especially an old friendship. You take its permanence for granted, which might be the very thing so dear about it. Even as Dex rolled those double sixes, I never imagined the end of Darcy and me.
