To: Lavender Brown
From: AJ Singh
I hope you don’t think I haven’t been thinking about you. I’ve been thinking about you a lot, and just trying to give you the space you wanted. But I didn’t mean for us to break up. That’s not what I wanted and I hope that’s not what you really want either.
I’m sorry I was insensitive about the ball. I guess I just look at the situation right in front of me and I don’t always think about what else might be wrapped up in it, for you. I was just trying to make the best of a bad situation and I see now that I should’ve at least talked to you about it first.
I don’t know what else to say except I’m sorry. I miss you and I don’t want to lose you. I never meant to hurt you. Give me a chance to try harder?
