More than my best friend
I'm falling hard for my best friend.
We met working on a camp staff over the summer. We got along right away and found we shared a lot of common interests. At some point in the summer, we were both going through tough relationship issues and found it comforting to know there was someone else who could relate.
We still keep in touch and talk every day, even though I'm 6 hours away at school, and we make it a point to spend time together anytime I'm home.
He is the one person who can brighten my day when I'm feeling down. He always knows exactly what to say and how I feel, no matter how hard I try to hide it. I honestly would be so lost without him.
I was devastated when he told me he was taking a job next summer across the country, but I never let him know. We'd keep in touch, just like we do now.
As of yesterday however, he told me that he can't go. He'd be too far. Instead, he's turning down the job to come back to our camp and spend another summer with me.
He has no idea that I have feelings for him and frankly, I don't know if he feels the same about me (although I have a sneaking suspicion that he does). What do I do? Do I say something and risk our friendship? If he doesn't feel the same, it's going to make for a long and awkward summer. But if he does, it's the possibility for memories that last much longer than camp. Thoughts?
