"Hon, don’t listen to her." Your boyfriend, Ed comforted you.
You tried to listen to him, but your insecurities wouldn’t let you.
You gave him a weak smile. “Can we go home now?”
He stood up, and reached out his arm for you to hold.
He gave you a slight smile.
As Ed drove you both home, he held your hand.
You looked straight ahead at the road.
The trip was silent.
At a red light, Ed turned to face you. He noticed a tear running down your cheek.
"Baby. Don’t cry. You didn’t even do anything to make her upset. That girl was obviously drunk. She just wasn’t thinking straight, okay. Please don’t let her words get you down. Please. I don’t like seeing you like this."
He held your hand tighter now.
"I know she was drunk, but her words hurt because they’re the truth! I’m fat and ugly and you really can do way better!" You somehow held back tears not wanting to make him any bit upset. Your words soon became a whisper, "Ed, you’re amazing and you really can do better than me. That lady, whoever she was, however drunk she was, had a point."
"She was stupid baby…. I love you. Just please forget about her."
You didn’t say anything else as you reached your house.
Tears started filling your eyes as you walked in.
As soon as Ed opened the door, you ran into the room you and Ed shared and locked the door.
"Babe!" Worry filled his words as he chased after you, "Babe, please let me in! I want to talk to you! Please!"
He knocked lightly and you heard him say an ‘I love you’.
"I’m sorry Ed……. I love you too…… I just want to be alone right now." Light crying was evident in your voice.
After a short moment, you heard footsteps walk down the hallway.
Ed was finally gone.
You could now let your tears fall freely.
You lay on the bed, repeating the lady’s words over and over in your head.
"You fat, ugly whore! Your boyfriend doesn’t want you! He doesn’t deserve an ugly bitch like you by his side!"
You could hear her voice clear as day.
You couldn’t help but point out all your flaws now.
Fat here, ugly there, gross here.
"Why would Ed want me? That lady was right. I know she was……. Ed does deserve someone better."
Your thoughts were soon interrupted by some returning footsteps.
You saw Ed’s shadow enter your room from under the door.
He was seated against the bedroom door.
"Ed?" You asked quietly.
There was no response.
You got up and walked towards the door.
"Ed, please I just want to be alone right now." you said quietly.
As you reached down to open the door to tell him again, you heard a light guitar strum.
You reached your hand back to your side.
Ed’s voice soon filled your ears.
"Your hand fits in mine, like it’s meant just for me, but bare this in mind, it was meant to be,……."
You wiped your tears from your eyes and listened to him as he continued, word after word.
"You’ve never loved your stomach or your thighs, the dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine….."
Every word he sang hit you in a way that made you feel like never before. You could feel the sincerity his voice had.
"……You still have to squeeze into your jeans, but you’re perfect to me,"
Tears started flowing again. Only this time because of how beautiful Ed’s words were. Nothing seemed to matter anymore. Suddenly, everything was perfect.
"…. I won’t let these little things slip out of my mouth, but if it’s true, it’s you, it’s you they add up to, I’m in love with you, And all your little things."
The song ended and a huge smile spread across your face.
You couldn’t think of anything to say just then.
After a short moment of silence, he finally spoke up.
"Baby, please come talk to me. I know you probably think I’ll leave you because of what that woman said, but that’ll never-" You opened the door and interrupted him.
He smiled slightly.
"You okay?" He asked worriedly again, noticing you tearing.
You nodded and smiled.
"Did you just now write that?"
"Yeah…… I just needed you to know that you’re perfect……. You may not see it but I do. You’re exactly who I want….. You and no one else."
You wiped your tears and smiled big.
He half-smiled, and opened his arms for you to go to him.
You immediately jumped on him, straddling him by the hips with your legs, kissing him multiple times.
"Thank you…… thank you for making me feel beautiful even when I myself don’t think so, and thank you for making me the luckiest girl in the world by being my boyfriend. I love you."
You placed your lips to his once again.
They moved sweetly in sync with his.
He broke away and smiled his incredible smile. He looked you deep in your eyes and finally said, “I love you too…… And you are indeed beautiful….. You’re perfect…. Please don’t ever forget it.”
