He irritated her all the time. She insulted him in front of their friends. While she took it lightly, he was deeply hurt. After understanding the real situation, she couldn't help but cry at her stupidity. It was just a misunderstanding. She was just reacting to his actions but unknowingly she went too far. She was someone who never fought with anyone. And when she fought with him, she didn't know the rules. She crossed a line which she couldn't have possibly known. He had his own emotional reasons to get so affected by it. Energetic and happy from the outside, he was a complicated and secluded person inside. Even though he could've tried to ignore it, he had a vortex which no one knew about.
She said, "I'm really sorry. I had no idea that you'll take it to heart instead of just laughing it off. I had no idea that I was the one who started it all. I know how horrible I've been but my intention wasn't to get you hurt. Nothing that happened was on purpose. I want you to know that I care for you and always will. If I'd have known that it would drift you so away, I never would have uttered a word. If I'd have known it would cause serious damage, I'd have just stayed silent. If I'd have known you'll be so hurt, I'd have never entered your life. If I'd have known you better, we'd be at a better place. All these ifs are killing me. And after going through it again and again, I dread every bit of the things I said even when they were just jokes. I hope you give me another chance to win your friendship back. Because without a friend like you life seems dull and boring. If I wouldn't have been selfish and rude, we would still be friends, like before. Friends who play pranks and just laugh more than they breathe."
