maps of her design... unspoken language.
Since Elise's return, they hadn't spent much time together. Although both were the busy sort, they made time for their chats and excursions. Elise drove to Hani's apartment in K-Town after work one afternoon. "So how's Julian," asked Hani, knowing all of Elise's feelings. "He's well, busy at the university. He started teaching more classes. We had dinner a few weeks ago."
Elise answered, dodging Hani's true motive behind the inquiry. Hani had observed Julian and Elise's friendship from the start. Quite frankly, she believed they were meant for one another. "It's too late, Hani. I shouldn't fret over him anymore." Being best friends, there was an unspoken language. Each knew what the other was thinking, what the other was feeling. Hani had received letters from Elise during her year in Paris. She was so excited to hear of internship, of her bew friendships with Clemency and Stephan. She also knew that Xavier's care for Elise sparked a revelation in her life.
Deep down inside Elise knew she'd regret waiting for so long when nothing would happen. He loved her...but not in the way she loved him.
