Today's Quote

Me dejó tan alucinado, que no supe cómo reaccionar. No esperaba sentir tanto con tan poco.Observé cómo se alejaba. De entre tantas personas, ella era la única que sobresalía. Su forma de caminar, su manera de retirarse el cabello… Todo en ella era una constante provocación.«Dios, cómo la odio.»"
