She smiled at them with a wide grin, shining white teeth on display… why wouldn’t she be happy. It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Surrounded by love and couples who gaze lovingly at one another, she sees the soft moment were the emotions can’t be hidden in their eyes and it’s beautiful. But, also seeing those moments makes her remember she doesn’t have someone to have those moment with.

But, it’s not like the people around her notice, because they are all lost in their own happiness.
But, the thought struck her as she lays in her childhood bedroom looking at the ceiling… what if everyone is fake happy too?
