I was in university and met this really cute girl, Emily. I really liked her but since we met right before our graduation and she had to go back to her home country, I decided to keep my feelings inside me. But when graduation day came, Emily gave me a gift of homemade chocolate. Idiot me decided not to open the box and eventually, I completely forgot about it. And now I think not opening it was the biggest mistake of my life.
