Today was one of those days where everything felt off. Yan had to go visit her grandparents, leaving me alone for the day. I hated every moment of it.

Waking up this morning without Yan by my side felt wrong. She's always there when I open my eyes, her calming presence soothing any anxiety or anger that may have lingered from the night before. But today, there was none of that.

I went through the motions of getting ready for school, but it all felt pointless without her teasing me about how long I take in front of the mirror or stealing a kiss before we leave. The halls seemed darker and more suffocating without her light laughter echoing through them.

In class, I couldn't focus on anything the teachers were saying. My mind kept drifting back to Yan and how much I missed having her next to me, our shoulders touching as we passed notes back and forth under our desks.

During lunch break, instead of enjoying my meal with friends like usual, all I could do was stare at an empty seat across from me where she should have been sitting. The noise around me became unbearable as everyone else chatted away happily while my heart ached with longing for just a glimpse of her smile.

After school ended and everyone dispersed to their own activities or homes, I found myself aimlessly wandering around town trying to pass time until she returned later in the evening. Every shop window display reminded me of something she would love or laugh at if she were here with me now.

As darkness started creeping in along with cold winds blowing through streets devoid of warmth without Yan's presence beside mine; loneliness settled deep within my chest like an unwelcome guest refusing to leave no matter what distractions - whether they be people bustling past on sidewalks hurriedly heading home after work hours ended early due lack sunlight during winter months making nights longer than usual ones...

The only solace came when finally saw headlights approaching driveway signaling arrival homecoming awaited eagerly since morning dawn broke upon horizon bringing promise another day spent together
