"He's so... Quiet. I want to get to know him better... I do, I
do. I bet he could be fun and loud if he was brought out of his
shell a little more... It's too bad that I'm the exact same and
making friends is so hard for me." Fauxe said to herself as she
watched the boy from across the room.
"Hey! Foxxy!!" Shouted Karma as she ran at Fauxe full speed,
Karma and Fauxe had only been friends for 3 years and Karma had
another best friend, Natalie. So really, they weren't best
friends, but they were pretty good friends.
Fauxe still couldn't take her mind off of how sad and lonely that
boy looked... He had his two friends sitting beside him, but they
were pretty much more than just ignoring him. He was skinny,
somewhat built, but not filled out... He had chocolate brown
hair, and hazel eyes. He was much taller than she was; she was
about 5'9", so he must have been 6'2".
"Oooooooh, Fauxe! You've been looking at him for about five
minutes you know." Karma said as she followed Fauxe's
As soon as Karma said this, Fauxe flipped around and smacked the
girl behind her in the back of the head, unintentionally, of
course. "Oh crap... Damn I did not just do that..." She thought
silently. She had hit Lynne in the head; no one messes with
Lynne... No one. After all, her nice little catch phrase is 'Mess
with the best and get fucked like the rest,' and Fauxe did
not want to be screwed up before she got home.
"What did you just do?" Lynne turned around and her long
blonde hair flipped around her neck. Her ugly face didn't scare
Fauxe, she had a pig nose and chubby cheeks, she looked like she
had the ears of a monkey and her eyes were beady.
"S-sorry." Fauxe just sat there in silence, as if waiting to get
yelled at, like at home.
Thankfully, Mrs. Jay had started to talk and lecture us about
something we didn't really do, but got blamed for, so Lynne just
turned around and listened, though I am pretty sure she didn't
forget about it. As Fauxe turned back to her desk, Karma was
looking at her seriously from across the desk, she had her head
tilted to the side slightly, and had a very solid look on her
face. Fauxe just had to look away... When Karma was like this she
was scary, and usually thinking.
The boy was looking down; he was deep in thought also... She
liked guys who actually thought about things... They were less
immature. "I want to be his friend," Fauxe had not noticed that
she had said this aloud, so when Karma looked at her like she had
six heads she had no idea of what happened. "What? Did I do
something?" Fauxe had the most confused look on her face.
"Uhhh... You want to be whose friend, Foxxy?" Karma was also
somewhat confused, and the whole class was looking at them.
Fauxe's face instantly went bright red, "Did I say that out
loud?" she thought silently.
"Um... Never mind. I'm sorry, Mrs. Jay, it was nothing." Fauxe
quickly apologized, but then realized something, "Mrs. Jay? May I
go to the washroom please?"
"Of course, sweetie." Mrs. Jay looked slightly confused too, but
thought nothing of it and went back to teaching, but not after
asking the boy to go after Fauxe to see if she would be
Fauxe was walking down the hallway with her head down and her
eyes to the floor, she was fiddling with her sweater sleeve and
she looked somewhat panicked or pained.
The boy walked up beside her, and didn't say anything. He just
walked with her, he acknowledged her and she him. As they walked,
she stopped abruptly and looked up.
"Hi." She said this with incredibly pained eyes and a panicky
voice, but she said it anyway.
"Hi." He smiled and kept on walking, he liked her.
The next day, week, month and year, they went on like this. They
never said much, but they always knew how each other felt.
