He smiled at me from across the class. I smiled back then looked away. How did I get rid of him? I promised myself I wouldn’t allow anyone to get close to me. I acted distant to everyone and made people think I was weird. I was fine people not liking me. I worried about Chad. I wondered if he was playing a game on me even though he said he wasn’t. The bell then rang.
He came up to me. We were heading to our registration room. One more lesson and I could go home. I made sure I said nothing. I saw from the corner of my eye that he was watching me.
“Hi.” He gave me a warm smile.
I smiled back.
At last we had reached there. I sat at the very back and him at the front. He kept looking at me, and then the bell rang. I rushed out as usual, but he caught up. I saw he followed me, so I went into the girls toilets. I made sure I took reallllllly long, but when I got out, he was there. He smiled at me again. He followed me out of school.
“Can I show you something?” he took my hand. We went up this alley way. He then stopped. I was in front of him. He looked nervous.
“You know I like you?” He asked.
“Yes,” I replied.
“Do you like me?” He asked.
I nodded no.
He stared at me.
“Tell me. Say the words.”
It was like I tried to, as hard as possible, but the words never came out. He then smiled at me. I resisted smiling but I smiled back at him. He them moved in closer.
“Close your eyes.” He said.
“Why?” I asked.
“Just do it.” And I did. He then kissed me. I tried to resist but I couldn’t go one pretending. I liked him.
