Dan woke with a startle as his teacher stood over him and shouted
so loud they heard him down the corridoor "sleeping again dan"
sighed his english teacher miss Relton shakeing her head. Dan
lifted his head slowly his dark browm eyes met her cristle blue
eyes "umm i wasnt sleeping " he said rubbing his eyes and
scraching the back of his brown curly hair. Miss Relton rolled
her eyes and carryed on with the class "Does anyone know what day
it is tmorrow?" she asked looking round the class. little Jack
breaton stuck his hand up in the air "Valentinse day?" he said
miss Relton noded her head and smiled "i thought it would be a
good idear to do some love poems for your loved ones" the class
sighed "i know its not the most exiting thing to do but it will
cover poetry" she said.
an hour passed and all the students worked hard well all exept Dan who sat there with his head in his hands "Dan are you joining in with the class" Relton asked sitting on dans desk. Dan didnt reply he just shook his head back and forth and then lay his head back on his old oak desk. "whats wrong Dan you must have feeling for someone" said his teacher kneeling down so she was at dans leve. "well achely i dont i cant understand why but i just dont mabey i just dont have a heart or something" he said. His teacher laughed "eveyone has a heat dan you just obvesly havent found the right person to give it to." she said getting back up to carry on her lesson.
That night the words of his teacher played on his mined " eveyone has a heart but you just havent found the right person to give it to yet" but Dan kept asking him sefl "how will i know when i find the one." He sat at his desk just thinking of all the possible signs but couldnt think of anything. Just then his phone began to ring iw his freind Jack "yo bud geuss what" Jack said sounding very exited., Dan sighed "what?" there was a pause for a moment before his freind replyed. "well you know the really fit girl in our class the one with blond hair and red lips. always sits at the back." "oh yeah sarah?" said Dan starting to fell worse in him self . "yeah her well she just asked me out get in" cheered jack then hung up the phone . All the colour drained from Dans face and he just sat there stairing at his pail blue wall
The next day dan went back school and sat in his form room he was trying to look happy but didnt know if it was working or not because his from teacher Mr weston kept giveing him a consernd look. He was a small man with white hair ether side of his head but his scelp was buld. he wore a olave green jacket with a red top and blue jeand and big think black glasses. Mr weston cleard his throte "attention please today we have a new student starting with us today. Her name is Lura Thompson and i expect that you will all make her feel welcome". Dan sighed but his eyes grew wider as the door flung open and in walked a tall skinny girl with dark brown hair that came down just below her brest eyes as blue as the sea her lips were bright pink .
Dan's heart started to race he felt tingly. He didnt know what it ment he just knew he liked it.
Lura walked over and sat by Dan "hi" she said in a shy voice.
Dan looked at her his eyes still wide "h h hi" he stutterd.
Lura giggled then looked away.
Just then dans teacher rubbed his chin "i need someone to show Lura around hmm dan could you do it for me?" asked his teacher pointing to him.
Dan didnt reply he nodded his head and smiled
That afternoon Dan was showing Lura around "so whats your name" lura asked still feeling a bit shy.
"Im Dan" he said trying not to look at her. "It looks quite nice round this school then ive alredy been to about 5 of them". Dan looked at her quite shocked "really how come" he asked rubbing his neck and still trying to avoid eye contact with her. "oh no reson forget i said that" she replyed very quickly. Dan wast going to argue he just didnt say anougher word "so anyone you know come here?" he said. Lura didnt reply she just shook her head "i got bullied alot i didnt have any freinds at all" she sighed.
Dan looked at her "really well thats suprising" said dan
Lura smiled "you think so what makes it so suprising" she asked
Dan turned a bright red "oh i um because you just look like a popular kid you know how you dress n stuff. and what about your perents thy cool?".

Dan smiled and then shook his head "we better get to lesson now we should of been there like 10 minuts ago"
when it was time to go home both lura and Dan walked out together
"so same thing tmorrow?" lura asked.
Dan looked at her with suprised and nodded his head.
Just then miss relton walked upto him "i saw that" she said and then started to laugh.

His teacher smiled "you like her dont you" she said.
Dan bit his finger "um yes i mean no" he said chokeing on his words.
she looked at him "ok but alls im saying is why dont you invite her round you house for tea or something like that?". He sruged his sholders. His teacher winked at him and walked off.
