I stared at him from across the room and sighed. He smiled when he
realised I was looking at him. I gave him a shy smile and blushed.
I hid my face in my arms. "Louise what is the answer then?" it was
Mrs Hundley. I looked up even more embarrased. I shrugged my
sholders. I had no idea what she was going on about. Everyone began
to laugh. Then she looked straight at me. She quietened the class.
"If that's quite enough, unless you want to discuss it after
school?" He then smiled and raised his hand. "Mrs it's
hydrogen.""Correct." then she contined her rambling on. I liked
Ted. He was nice. He wasn't like a friend but he... I don't know
how to explain.. An aquaitence. He lived near me and our mothers
are friends. We have so much in common like we are only childs so
when he comes over it is the both of us. We don't do much talking
because we know most about eachother, and the silences is never
upward. After lessons instead of Ted going off to his many mates he
came to me."You were sleeping." he said. I was startled. If I was
sleeping then I never noticed my self. He noticed my weird look.
"Only joking but Mrs Hundley's lecture are boring."I laughed.
"Thanks yeah." "For what??" he asked. I was beginning to think that
he did not answer the question for my benifit. "Joking." he then
gave me a weird look and smiled. Then he laughed. I did to. "You
look cute when you smile." I then blushed. He laughed. "You're so
cute." we had walked to the end of the corridor. He stood infront
of me. "I like you. You're a great friend." he then squeezed my
arm. "Ted. Come." it was Janice flirting with him. He did not seem
so intrested. He stared over at her and indicated after. She
hurried on to class. He then moved towards me. I thought he was
going to kiss me. I leaned in. He whispered in my ear. "After." I
wondered what he meant. When I went into class people were staring
at me especially Janice. Ted too. I didn't look at any of them.
After at lunch break I saw Janice run over to Ted. I watched them
kiss publically. They were walking around toghether. I was
confused. Why had Ted acted all flirty and what did he mean by
after? I didn't want to go to him now. He with all of his friends.
They all hated me enough. After school he came to my house. I tried
to avoid him but he saw me. He immediently went into my room. "So
your smart." he said. "I know you are and well me and you are
friends. And friends do eachother favours. And if you needed one,
you will ask me and I will say yes. So the maths homework. Can you
do it for me?" I thought he liked me but I got it. I remembered
Nancy. He got all flirty that she would do anything. Ted was only
using me. "No." I said. He seemed suprised.I then rubbed my eyes.
He sat beside me on my bed. "You okay?" he asked. "What does it
look like? You were only pretending so you could use me. I know
your type. You take advantage of others because they like you. You
tell them what they want to hear. Just go!!" "I am sorry Louise."
"You know I actually thought you liked me. I thought when you
whispered in my ear you were going to kiss me. I feel so foolish."
"You like me?" he then actually kissed me. He held the back of my
head. When he stopped I muttered " but Janice." "Let us have this
moment." he said. Then he kissed me.
