I’ve always enjoyed looking up at the stars. It just seems so, peaceful, looking out for the constellations that I know, the ones I don’t, and even the ones I made up. It’s much more interesting than anything going on inside at the party right now. I would choose sitting in the garden by myself looking up at the stars over just “hangin’ out” any day. And this particular garden was beautiful. The type of true beauty that most people don't notice these days.a

 

“I was wondering where you had got to.”

 

I look up to yet another instance of true beauty. Kelly, one of, if not, the most beautiful things on this planet. With her brown locks flowing perfectly down the side of her face, her big brown eyes staring lovingly at me, and the sweetest smile I have ever seen. 

 

“Hiding from everyone?” she asks as she takes a seat on the grass next to me. 

 

“Just needed some air,” I say while trying to put on a convincing smile, with the hope she doesn't see right through me. The truth is I only came to this party to spend some time with her, but for most of the night she had been too wrapped up with her friends.

 

She leans in and places her head softly onto my shoulder and I my senses are overcome with the sweet scent of her perfume. 

 

“I like looking up at the stars,” she tells me. “It just seems so peaceful.” 

She looks up into my eyes, and this is it. The most perfect moment in all my life, all I need to do now is just lean in and kiss her right on the lips, something I’ve been dreaming of for so long. 

 

But what if she doesn't want you to kiss her? What if she just likes you as friend? You don't want to ruin that, do you?

 

There it is, the little voice in the back of my head. It’s always there at the most inopportune moments, making me overthink everything. But not this time, this is my moment with the most beautiful girl in the world, and I’m going to kiss her and there’s nothing you can say thats going to stop me.

 

But, what if?

 

And that’s it. That’s all it takes. Now I can’t help but think of if I go for the kiss and she doesn't reciprocate the feelings. Will she still want to be friends? Would she still hang out with me? Will she ever talk to me again? That’s just something I cannot handle right now. If I can’t be with her, I can at least be around her, admire her beauty from afar. 

 

“It’s getting a bit cold, we should probably get back inside.”

 

She gets up and heads back to the house, turning around just before and giving me that beautiful smile that destroys every fibre in my body.

 

Why am I like this? Why can’t I just be normal?
