Daniel laid on the bed in the nurses room. There was something cold on his forehead. Daniel wanted to open his eyes, but they wouldn't open. He could hear voices, but couldn't figure out what they said. The cold thing on his head lifted up and he couldn't feel it. He didn't want it to leave. Daniel opened his eyes, only to see the cold thing was Jennifer's hand.
\"Oh, you're awake!\" Said Jennifer. \"Are you okay? You fainted in front of the whole school!\" Daniel looked around the room. He was laying on a bed with Jennifer sitting in a chair next to him. He realized he was alone in the nurses room with Jennifer, grabbing her hand. He jerked his hand away embarrassed. That surprised Jennifer. She put her hand on his forehead to check if he was hot, but when she moved her hand, the next thing she knew, Daniel woke and grabbed her hand!
Jennifer put the hand thing aside. \"You should have told me you were sick. If I knew, I wouldn't have made you run!\" Said Jennifer.
\"But I had to run!\" Replied Daniel, sitting up straight now. \"I had to win, I couldn't back out and let you go out with Kevin!\"
\"All this...For me...?\" Asked Jennifer. Daniel nodded shyly at her. Jennifer looked down at her hands. Jennifer felt very weird! He was sick, but he still raced for her! It was like a mixture of happiness and guilt. She really liked Daniel for doing all this for her, so she decided to put it to words. \"Yea..thank you...I really love you!\" Said Jennifer looking up at Daniel.
Daniel blushed heavily. He had to turn his head away to avoid looking into her eyes. Daniel knew that Jennifer was talking about love as in friendship, but why is he still blushing?
Jennifer stared at Daniel's face, who was back at looking at Jennifer. \"What's wrong?\" Asked Jennifer. \"Don't you love me too?\" She felt confused. They were really great friends now, but he didn't like her?
\"I...\" Daniel said. Jennifer looked at him smiling. Daniel looked down again, feeling his blush coming back. \"I...I love you...\" He said. Jennifer smiled widely and held his hand.
\"Hee, hee!\" Giggled Jennifer. She had a big grin on her face. They stayed there for a few minutes. Daniel was still looking down at their hands.
\"But...\" Said Daniel, he was still staring at their hands, and was blushing again. Jennifer looked up at him confused.
\"But what if...I meant it in a romantic way?\"
