More Details
Status: Finished  |  Genre: Romance  |  House: Booksie Classic
It's about a girl and a boy who like each other and started liking each other without knowing it. They each don't want to admit to each other they like each other because they're afraid that the other won't like them back.
They're also holding their pride to high because they're afraid of what their friends would think.
P.S. Oh, yeah. this is inspired by a true heartache.

V.O. (girl)

I watch him from a distance.  I don’t think he notices and I don’t want him to but at the same time I want him to know that I care about him .

V.O. (boy)

I watch her as she laughs and talks with her friends. Enjoying herself. She doesn’t need me, so I tell myself I don’t need her. Truth is I …

V.O.(girl)

When did I start feeling this way? Where is it coming from? I deny it every day because I don’t feel its right but I just can’t help but think about it when I’m not on guard.

V.O. (boy)

The tiniest things remind me of her and her unique character. She’s just a friend, that’s it! She’s just a sister to me … that has to be the feeling.

V.O.(girl)

When we’re together I hope that he doesn’t see right through me. He’s just a friend. What’s the big deal? HE’S JUST A FRIEND.

V.O.(boy)

I feel like I’m getting to close to her. I have to back away. Stop making excuses to see her, talk to her, and be with her.

V.O (girl)

I feel like I’m getting to close to him. I have to keep my distance. I have to stop thinking about him, talking about him, being with him.

V.O. (boy)

If she sees all the thoughts of when I’ve been thinking about her she’ll definitely freak out. I can’t let her know – I can’t let anyone know.

 

V.O. (girl)

I think my friends see something. I can’t let that happen. Control yourself!

V.O. (boy)

Does she ever think about me though?

V.O. (girl)

Does he ever wonder what class I’m having?

V.O. (boy)

I memorize most of her classes but I act like I don’t know them.

V.O. (girl)

I know most of his classes he takes and when he has a spare. I even remember the order.

V.O.(boy)

I wonder at the littlest things like when she sleeps, or how she gets home after school. Why didn’t I just ask her? She’s just a friend, right?

V.O.(girl)

I always wonder what he looks like beneath his glasses? Or what his relationship with his sister is like. Why can’t I just ask him?

V.O.(boy)

I smile when she smiles and laugh when she laughs

V.O. (girl)

I laugh at the mistakes I make in front of him, he laughs with me

V.O.(boy)

I walk down the hall, and

see her. I want to say more but I don’t

V.O. (girl)

I see him when I walk down the hallway. I want to say something but I don’t because I see the way he acts towards other girls. There’s no difference in how he treats me. Something inside of me feels let down.

V.O.(boy)

I see the way she hangs with the guys. There’s no difference when she’s with me. I feel … pushed ( in realization)

V.O.(girl)

He has a sister. So probably when he’s with other girls he thinks of them as sisters too.

V.O.(boy)

She doesn’t feel like a sister.

V.O.(girl)

Does he know my hearts beats faster?

V.O. (boy)

Does she know I want to tell her more about me?

V.O.(girl)

If I acknowledge I like him, it’ll be hard for me to fall out. He’s not my ideal guy. I can’t ...

V.O. (boy)

If I give my feelings to her, will she give them back? Does she already know?!

V.O.(girl)

I can’t!

V.O.(boy)

I don’t know! (frustrated)

 

V.O.(girl)

But at the same time I want to -

V.O. (boy)

But inside me I do know -

V.O.(girl)

Well, he doesn’t need me.

V.O. (boy)

She’s perfectly happy without me. She doesn’t need me. 

 

V.O.(girl)

These past few days he hasn’t talked to me as much. He doesn’t visit my classes as much

V.O.(boy)

I slowly disciplined myself so I won’t give up into my excuses to see her, talk to her, or be with her.

 

CLASS HASN’T STARTED YET. BOY WALKS BY A CLASSROOM WITH GIRL IN IT. BOY SEES HER. GIRL DOESN’T SEE HIM. BOY PAUSES INFRONT OF CLASSROOM AND STARES. TAKES A DEEP BREATH AND WALKS AWAY.

V.O. (boy)

It’s hard

V.O. (girl)

I feel like he’s avoiding me. Did I do something wrong?

V.O.(boy)

Does she know I want to be with her, see her, and talk to her? Does she expect me to appear at the door when she’s waiting for class to start?

V.O.(girl)

I feel like he’s avoiding me on purpose. He can’t just do that! But at the same time I feel like I should stay away from him to respect him.

V.O.(boy)

She’s getting distant from me. Isn’t this what I wanted? Then why do I feel like my heart is in such a struggle?

V.O. (girl)

I can’t just let this happen. I rather he tease me than ignore me.

V.O.(boy)

I will treat her better. I promise. I just want more time with her.

V.O.(girl)

I need to be with him more. This is his last year here. Even if the memories aren’t ideal they will be my souvenirs.

V.O.(boy)

I see her coming down the hallway.

V.O.(girl)

I see him coming down the hallway

V.O.(boy)

I wanted to say something

V.O. (girl)

I need to do something. It’s not over.

V.O.(boy)

I can’t. I grabbed my iPod and stuffed my earphones into my ears.

V.O. (girl)

Idiot. Avoiding me? I took the binder I was holding and playfully hit him with it.

V.O.(boy)

She hit me with a binder. But like a heart monitor – the beating got faster.

V.O.(girl)

I smiled as I walked away.

V.O (boy)

I don’t feel so bad anymore.

V.O.(girl)

There’s still something between us.

V.O. (boy)

I’m glad she hit me with the binder.

V.O.(girl)

I still mad at him sometimes. He doesn’t know that he has the ability to make me cry.

V.O. (boy)

She has no idea I haven’t studied someone has much as I have to her. 

V.O. (girl and boy)

I don’t feel pushed anymore.

THE GIRL BACK AT HOME STARES A PAPER MADE STAR THAT HAS A FACE DRAWN ON IT THAT RESEMBLES THE BOY. THE BOY BACK AT HOME STARES AT A PIECE OF CANDY, THE TYPE THAT HE HAS BEEN GIVING THE GIRL. THEY BOTH SMILE.

V.O. (DIFFERENT VOICE)

When you like someone the last thing you should care about is your pride. The first thing you should think about is making the person you like happy.
