There's this girl...her name was Danielle. She never had a boyfriend, hasn't even been on a date. But she's had MUs (girl likes guy, guy likes girl)...a lot of those. But then this guy comes along. His name was Marc. Let's see what happens, shall we?

I met him at the local mall after school.
Let's say his name was Marc. Again, Marc with a C...not K. Quite unique, no?
And my name's Danielle. No special story to that.
He was with his friends, and I, mine.
Well, his friend likes my friend. Let's name his friend Jarred and my friend Angelica.
So Jarred friend did everything to see Angelica. But somehow she just doesn't like him.
This last Valentine's Day, Jarred had something planned for Angelica.
He got one of his friends to pick her up and bring her to the field.
Before she steppen on the grass of the soccer field, she was approached by another friend of Jarred's.
He had an umbrella. He took her all the way to the center of the field. Though it was funny to watch because his friend was shorter than Angelica.
Once she got to the middle, in the background were a lot of people holding up peices of paper with one saying.
I didn't read what it said but, I'm sure it was something great.
After that he gave her roses, a bunch of them, and a pack of Hershey's Cookies and Cream. Her favorite.
It was realy sweet, noh?
Anyways, back to the mall. We met at the food court. His friends with mine.
I saw Marc whisper something to his other friends then to Jarred who was seated next to Angelica.
Then Jarred said, "No wonder you're herr Marc. You like her, don't you?"
I froze.
I wonder who he meant. Doubt it could be me.
I remained silent until they left.
One of my other friends, Maria, said "Marc likes Danielle, doesn't he?"
I smiled. "As if! It could've been you."
She laughed. "No! It was clearly you! Didn't you feel his stares?"
I just rolled my eyes and remained quiet.
Well, that's when we first met.
And the rest well, nothing much happend.
We'd exchange glances in school, yadda yadda yadda.
But here's the bad news.
He likes someone else as well. More than he likes me.
And the worst news of all...
I was falling for him every single day.
The second time we met was at the same mall.
This time at an arcade.
My friends and I were using the kareoke machine.
We were singing "I'm Yours by Jason Mraz" when suddenly Marc opens the door.
I wondered what bastard would interrupt our singing.
I looked over and saw him.
My heart immediately froze.
And for the first time, I felt everything turn black the moment I met his eyes. It felt great, really.
We stared at each other for about 10 seconds before he closed the door.
That had to be a sign.
Oh how I wish that was a sign.
School's over now.
And today, was his birthday.
I saw it on facebook and immediately clicked his name and greeted him.
A few hours later I checked to see if he'd answered.
I saw something even worse...
His other crush, probably the girl he's courting, greeted him.
Guess what?
Her post had 42 comments and a bunch of likes!
I sighed and rolled down to find mine and there it was.
Only, with no thank you.
A/N: Hey readers! Here's a secret. This is a true story. Mine actually. It just happened today. I'm a little angry at the guy because out of all who commented, he didn’t answer my comment...but who cares? I don't need him. Hahaha. The words of a true, bitter person. Thanks for reading! :]

Aw man, that sucks!
Exactly, you don't need him!
I do kinda know how you feel. Sort of happened to me a while ago, except not on facebook. But I'm completely over it now. We're friends, and it's fine. :)

Actually, I think the first one was written a hell of a lot better than this one. This one was... well, it doesnt fit to be under short story. More like Misc and then under true confessions.

ANyways, this is all im going to say. And as for your drama, well, i dont see why you're falling for him. You BARELY know him. Its just a minor crush and the fact that u heard that he MAYBE likes you and that triggered your brain to think "wait does he?"

Pretty soon, you're thinking about him all the time and seeing him through rose colored sunglasses but in reality, he isnt all that good. He's just playing with u sweetheart. Its called Head games. Anyone can make anyone fall in love with another given the right circumstances. I've tried, that whole experimental flirting thing. Its not worth it.

And as you've probably realized, im pretty pessimistic about love. Funny coming from a romance writer, no? lol

Again, I must agree. That guy was just leading me on. But you know, loads of people still out there. Hahaha. Yeah, but emotions come out better in our writing,no? Thanks so much! :]

I agree with BimboBunny, this doesn't fit under short stories but should be under true confessions or something.

When I first started reading, I thought it was going to be like a diary-type thing then go in to the story.

Maybe you could turn the thoughts and stuff from this and make a short story? Hm, idk, just a thought. :)

That's sucks, but what can you do? The best way I'd handle a situation like this would be to just ignore him like hell. Or give him annoyed dirty looks hahah juss joking. I wouldn't even be sprung all over him, if I bearly had met him. But everyone's diffrent :D

Wed, March 24th, 2010 3:14am


I know. Yeah, ignore him. Easier said and done, don't ya think? Hahaha. Thanks so much for reading! :]
