“Uhm, will you be my girl?” The exact phrase that came out from his mouth, as he held on his right hand a heart-shaped balloon and a bouquet of flowers wrapped in a fancy silhouette paper, as he handed me those stuffs I felt a cold plunge in my stomach. Is this guy gone mad or something? I never expected a millennial would do such a chivalrous act. It was sweet but sadly I’m not into him. “I’m sorry Rie, but I can't.” I saw how his cheeks turned from pinkish to pale, his eyes widened in disbelief, turned back and left, along with his balloon and flowers. Months before this thing happened, me and Riegan Belford were on a skyrocketing level of friendship. Some of my friends asked me what’s with him, I just answered “we’re just friends” and giggle leaving them puzzled. Riegan is cute. If I were to rate him he’s 8/10 for a majority of girls that would define cuteness on a campus basis. Our intimacy is clearly giving him an idea that I liked him. Which is not true! Whenever we eat in the school cafeteria he would call it a date. Ridiculous! I liked him as a buddy, nothing more. And he ruined it. I went to our classroom heavy-hearted. The fact that my best friend just asked me to be his girl is undeniably appalling in so many levels. It took me an hour before it occurred to me that Im not into guys. I entered the classroom and scanned every faces in every corner, Riegan is not there. But a familiar and adorable face caught my attention radiating a smile that lightened up my heavy heart. Maria Grace Lucena. Ohh her smile like the gates of heaven is opening, the way she whips her hair back and forth like an angel gracefully dancing to the rhythm of Cherubins trumpets. Why am I feeling this way? She is my best friend. And last time I checked I am a girl. Am I? Maria Grace is extremely intelligent, prim and proper. Her parents upbringing is undoubtedly amazing. I can see on her an independent and lovely soul, I just wanted to be with her each day, but should I confess now? 14th of June, it’s not a typical day for me. I only got three hours of sleep because I've been awake last night thinking of how to tell Maria Grace that she’s more than just a friend to me. I just wondered if Riegan felt the same frustration the night before he told me he wanted me as his girl. Is this some kind of a karma, I just laughed and went to school. Lunch time and I invited Maria Grace to eat in a nearby Resto that serves delicious pasta that she really likes. She seemed to be glowing that day, full-spirited like never before. I thought that maybe she feel the same thing too? The pasta was served, it smelled delicious and the cheese oozing on top of the pasta. I sipped my soda and cleared my throat. Im shaking. “Maria Grace”, but before I say a word she interrupted and giggled like a kid excitedly. “I got a boyfriend already.” Those five words plunged into my chest like thousand daggers. I took my soda and sipped what was left. “Oh really?” I replied. I remembered how Riegan’s face turned pale, I felt like mine was turning purplish out of this total humiliation. Maria seemed to be happy, from the look on her face she have never been this happy before. I never thought that it would hurt me this bad. I went to the rooftop of our school, Rie saw me as I rushed to the stairs. I didn't know that he was after me, like a stealth he followed me. As I approached the last step, tears fell like a waterfall. Rie saw me. He hugged me and buried my face into his chest. “Why it’s so unfair?” I whispered. “Sshhh, the world will never be fair.” He answered me gently and hugged me tightly. “Yes, just as I am to you.”
