(Day 1)
 
When you are 14 years old love becomes such an ambiguous thing, one day you think you love someone and the next day you meet another guy that seems perfect for you. Unluckily this happens to often in my life.
To be more accurate this happen 4 days ago. I was outside of school waiting for my mom to come get me and so was he, in some way I´ve always known him you see my 20 years old brother Mike is friends with his 20 year old brother Taylor (who has a monstrous behavior), it obviously led to a conversation and we started talking mostly about our brothers and their friends and whether we like them or not, he made a couple of jokes that made me burst into laughter. I was astonished by his charm, but what I was most interested in was in the fact that I knew absolutely nothing about this amazing guy.
 
Then we both took our leave, I dont know what he thought but I couldn`t get him off my mind.
 

(Day 2)

I was at my Spanish class bored as hell, I was supposed to be working on my project, but this girl Bella wouldn´t let me do any off it. Anyways the point is I went to talk to the teacher about something , when I saw him coming in our direction, so I got all nervous and ran inside the classroom, about 2 minutes later the teacher called me and told me:

-"Tabatha, Mrs. Eberhardt needs you".

I walked my way out of the classroom and met him at the door, then we both blushed and walked towards Mrs. Eberhardt´s class, we didn´t talk much, but it went like this mostly:

-"Hey" he said blushing

-"Hi" I said with a foolish smile

-"So how are? How is your brother?"

-"Fine, just fine... and what class do you take with Mrs. Eberhardt"

-"Oh you know recycling and stuff like that"

At the moment we got to the classroom we split, I talked to my teacher and he took his seat.

 

(School take-off)

My friends and I were chatting, he was sitting two benches away, then he stood up to get in his car and I don´t know what the hell happened to me I just couldn´t look away, and apparently he was having a hard time looking away from me as well.

I´m seriously crushing on this Elijah guy.

 

(Day 3 & 4)
 
It was an okay weekend, it was no big deal, not interesting, not boring.
No good.
Done.

 

(Day 5)
 
Today was meant to be a boring day, because we have this national anthem contest which sucks, we were all supposed to were our formal uniforms an of course I brought it complete. Me and my group were going to the auditorium, when this Canadian girl Alice came by and said:
-"Can you please lend me your sweater? That way you can stay and I can leave"
I thought about it for a moment, but then I looked back at the office were everybody who didn´t brought their uniforms sitted in a bench, and I saw him clearly just sitting looking at me; smiling like dumbass. I didn´t thought twice and threw my sweater at Alice, and somehow managed to make the must ridiculous walk ever, but there I was with a couple of friends and the love of my life (Perhaps not).
Small chatter yet very inspiring and gorgeous as always, but I´m probably just exaggerating, after a while Mr. Sergil discovered my sweater trap and made me returnto the contest; but it still was pretty delightful.
 
Then on the second recess he came over to talk with me; by this moment I was already blushing, he took my brother as an excuse or at least I hope he did, we chat a bit on till my friend Sarah came in...
She said:
-"So, we have to go bye"
She grabbed me by the arm and I said:
-"I´m sorry! Bye!"
It was a very brave act, or perhaps I think so, well for me it is.
 
I send him a message telling him how sorry I was.
By reading previous messages I discovered he had a crush on me! Just a year ago.
It can either be very goog or very VERY bad!
 
Now there´s this thing I forgot to add, my frien Sarah wasn´t very forgiving about me hanging out with Elijah:
-"Why the heck does that 7th grader talk to you?" she said upset
-"Err... I don´t know, well I mean... I do, I do know him because of our brothers and stuff" I said kind of shivering.
And damn right I didn´t know. What´s wrong with me?!

(Day 6)
 
I didn´t saw him on the first period, as a matter of fact neither did I saw him in the second period, but on the second break I did saw him in the cafeteria. I went to get a lemon, he started smiling and looking at me so I said:
-"Hi" with the silliest tone I could have.
-"Hello" he said still smiling.
Then I left.
On the last hour of class he came to talk to me, ( I usually use my hand as an agenda, I write everything there) so he grabbed my hand and said:
-"What does it say?"
-" You know math, e-mail, spanish and that kind of stuff"
Yet he tried to find a deeper meaning in the words; he didn´t stopped grabbing my hand, but there was something weird in the way he grabbed my hand, it almost seemed as fear.
 
It´s worth saying I loved it, I love him.

 

 

(Day 7)
 
Today he kindda said hi in a weird way, he estended his hand toward me so I grabbed it and he kept going, then he stopped, smiled at me, laugh and left.
I was coming back from my Sports class (all sweaty and gross), when he came along and told me:
-"I love the way your hair looks"
-" Thanks, I like your pin" I said poiting at his chest were the pin of our favorite football team was.
Then my friend Marietta came along, she just kept staring, like if I was talking to the devil himself, after he left I asked Marietta:
-"What´s your problem?"
-"Nothing I just don´t like that boy"
-"Why not?" I said confused
-" Well don´t you remember last year when he literally asked every girl to be their girlfriend? How he stalked us? Never stopped talking to us?"
-" Actually.... I didn´t... remember"
I don´t actually remember it was that way, but some of what Marietta said was true. Then I went and talked to Sophie about this, she knows Elijah well, so I asked her:
-"You know Elijah right? Do you think he´s a bad person?"
-"Yes, I don´t think so, but many people had told he´s a complet hipocrit"
Of course I didn´t like the sound of that, it made me extremely sad to know the reputation he had. That´s not the worst part, I did a little research about him and the way people think of him the say he´s:
-Annoyingly polite with girls
-He fancies all the girls
-Many girls fancy him
-He doesn´t have many friends
And all that kind of stuff but I guess he´s whatever I think he is not what other people say he is.
 
(Day ?)
 
Remember that at the beggining I said that love was a weird thing? Well I was right, turns out I don`t remember since when I stopped liking this boy, I just know that it happened. And now I just like him as a friend to hang-out with after school while we wait for our moms to pick us up. So I`m sorry to say this is the end of another crush of mine. Quite a crapy ending if you`d asked me, but don`t worry this ending is just the beggining of a new story.
