Have you ever felt like you weren't loved?

Do you wish you could find that certain someone that would love you the same?

No person should have to suffer through these events in which a man had to go through.

It’s Monday afternoon, I’m just walking down the hall to my locker to grab all of my binders. College wasn’t much of a big deal to me. I was a very smart man and could do anything I put my mind to. I’m here studying to be an author. All I’ve ever wanted to do was be a writer, whether it was poetry or a novel. Nothing ever interested me more than a well written book.

I grabbed the books out of the locker and headed for the doors to the parking lot. That’s when I noticed one of my new best friends Travis, coming up to me with a wide grin spread across his face.

"Brent!" he shouted, tripping over his own feet, "Ouch wait up! I need a ride!"

"Well then hurry up, I’m leaving without you if you don’t get your butt off the ground." I said waiting by the wooden doors at the entrance of the school.

He got up from the ground and brushed himself off then walked up to me. I walked outside and pulled my car keys out of my pocket. My car was my most prized possession and I would kill myself if I crashed it. This car was a sleek black and white pin striped 2007 Chevrolet Camaro.

I got in the car, not looking to see if Travis was coming or not. The passenger door opened and he stepped in buckling up the nylon seatbelt. I started up the car and heard the smooth purr of the engine. I pulled out of the parking lot with a big smirk on my face and then I noticed the goddess. Her name is Natalie Modsen and she was sitting down on the stairs near the back of the school.

Her hair was encircling her face as the wind was pushing the light blonde curls. Her skin was the perfect shade of tan, and her eyes were a beautiful colour of green. They were like deep emeralds.

"Brent, hello? Brent watch where you’re going!" Travis shouted as I was about to run into a white sedan.

I let out a loud huff as the car screeched to a stop. I muttered some non sense under my breath and heard giggling from afar. I looked over to where Natalie was sitting and found that she was giggling while shaking her head at me. I smiled slightly and she smiled back, a very friendly smile. It was funny how just glancing at her made my face soften.

"Smooth, real smooth. I don’t see why you don’t just ask her out man, you know she’ll say yes." Travis stated, leaning over the middle console looking out the back window.

"I don’t know what you’re talking about." I said, acting dumb founded.

"Don’t play stupid, I know you like her. Heck, everyone knows you like her." he grinned wider as a thought popped into his head. "She’s going to be at that frat party Friday night."

"Forget it. I’m not going to a frat party, you know I don’t drink." I snapped, wrinkling my nose at the thought of sipping at a beer.

I had never taken a sip of any type or form of alcohol and I wasn’t planning on breaking my sober streak.

"At least think about it, you don’t have to drink or anything. It’ll just be a good way for you to hang out with Natalie." Travis said, flinging the door open. I had stopped in front of his house and was now waiting for him to get out.

I drove off leaving all thoughts of going to the party behind me.

~~*~~

It’s Friday and I’ve made my decision about the party. I have decided that I was going to go, but only to see Natalie. I had heard big group if guys running down the halls shouting "Party at Kristie’s house!!!" and now I know where the party is. Kristie’s house is located downtown, the streets there aren’t so good but I think I’ll survive.

I walked into the front foyer, fiddling around with the string on my back pack when I bumped into a small figure. It was a girl and she was stumbling back towards a flight of stairs when I reached out and caught her wrist. A small screech escaped from her lips and she grasped my hand with her other arm tightly. I pulled her over to the small oasis that was by the front door.

"I’m sorry. That was my fault. I wasn’t paying attention." I said, then my eyes locked with hers and something seemed to spark.

"Oh, it’s alright. I’m Richelle." she said, holding out her hand in a very nice gesture.

"I’m Brent. I haven’t seen you around here, are you new?" I asked, leaning a shoulder against the wall.

"Yah, I just got here from Yellowknife. There was nothing there that really interested me and I wanted to be in a new environment." she said, babbling on, for some reason it didn’t seem to bother me.

"That’s cool; this place is very different from the Northwest Territories. I think you’ll like it here." I said.

"Do you have a class?" she asked looking towards the hallway.

"No, my classes finish early." I said, almost to the point of being disappointed.

"Oh, well I guess I’ll see you around." she said, a hint of disappointment in her voice.

As she walked, her beautiful auburn hair swayed with its natural curls falling over her shoulders. She was a petit little girl, but had the personality to make up for it.

~~*~~

"Dude, I’m so stoked!" Travis shouted in my ear.

"Yah, I can tell." I mumbled, walking down the apartment hallway.

We were almost at the door when a few guys came crashing out. They stumbled down the hall and were hollering, ‘Woo!’. I rolled my eyes and walked into the apartment, the sight I saw was awful. There were a bunch of drunken college kids. Well, I guess kids would be an understatement. Hooligans would be more like it. I walked over to the kitchen area, seeing Natalie and smiled at her. She came up to me in an almost drunken, lazy way.

“Hey, you’re Brent right?” she asked, poking me in the arm.

“Yes, that would be me. You’re Natalie.” I said, her name was so beautiful.

“So, what brings mister goody good to a frat party?” she asked, leaning against the counter.

“I actually came here to see you. I was wondering if we could hang out tonight.” I explained in a cool manner.

“Oh, well why don’t we start by having a drink.” She offered me a cup full of a reeking, golden coloured beverage.

“I think I’ll stick to a non-alcoholic drink.” I stated grabbing a coke.

We started talking and as we were I couldn’t find a connection between us. There just wasn’t any sparks. All she talked about was how she was always out partying and that she doesn’t necessarily know what she wants to do when she’s older. I found myself drifting towards wanting to leave. Finally she excused herself and went to the washroom. I walked around looking for Travis and finally found him playing beer pong.

“Travis, let’s get out of here.” I murmured, dragging his drunken butt out of the apartment.

“Alright, but I wish we could stay a bit longer, I was actually winning.” He slurred, stumbling over his own feet.

We walked out onto the street and before we stepped up to the car he threw up on the lawn. Avoiding him throwing up in my car, I decided to go for a little walk down the street and back. We were walking around for about half an hour and when we got back he had emptied out his stomach. I walked up to my car and as I was I saw a form lying down on the ground. I walked over to it and noticed it was Natalie. She was passed out on the street and this was the last straw for me. I have no connection with her at all and no intention of ever talking to her again.

“Woo, that’s a pretty sight. It’s your sleeping beauty, why don’t you kiss her and see if she wakes up.” Travis giggled out as he walked up to me.

“Nah, I think I’ll leave her. I don’t think we have much in common.” I said getting in the car.

Travis plopped down in the seat next to me and I started up the car. I then heard a tap on my window and when I looked I saw Richelle. She looked amazing in the lit up street of downtown. I made my window go down and she smiled at me.

“Hey Richelle. I forgot that you were going to be here.” I said, suddenly happier than ever.

“Yah, I was looking for you but never found you. I don’t have a ride home, do you think you could give me a lift?” she asked, laughing at herself for the question.

“Yah, sure hop in.” I said making Travis get in the backseat.

As we rode home I could feel her glancing at me every now and then and one time I caught her and her face turned red.

I could feel the connection we had together and knew that this was the start of something. I drove her home knowing this wasn’t going to be the last time I’d be seeing her.

The End
