Paul Thomas is in love with Melody Johnson. But he's barley said ten words to her.
Benji and Billy sit on my left.
I watch the door, nervously, awaiting her arrival.
I look up at the clock and frown, the bells about to ring.
I wonder if she's here today...
Then She walks in, smiling as usual.
The only seat left is the one on my right.
She sits down and rummages through her purse.
I bite my lip.
She sighs and looks over at me.
Oh no! She caught me staring!
"Paul...right?", she asks in her beautiful voice.
I nod slowly.
"Do you have a pen or a pencil I can borrow?"
I nod and pull my favorite pen out of my bag.
"Y-you can have it if you like..."
She smiles, "Thanks..."
I smiles back nervously.
She pushes her beautiful brown hair out of her green, almond shaped eyes.
Mr. Norman annonces that we have a free-reading day.
So I pull out A Midsummer's Night Dream.
I'm obsessed with Shakespear.
She look over and gasps, "It that A Midsummer's Night Dream?"
I blush and nod.
"Oh, I so envy you! I haven't even read that book, I can't find it anywhere!"
"Really? Have you tried Hastings?"
"No, thanks for the tip though!"
"A-actually, until you can find one, you can borrow mine, I mean...I've already read it a million times."
"I love Shakespear."
"Me too.", I smile.
I hand her my book and she smiles again, making her lipgloss shine.
I grab my Harry Potter 3 book and read that instead.
I sit under the oak tree with Benji, Billy, Joel, and Dean.
Billy smiles, "So, when did your girlfriend say she would finish that book?"
I roll my eyes, "Yeah, cause it's such an insult for you to cal her my girlfriend."
He playfully punches my shoulder, "I'm just kidding dude..."
I shrug, "Ok."
I could honstly care less what they think, or say.
It's really her opinion I'm concerned about.
And there she is.
She's walking over to a boy.
He pulls her into his arms and plants a kiss on her perfect lips.
I look down.
Billy frowns, "Looks like someone beat you to her, again..."
I glare at Billy and pick up my stuff.
Screw this I'm just going home for the rest of the day to wallow in my stupid misery.
