Paper Hearts

Madeline comes into school everyday to find a little paper heart lying on her desk, signed anonymously. But with two (and possibly three?) boys in her life, will she identify the sender? I'm just having a little go at romance. Not very good at it, but worth a shot!


1. Back to School

My legs carried by reluctant body into school, despite my mental objections.I entered the dull, dreary building for the first time in eight weeks, arm-in-arm with Eve, my best friend. As we walked into the madhouse known as school,we were interrupted by the strum of a guitar. I looked round, and saw a boy of about 15 sitting on the steps, playing an out of tune acoustic guitar with unusual skill for such a poor quality instrument.

"My heart," he sang softly, his blond hair swept across his face. "It burns, for you only."

"Nice singing," Eve teased, her blue eyes shining.

She was at it again. She's always flirting with other boys, and gets disappointed if they don't flirt back. Well, that rarely happens, though. Eve is fairly stunning, and with her straight ebony hair and dark flawless skin, not many boys can say no.

This boy barely reacted though, not at all fazed by Eve. "Thanks," he uttered plainly."Glad you liked it." he looked at me. "Name's Sam, Sam Clarke, by the way."

"How about another song then, Sam Clarke?" I chuckled.

He grinned stupidly at me, then began to gently pluck the strings of his guitar, letting out a sweet melody. He was interrupted by Eve moaning "Come on, Mads. Don't waste your breath on him." as she huffed through the school doors, in perfect timing with the bell clattering into action again, signifying registration. I felt bad for leaving the new boy with blond shaggy hair and a broken guitar alone, but I didn't really have a choice.

Besides, why would I want to wait for him?
