My Perfect Valentine?

Do you believe in love at first sight? Is he the one? Why me? These are some of the questions I ask myself everyday. Valentine's Day is coming up and I don't have a Valentine. Why? I have no idea. But...I will tell you a long story short version of a year I actually had a valentine.
My name is Rachel, and this is my story.


10. Looks Can Be Deceiving

*One day to go - continuing*


I dialed Liam's number again and hoped he would pick up.
'Where are you?'
'At the front, but don't come down. I'll be there soon.'
I hung up. As if I'm not going to go down.
I turned around and waved to the guys and walked toward the front of the school. I was occasionally looked down at my phone so I didn't look like I was going to kill someone. But I was. When I got down to the front gate, I saw Liam and Danielle talking. Well, not talking. Shouting, arguing, fighti--. Oh God, that would have hurt. In my trance of anger, I didn't realise that Danielle slapped Liam in the face. Liam looked up at me and looked like he was about to laugh. I couldn't help but smirk at him. I slowly backed up behind a tree before Danielle got to see me. I held my breath and tried to listen. Liam couldn't even get a word in.
'I can't believe you would like her! She's so disgusting! You can't leave me, I'm the hottest chick in this school! I could spread so many rumours about you and her. If you truly loved her, would you want that to happen to her?'

Liam put his hand up to shut her up.
'Don't you put your hand up in my face!?'
'Danielle! Shut up!'
She looked stunned, but didn't say anything. She just folded her arms and waited.
'You can say whatever you want but you know what?'
She raised her eyebrows as an answer.
'No matter what you say or do. The only thing that matters is that I love Rachel and I hope she loves me back. I don't expect her to, I've hurt her too much because of you and I can never ever forgive you for that.'
I saw Liam look up at me and I felt my jaw drop.
I can't believe I thought such bad things about him. I felt so stupid. Like I wanted to mentally punch myself.
'Now, if that's all. I have to go and tell her I love her.'
All Danielle could do was punch Liam in the arm and storm off. Once she was out of sight, I slowly came from behind the tree.
'Is that true?'
He laughed. 'Yeah.'
I sighed.
'I just feel like an idiot. I thought you were talking to Danielle to get back together with her.'
He walked up to me and grabbed my hands.
'I love you Rachel. I will never leave you again. Will you be my girlfriend? And my Valentine?'
I looked down and blushed.
What? He just asked me out? OK. Breathe in. Breathe out. I looked up and answered.
'Yeah..I will.'
I looked up and smiled. He smiled back as he leaned forward for our lips to touch for the first time.
