6. Only time will tell

Ellie's POV

I couldn't get to sleep last night, because of the email. You see, I know this trick to tell if people are lying or not. It's different with everyone, but the slightest movement or hesitation could mean game over for someone. At break-time  I made my way to the library, my heart beating with every step. Once I got there, I barely had time to sit down, when Mark rushed in. Our eyes met for a second, before I silently gestured  to go into the soundproof computer room. He obliged & we both walked in. Luckily, there was no-one there, as I'd convinced the librarian to close it for break. I made sure that the door was completely closed before saying, "Well? What's your answer?" It was only when he started to talk, that I realised I didn't need to worry about him lying.

Mark's POV

"Well? What's your answer?" Ellie asked.

"I'm so interested in you Ellie because every time i see you, whether i'm having a good day or a bad day, my whole world lights up completely, and whenever you smile my heart skips a beat and i wish that you would become mine for once and for all. I'm so interested in you Ellie because when you laugh, my insides melt and my brain turns to mush because i can't belive exactly how pretty you are! And that is the reason i'm so interested in you and want to be seen at the dance with you."

I feel like i've just had the weight of the world lifted off my shoulders after telling El that, because i've been waiting for so long just to say the words that i have just said. Before now, there never seemed to be a suitable time to tell her. but now, finally, i have.

"Yes. Yes, I will go to the dance with you" I couldn't believe it, the girl of my dreams had just uttered the words i have been waiting so long to hear. I could tell that surprise was written all over my face, as Ellie laughed. I can't wait until the dance!
