11. Struggling Through

 

I sat under the willow tree outside on our school yard. It was our break. Being in grade 12, these things are precious. A lot of cats didn't show today. Father didn't want to send me, but I made him. Aqua didn't want to come so she didn't.

I ran through the list of cats that had arrived and hadn't arrived in my head.

Present

Oliver Cavern(No duh! He's such a teacher's pet. Not in a bad way, though.)

Shontel Founder(Okay... That's kind of surprising.)

Fiona Delaxiatte(Fiona and I don't get along very well. She's a tortoiseshell with fiery amber eyes. She and Oliver were an item briefly in middle school.)

Me(I think you know that.)

Kyle Trondon(No comments. Kyle has a dark brown pelt with even darker brown spots.)

Charles Sky(Yesssssssss!!!!!!!)

Conner Sky(No comments.)

 

Absent

Aqua Harrison(Already said that.)

Olivia Cavern(Why am I surprised?)

Lily Machining(I'm just glad to have her out of my fur.)

Snowy Carter(Unexpected.)

Zuzana O' Hana(No comments. Zuzana's pelt is a furious red with pale golden stripes and she has beautiful green eyes.)

Ottawa Cappuccino(He's never cared about school. Ottawa's pelt is an unmarked plain brown, like his eyes. Oh, and everyone says he has a crush on me. See if I care.)

Nolan Pegasus(Nolan has a pale white coat with impressive and intense green eyes. H-

 

I jumped as Oliver ducked under the willows swaying leaves, jerking me out of my thoughts. "Oh, hey." I settled back down among the fallen debris. "Hi." Oliver said. "I thought I might find you here."

I looked up at him.

"What are you, psychic?"

"I don't need to be. I just know you really well."

"Really well."

"But times are changing. What about us?"

"Oliver, no matter what happens, you'll always be my best friend. You know that, right?"

Ollie sighed. "Yeah, I guess so."

"Ollie..."

I grabbed his hand and squeezed it. Oliver squeezed back. Then he turned around and held out his arms. I flung myself into them. Oliver wrapped his arms around me and held me tight. I felt warm and secure. His chin rested gently on the top of my head. A soft purr rumbled in his chest.

It was a sweet gesture, but inside I felt like I could burst into tears.

I liked Charles(a lot), but I felt so much more natural around Oliver. Was I ever going to be destined for a boyfriend?

And if I was, who would it be?
