Javier’s POV


I don’t know why I did that. It was not my intention. I don’t even like her! That was the most absurd thing I have ever done. And to think that she’s my best friend’s little sister? Yeah, Clay would kill me.


The next day I notice that she seemed very distant but I couldn’t blame her. I probably scared her.


“So… Uhm.” I couldn’t start to say anything. It was awkward. It was just a kiss. No big deal. So why am I being like this?


“Uhm, I think.. we should.. Uhm.. have a break for today?” She suggested.


“Y-yeah… I guess so.” I said.


“Uhm.. Yeah.. well, have a nice day then.”


I was a little reluctant to leave since I had promised her brother I’d help her out but, the more I stay, the more awkward it was.


I sat on the park contemplating on what’s really happening to me.. Man this is weird.


Then I saw this young couple, I mean young, as in 16 or 17 –ish. They we’re holding hands and doing couple-ish stuff or whatever.


What would it be like holding Chelsea’s hands though?.....


Wait wait, what?


Okay that was odd.. but maybe just a… whatever.


“Yes, seriously. I don’t know what came to me! I just had to kiss her.”


I look over to my side and I see these 2 men talking. The one was obviously distraught while the other one seemed to be so interested.


“Do you even like her?” The other one asked.


“I don’t know. But I couldn’t get my mind of her.”


“Does your heart like, skips a beat everytime she-“


“So far, no. But my palms starts sweating and my heart beat starts beating fast… it’s weird.”


“Dude, you’re in love.” The other one said while laughing at the other one.


“Impossible!” the other one released a scoff.


“I never get serious with girls.”


“Even with her?”


I couldn’t stand to hear more so I had to get away.


I got up from the bench and walked to wherever my feet take me.


I felt tired and thirsty so I stopped to grab some drink in a local convenience store. I was about to go to the counter when I bumped into someone.


“Oh sorry.” Then we looked at each other.


“Oh, hey, Chelsea.” I greeted her.


“Hey.” She smiled at me, still with a little awkwardness.


Then my palms starts sweating and my heartbeat starts beating faster.
