So yea.

The story of a sophomore boy entering a public highschool named Nick who finds his way through social anxiety, relationships, and depression.


4. Chapter IV

Kate had to come over since my parents had a meeting. So we decided to go for a walk around my crappy neighborhood. We walked for a while, and I got kind of close to holding her hand. I never did, though.

    We walked to this little wall and sat down. And we did what we do best, we talked. And during that talking, she said that she loved me.

    Right there, sitting on that wall, Kate told me she loved me with her whole heart. She would never love anyone as much as she loved me, not even Sam.

    I should have kissed her right there. I should have reached over and kissed her on the mouth.

    I didn't, of course.

    Instead I told her I loved her too, and that I always would. I told her I hated her being with Sam, and that even though he was my best friend, he wasn't right for her. I didn't want her with a player, no matter how good he was to me.

    She told me she knew, but she couldn't stay away from him. She needed to be with someone, and my parents were so crazy about dating that she knew that we could never work. I felt like dying, because I knew it was true. I told her I was sorry, and I knew it was stupid.

    She hugged me tighter that day than she ever had before. We held each other, crying, for forever. I had never been so close to anyone in my entire life. She was perfect. And I was holding this perfect, broken creature in my arms. I never wanted to let her go. I never wanted her to go back to Sam, or to her bastard father, or to her school, or to her pain. I would take it all for her. I would have died for her. I probably still would.

    We sat there, sobbing, together. My arms held her and she hugged me like I was all she had left.

    “I love you, Nick,” she whispered in my ear as she cried.

    “I love you too,” I whispered back, “And I always will. Even if you go back to Sam. Even if we never speak again, I will never stop loving you.”

    We never saw each other again. She moved three days later in the middle of the night, because her dad beat the crap out of her mom.
