5. Staring Contest

I walked out of the class room to be met up with Archades.

 

 

"Hey Genny." He smiled and wrapped his left arm around my shoulder. I awkwardly hugged my text book as he continued on speaking. " I haven't seen you all day, where have you been? You weren't hiding from me, were you?"

 

 

"Of course not Archades. It's been an entire summer since I've been in writing class. I just needed to reunite with my favorite teacher and writing spot and just let out all my unwanted emotions."

 

 

"You say that as if you don't remember I'm always here for you."

 

 

"Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know. I just need some time alone to think, ya know? Kinda like how for the last three summers you've been going off to camp to escape city life."

 

 

"I guess I understand, but I still am always here if you need me."

 

 

"Thanks Arch," I spoke, letting out a half smile as he kissed my cheek, his kind-of long hair tickling my face.

 

 

Just as he did, I made eye contact with Liam, who was walking the other direction, even though he should he heading off to lunch. He looked away as soon as he noticed me staring right back. Or maybe he looked away when he saw who was on the right of me.

 

He looked vulnerable and more upset than usual. It was the first time I hadn't seen his group crowded behind him.

 

I stared for a while longer, turning my head back and watching him turn the corner. He walked the way he used to. His hands were out of his pockets and he seemed to be polite to those who weren't hiding from him.

"Staring contest. Ready... And... Go!" I shouted at Liam unexpectedly. We were in the ice cream parlor across the street from our school. He was on his phone. Me, being the one with an incredibly short tension, got bored.

 

I could see my screams had given him a slight chill. He seemed to finally catch up with the moment. His brown eyes met with my own brown ones until I blew in his face, just before I was about to cave.

 

 

"Hey! Gen, that's considered cheating." He pouted and crossed him arms. I stuck out my tongue at him as he continued his pouting.

 

"Oh come one Liam, you know I love you."

 

 

He looked in the direction away from me. "Lovers don't cheat."

 

 

I let out a pout myself. In my attempt to get him to feel bad for making me sad, we both laughed, obviously failing at my task.

 

"Why can't I ever stay mad at you?" He said, wrapping me in a hug.

 

 

"Because I'm a magical fairy!" He spun me around as I threw the glitter I kept in my pocket into the air, covering his hair in the sparkling, green confetti.

 

"Indeed you are Miss Walker, indeed you are." We laughed at each other again, as we got stares from the tables around us.

"Genny, why are you always daydreaming now a days?"

 

I shook my head and found myself in English.

 

Had I really been day dreaming about Liam and I for an entire period?

 

"Sorry Mr. Fletcher. Alot on my mind I guess."

 

"It's fine Miss Walker, now open your text book to page 298."
