Almost Is Never Enough

"Don't worry I will catch you if you fall" he smiles.
"Even if I fall in love with you?" I ask him
"Only if you promise to catch me too" he says softly in my ear.

3. Love Story

“We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes and the flashback starts
I'm standing on there, on balcony in summer air”

 

I woke up to the same white and lifeless ceiling, I make my way to the bathroom having a big and relaxing shower, afterwards I put on some t-shirt and jeans and make my way downstairs to the kitchen…as always my mom is fixing the table for breakfast and my dad is reading his journal, my sister must be upstairs getting ready because she always has to impress…Yes it’s sad how society works these days, how we have to dress something that we don’t like to impress other people that don’t even give a damn about you, it’s sad my sister is one of those people…

“Good Morning” I mumble, nothing happened, no one moved until…3….2….1…

“Good Morning Mommy, Good Morning Daddy” my sister’s irritating voice makes echoes through the whole kitchen making my dad look at her with a pleased smile and my mom give her a kiss …sometimes I think I wasn’t born in the right family, sometimes I think I don’t belong here…

You don’t belong here sweet heart

The same shiver surrounds my whole body making me blink and within seconds come back to reality…

“I said…do you want eggs?” my Mom was now yelling at me…

“No thanks I’m fine, I’ll just eat something at school, bye!” I said walking to the door and getting out of that horrible environment…every single day was the same thing, I was so full of living in that house…so full of living with them and my horrible sister…I don’t belong here…

 I took a step outside and felt a little cold breeze…it was my first day of school…1st of September…how cool is that? Not cool…I walk for around 5 or 6 minutes and arrive at the gates of my school.

As soon as I arrive I’m attacked by this tall girl, with brownish eyes, curly blonde hair and a beautiful naïve blue dress…. Alex…Oh how I missed her.

“Soooo…how was your summer? I missed you! Did you have fun without me? Did you read all of your books? Studying?” she was so excited of seeing me again that I hugged her to shut her up…

“I missed you, and my summer was horrible as always…” I sighed and she let’s go of me, making me face her…

“Well let’s forget about summer and have some fun inside the classroom, shall we?” she asks  more excited than ever…I smile weakly at her and follow her to the inside of the building…I missed this building, I miss all the people chatting here, the lockers, the front door, the parking lot I may sound crazy but I also miss detention, not that I spend most of my time there, because I don’t…well I open my locker to find this pink letter inside it, I open it and…

Ashley’s 18th Birthday, the whole school is invited

How fun. Not. I rolled my eyes at the paper taking the books for my first class…Biology how fun…yes, my life is full of sarcasm and I love sarcasm it helps me a lot, it helps me deal with stupid people that run through this school corridors everyday…

I know this may sound weird but right after I closed my locker, my butt was hurting and I was laying on the cold hard ground…yes…I open my eyes to find myself giving my hand to some stranger that helps me up…I take a look at myself and I was just about to insult whoever had done this when our eyes meet…yes it may sound cliché but his gaze met mine, and believe me when I say that those big green orbs are really hard to miss, with this thoughts my cheeks turn red and I feel him smirk…

“W-what…I mean…” I was so confused and making a fool of myself…

“Sorry” we both say at the same time…Embarrassed I look down to find my Biology book laying there opened...I catch it and smile again at his beautiful green eyes…they were so soft, and gentle, but there was something more behind those eyes…his hair was perfectly curled and he was wearing this big sweat and some skinny black jeans…great sense of style I must admit…

“Emma!” I heard Alex from the other end of the corridor…I turn my gaze to her and saw her making me a sign to hurry up…

“So…I’m sorry again, and bye” I say running from there making my way to the classroom…quite strange I suppose for a first meeting…awkward…

**

Class was boring as always…Alex was sitting in the other end of the class and I was alone in the back …the clock was ticking, ticking, ticking and ticking until the sound of it is “interrupted” by a single knock on the door…Mr. Toms, opens the door giving everyone the vision of a curly haired boy, with his shinning green eyes…him…I look around to find precisely what I was waiting for…girls whispering, other  people not giving a damn and girls sending him some disgusting looks…ew…

“Class, meet Mr. Styles…” the teacher announced with a smile…

“Hey I’m Harry” his voice was raspy; something that I didn’t notice when we bumped…maybe because he didn’t talk or I didn’t give him the chance to do so….

I roll my eyes at my thoughts and turn my gaze again to my interesting drawing…

After 5 minutes I feel this big shadow above me and I was almost prepared to hear the teacher yell at me when his eyes meet mine again, how incredible is that…I mean how awkward is that? Is he following me or something? Weird…

“Can I seat here?” he asks looking at the table right beside me…

No. Of course not…

“Yeah sure, why not…” I make a small smile and focus myself on my drawing again…he just sits there and I swear I could feel all of those wannabes in my class staring at me with death stares…Well I just ignore them and focus on my beautiful drawing…

**

Do you know that weird feeling you get when someone is looking at you and you’re too shy to look at them…well I just knew that he was looking at me and that is quite annoying…

“Take a picture it will last longer” I whisper so the teacher wouldn’t hear us…

“Hmm…I was just admiring your talent…what’s that suppose to be? A pig?” you whisper.

He starts laughing and I do to…he is insulting my unicorn…ok, it’s a unicorn…

“It’s a unicorn…” I say between laughs…

That causes even more laughter and then we notice that the whole class is looking at us including the teacher…

“Perhaps you two want to share with us what’s causing so much laughter, so we can laugh too…” the severe tone of her voice echoed through the whole room…

We both look down minding our own businesses making the teacher proceed with her class…

“I guess we can talk again…”he says catching your breath…

“Who says I want to talk to you?” I smile …
