We Are Young and Doomed

Milly Farber is tired of being boring, withdrawn, and socially awkward. At least, that's how she sees herself. She is determined to enjoy life. To stand out. To be exciting. To excite someone.

Jasper Hewn always took notice of the quiet little blonde girl who kept to herself at the back of the class. He always thought she seemed intriguing. But he never had the nerve to say hello.

Told from both perspectives in short bursts. Each chapter title is something the character is feeling, but it doesn't necessarily reflect the contents of the chapter. It's more of a reflection of their nervousness and self-consciousness within the situation.

3. I Only Just Met You

He was cute. And he was staring.

And I was the new Mil... I mean, Liscent Farber.

So, I decided I was going to say hi.

"Hi," I said.

"Hi, Milly," he said, still openly staring.

Crap. I was going to have to tell other people that I was changing my name. Maybe this wasn't such a good idea. They'd just think I was odd. But... odd was interesting. Okay. I'm sticking to it.

I smiled and stuck out my hand awkwardly, regretting the gesture but knowing that taking it back would only make things worse, "It's Liscent, now."

One of his eyebrows rose up in question, but he shook my hand anyway. Geez, it was adorable.

"It's nice to meet you, Liscent," he said. "Jasper."

I knew his name. I'd thought he was the cutest boy on the face of the planet since the sixth grade. So, I thought I'd tell him.

"I know."

My face flushed, warm and embarrassed and unable to say the rest. I know, and I've loved you for over five years. Pshaw!

"What made you change your hair?" he asked, still staring.

I shrugged. It was the easiest change to make, thus the first. I bet if he ever decided to make an image change, the first thing he'd do would be to cut off that floppy brown hair that hung a tad bit too long around his face and eyes. Not that I would want that...

"Just felt like something different," I answered.

"This is the first time I've ever heard you talk," he said.

He just came out and said it.

"I know," I blushed again and turned in my seat to face the front of the class. This was a terrible idea.

"I like it," he said and I turned my glance to notice he was looking down at his desk. "I like you taking. You should talk to me more often."

"Okay," I said.

But, that was the end of the conversation.
