For the next couple of days things were pretty bad. Everyone was asking me why I broke up with him. It was so annoying! I swear I was getting ready to slap them. All I would say was "he was gonna break up with me, so I beat him to it". And you know what really gets me? The fact that the people who wanted me to break up with him were the ones telling me to get him back. I mean, seriously?!
Every day Joseph would stare at me with this hurt look on his face but watever! He hurt me first.
Yes I had a feeling he wanted to break up with me so that's one reason. Another is I liked John. Then there's the fact that I fell in love with the him he was before. He was sweet and kind and smart. But now? Ha! He's nothing but a know it all.
I was getting through my day as best I could but it didn't exactly help that me and him always get grouped together in math. I just ignored him and talked with the other two group members.
It was finally time to go outside. Thank god! This was the only time I could get away from all the questions and glares and just hang out with my best guy friend, John. Yes I still liked him but I was good at hiding it. No dout about that. I felt like screaming at the world though. I wasn't in my normal cheerful mood but John got me close enough. We talked about anything and everything. I just love how we never would run out of things to say. I couldn't bear the fact that I might loose him to Joseph. I shook off the thought. Then I noticed John had a really serious look on his face. "Are you okay?" He asks me.
"Yeah why wouldn't I be?" I answer.
"No I mean about the breakup." He says. You can tell he cares.
" I'm fine. I swear. " I say, trying to convince him although I couldn't even convince my self.
" are you sure?" He asked. Wow I didn't think he cared this much. If anything, I expected him to be asking Joseph these questions.
"Yeah I'm sure" I say. Trying hard to soud confident.
He doesn't look satisfied but lucky for me, he drops the subject. Then somewhere along the way we somehow start talking about how I get asked out. I said normally I just give people a note but that's just cuz I'm too shy to do it in person. I say I like it better when a guy asks in person. It tells me that they're not afraid but I wouldn't really mind any other way.
After a while, I thought about it again. Why would he ask me that? Was he planning on asking me out? I shook off the thought because I knew I would only get hurt.
