2. The Rose
The next day, he drove me to school. We walked down the hall holding hands. I felt so happy. Everyone was looking at us. He looked at me and said "don't pay attention to them; they're just shocked cause we are dating." So I tried not to pay attention to them.I kept my eyes on him the whole time. I felt so safe. He walked me to my first class, math. I don't like math. But thankfully he was there. We sit together. He looked at me and I looked at him until it was over. Then he walked me to my next class, literature. I kind of like that class because I like reading. But Jesse wasn't in that class. I didn't talk the whole class. I felt alone. It was a really bad feeling. But it was soon over. It felt like forever. He walked me to my next two classes. Then school was over and everyone went home.
A few minutes later I was on my bed and I heard a knock at my window. It was Jesse. I said "what are you doing here?" he smiled and said "I wanted to see you." See I was taking a nap cause of the day I had. I was asleep and had my pajamas on. He kissed me and said "I love you." I looked at him and said nothing. I didn't want to say I love you back because I don't know if I do or not. He looked at me and said "this is where you say I love you and we kiss." I said "but I don't know if I do or not." He looked into my eyes and said "maybe this will change your mind." He started to kiss me and we fell on my bed. But we were still kissing. We stopped for a second and I said "I love you." He smiled and said "well it's about time, I love you too. Hold on, I forgot something." He went out the window picked up a basket with chocolate covered strawberries and a beautiful pink rose and brought it inside. In the basket he grabbed the rose and said "this is for you. It's not a dozen roses but I thought you might like it." Getting reading to walk out of the room, I said " honey, I love it. I don't need a dozen roses." We ate the strawberries until there was one left. He picked up the strawberry and said "you can have the last one." I pushed it away and said "no you can have it." He pushed it back and said "come on, take it." This went on for a few minutes but eventually I took it. I ate it, looked up and said " that was a really good strawberry." We paused and I said "I was just wondering, why did you pick me to be your girlfriend? There are a lot of girls that like you so why me?" he looked at me, laughed and said "I picked you because you are beautiful, funny, nice, and perfect." I smiled from ear to ear and said "thanks, but you really need to go. I'm Exhausted." He walked to the window like he was leaving but turned around and said "I thought I could stay here tonight." I said "yes." We walked to the bed and laid down but this time he was different. He wouldn't talk. I tried to talk to him but he still wouldn't talk. So I eventually went to sleep.
