Hi, my name is Kate. I am a bit of a chubby girl, not to much just a little. I have long, dark, wavy hair, I am only 5 foot 1 so I'm pretty short! I used to have the best life that everyone dreams of, I had tons of friends, everyone was nice to me but, I had the biggest crush on my best friend and we were so close to dating! Well...that was before he went to camp and changed everything. He is now a big jerk that came back with a girlfriend and is nothing but rude to me! I have no friends anymore besides my best friend Aliya who I go to for everything.
"I'm going to miss you so much Kate", he says while coming to give me a hug.
"I'm going to miss you to, but you better not forget me", I said with a tear escaping my right eye.
"Hey, hey don't cry, I could never forget my best friend?"
I think to myself, "yah....best friend" but what I actually say is just "I don't know" I really need to tell him my feelings "Your probably going to come back with a new girlfriend and forget all about me..."
"Kate, that will never ever happen ok, you will always be my number one girl", he says with a straight face.
"Do you promise?", I ask.
"I promise", he says trying to hold in his tears.
"Well i'll see you a couple weeks before summer ends", a tear now rolling down his cheek.
He starts to lean in for a kiss, I don't know what to do! I get butterflies in my stomach! I have been waiting for this moment ever sense we were little! I start to lean in to, but then...
"Niall come on it's time to go!", his mom says trying to hurry him along. We look at each other and then look down blushing. I can't believe we were just about to kiss!
"Alright mom, I'll be there in a minute!" He smiles at me and kisses my cheek. "Bye Kate", he says one last time.
"Bye Niall", I say trying to hold in my scream that is bursting to come out!
(End of flashback)
I was taking a walk around my neighborhood the day before school started when I saw Niall and his girlfriend walking towards me.
"Hey Kate, your looking extra fat today", says his girlfriend Marisa. Of course they laugh and say a couple more jokes, but I never said a word because I wanted to take the high road....although it was mostly because I was to scared of embarrassing myself and giving them another thing to make fun of me about.
I walked away and shed a tear here and there because that's the boy I used to love or still do, the feeling just wont go away, no matter how hard I try to push it away.
I was walking down my street when Niall comes up to me.
"Were you crying back there?", He says while laughing but what looks like concern in his eyes.
"Why does it matter to you!"
"It doesn't, just wanted to know", he says while looking down.
I think to myself "Why is he doing this, shouldn't he be being mean to me?"
"Where is your girlfriend anyway, she's usually always attached right at your hip?"
"I took her home, I broke up with her..."
"Why would you do that? I though you really liked her?"
"No, she's not really my type. She made me a person I didn't want to be", he says while looking sad.
"Niall, can I ask you a question?"
"Of course", he says with genuine concern.
Ok now I'm really confused. "What happened to the promise you made me right before you left, that you would never forget about me and that we would always be best friends?"
"People change ok, leave me alone", he says while walking away.
I could of sworn I saw a tear go down his face...but I don't care, it's none of my business.
