It had been a week since the milk accident and I sat with her everyday now. We would talk and laugh.
I still wanted her, I wanted her to be mine.
My football friends thought that I should sit with the team but, I didn't care what they thought. I want what makes me happy. Leslie James makes me happy.
When I sat with Leslie today, I needed to ask her something.
"Leslie, can I talk to you?"
"I don't want to be your friend anymore"
She looked at me, tears in her eyes. "I get it, your just like all the other jocks! You only like someone until you get bored, then you just leave them!"
"Leslie, I love you. Your the most beautiful girl and I want everyone to know!"
She wiped her tears and smiled. "You think I'm beautiful?"
"Gorgeous", I said smiling.
I stood up and shouted "Hey! I have an announcement"
Everyone in the cafeteria looked at me.
I turned and faced Leslie, "Will you Leslie James be my girlfriend?"
"Of course", she said laughing.
Everyone in the cafeteria clapped and cheered.
After lunch on our way to class we held hands. I wanted everyone to know that she was mine, that I had the best girlfriend.
