8. Chapter 7
So it’s December and as usual, it is freezing. But I can’t blame it on the month or that its winter because it still feels like this in August when its summer. With it being winter it means there is a lot of ice around I have to be really careful walking home because I’m a bit of a clutz. So my day at school has finished and now I have to make the agonizing walk back home. I set off on the 15 minute journey shivering as the cold air hit my face. Even though I didn’t necessarily want to go home I felt excited to see him. I don’t know why I feel excited, and to be honest if it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t feel any sort of positive feeling ever!
I carefully trudged down the slippery pathway my eyes firmly placed on my feet. Even though I wasn’t looking I knew he was looking at me. I could, almost literally, feel his eyes boring into me as if he was reading a really fascinating book. Maybe that’s what he’s doing? Trying to read me. Trying to figure me out.
Against my brains instructions I glanced up through the curtain of hair that covered my face and saw exactly what I expected. Alex Thompson, the most popular boy in my school, looking at me with a wonder behind his eyes. But what I didn’t expect was him to hold my gaze and not turn away and I couldn’t help but stare back. It wasn’t until now that I had realised the beauty of the boy. His dark hair, perfect not a strand out of place. His flawless skin looked as if it was glowing. For some reason he reminded me of sunshine. This, I can’t deny, is something I need right now on a dull day like today. I need a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel.
His green eyes held my gaze and I couldn’t help but feel mesmerized. The butterflies in my stomach were going crazy! They were bouncing of the bars of the cage that bound them where they were. I quite like the feeling though...
I was enjoying the moment so much that I thought I might smile. I could feel it playing on the corners of my lips. That made me excited. All I could think in think of in that moment was ‘I’m going to smile because of him and I’m okay with that!’
But like I said before, everything nice that happens in my life gets ruined. But even with that in mind, what happened next was totally uncalled for!
