The Story Of Marcel

Marcel always had it hard in school. Everyone judged him on his clothes and glasses and what he looked like. They never got to know what was on the inside which was a really sweet boy, until a surprise turns up one day at school.

6. Decision Time

This doesn't make sense! Hazel hates Joey just as much as I do. I try to catch her eye but shes avoiding my looks towards her. I sigh, maybe I dreamt yesterday, I don't know. I get through the rest of school as usual on my own, Hazel has no shortage of friends so of course she wouldn't be alone. Im waiting at the bus stop for a bus when I see her walking towards me. Im hoping shes come to explain when I remember she gets the same bus. She stands on the opposite side of the bus stop from me. When we get on the bus I guess I'll have to try and make it up to her. The bus pulls up and she takes a seat. I sit down next to her. "Hazel..." I begin but she cuts me off. "Just save it Marcel, I'm sorry I ruined things for you with Mindy, I didn't realise how much you liked her," she says looking at the window the entire time. "Hazel I'm sorry, it wasn't your fault," I say, "And anyway, I was wondering I-if YOU wanted to g-go to the D-dance with me?" I asked stuttering as I always do. She looked at me with a blank expression. "No, I cant, I'm already going with someone. But I feel honoured to be your back up or second choice." She says turning back to the window. The bus pulls up to my stop. "Wh-who are y-you g-going with?" I ask even though I think I already know. "Joey," she tells the window and that's when I feel it. Something in my chest that makes me want to bend over and cry, or scream, or swear, or maybe all 3. I just nod and get off the bus. So this is what heartbreak feels like. Well, they don't exaggerate when they say it hurts. That just leaves one more thing for me to do. I have 3 weeks to make it up to Hazel but I know just where to start.
