He’s new. I know things about him that scream at my senses to push him away, but the idea of danger excites me. When he compliments me it’s like no other compliment from anybody else has ever meant anything, because he has no reason to notice me, yet he does. Fear stabs at my heart every time a joke is made about our sudden closeness, but hope trickles into the wound, healing it despite my body’s best efforts to let it scar, and be a warning. He makes me want to be confident, yet he makes me so weak that I am anything but, confident. Why does he notice me? Is he like this with all the girls, or am I important to him? Does he even care? Why do I feel like nothing at all compared to him, yet his attention makes me feel like I am everything in the world?
