Just from the way he talked,it was obviously Toph.Instead of facing him,I grabbed my things and left quickly.I don’t think I can handle this.What if he heard the whole thing?Would he still think of me as his best friend?I heard someone call my name from behind.
“Anne!!Anne!Anne wait!” Toph said running,Should I stop? Should I go ahead and run again just to avoid confrontation? What if Cheska popped out again? I didn’t realize I stopped for a bit.A bit long enough for Toph to grab me by the arm.It would be impossible to escape his grip because he compared to me is like a giraffe with a hamster.Me being hamster of course.
“Anne! What are you doing?Why are you running away from me?What did you mean on what you said earlier at our secret place??” he said,his hands clutching my arms.
“You wanna know why?I can’t stand seeing you with another girl.It hurts so much to know that that girl would never be me.‘Cause I’m always the best friend.Remember the time when we were talking on how to make Cheska fall in love with you? I wished I was Cheska.Then it came true.I don’t want to sulk at your happiness.Even though I am.I knew falling in love with you would be no big thing for you.If you knew,I would just be a hindrance on your dream relationship with Cheska.”
“I broke up with Cheska,Anne.” he said sadly.
“Oh my god.I-I’m so sorry.I didn’t mean to.I–” he stopped me.
“None of this is your fault Anne.I didn’t feel as giddy as I was when I,we talked about her.It seemed I had to act in a specific way for her to like me.But when I’m with you,I can be myself.I have fun when I’m with you.You accepted me for who I am;the normal,video-game loving,Toph,not the national team goalkeeper one unlike Cheska did.Oh yeah,have you ever wondered what was the letter I was writing?” he asked me.
“Duh,a letter for Cheska?It’s too obvious.” I tolf him.He shook his head in reply.
“It was a letter for the girl I truly loved.Hoping for her to be my girlfriend”,he told me,handing me a folded piece of paper,“here read it”.
I opened the letter and from the looks of it,it’s very very sweet–a side of Toph I once longed for.But here I am,reading a letter for his future girlfriend.He could be either asking me if it’s okay or *GULP* is for me.
I know you wanted to know the contents of this letter.Well here it is.I wanted to tell you before that I had feelings for you.A more deeper feeling besides our being best-friends.I don’t know how your reaction will be.Judging by the way I know you,you’d look at me weirdly as if I were joking but I’m not,this time.When we were still kids,I told you my dream to be with Cheska.When it did,it turned sour.Hey,no one can splash you a drink except for me! Kidding! Anyway,I hope I’m not rushing things but would you be my girlfriend-slash-best-friend-slash-prom-date?
“Hmm,let me think…No way!you missed our marathon!” I said jokingly.He looked down,the way he does when he’s disappointed.
“But since maybe they’ll re-run,I say yes.” I added.You should’ve seen the look on his face! He carried me off my feet and we–kissed for a short time.
“I love you.” He said.
“Same here..Kidding!! I love you too"I joked.He put me down on the ground and it started raining again.He curtsied and held out his hand
"May I have this dance?"
And we danced together in the rain.
