I’ve gotten really close to Y/N. We’ve talked a lot and gotten to know each other. But things were a little awkward after the whole kiss thing that happened. I knew I had feelings toward her when we kissed but now I know that my feelings are growing stronger and stronger everyday. All I can ever think about is kissing her again and being able to call her mine. All I can think about is being able to hug her and never let go.
“Mr. Kay.” I heard my teacher say, but it sounded distant.
She’s always on my mind. She never leaves my head. And when I see her my heart races. Sometimes my palms get a little sweaty.
“Mr. Kay!” I heard a ruler smack onto my desk.
My eyes flickered up and I saw my teacher standing in front of my desk with an angry look.
“I uh.. yes?”
“Answer number 3.”
Everyone was staring at me. I looked at the board and saw we were going over a worksheet.
“Correct…” she said turning around and walking over to the board.
I sighed as I looked at the board and tried to concentrate on what we were doing. I watched the clock hands move oh so slowly, time feeling like it’d only continue to be slow. Then before I know it the bell rings. I quickly gather my things and exit the classroom. I go to find Y/N. I turn the corner and see her exiting through the door. She looked around and her eyes landed on me. I lifted my arm and waved at her. A smile appeared on her lips as she walked over to me and stood by my side.
“Hey Robbie.” she said looking up at me.
“Hi.” I smiled.“
"Oh my god Mr. Johnson is a pain in the ass.” she said as we began to walk.
“Yeah. I’m glad I don’t have him this year.” I chuckled.
“Well you’re lucky…” she chuckled. “So where you headed?”
“Art room, you know that.” I said nudging her lightly,
“Oh yeah… right.” she chuckled scratching her head.
“I could walk you to your bus.” I shrugged.
“Or maybe I could join you in the art room today?” she suggested with a small shrug of her shoulders.
I glanced over at her and she was looking at me. Her eyes sparkled and her smile brightened the dark hallways.
“Sure, why not.” I shrugged. “I can drive you home.”
We walked to the art room. I open the door and held it open for her.
“Why thank you, Robbie.” she said as she walked in.
“You’re certainly welcome, Y/N.” I said following behind her.
She sat down at a table near the back of the room and watched as I took a seat next to her. I smiled warmly at her.
“So what do you want to do?” I asked.
“I do have an art project to finish. I’m a little behind.” she said. “Drawing is not my strong suit.”
“Oh, well let’s see it.” I said tapping the table as she stood up.
“Okay, but don’t laugh.” she said as she went to a cabinet and grabbed a big paper.
She held it against her chest as she sat back down.
“And the big reveal.” I said with a toothy grin as I tapped the table once again.
“I won’t, now show me.”
She hesitantly placed the paper upon the table. My eyes flickered from her to the paper. It was absolutely beautiful. She was creating a lion with water color. The best part about it was that it had a rainbow mane. It gave it character and really showed her personality. Strong, confident, fun, bold, unique, beautiful.
“This is amazing Y/N.” I said looking over at her.
“Really?” she asked full of shock.
“Yes, it’s absolutely brilliant. I love the way you made the mane so colorful.” I said pointing to the mane.
“Thanks Robs.” she said and hugged me.
I smiled and hugged her back. I rubbed her back before she pulled away. I looked at her and she looked at me.
“I’m almost finished. I just have to make the tail. I’ve tried over and over and I fail each time. Can you help me out?” she asked with a shrug and an awkward smile.
“Of course I can.”
She handed me a pencil. I looked at her lion and began to draw the tail. I left it without color so she could do it.
“Thank you Robbie.” she smiled, then began to paint in the tail.
“Remember when we first came here and you said that you weren’t good at art?”
She looked up at me.
“Well you’re a total liar.” I teased nudging her a little.
“I’m really not.” she laughed and went back to coloring the tail.
“You really are.” I said getting up and walking over to my little corner.
“Stop Robbie! I’m blushing.” she giggled, still work on her picture.
“Well I’m sorry but it true.” I said grabbing a sheet of paper and putting it on the table.
I began to try and think of something I could do. I watched as she gently moved the paint brush across the paper. Then an idea clicked into my head. I grabbed my camera and walked over to her, completely forgetting the paper. She looked up at me and a confused look appear on her face.
“Robbie, why do you have your camera?” she said asked.
“I have a project I need to work on for photography. Would you maybe want to help?” I shrugged with the camera and grinned.
“Okay. But after I finish up.” she said and went back to the lion.
She picked up the pencil and quickly fixed something. I looked into the frame of my camera and took a picture. She looked up and narrowed her eyes.
“Why Robbie?” she said trying to sound angry but she only sounded adorable.
“The project.” I said looking at the photo, which was perfect, then back up at her.
“Right.” she chuckled.
After a few minutes she finished up and put her painting and the supplies away.
“Okay. So your project.” she said walking up to me.
“Yes, let’s head outside.”
“Yeah, I was thinking we could go to the big tree by the side of the school.”
“Oh, yeah. That’s fine, lead the way.” she said gesturing toward the door.
“I will.” I with a small smirk and strutted out the door and her following behind me.
I slowed down and turned so she could come next to me. We walked down the hall. I took a few shots of her just walking from a distance. Then once we got outside we went to the tree.
“So what should I do?” she asked with a shrug.
“Yeah, just like sit on the ground or against the tree or lean against it. Do what feels right.” I said gesturing to the tree.
She leaned against the tree. and looked at me.
“Okay, just act casual I guess…” I said and began to take the pictures. Some from the side, some from far away, some from different angle.
As I was about to take the last shot she looked at me and stuck out her tongue and giggled. I took the picture. I looked at her and laughed along with her. She lied her head against the tree.
I looked at the picture and she looked perfect. Her smile was bright and her eyes sparkled. The light, gentle breeze blew her hair back perfectly. Her skin had a beautiful glow to it.
“How do they look?” she asked making my eyes flicker up toward her.
She looked at me with curiosity in her eyes. I stood up and walked over to her. She stood up and leaned next to me. I handed her my camera and she went through the photos.
“How are you so good at this?” she asked.
“I uh… practice.. I guess.” I said shrugging awkwardly.
I looked at her again as she looked through the photos. Everything she does just makes me weak. The sight of her makes me want her. I want her to be mine.
“They’re just so good.” she chuckled as she kept going through the pictures.
“Thanks.” I said.
She looked up and me and handed me back my camera. I looked down at the camera.
“Maybe we could go up to the roof and take a few shots?”
“The roof? How would we get up there?” she asked with much shock and confusion.
“I have my ways.” I smirked.
I started to walk back toward the school and she quickly followed behind me. When we got up to the roof she looked at the view you get from the school. You can see a good amount of the campus.
“This is so cool!” she said like an excited little kid.
“Yeah. I come up here every once in a while to just get some quiet.” I shrugged.
As she walked around I took pictures of her. She walked up to to edge of the roof and looked down. I took a picture before running up to her.
“Be careful!” I said and she turned back and looked at me.
“I will Robbie.” she said with a giggle.
She looked back out at the view one last time before she walked away from the edge and over to me.
“Why didn’t you ever show me this?” she asked poking my chest.
“I-I don’t know.” I said with a shrug.
She sighed, “You okay Robbie?”
“Yeah. I’m fine.” I smiled.
“Are you sure? You seem a bit uneasy.”
She was right. My emotions are just driving me nuts. I want to tell her how I feel but I’m terrified that she won’t feel the same way. I just don’t want our friendship to end because I care about her and she’s my best friend.
“Yeah I’m fine.”
“Robbie.” she said in a serious tone.
“Y/n.” I said mocking her tone.“
She furrowed her eyebrows and folded her arms across her chest. I did the same thing. She tried to stay serious but soon began to laugh.
"Come on Robbie just tell me what’s up.” she said.
I sighed. Maybe this was it. I guess this is the time that I should tell her. I mean, we’re alone and nothing could possibly interfere.
“Okay. I’ll tell you… There’s this girl.”
“Oooo Robbie! Details!” she teased nudging me.
I chuckled and blushed as she kept nudging me.
“Well I’ve known her for a while and were great friends. It’s just…” I trailed off.
“It’s just I want to tell her how I feel but I’m scared.”
“Robbie. You shouldn’t be scared. You are the funniest, most intelligent, creative, kind, and caring guy I’ve met. Any girl who wouldn’t like you is completely stupid.”
“Really? Do you mean that?” I asked.
“Yeah. Of course I do! You are my best friend Robbie. You should tell her how you feel.”
“Okay. I will.”
“Good! Now tell me, who’s the lucky girl.” she said with a chuckle.
“Well, she’s you.” I said scratching the back of my neck.
Shock filled her eyes. Her cheeks flushed.
Tears slowly began to form in my eyes.
“Yeah.. I understand if you don’t feel the same way… I mean you deserve better than me. And–”
“No Robbie. Don’t say that.” she put her hands upon my cheeks and rubbed one gently with her thumb.
“Don’t say that. Robbie I care about you. I was actually kind of upset when you said that there was someone else.”
“Yeah. I’ve liked you for a few months now.”
A smile formed upon my face and the tears were gone. I wrapped my arms around her waist and gently pressed my lips upon hers. Our lips moved slowly, passionately. They moved in sync, they fit like two puzzle pieces.
I couldn’t even explanation the joy that was rushing through my head. The butterflies that swarmed in my stomach. Having the girl that I’ve wanted to have for months like me back.
As our lips pulled apart a smile formed upon both our faces. A feeling of relief, joy, and love filled my body. Didn’t want this moment to ever end.
