You looked out the window and saw
the straight haired girl, still pretending to be looking at birds with her
binoculars and not-so-discretely throwing glances at where you were. You raised
an eyebrow, amused, and closed the curtain again, going back to the bed where
your best friend was sitting.
- She’s still there? - he asked,
Bobby groaned in desperation.
- When are they going to stop?! - he
You shrugged in response and laid in
the bed by his side, taking his PSP from the nightstand and looking for your
last save in Tekken.
Suddenly you felt a weight on your belly and Bobby was moving and
groaning above you.
- YAH! KIM JIWON! - you screamed and
pushed him away.
- I’m being serious here!
- Oh for Christ sake, Bobby! You
have two cute girls fallen for you and following you around. It’s not like is
the first time it happens. - you said, annoyed - Just pick one and destroy
their friendship! Or pick none and tease them until they’re crazy.
- You’re mean… - he mumbled,
pouting, and then added - And they’re scary!
- They did nothing the previous ones
haven’t done it already.
Bobby always had girls fallen for
him. It was something you grew used to after being his best friend for so many
When you still studied together,
before he moved away, it was a hell to be his best friend. Everyone seemed to
assume you were together, so every girl who had interest on him - that being,
every girl on the school - ended up bullying you.
He never showed interest in anyone,
and for a while you even wondered if he was gay, but after bringing this up in
a conversation, he fiercely denied and then admitted that the reason why he
never showed interest in none of those girls was because he was already in love
He refused to tell you who was it,
and even though you were curious, after a while you let go of it.
- I don’t understand why you’re
still so reluctant about girls having a crush on you. - you said going back to
your game - I mean, you can’t still be in love with that girl you told me. You
changed schools without confessing to her, there’s no way you’re going to see
- I love how positive you are about
love. - he said sarcastically and laid by your side again.
- I’ve had a crush for you since we
met and you never noticed. Don’t go blaming me for being pessimistic.
You raised your eyes from the PSP
and saw Bobby staring at you.
- You’re kidding me, right? - he
blurted out after a while.
- It’s not my fault that you’re
dumb, Jiwon! You were always so busy worrying about a girl who doesn’t know
that you exist that you never noticed me! But it’s okay, really… We’re always
going to be best friends anyway.
Before you could say anything else,
Bobby was hugging you. His face was buried on your chest and his arms tightly
wrapped around your waist.
- 바보… - he
mumbled in korean against the cloth of your sweater.
- YAH! Kim Jiwon! Who is the fool?!
Let me go!
He looked at you and suddenly his
hands were on your cheeks and your faces were too close to each other.
- You. - he whispered - Me. We’re
And then he was kissing you.
And then you understood.
And, yes, you were both fools… two
fools in love, who failed to notice sooner how much you love each other.
