Dumb Love

By @velvet_rose

Is it True?

Have you ever had that one person you’re just truly in love with….but your afraid they won’t like you back? Welcome to my life. It’s almost time for my school to go on Christmas Break. My friends and I are at our desks having the weirdest conversation about mistletoe. “Mistletoe means people need to kiss.” “You don’t have to kiss under mistletoe.” “You know, most people stand under mistletoe and never even know it!” “Doesn’t it grow on trees?” I’m sitting here listening to their conversation, I’m trying to finish my essay before Christmas break. Everything was great, until they started talking about love. I felt really awkward listening to their conversation, because the one I love is right in the middle of it. The thing is, no one has ever liked me, ever. My friend Alisha looks over to Hunter, *ahem* a.k.a. the boy I like. Alisha asks, “Who do you like Hunter!?” He stares at her blankly and then tells her he wasn’t going to say. She tells him to write it down. “How do I spell it?” Hunter asks. “Just write how it sounds.” Me and my big mouth blurts out. He shows it to my friend and she starts flipping out. Just a minute later, all of my friends know, but guess who doesn’t! The bell rings and while I gather my things my friend Alisha tells me who Hunter likes. I was so shocked at what she had told me, I stormed out of the classroom and down the hallway to catch my bus. I don’t know why I had done it. Out of anger, surprise, excitement? All I knew was, I was shocked, and I had a letter to write.
