"I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU! "
Jeanne's eyes were wide and filled with tears. She was afraid
of what he would say to her.
Jeanne was a nerdy girl with thick glasses. She was a junior
in her middle school. She was in love with the hottest guy
in the entire school.
And now, she told him that she loved him.
"Haha! Shut up. Nobody would like you! Who do you
think I am?"
Jeanne had feared he would say something like that. She
was devastated. She started running. She didn't want to
face him ever again. All these thoughts and feelings ran
through her head. She continued running until she bumped
"Hey, whats up?"
She had bumped into James.
"What?! I'll Go Tell Him! Where Does He Get That Nerve!
Sometimes, I Don't Know Why I'm His Best Friend! That's
It! I'm Going To Go Beat Him Up!"
"NO! James! Don't do it! It's not his fault. I was
the foolish one to think we can ever date."
"No, it's OK! I should go."
"JEANNE... James grabbed her by the wrist as she was
getting up. Don't go..."
Jeanne stared into his eyes and felt so warm and fuzzy;
a feeling she didn't feel for a long time. She looked away
awkwardly. She was staring into his eyes for such a long
time that there was a awkward moment of silence between
them. Then, she gently took her wrist out of James grasp
and slowly walked away from him with tears in her eyes.
"Dammit, James! You really did it this time! Jeanne
just left you! And why are you trying to hit on her?"
James walked back home with his hands stuffed in his pocket.
Thoughts of Jeanne ran through his head. He didn't want
Jeanne to be hurt by a jackass. He wanted to show her that
he loved her. He wanted to show her he cared. But Jeanne
seemed to just ignore him. Just as he was deep in thoughts,
someone appeared in front of him. James stopped in his tracks
to find himself starring at Jeanne again.
"Oh, I'm so sorry... I'm very, very sorry about knocking
into you and leaving without saying a word. I'm sorry. Can
I repay you somehow?"
"Jeanne", James said, lifting her chin. Jeanne
looked through his soft eyes and almost melted.
"James..." said Jeanne. Suddenly, she started
crying. James was shocked.
"J-Jeanne? What's wrong?"
"I' m s-s-such a f-fool! H-How c-c-can I e-ever th-think
t-that E-Eric loves me?"
"Jeanne... I would not call that foolish... I actually
admire you for having the guts to confess your love. However,
crying about him is indeed foolish. Jeanne, don't cry about
that jerk. Here, let's go to my house. We're right in front
of it!" Jeanne nodded.
James led her to the bathroom.
"Take off your glasses. We need to wipe those tears
off." He said with a smile. Jeanne took them off without
a word. James turned on the water and wetted a washcloth.
Then, he gently wiped her tears off her face.
"James.. Do you love me?" James was startled by
"Why do you ask me that?"
"Because... it seems like it. Do you?"
"Haha! Jeanne, you are my friend."
"Oh... OK. I think I'm not so teary now. Thanks, James."
"No problem. Do you want something to drink?"
"Um... OK." She followed James out the door. He
handed her a glass of orange juice and they sat down outside
on a bench.
"Are you going to be all right?"
"Yeah... Thanks. But I don't think I'll be able to
face him again."
"When he calls you something bad, just yell my name
"OK." she said with a small laugh.
"But what are you going to do when I call you?"
"I'm going to beat him up!"
"What if everyone starts hating you?"
"It doesn't matter. As long as the one girl I love
"Ooh, James! You like someone?"
"Yeah... Guess? I'll never tell you until you get the
"Hmm... is it Amy? She's pretty! What about Lauren?
She's nice and quiet. Or is it Becca? She's generous. Or
maybe it's Courtney! She's not all that nice though..."
