I felt his hands holding my arms firmly down, I looked him in the eyes,through his glasses, I knew something was wrong. He looked angry and sad at the same time. I couldn't move a step or say a single word. "why can't you see it!" he said in a mad voice, " I love you!". I was totally speechless now. "but you just don't see it don't you" he continued. I couldn't feel anything now. My legs started shaking, my heart aching and I felt out of breath. His hands were now on mine. He took my right hand and put it over his chest and put both his hands on it. "can you feel my heart beat?" he asked, "it only beats like this when you are around!" I couldn't take it any more, I wanted to fall down and cry. " I love you!" He said again, we both looked down, I felt my tears coming down my cheeks. " but you don't see it don't you" he whispered quietly. Then I felt his warm hands on my chin lifting my face up, his fingers on my checks whipping my tears away. " I don't like seeing you cry". I looked at his eyes, they looked heartbroken. I slowly started walking away until our hand fell apart . I stopped " I am sorry" I cried and started running away. I didn't look back at him. I kept running all the way home. When I got into my room I quickly locked the door. At this point my legs couldn't take it. I sat down, with my back to the door and cried. I cried because of the pain in my heart, I cried because I loved him but I couldn't tell him. I slowly started to get tiered and fell asleep.
"wake up!" shouted Alex. I got up
" oh, hi" I said quietly.
" aren't you going to get ready?"
" for what?"
" the dance!!" she screamed
" whats the time?" I quickly got up and ran towards the cabinet
" it is 9:30 ! and we have to be there by 10!!" she answered
I grabbed my short silky dress and ran to the bathroom to get changed.
when I got out, I went over and wore my purple hair bow. " so what do you think?" I asked
"ooh! someones looking cute tonight," she said, " but how come you don't have a date?"
" because I turned them all down," I answered
" yeah, I know but why?" she said as we walked sown the stairs
" I don't know," i said, "probably because I don't want a date to the dance!"
My mum dropped to the dance," you two enjoy your time, okay?" she said.
When I walked in the place was filled with couples dancing together. Alex's date walked right up to us "may I have this dance, he said with a bow"
"yes you may," she said with a smile, she winked at me and walked away
" well, I will go and sit down if you need me," i said. I walked towards an empty table.
I sat down staring at the wall and down at the table when a cold soft hand touched my shoulders.
I turned around to see him standing behind me I got up and stood face to face with him. He took my hand and took me out.
We walked into the woods but no one said a word since we left the hall.
" Listen, I am sorry about the other night I don't know what I was thinking," he said finally
" So all you said wasn't true?" I said, I stopped right where I am. He turned around and faced me.
" Well, it is kind of hard to explain..;" he whispered. Then I took his hands and put them over my chest, hoping that he would feel my heart.
" This is how I feel," I whispered to his ear, " I wanted to tell you but .. " but then he took his finger and put it over my lips.
" no need to say more," he said back. Thats when I felt his cold red lips on mine. His hands holding me from my waist and my arms were around his neck.
When my first kiss finally ended, I took a step behind. Now my hand was on his chest and was holding it tight.
" so is this my happy ending?" I asked
" I guess this is," he smiled back
" So what will I tell Alex, if she askes me where I have been?" I said quietly
" Just say that you were being a naughty girl," he laughed. I looked at him and smiled.
