A Crush?

I’m not equipped for this at all, watching him from the corner of my eye. Glancing at him every time he moves. It’s weird, yet I never seem to want stop myself.


First day back at high school,and I was nervous. I was new and only knew a handful of people. Heading to my third period after 2 periods of answering unnecessary questions about myself I wasn’t at my happiest: the walk was long and I was only focused about eating lunch.

I walked into my history class which looked boring because of the lack of decorations or creativity. I looked around trying to find a familiar face( I was early) not to find anyone. My eyes caught a mop of dark hair, walking to a seat I started to look at the boy with the dark hair. Tan skin, wearing joggers and a black tee,and his head tilted down scribbling in a notebook.

He looked up checking the time on the clock and looked around the room, making eye contact with me. “ Freckles” was the only thing that was in my mind when he looked at me. He had freckles that were shattered on his cheeks and nose. Freckles are not something I usually find attractive on a guy but his were adorable. More people walked in including 2 people I knew so class rolled on.

Later on in the day I realized he was also in my fourth period, English. I HATE ENGLISH. If i’m being completely honest I’m not a social butterfly; one of my friends would go to a party, but i would rather stay home and have a anime marathon night — like I do every night. In this very annoying class we had to stand up and announce our name, favorite hobby , and where we’re from.

It’s funny cause I only remember his statement from that day I don’t even remember what I said, that’s sad. His name was Carson ( not real name), he played soccer and was from Iran. Mind you this is the first time I have ever heard his voice and dang it was beautiful. Although he speaks a little fast, I was used to it living with my Jamaican grandma for 4 years.

After being around him for a while I was really starting to like him, he was really smart, like“ I can solve a rubix cube in less than 5 minutes smart“. He made friends with dorks (it’s a compliment) they were very funny.

He was really intriguing, which is something I’m not equipped for.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
