“God I hate the rain” I complained, I’d been on the phone for two hours with my best friend and this was about the hundredth time that I had said this.
“I know Hailey, but there is nothing I can do about it I’m not Mother Nature” Aaliyah told me finally being annoyed with my complaining.
“Yeah I know, I’m sorry, it’s just that it’s been raining for a full week”
“Yes it’s March, what do you expect?”
“Sunshine and roses” I said letting some acid leak out of my voice
“Whoa, I think I just burnt my ear on the phone” Aaliyah said while laughing “But whatever what were we talking about before you interrupted with your weather comment?”
“What we by we I mean you always talk about?” I informed her
“Right… So anyways Daniel took me to this super expensive, classy place for dinner…” Aaliyah trailed off.
Once you got Aaliyah talking you didn’t really have to contribute much to the conversation. Some ooh’s and ahh’s in all the right places. This is really convenient half the time when you don’t want to talk much. Which I rarely like to talk I’m a very shy person so I don’t like to talk and put my two cents in just in case it gets turned around and then there is gossip going on after that.
This was exactly what Aaliyah did for another hour, until she came to the conversation I like to avoid. They guy I like.
Scratch that, the guy that I have liked since elementary school, Matthew Myers. Hot eighteen year old bad boy Matthew Myers, almost every girl in school likes Matthew, well not every girl but you know he is one of those guys that have almost every girl liking him you know. But what’s not to like he’s six foot two, short but not to short messy (But in the good messy way) dark brown hair. Bright green eyes, when he smiles he gets these really cute dimples, he has perfect white teeth for his perfect smile. His smile is perfect and breathtaking I might add. Muscular but not too much but just perfect, perfect long legs. He’s perfect in sports but he doesn’t play on any teams. He’s very smart he is in the top five in his classes (well the classes that I know about). He’s like a god.
I know I sound like a crazy stalker. But usually I can’t help but watch him, even though he ignores me well he ignores almost everyone. We have six out of seven classes together the only class we don’t have together is the last class of the day. Math class I was put in advance math while Matthew was not. It’s the longest class of the day and well not really the hardest but the hardest. I know, STALKER!
I really hate when the subject comes to this and it always does every night I should just learn to let her get her gossip out and get out all newz about her boyfriend (who I really dislike for his attitude towards Aaliyah all he wants is sex and she cant see that and if he got the chance to get another girl that would do more than Aaliyah does in that subject he would drop her like a hat I know he would), and I should just get out of the conversation then. But no I have to be nice and listen and answer the same way I always do.
“Have you talked to him today?” Aaliyah asked with a hint of doubt in her voice
“Does it really matter?” I asked
“Yes it does matter, you never talk to him you never even try to talk to him, and you don’t even know him but you’re totally hung up on him. He ignores you Hailey; he ignores everyone that isn’t in his little gang. You seriously need to get over him.
You need to get over him and find someone who knows that you are alive, someone that will like you for who you are. Someone that won’t care that you’re crazy” Aaliyah told me matter-of-factly.
“Leah…” I started to whine
“No really Hailey you have never had a boyfriend, you have never even been out on a date you need to get over this obsession with Matthew Myers”
“Leah I know you mean well but have you ever considered that I haven’t had a boyfriend because boys don’t like me because I’m not that pretty” I told her
“Hailey you are so definitely pretty, and guys do like you but you don’t give them a chance” she argued
“Bull Leah, you’re the pretty one I’m the smart one remember” I said
