I walked home after school. I heard footsteps against the dirt path. Like, if someone was running.

Ethan appeared at my side. "When did you leave? I couldn't find you anywhere!" He said, flipping his hair. It was he did that.

"I want to show you something I found. But let's do it at 8:00. I have a game." Ethan told me eagerly.

"Oooh, okay!" I replied
What was he going to show me?

We kept walking to our houses

I walked inside my house and threw my bag against the wall. It fell down with a loud thud.
I walked to it and pulled out some worksheets I had to do for homework. "Ew, math." I grumbled. I didn't want to do the homework, but I did it quickly.

I noticed King hadn't come for dinner. "What's with King?" I asked my mom, tilting my head to one side.
"I'm not sure, Honey." my mom replied without looking from her plate.
I got up and pushed my chair in. "Excuse me." I said before walking down the hallway. I knocked softly on King's bedroom door.

"King? Are you okay?" I asked worried.

No response. I opened the door gently and I saw him sitting on his bed with his elbows rested on his knees and his head in his hands. "King?" I asked stepping in the room.

He looked up. "Yeah?" He replied.
"Are you okay? You don't look okay." I asked.

He sighed. "No, I'm not."
"What's wrong." I inquired, sitting down on his bed next to him.

"Well, I should not have done that to Ethan. He was my best friend and now he won't even talk to me. On top of that, Kyle found out about what happened in the locker room..."King started.

Kyle was King's boyfriend.

"and he got so mad, and broke up with me. Now, the two other people, besides you, Sticker, that I really care about have left me and it's all my fault." He said with a shaky voice.

I put my hand on his shoulder. I felt him tense up underneath the palm of my hand. King doesn't really like to be touched on the arms/shoulders/back/neck.

He didn't do anything, though he was tense.
"I know you screwed up, but that's okay. First of all, there is like 2000 kids at school. You can easily make more friends and possibly find another boyfriend. You should just apologize to Ethan and Kyle. Maybe, Kyle will take you back and maybe Ethan would probably be friends with you again." I reassured him. He smiled at me.

"Okay." He finally said. "Thanks, Sticker."
I smiled back at Him and left the room.

I felt the buzz of the vibration of my iPhone 5s against my thigh. I took it out of my pocket and looked and it was a text from Ethan.

"Meet me at the forest? Bring your bike." It said. I typed back, "Sure thing! :)". I loved the sound the keyboard made whenever I hit a key with my thumbs.

I quickly changed from my uniform into some shorts and an aqua flowy tank top and aqua converse. I loved the way it brought out my right eye. I put a yellow bow in my hair to match my left eye.

I grabbed my bike and left through the back door. I was in 10th grade. If I don't confess to Ethan, he may never get to be mine.

I saw Ethan standing outside of the forest entrance. "I found something cool." He said eagerly.
"Ooh, what is it?" I asked interested.
"Well, if we could go there..." He said looking at me saying we should quit talking and get to riding.

"Alright then! Let's go!" I rushed him to get on his bike.

We rode quickly through the forest and I followed him. He was taking me to a part of the forest where we hadn't gone before.. I was excited. And I was ready to confess my love for him.

We finally arrived at the place. It was a small abandoned cottage with vines and cobwebs all over the walls. The wooden door was rotting away and the windows were cracked and some broken. Some tiles from the roof were on the floor and broken. Ethan got off his bike and it fell to the floor and I did the same only I put out the kickstand. He walked over to the door and pushed it open carefully.

It creaked and then fell off the hinges and landed onto the floor with a large thud.
Dust clouds rose into the air, clouding my vision and making me sneeze.
"Bless you." Ethan said. "lets go in."
I nodded and followed him in. As we walked in the cottage, we looked around curiously and with every step we took, the wooden floor creaked more.

We opened a door to a room filled with ceramic statues of puppies and rabbits and kids playing and birds. There was one wooded bed and a TV which had a cracked screen and a broken bookshelf with books scattered all over the floor.

I sat on the bed and so did Ethan.
"This place is pretty cool!" I said, impressed.
"See? I told ya. Though I had never been inside." Ethan responded.
"Wanna play Uno?" He asked while taking out a pack of Uno cards.
"Of course!" I replied.

We played Uno for 2 hours. He beat me several times while I beat him 5 times.

I think it was time to confess.
I turned to face him and I got a lite closer and blushed. "Um...Ethan?" I asked.
"Yeah?" He replied. "I have to tell you something." I said blushing even more.

"Ethan, from the moment I met you, I've always been lost in your beautiful blue eyes. I've always loved your cute freckles that line your face and...." I covered my face with my hands. I couldn't stop here. I already started and I had to keep going. "...and I've always loved your silky brown hair and your cute smile and that laugh of yours...Literally every time I see your face I smile... Every time I see you, you appear 10x more handsome in my eyes. Every time I see you, my heart melts and I get butterflies in my stomach. Sometimes I feel like just grabbing your face and kissing you a million times but it's so frustrating that I can't and that you are so oblivious to this huge crush I have on you and it's so frustrating how I love you so much but I know you probably don't even feel the same way.... I hope you get this message because if I literally have to say 'I like you' then I'm going to die. Even though I just said it and I'm still here...." I blushed very hard and looked up at him.

He stared at me with a blank expression and his icy blue eyes were wide.

"Can you say something? Anything?" I asked. I was so desperate to find out if he liked me back or not.

He shook his head. "No..." He told me.

"What? What do you mean by tha-" I began but he put his hand under my chin and brought my face forward lifted my chin..then he leaned in and kissed me.

Fireworks exploded inside my body and I felt my cheeks grow hot. I wrapped my arms around his neck and got closer, still not breaking the kiss.

I pressed against him and my hands were entwined in his hair and he held me close to him.
I slowly pushed him into the bed so that he was laying on his back.
Our tongues were busy doing this erotic dance in our mouths.
We separated to catch our breaths and I looked into his clear eyes.
"I love you, Ethan." I said.
"I love you more." He told me. I smiled and kept kissing him and I felt his hands slowly drift down to my butt and start to pull off my shorts.

I let him. Until I heard my ringtone play in my pocket. The loud jingle blasted from my phone speakers as I separated from Ethan and got off him and picked up.
"Hello?" I asked.
"It's 10:00. You're lucky your father hasn't come home from work or you'd be in big trouble. What are you doing anyway?" I heard my mom's voice coming from the speaker.

"Oh...I was in the forest... with Ethan.." I said.
"Well, come home." She answered.

"Alrighty." I said before hanging up.

"You have to go home?" Ethan asked.
"Yeah.." I replied.
"I'll go home then too." He said.

I pulled up my shorts and we started walking to the door.
We rode on our bikes home and we stopped at my house. I began getting off my bike when Ethan did the same and kissed me on the cheek briefly before heading the other way to his house.

I felt my cheeks get hot and I placed hand where he had kissed me. I was so happy.
