I tried to talk to Kevin all day but he just shrugged me off or ignored me. I even tried to write him a note in math but he just crumpled it up instead of reading it. I don't understand why he's so mad.

It was lunch time now and I kept looking over at kevins table, he was laughing about something Devin told him.

He looked my way and all the happiness faded from his face I looked down at my table playing with my fingers.

"I know you like him lani." Ariella said.

I lift my head and look at her shaking my head quickly.

"I don't like Kevin pft what?" I said.

"You don't have to lie to me kehlani," Ari said rubbing my arm softly. "It's okay I guess, but if he hurts you I swear to God."

"He can't hurt me of he doesn't want to talk to me."

"What?" Ariella asked confused.

"He's been ignoring me since the date."

"What happened?"

"I pretended that I was mad at him and left. I don't know he followed me and was really mad, he told me to never leave him like that again. I don't get why he got so mad it was just a joke." I said shrugging my shoulders.

"Lani, Kevin doesn't when people just get up and leave." Ari said.

"What do you mean?" I asked.

"It's not my story to tell." She said raising her hands.

I was in science class now and the teacher decided to make a change in the seating chart so now I'm right beside Kevin, he didn't like that too much.

He kept scooting his desk farther and farther away from me, now he's just acting childish. I tore out a piece of paper and started to write.

Why are you so mad at me? What did I do?

I folded the paper and threw it on his desk. He rolled his eyes and opened it then picked up his pencil and started to write. He crumpled the paper and threw it back at me.

Just leave me alone kehlani.

I fold the paper back up and put it in my binder resting my head on the desk.

After class is over Kevin grabs his things and rushes out if the classroom. I needed to catch him at his locker before he got away.

I grab my stuff and follow after him. He was at his locker angrily putting his stuff into his backpack.

"Kevin!" I yell running towards him, he looked up at me and didn't say anything.

"Kevin." I say again catching my breath.

"Didn't I say to leave me alone?"

"Does it look like I care? Can we please talk?"

"Aren't we doing that right now?" He said looking me up and down.

"Don't get smart with me boy I can and will slap the shit out of you, now tell me why you're mad."

"You left me at the movies."

"I wasn't really mad Kevin it was just a joke, you don't need to be mad over something that small."

He sighed and shook his head as he brought his backpack strap over his shoulder. He looked so sad, I not like it when he's sad.

"You don't understand."

I cup his cheeks and look him I the ear for a while.

"Then help me understand Kevin."

"I used to date this girl named shayleen, she was my first love. We were at the movies one day like you and me were and during it she said she had to leave to use the bathroom and that she'll be right back. But she never did come back. When the movie was over I went looking for her and I caught her kissing some other guy, I confronted her but she just laughed in my face saying that she never really liked me. From that day any girl I "dated" I left them first or ended up hurting them. I did that to your friend jhene, I didn't mean it though. I'm such a terrible person kehlani."

I could see that his eyes were getting glossy, tears were going to pour over soon. I never see Kevin cry before.

"That's why I got mad at you, i thought you were going to leave like she did, I don't want you to leave lani."

I didn't say anything, just wrapped my arms around him and hugged him tightly.

"You're not going to lose me Kevin, I'm always here for you, no matter what."
