Erick's POV
Jazmin is the most beautiful girl I've ever seen.

While I was playing basketball with the boys I couldn't help but stare. She was talking to that one guy with the bandana. (Joel)

I saw them hug. I instantly felt pain I don't know why but I just did. It was something I've never felt before. I think I have feelings for Jazmin.

But I think she's going out with Joel because they're so close. I held back my tears. I'm not sure I why I want to cry. Maybe it's because Jazmin and Joel are together. 

I saw them walk towards the bathroom holding hands. I think Jazmin was crying. I wonder why...

Jazmin's POV
Joel walked me to the bathroom. Not all the way inside obviously. I washed my face. I looked at myself in the mirror. I look dead.

I didn't bring my small backpack so I can't fix my makeup.

I walked out the bathroom and Joel was talking to a girl. Oooo get her Joel, I thought. I stood there for a bit until he realized I was standing there.

"Oh ready to go?"


"Come on"

"Hold on"

I ran towards the girl who's smiled had faded.

"He's not my boyfriend he's free" I told her as I winked. I heard her giggle as I ran back to Joel.

"What did you tell her?"

"Nothinggg" I smirked.

"Jazminnnn tell me!" He whinned.

"I told her something...that you'll never find out!" I started running and Joel behind chasing after me.

"Jazmin you're gonna get it!!!"

"Try me!" I turned around while still running.

He finally caught up on me and hugged me and knocked me down on the grass.

I was laughing so hard I couldn't breath. From the corner of my eye I saw Erick looking this way. I didn't get nervous this time. I'm having to much fun.

"Jazmin he's looking this way."

"It's okay." I smiled.

"No crying?"

"No crying."

"That's good for you."

"Thanks" I smiled.

"So do you like Erick? Why did you get so nervous?"
"Yeah... I guess I like him. I don't know why I got so nervous. I usually don't get this nervous for a guy."

"Wow having anxiety must be hard."

"Yeah it is... you just have to get
used to it I guess"

After a while we finally started to talk.

"Hey, you wanna do something?"

"I don't know. Like what?"

"I don't know basketball?"

"With the boys?"

"If you want."


We walked over to the basketball court where the boys where playing.

"Hey guys we wanna play."

"Jazmin can be in my team" Erick instantly said.

I started to breath really fast cause I was trying to hold it in. Joel noticed and said, "no it's okay I'll be in your team."

"O-Okay" he said sounding a bit disappointed.

"Jazmin you're on my team" Chris said.

"Okay. What ever you say boo" I squeezed his cheek.

"OKAY we get it your guys are sibling goals! Let's play!" Said Richard.

"Fine" I rolled my eyes.


We played basketball until it started to get dark.

Me and Chris went home. We were chilling in the living room watching tv when we heard a knock at the door.

I decided to open it. It was Erick...



"I-It's for y-you."

Chris walked to the door.

"Aye what's up?"

"Can I stay over? My parents aren't home and I forgot my key."

Chris looked at me breathing heavily as if asking me for permission. I nodded.

"Yeah sure." He said.

"Thanks bro."

"Hey we should have a sleepover in Jazmin's room." Chris said.

"Why my room?"

"Have you seen my room ?"


"It's messy."

"Fine." I rolled my eyes.

We were sitting in my room talking. Or at least Erick and Christopher were talking.

I was so nervous. Erick. Erick was in my room. In my presence. I cant take it anymore. I broke down crying and ran out the door crying running to the porch.

"Stay here." I heard Chris say.

"JAZMIN!" I heard him yell.

"What." I said sobbing.

"What happened?"

"I can't take it anymore."

"Can't take what?"

"ERICK!" I broke down into more sobs.
"Want me to kick him out? Did he do something to you? Tell me." He said bringing me into a hug.

"He makes me so nervous."

"So that's why you broke down at the park too?"

"Dude you need to stop getting so nervous. I know it's hard but..."

"But what?"

"I don't know."

"Want me and him to go in my room?"

"Can you?"

"Yeah anything for you sis."

"Thanks bro." I pulled into a hug.


We walked upstairs together.

"Hey what happened?" Erick said as he walked closer to me.

I looked away. I couldn't look at him in the eyes.

"Erick we need to go to my room."


"Just cause okay? We need to leave Jazmin alone for a while."

"Oh, okay."

And they walked out into Chris's room...
