~~  “Today is the day John,” I said staring at the guy I’ve been dying to talk to for months.

          “I’m sorry, the day for what?”

          “John, I am going to get over my fear of talking to him and talk to Skylar.”

          “Oh.” He sighed deeply and his voice was shaky.

          “Hey, I know that tone of voice, what’s wrong?”

          “Nothing just, don’t worry about it.”

          “No, Johnny I am going to worry about it. You are my best friend I will always worry about you. It really bothers me when you don’t tell me what’s wrong. John I love you as a best-friend. Now tell me what’s wrong, please.”

          “Katie I’m fine.” I leaned in and hugged him. I could feel his arms tight around my waist. As a matter of fact I don’t think he was letting go of me. At this point I didn’t want him to. Something obviously wasn’t right.

          “If you ever need to talk John, I’m always here for you.” 

          “I know. Thank you Kate.” His arms got tighter around my waist. After a few seconds I could feel his hands running up and down my back.

          “Kate I don’t ever want to lose you as my friend. You are an amazing, beautiful, and talented girl. That’s coming from me as your best friend.” I couldn’t do anything or speak for that matter. I was in so much shock that I let go, grabbed my things, and left. When I looked back he was staring at me with his bright blue eyes filling up with water, like an ocean. He looked away and over at Skylar. I blinked and tears ran down his face faster than Niagara Falls. 

          I walked out of the room and sat down, leaning against the wall in the hallway.

(Back in the gym)

Skylar walked over to John and sat next to him.

          “Hey, my name is Skylar.” He put his hand out for John to shake.

          “Oh don’t worry I know who you are. I’m John.” Surprisingly, he shook his hand.

          “So that girl you were sitting with, is that your girlfriend?”

          “No she is just my best-friend, why?”

          “Well the past few months I’ve been scared to talk to her. I have also been crushing on her.”

          “Well I happen to know that she is crushing on you too,” he quickly covered his mouth, “I wasn’t supposed to tell you that.”

          “It’s alright. Well knowing you’re her best-friend and all, do you care if I ask her out and maybe kiss her?” John started to clench his fist.

          “Nope, not at all. Why would I care?”

          “Cool, and because she is your best-friend. You should always care about your best-friend. I will always care about mine, though my best-friend is a guy, I still care about him. He and I are like brothers for life. Well I’m going to go talk to her now.” He grabbed his stuff and headed for the door.
