Dear jack,
You came today again. You have me my papers and it was the same awkwardness as yesterday. But I couldn't get my heart under control. It's like just the thought of you gets my head spinning and my palms sweaty. You make me nervous, and I don't like it. I've never had... feelings like that before. It scares me. I know you don't like me the same and just knowing that makes me shudder. But I can't let the feeling get to me, because I'm the end I'm going to be heart broken over you. Even if we were never together.

~Sincerely Zach

I put the pen down that I had been writing with. It took me a while to figure out what writing these letters actually does. It's weird but I've opened up over writing more than real life. Is that sad? No. Is it bad? Maybe.

"Zach!" I was brought out of my thoughts by Reese jumping on my bed.

"What?" I sat up from my laying position.

"It's Friday! Can we please play?" She begged sitting on my lap.

How could I say no. She was the cutest thing. She flashed me a tiny smile before pulling it her bottom lip. Her puppy dog eyes made my heart melt. I sighed with a slight eye roll before nodding my head.

"Yay! I love you Zachy" she was about to jump off he bed but I pulled her back.

"I want a kiss" I smiled down at her "I mean I am playing with you. I deserve one right?" I teased her.

"Oh come on. Coodies!" She squealed as she jumped off my bed and ran to the door. I lifted her in my arms before she could open the door.

"Please" It was my turn to stick out my bottom lip. She crossed her arms over her chest as she shook her head. "Come on! Not fair"

"You're a boy" she looked anywhere but my eyes.

"I'm your brother though. Please" she thought about it for a second before nodding her head. "Yay" I smiled widely at her.

She planted a quick kiss on my cheek. I thanked her and let her go out of my hands. She ran down stairs yelling stuff to mom. I sighed happily. As I looked up from the ground I caught eyes with Ryan.

"Hey Ryan" I chuckled lightly.

"Cute. But let's get to the point. Why aren't you going to school?"

I was taken back by the question. My 13 year old brother knows this. How? No where he ever figured out about this.

"What? I've been going"

Play dumb Zach. The best option is to play dumb.

"You know when someone calls you should delete the message if you don't want anyone knowing" my eyes widen.

Well shit.

"Did you—"

"Yes I deleted it. But why aren't you in school" I sighed out of relief. I sat down on my bed before continuing with the explanation.

"I got suspended. But why does it matter to you." I questioned looking at him.

"It doesn't. Just wondering" he walked out of room.

What? I'm so confused. I'm not usually that dumb. I left the message, what if mom or dad found out. I would be so dead right now. Perfect attendance is mandatory in my family.

We always had to be that picture perfect family that everyone was jealous of. Little did my parents know, I was everything but perfect.
