Ever been in a relationship with a sweet guy?

I have, and still am. There just wasn't any passion, sure we love each other, but the passion wasn't there.

Like a balloon, you pop it and the air is gone, that's exactly how I feel about this relationship. Like someone pop it and let the passion escape.

"Baby girl, senior year starts today, get your tush down or I will throw a bucket of cold water." Mom yelled.

"No cold water!" I said while making a run to the bathroom. She actually did that once, I was late for the first day of junior year. I swear she's too much.

After my daily routine, I went out and was met by a bear hug.

"Morning, sissy." Claire said. She's thirteen years old, but she got used to calling me sissy. That was fine by me.

I felt a little hug on my leg, I looked down and saw, Matias. He's a year old, yeah, our parents got very busy. Unholy souls.

I picked him up and gave him a hug, he just giggled.

After breakfast, I said bye to my parents and siblings. Mom takes Claire to school since mom teaches at in the same school. Dad takes Matias to my grandparents house, then he goes to work at his hotel.

After school I either hang with my friends, or with aunt April. She's so awesome.

I made my way to my locker and was met by two arms wrapping around my waist. "Hey, beautiful." I turned around and gave him a kiss.

"Hey." I smiled.

"How about I take you out on a romantic date this Saturday, what do you say." He asked.

"I say, yes." I said, he gave me a kiss then went to his locker. I sighed.

"Shouldn't you be happy that you have a sweet boyfriend?" Camille said.

"I am, I love him." I smiled.

"But do you love love him, like this twit loves me?" Liam said while pointing at Camille.


"Just kidding, baby." He said before pulling her into a kiss.

These two have been together for two years, and they're so in love and passionate about each other, I envy that.

They walked hand in hand to their class. Joshua walked towards me and interlaced our fingers. I smiled.

Lunch came and we sat at our table, then queen B decided to annoy us.

"Joshua, I was wondering if you wanted to hang out after school." She said while caressing his face, he slapped it away.

Joshua was the kind of guy every girl wants, sweet, handsome, a gentleman, he also happens to be captain of the football team and he's very popular.

"I already have a girl and she happens to be my girlfriend so back off." He said, she stormed out.

"Thanks." I gave him a quick kiss.

"Welcome." He smiled. See, sweetest guy ever.

Classes were classes, once they were over, I went to Aunt April's apartment.

The door opened and I was met by Malia, aunt April's fiancee. I gave her a hug.

"There she is." My aunt said while pulling me into a hug.

"Here I am." I smiled.

"So, what-" I was cut by a hug again.

"Been a while." Sofia said. Sofia is Malia's sister. She's my age but goes to a different school.

"That, it has been, so how everything with you?" I said as we went to the couch to talk.

"Wonder what would happen if she knew Sofia has a crush on Joshua since she saw him." Malia said to my aunt.

"I'm sure she won't get mad." She replied to her.


"Because, baby. The only reason my niece is with him is cause of the routine, there's no love or passion." Aunt April said before pulling her into a kiss. 

"How about we get busy while they talk." Malia said while dragging my aunt away, I swear everyone around me is unholy.

"I'm meeting my friends for dinner at this new restaurant, want to go?"

"Of course, wouldn't miss it." Sofia said.

Later that day.

We made it to the restaurant, everyone said hi. We ordered. As we were waiting for our food, I noticed she talked more to Joshua than to any of us.


Food came and we started to eat. Food is life. After dinner we all went to the park and play. Yeah we were like little kids when we were at the park and since it was empty.

"So, did you guys noticed how much she drools over Joshua?" Camille said.

"Yup, she's crushing on him. How do you feel about that?" Liam said.

"I honestly don't know, but I'm not mad that's for sure." I replied as I looked at Joshua talking to Sofia.
