Fairy tales have been known to have a hero and a heroine who falls in love with a prince or a princess whom in which both of them would defy all the odds and obstacles that comes their way, thus resulting in an everlasting love. They showed us that love can last as long as both of them trusts each other to the utmost fullest. Fairy tales has showed us some ways on how to love but have they ever showed how to find the right person. Does he or she must come in a form of a princess or prince? Does he have to be the knight in a shining armor? Or perhaps a forgotten princess who lives in a tower with her mother? I think not. In this current world we live in, finding the right person for you is very difficult because everyone is too quick to judge and slow to get to know people. I took a different path than most people. I did not go out and hunt for females like a hungry wolf in the wild, instead I became patient and prayed for the right one to come. After a long time of waiting, I’m pretty sure God has given me the one. How do I know that? Well this lady has everything I’m looking for: appearance; family background; unique personality; and a beautiful soul. She is the type of lady that I can stare at forever and still think to myself how amazing she is and how glad I am that she picked me among all the other guys that goes after her. She is the person I can gladly introduce to my parents because I know they would be proud of me of finding such beauty. She is the type of person that makes me look forward for another day. I would love to go up to her and look her in the eyes then kiss her forehead. She is the type of person I can proudly walk around with and just watch other people stare at us thinking, “what a lucky guy”. I am indeed a lucky guy because I over-looked her all these years and at the end she still have the heart for me. She has so much flaws but she made me forget about them because of just how amazing she is. She really is. God must have spend a lot of time making her. Some guys would say they would be with their girl for a month or maybe more. My girl however, makes me want to say I want to be with her forever. I had to dig deep down in my mind to find the words to write this because simple words can’t explain what I feel. She made me see new things that I would have never seen if I had not met her. Every time she walks in front of me, I think to myself: “so this is what the back of an angel look like”. I get blinded when she stands elegantly as the wind blows her hair gracefully. She made my friends almost hate me because I cannot stop talking about her. She makes me have premature ventricular contraction. She changed me for the better. She made me do things that I would have never done with the old me without even saying anything. She is the Bonnie to my Clyde. She is the straw to my berry and I’m the hero and she is my sidekick. I’m her shoes and she’s my laces and she’s the heart that I spill on the pages. She makes me look like a peasant because her level of beauty scales way off the bar. She is the epitome of beautiful. She makes me happy.
It is really hard, especially for me, to let go especially now that having you in my life had become so essential. I had forgotten about that overly serious boy who used to scare people with his expression in the hall. I am very selective of the people who I decide to let in because I have a hard time trusting people. However, I let you in. Which led to some of the best times of my life so far. But the moment you walked out without a heads up, everything was ruined. I was weak again. Which makes me think that I had been weak this whole time. i guess now I can really see it. Anyway, the only choice I had was to crawl back into that serious boys’ role in order to protect myself. The door is now closed, I probably won’t let anyone get in this easily again. Shame on me for being so soft and vulnerable. But I guess it wasn’t all in vain. I believe that people come into other people’s lives for a reason. Although I think it is a bit early, I guess I was time for you to walk out of our lives. Maybe you’ll come back. Maybe you won’t. Probably not. Anyway, hopefully this new year brings me more good things instead of lemons.
Yesterday she was spring She was the trees that dance and the birds that sing She was vivid like the newly formed leaves And as fresh as the cold morning breeze Today, she turned into fall The shadow of the leaves, are now gone on the wall She signified life Now she signifies death She represented might But now fell victim to wealth She was a sapling that could have been a mighty tree Now i realize that was just a fantasy I thought she was a rare treasure Well she was, till she fell under the pressure She was part of the mind of peace And now she’s just a missing piece
Christmas break is done and everyone had to go back to school. Emma came in early. She’s staring outside the window and is just thinking about her confession to John.
“Is it a good thing that he didn’t hear it?” asked herself silently “Good thing he didn’t hear what?” asked Doug from behind “What?! Nothing!” says Emma in surprise “Why’re you blushing?” asked Doug “No I’m not! Mind your own business!” screamed Emma “Did you confess your love to someone?” he said jokingly “No!” replied Emma
John came in and heard them arguing
“What’re you guys talking about?” asked John “Oh we were just talking about Emma confessi-” says Doug but Emma interrupted by smacking him “Hmm okay” says John and sat
Doug looked at Emma while he rubbed his head after being smacked. He then tried to whisper something to Emma
“Is it John?” whispered Doug
Emma couldn’t replied. She was just staring at her desk and she was blushing. Her face is all red. John noticed this.
“Emma are you okay?” asked John “Yeah I’m fine” she replied without looking at him
Mila came in and John saw her. He blushed slightly.
“Good morning guys” says Emma “Hey!” replied Doug “Hey Emma” replied John
They talked for awhile then their teacher came.
“You guys have a test tomorrow so study” says the teacher
After hearing this, John smacked his face.
“I’m screwed” says John to himself
After the class ended, John faced Doug
“I’m going to fail” says John “It’s okay, Emma could tutor you” says Doug “No way!” screamed Emma while blushing “That’s cold” says John “If you don’t mind, I could tutor you” says Mila
This caught Emma’s attention
“Rea- really? Thank you!” says John
"Okay I’ll meet you in the library after school" says Mila with a smile
Their next teacher came in. They all faced him.
“That’s too bad Emma” says Doug silently so that only Emma could hear
Emma didn’t say anything. No one knew what was going in her head. After class, lunch came.
“John should we head out to the library?” asked Mila “Yeah” he replied “I’ll see you guys later” says John to Emma and Doug “Okay, make sure you study! Not hit on Mila” Doug replied
Mila blushed when she heard this.
“Shut up!” screamed John
John and Emma proceeded to the library.
“Sucks for you Emma” says Doug after John and Mila left “Shut up!” screamed Emma then proceeded to smack him
Meanwhile at the library, Mila and John went to a vacant table.
“Hold on I need to get the book on the shelf so we can study” says Mila “Okay sure” he replied
Mila walked to aisle to look for the book. She then found it but it was too high. She looked for a stool.
“Why is she taking so long” says John to himself “I better check” he continued
He walked to the aisle where Mila went. He saw her trying to reach the book while on a stool.
“Hey Mi-” says John
Mila screamed before he even finished his sentence. She was surprised and started falling off the stool. John tried to catch her but he didn’t have his balance. He fell on the floor on his back and Mila fell on top of him. John is now on the floor and Mila is on top of him. He was blushing and so was she. They were looking each other in the eye. Emma came out of nowhere and saw them.
“Hey Jo-” says Emma but couldn’t finish her sentence because of what she saw. To be continued
"Is this a bad time to come over?" asked John "No.. I was actually going to go to your house" replied Emma "Really? Why?" asked John "Anyways come in first" says Emma
John went in and they headed to the living room
"Why were you going to my house? asked John "Well.. I just wanted to give you a present for christmas" says Emma "Oh.. but why are you all dressed up?" asked John "Shut up! Can’t I dress up nicely?!" screamed Emma while blushing "Okay geez" says John
Emma went to the kitchen. She went back to the living room with juice for John.
"So why did you come here?" asked Emma as she hands the juice "I was going to give this gift" says John as he hands the necklace "Oh my God! I’ve always wanted this! Thank you!" screamed Emma then proceeded to hug John "Okay calm down" says John "I hope you like my gift for you" says Emma
went to get her purse that she left in the kitchen. When she got back with the purse, she opened it to get the gift
"Here" says Emma as she hands her gift "Gloves?" says John "You don’t like it?" asked Emma "Yes I do!, I actually need one" says John "How’d you know?" John continued "I never saw you wear one so I thought you didn’t have one" says Emma "Ahh, thank you" replied John "This gloves looks familiar" continued John "I got it at the store in the city" she replied "Oh so you were the familiar voice that I heard" says John "What?" asked Emma "Nevermind" he replied "Hey, since you’re here, want to watch a movie with me?" asked Emma "Sure, I have nothing to do anyways" he replied "Okay hold on, I’m going to change, these clothes are uncomfortable" says Emma
She went upstairs to her room. She was smiling along the way. John was just
waiting for her down in the leaving room then he heard a scream. He rushed upstairs and opened her door
"What’s wrong?!" he screamed
She was almost naked. Emma realized John was there and threw a pillow at him
"Get out you pervert!" screamed Emma
He got out and he was blushing
"I’m sorry! You just screamed and I thought something happened" says John "There’s… There’s a cockroach!" says Emma fearfully "I’m going to go in and kill it okay? I’m not going to look" says John while blushing
She paused for a second
"Okay.." says Emma
John went in and killed it. After killing it, he turned around unconsciously.
"There you go" says John "Pervert!" screamed Emma as she throws another pillow
John ran away.
"I’m sorry!" says
After all the commotion, Emma went downstairs feeling embarrassed. She is standing next to the stairs
"You pervert.." she says quietly "I said I’m sorry, besides there’s nothing to see anyways" he replied "What?! You’re soo mean.." she says sadly
John looked at her
"Well sorry I’m not Mila! I don’t have big boobs like her" said Emma "I was kidding.." says John
Emma didn’t say anything. She was just standing and staring at the floor. John got up and grab her hand and pushed her towards him and hugged her
"You have something in you that Mila doesn’t have. I can’t imagine someone else having it other than you" says John
When Emma heard this, she hugged him and smiled.
"Anyways let’s watch the movie" asked Emma while smiling "Sure" he replied
They spent the whole afternoon watching the movie. After watching, John is ready to leave. He got out the door
"Today was fun, ill see you next time" says John as he turns around to leave
"John! I lik—" screamed Emma but didn’t want to finish her sentence
John turned around
"What?" he asked "Nevermind, be careful on the way" says Emma while smiling and waving goodbye
I’ve always wondered… How am I supposed to ask questions about someone who I just met, without sounding like a stalker? Most people would say that I have hidden reasons, but I don’t. The society we live in is such a weird and unstable environment that no one trusts or is trusted anymore. No matter how many times I claim that my intentions are good, some people will not believe me. To tell the truth, I am ok with that reality because I cannot please everyone. If God can’t do it, then neither can I. At the end of the day, I am just a guy trying to get to know someone who may or may not be interested in me. Hopefully I am not too boring for her.
"Hey guys I want to introduce the new student" says their elementary school teacher “Ohhhhh” says the students “Her name is Emma, she just moved here so be good to her okay?” says the teacher “Ohkayyy” says the students “She’s soo cute” says a student
“You can sit next to John” says the teacher
She looked at John and walked to her sit
“Hey I’m John” says John “Hey I’m Emma” she says awkwardly “I like your bear bag” says John
Emma smiled at him
After the flashback, he looked at John
“Hey John, do you remember when you said you liked my bear bag back when we were little?” asked Emma “Yeah.. do you still have it?” asked John “No, I lost it” says Emma sadly “That’s too bad” says John while laughing “Shut up! That was my favorite bag! I cried the whole night after I lost it ya know” says Emma while John is still laughing Mila was staring at John while he’s laughing. Doug noticed Mila.
“So Mila, do you like someone?” says Doug
She started blushing after hearing the question “Well..” She murmured
John’s mom came in the room.
“Here’s some juice for you guys” she interrupted “Thanks” says all of them
“Sooo who is it?” continued Doug
She was quiet and looking at the floor
“Stop it Doug!” says John “You don’t have to answer if you don’t want to” says John to Mila with a smile “Thanks” replied Mila with a gentle smile
John blushed after he saw her smile
They spent the entire afternoon talking and playing games
“Bye miss Raven” says Emma, Doug and Mila “See you later John” says Doug “Yeah see yea” replied John
A few days has passed. It’s christmas morning. Doug called John.
“Yo John what’re you doing today” asked Doug “I don’t know yet” he replied “Are you gonna ask Mila out?!” screamed Doug “What?! No!” replied John “Really? Did you buy her a gift atleast?” asked Doug “Well I didn’t know what she liked..” he replied “You suck! Anyways I gotta go, I’ll talk to you later” says Doug “Okay” replied John
When John hang up, he saw the gift he bought for Emma.
“Well I better give this to Emma” he says to himself
He got ready and headed out. On the way to Emma’s house, he was thinking about Mila.
“I forgot to ask her what she liked when she came over..” he says to himself
He passed by the river that they used to play at when they were young. He stopped for a bit and just stared at the water. He then went on his to Emma’s. When he got there, he rang the bell. A few seconds later, Emma opened the door. John started blushing. She was all dressed up. She looked even prettier back when she went to date with John. She looks like she’s about to go on a date
“Are you going somewhere?” asked John “Yeah…” she replied
John woke up on a cold morning. He went to his window and looked at the sky
“A gift huh” says John
He thought about what Doug said. He was reluctant about getting Mila a gift at first but in the end, he decided to try to get her one. He got ready to go to the city.
He was on the way to the station.
“I should ask Emma to go with me” says John to himself
He then called Emma
“Emma do you want to go with me to the city?” says John “Sorry I can’t, I’m busy today” she replied “Oh okay it’s fine” says John
He got to the train station. During his trip, he was thinking in his mind if he really should get her a gift. He thought that she might think that he’s trying to be persistent towards her. He thought about it the whole time during the train ride. He got to the city and started walking. He saw couples holding hands. He felt kind of jealous. He started going to stores.
“Excuse me do you need help?” says the store worker “What’s a good gift for a girl?” he asked “A christmas present eh? How bout this scarf?” said the worker “Hmmmm” he wondered
The worker kept suggesting things but he couldn’t decide
“Umm actually, I’ll just look around” says John “Ok sure just ask me if you need help” says the worker “Thanks” he replied
He walked around the store to look at stuff.
“Now that I think about it, I don’t really know what Mila wants…” he says to himself
He kept looking around. In the background, he heard the worker talk to a customer
“Do you need help?” says the worker “Sure” says the customer
When he heard that, he thought the voice sounded familiar. He didn’t do anything about it though and just left the store to look for another.
He walked in a lot of different stores but he still couldn’t find anything. It was getting dark so he decided to go home. On the way to the station, he saw a familiar store. It was the store that he and Emma went to. He decided to go in.
He walked around and saw the bear necklace Emma wanted.
“Excuse me, can I get this one” says John to the worker “Sure” the worker replied
He couldn’t find anything for Mila so he just decided to get one for Emma
It’s now monday and it’s a week before Christmas. Everyone is in the room as always.
“Hey do you guys want to come over later since it’s the start of Christmas break tomorrow??” asked John “Yeah sure!” says Emma “Why so random?” asked Doug “Well my mom asked why you guys haven’t come over in awhile” replied John “Oh yeah that’s true” added Doug
Emma looked at Mila.
“Hey Mila you should come with us” says Emma “I’d love to! only if it’s fine with John” she replied “Yeah no problem” says John
After school, they gathered in front of the school gate. They started walking to John’s house
“Mila why are you so quiet?” asked Doug “Its my first time going to a guy’s house so I’m nervous” she replied “Don’t worry his mom is cool!” says Doug “Okay” she replied with a smile
After walking and talking, they finally got to his house.
“Hi miss Raven!!” screamed Emma “Hey Emma! How have you been?!” she replied “I’ve been good!” says Emma “You’re still pretty as ever” she replied “Okay okay, stop lying to her,mom” interrupted John “What’s that suppose to mean?!” Screamed Emma “Nothing. Anyways we’re going upstairs” replied John “Okay, I’m coming” says Emma
When they got to his room, Doug and Emma felt nostalgia. It reminds them of their childhood. Emma noticed the picture frame on John’s desk. It was a picture of them when they were kids
In the picture, Emma was standing in the middle holding a teddy bear while Doug’s arms were around her head. John was standing next to Emma doing a peace sign.
After seeing the picture, Emma started having a flashback of when they were kids. To be continued.
"Well I don’t hate him.. He’s really nice and all" replied Mila
John saw them. He walked towards them.
“So you like him” says Emma “What?! No!” says Mila
She then just realized John was in front of them.
“No it’s not like tha-” before Mila finished her sentence, John interrupted. “It’s okay” says John with a gentle smile “Hey I’m going to go ahead, class is about to start” says John
John started walking away. His smile was gone. He thought about it. He told himself that there was nothing to worry about because they were never more than friends.
A few weeks passed. Everything seems to be the way it is, usual laughs and fun. It’s a few weeks before Christmas.
It’s morning and everyone was in class. They were talking, laughing and joking around.
“Yo it’s really cold today” says Doug “I know! I was freezing this morning” replied John
As they were talking, the fire alarm rang.
“Oh I forgot they said they were having a fire drill today” says Doug
Everyone went outside. It was really cold and everyone were shivering. John saw Emma standing near the flag pole.
“Emma are you crazy?! Where’s your jacket?!” says John “I left it in my locker” she replied “Here use mine” says John as he hands his jacket “What about you?” she replied “I’m fine, don’t worry about me” says John
Emma felt warm after she wore his jacket but she felt bad for him. He was shivering with only a shirt on. With this in mind, she went on and hugged him.
“You might get sick” says Emma while hugging him “Yeah.. Thanks” replies John “No, thank you” says Emma
On the other hand, Mila was looking for John. When she finally found him, she saw him and Emma hugging. She was going to talk but she didn’t want to bother. She felt sad seeing this. Doug came around and saw Mila
“What’re you doing?” he asked “Oh nothing just walking around” she replied
Doug saw Emma and John.
“Ohhh” says Doug while he grins “Want to walk around with me?” he continued. “Sure” she replied
The fire drill was finally over so they all went back in.
“Yo John” says Doug “Yeah?” John replied “Come over my house this saturday, we haven’t hanged out for awhile” “Yeah sure he replied”
The week went by really fast. John is getting ready to go to Doug.
“Mom I’m going to Doug’s” says John “Okay. Tell him and Emma to come over sometime” says his mom “Sure” John replied
He got to Doug’s house. He realized that he hasn’t been there in awhile.
“You’re still a neat freak huh” says John “Yeah I know” replied Doug
"So you know.. Christmas is coming soon.. Are you going to ask Mila out?" Doug continues “What?! No.. We’re just friends” replied John “Is that so?” says Doug with a creepy smile “What’s with that creepy smile?!” he screamed
Doug went to his closet to look for his game console
“At least buy her a gift” says Doug while digging in the closet.
John thought about what he said. They spent the whole saturday playing games and talking about everything.
Waking up in the morning, I wish it wasn’t morning. I wanted to keep sleeping, but as they say: ” you gotta do what you gotta do” so I got out of bed. It’s like this every morning, although I have been doing this for about 4 years, I am still not used to it. To me, sleep is sacred; it’s that moment when no one nor anything is supposed to interrupt that. I don’t like the fact that no one besides me thinks that way. I hate to be bothered, so not to give anyone the opportunity to do so, I try to be understanding. My father always said ” don’t do to others what you would not like others to do to you”. A lot of us have this particular problem, we want to be treated with respect but do not make the effort to respect others. To be brief, respect is important, if you don’t give it, you’ll never get it.
The weekend passed by really quick. It’s monday and everyone’s back.
John is walking to his seat and looked at Mila. Mila is looking away to avoid eye contact
"Good morning Emma" says John as he take his seat "Good morning!" she replied
The first half of the day passed. John was thinking of ways to make up with Mila. He couldn’t focus in class.
The lunch bell rang.
"Here John" says Emma as she hands him her notes "What’s this for he asked" it’s the homework for tonight "Oh crap! I wasn’t paying attention! thanks Emma" he replied "What’s wrong?" she asked "I was thinking on how I could make up with Emma" he replied "Just man up and tell her what you want to say" says Emma as he slapped his back "You’re right" John replied
He rushed out the classroom to look for her. He kept looking but couldn’t find her. He was about to give up then he went outside. He as Mila take her seat
"So that’s why you’re in a good mood" says Doug and Emma "Yea, we made up" replied John
A few weeks has gone by. Emma noticed that John and Mila are closer than before. Lunch came and Emma approached Mila
"Hey Mila, do you like John?" asked Emma "Wha..what?" says Mila in surprised as she started to blush "Do you?" asked Emma curiously To be continued
You’re the bestest, so don’t change anything cause you’re awesome. I love yo face, but I think you already know that. I like how you get mad every time someone or I try to bring myself down. I think one of your best qualities is your ability to accept people, without judging them. You always see good in people no matter who they are. You’re so positive, you even made a negative and uptight person like me come out of my shell and embrace who I am. I was able to become more Confident as a person because you believed in me. God has really blessed me with a good friend like you, and I thank him for it.
Disappointment is part of life, a sad part of it though. Especially when you’re disappointed by someone you think you know. How the fuck are you gonna stand there and act like you don’t know? I thought I knew you, but I guess it’s not true. The same person who told me”yo, I got you”, is the same who’s gonna say “forget you!”; Especially when I need you. I’m a fool for having trusted you. It’s not gonna work twice though, because now i’m on my toes, and you are all alone. Tell me how you feel Now that you’re tasting a sample of your own sweet, is it that sweet? And now, you’re looking at me? You’re gonna learn today.
After riding the train to the city, they started walking in the city.
"What’s wrong? You’ve been really quiet ever since we went on the train" asked Emma "Well.." he he said quietly
Emma started hopping ahead. Emma is now ahead of John. John was looking at the pavement as he walked.
"Is it about Mila?" asked Emma "Noo… Its just that.. You look really pretty today" he replied while still looking at the pavement
Emma stopped walking upon hearing this. John noticed that she stopped. He also stopped and looked at her. She turned around and faced him.
"Thank you" says Emma with a great smile on her face. John smiled at her and proceeded to walk
As they were walking, Emma stopped and stared inside the shop through the glass. John looked at her and noticed her face while she looked at shop.
"Let’s go in" he said while smiling "Really? Yayy!" she replied
"Look at this!! This bear is soooo cute” says Emma
"You still like bears" he asked "Something wrong with that?!" she says feeling embarrassed.
They spent the whole day walking and checking stores around the city. Its already dark and time for they to go home. They were on the way to the train station.
"Today was fun" says Emma happily "Yeah, I haven’t gone out like this in awhile" he replied
He saw a street vendor that sells hot chocolate
"Do you want some hot chocolate?" he asked "Yeah, sure" she replied "Ok, wait here" says John
John went to the vendor and asked for some hot chocolate. Moments later, he heard Emma scream
"Give me my purse back!" she screamed as she chases after him
The thief was going in Johns direction. When the thief got close to him, he punched him. The thief fell on the ground after he punched him. Emma caught up with him.
"Get lost" says John to the thief
The thief ran. Emma looked at John in awe and started blushing. She has never seen him act like that. Its the first time she saw him as a real man.
"Are you okay?" he asked as he hands the purse "Yeah.. Thank you" she replied
They went on and are now in the train.
"Why are you still smiling after what just happened?" asks John "I’m just happy" says Emma "I thought you’d be scared" says John "Not at all! I know you’re gonna protect me" says Emma as she wrap her hands around his arms and leaned her head on his shoulder. "I’m tired" she continued "Go sleep, Ill wake you up when we get there" John replied "Okay" says Emma
Emma fell asleep on his shoulder while her arms wrapped around his. The train went on to their destination. To be continued
See that pale skinned brunette? She ruined her life smoking cigarettes Pictures in Facebook All it takes is one look More than enough people like the picture They deserve a life lesson of lecture These are the people who don’t usually succeed And they’re the same people who say they’re not freed What is drug abuse going to do with you? Temporary happiness shouldn’t be what to do Freedom of happiness should be the one, out of the two Your mind is free You’re welcome to see Don’t be afraid to search Imagine your life like the deep blue sea Purification, nature, and bright You are natural, born-free, and you represent the light. - Jeremy
He caught Mila looking at him but she immediately looked away. He felt very awkward for the rest of the class. He wanted to get out of the class to avoid the awkwardness. Then lunch came and he rushed out and Emma and Doug followed.
"Mila, I like you~" says Doug and Emma trying to make fun of him "Shut up! You guys are so annoying" he burst out "That was really manly of you" says Doug then Emma started laughing out loud "Geez"
As they were walking, John saw Mila across the hallway. Mila didn’t seem to notice him. He was going to scream his name but she turned left. John paused for a second then started running after her.
"Hey John! What’s the rush?!" screamed Doug
He didn’t reply and kept running. When he turned left, he screamed Mila’s name
"Mila! Wait!" he screamed "What’s up John?" she said awkwardly "About earlier today…" before John could even finish his sentence, Mila said "Sorry I gotta go" then she started running
By the time Doug and Emma caught up with John, Mila was gone. "What happened?" asks Emma "Oh nothing" John replied "Was the Mila" asks Doug "yea…. Anyways wanna go to the cafeteria to get lunch? I’ve been wanting to try the new bread that they sell" he replied as he tries to cover his sadness with a smile "Uhh.. Sure" Doug replied
The day went on. He could not talk to her after what happened. The next day came. He was still upset about yesterday but he decided to try not worrying about it. He got ready and headed to the station. There he saw Emma standing. He then walked
"Emma did you wait long?" asked John. Emma turned around. John blushed when he saw her because he has never seen her dress up so beautiful. "No at all" she replied with a pretty smile on her face "Should we go?" she continued "Yea.." he replied while still blushing To be coninued
Meanwhile, John and Mila just finished shopping. "Hey John thanks for everything you’ve done today" says Mila with a gentle smile "Just ask me if you need help anything" he replied while blushing
They both head home. John could not believe he just went on what he considered a “date” with Mila. He kept thinking about it all night and couldn’t sleep. He’s never been so happy
The next morning came. It’s friday and everyone is excited to go home.
The classroom was loud and in chaos. John came in with a sleepy looking face. His eyebags are bigger than usual. He proceeded to sit in his seat
"Yo you look terrible" says Doug "I couldn’t sleep last night at all" he replied "What happened?" asks Doug "Well Mila and I we-" *Emma smacked his head before he could finish what he was saying "What was that for?!" says John "I can’t believe you made me wait that long yesterday!" says Emma "Oh no I forgot! I’m sorry! Really!” he replied with sadness written all over his face
"Hmph" mumbled Emma looking away with her hands crossed "Is there anything I could do to make it up?" asked John "Well… Let’s go on a date tomorrow" she said enthusiastically "Uhm sure I’m free" he replied "Let’s meet in front of the station at 10 then" she said while smiling
The day went on and John felt sleepier. On 7th period, he fell asleep. He was dreaming about Mila. He had this luscious face while sleeping. While dreaming… He slowly hears “john.. John.. JOHN…”
"John wake up!" Screamed his teacher
He stood up in surprised and screamed “Mila I like you!”
It took him a second to realize he just confessed. His classmates were surprised then they proceeded in loud laughter
"It’s not like tha-" he looked at Mila and didn’t even finish what he’s saying. To be continued
I accept criticism, I believe it is crucial to one’s growth toward maturity. On the other hand, being made fun of is never something I appreciated. I never found it funny, even when the situation was hilarious. That’s why I always try to consider what someone else would be feeling at certain moments. People think that I am being too nice. I just wouldn’t like to be in the same situation as that other person. Now I remember why they are the only people I always stay quiet around. I love them, but I have and always will hate that silly side of them. I don’t understand why everyone think they can pushing my buttons and nothing will happen. We’ll all be surprised one day.
Did someone ever catch your attention at the most random place? For example, while walking with your friends or sitting in a coffee shop? Sometimes I wonder about them, about what kind of person they are or what their life is like. For me they’re mostly girls. About one particular girl I often wonder: what if I got to know her? What if we became intimate, and were into each other? What if she was the type to over-think things and ask a lot of questions, like me? What if she had the same opinion as me about life, and liked to write like me? What if she liked sport and worked out a little bit to keep her shape? What if her favorite snack was chocolate, just like me? We would be the perfect couple, the perfect match for each other. We would never fight or even have to argue because she would be the one and I would be forever happy; in heaven on earth. Yeah, Maybe… But probably not. I would never know that, unless I stop thinking so much, walk up to her and tell that I’m interested. To be straight-forward, I’d like to say that life is not meant to be observed but lived; if we spend less time talking and more time actually “walking the walk”, we’d be satisfied with what we have and stop wondering. Peace (of mind).
"That girl you were talking about on the way to the city?" asked Emma “Yeah” replied John “Ohh why don’t you talk to her then” says Emma “Why should I?!” he replied with a hint of blushing in his face “You’re as shy with girls as ever” says Emma “Shut up!” he replied
The next monday came and students are talking to their new friends.
“Yo John are you free later after school?” asked Emma “Yeah I have nothing to do” replied John “Yay! I’ll see you after school then” says Emma happily “Alright then” John replied smiling
Mila came in and went to her seat.
“Good morning John” she said gently “Uh Good morning Mila” replied John awkwardly.
After the first half of day finished, lunch is here. Students walking around are as loud as always. Mila was walking through the cafeteria while holding tray with her food in it. As she walked around, she saw John sitting alone
“Hey John, do you mind if I sit with you?” asked Mila “No, not at all” he replied “Why are you sitting alone?” she asked “My friends have to do some research in the library” he replied “Ohh Emma and Doug right?” she asked enthusiastically “Yea.. That’s them” replied awkwardly”
They both took a bite at their food.
“You’re a really nice guy John” she said while smiling “Wha..what? What made you say that?” he replied as his cheeks turned bright red. “You’re just different” she said
He didn’t know what to say after she said that.
“Hey can you help me buy something at this store after school? I’m not really familiar with this place yet so I if you don-” “Sure!” John replied happily before Mila finished her question “Really? Thank you” Mila replied happily “I gotta go to my class, see you later John” she continued “Sure” John replied
John felt a certain happiness that he had not experience before. His face shows his excitement towards the end of the school day. The last bell rang and the students started to head home
On the way to the school gate, Emma saw Mila.
“Hey Mila!” screamed Emma “Hi Emma” Mila replied “Where are you hea- oh crap! I forgot something in the classroom, ill talk to you later! says Emma in a loud manner while running back into the building “Okay” Mila replied “I wonder what she forgot” she asked herself
She kept walking and saw John waiting in front of the gate
“Hey John! Sorry did I make you wait?” says Mila in a sorry tone “No no I just got here” he said while blushing “Great! Should we go now then?” she asked “Yea let’s go” he replied
They went off on the way to the store while meanwhile..
“John is still not here?” Emma asked herself. “I think I’m too early” she continued
She kept waiting for John near the school gate. Everyone has left and the sun is almost gone from the night sky.
“Maybe he didn’t want go…” she asked herself on a low tone “Nah he just prolly forgot! she continued cheerfully
She kept waiting but in the end, she decided to go home. It was getting too dark to say in school. To be continued.
It was a girl with long black hair with a pretty, yet fierce looking face. Everyone was astounded by her beauty.
"Hi, what’s your name?" asked ms Noel in a really friendly manner. "My name is Mila, nice to meet you guys" she replied with a short smile. "You can go ahead and sit on the chair next to John" says ms Noel
Upon hearing that, John’s heartbeat grew faster.
"Hi, nice to meet you" says Mila to John "Heee… Heyy. umm nice to meet you too" replied John awkwardly. Emma noticed that John was acting weird ever since the new girl came in.
"Hey John you like the new girl dontcha?" asked emma in almost a screaming way Hearing that, John spitted out the bread he was eating due to his surprise. "You’re wrong!" Replied John "Hahah! John you fall for girls easily! Said Doug while laughing"
*girls and boys passed by & some background chatter*
John stared out the window and paused. “She’s the girl I saw back then on the swing..” Says John on a low tone. To be continued
It’s been a week since that day. He was still curious about that girl but he decided to forget about it since he thought he would never see her again. Summer has passed and it’s time to go to school again.
"Good morning miss Raven" greeted Emma. "You’re as lively as ever" responed John’s mom with a gentle smile. She then head to the kitchen to finish cleaning the table "Yoo John hurry up, we’re gonna be late" screamed Doug. Emma and Doug were just talking while waiting for John. A few moments later John came downstairs rushing. "Sorry bout that guys" he said. "Geez you’re late as always" responded Emma.
John’s mom got out to the kitchen to bid them goodbye. “Hey guys take care of John, you know how shy he is when it comes to girls” she said jokingly. “Mom you’re embarrassing me!” says John All of them except John busted out in laughter.
They headed to school and got their schedule. “Ohh we’re all in the same class again!” says Emma happily “Looks like it’s gonna be afun year” says Doug loudly “*siigh* another year with the monkey and gorilla..” says John on a low voice. “Whatcha call me?!” Screamed Emma and Doug and proceeded to wrestle him “Ahhh! Ouch!! I’m kidding!” screamed John.
It’s the same routine.John always make fun of them but he knows he needs them. They all got to the class and it was full of noise. They sat to their seat. Emma sat to the side near the windows. John was on her right while Doug was behind her.
The teacher came in and said “Good morning class” with a big smile on her face. “Good morning miss Noel!” the class replied happily. Miss Noel stood near the door. “I have an announcement” she said.
The students got quiet and gave their attention to her. “Today we have a new transfer student” she announced. The class were curious. Some asked if she’s pretty, some asked if its a handsome guy.
When the noise subsided, miss Noel opened the door. As the new student slowly walked into the room, John got all quiet and started to blush while he looked at the new student with a hint of familiarity. To be continued.
Be creative and sound philosophical
stay awake and be punctual
Work hard and try not to be stressed
Try not to be impressed
Try not to fall in love
Enjoy my favorite sport
Not forget everyone else
Remember where I came from
Fill out and hand in important forms
Not be greedy
But be a little bit greedy
Baby I love you, you’re so special to me. I care a lot about you. You mean a lot to me. I love you.. Not because of how beautiful you look, but because of how beautiful you are. You don’t need to be insecure about anything, because no matter what you wear, no matter what you say, and no matter what you do I will still love you. I love you because you are my best friend, and an amazing lover- the girl of my dreams. Wait! No, not the girl of my dreams; I will never be as creative to imagine a person as beautiful as you. You exceeded my expectations. This might sound cliche but when I see you it feels like I just won the lottery. You make me feel so happy, but yet so sad, because I could never call you mine.
*dingdong* “John! Emma and Doug are here!” screamed John’s mom. “Coming!” says John. John rushed downstairs with his shirt left unbuttoned. “You guys are too early” says John quietly. “The earlier, the better” says Emma with a big smile on her face. “Yea come on dude” says Doug while he tries to give him a head lock.
They went outside the house and John’s mom told them goodbye and take care. “Bye mom!” Says John while the others wave goodbye.
They started walking on the road that they usually take. John and Doug are both 12 years old and Emma was a year younger. John is a laid back kid and Doug is an out going loud guy. Emma is outgoing and acts like a guy. They just do what other kids do. They just play and go on adventures. There’s plenty of things to do on the country side after all.
"So where are going today?" Asked John. "We’re going to the new candy shop that opened in the city" says Emma. "We gotta enjoy the rest of the summer so let’s do everything we could now!" says Doug "Yeah, you’re right" says John. "New store here we come!!!" Screamed Emma on the top of her lungs. "Emma quiet down!" Says John nervously. "Who cares?" Says Emma with a gentle smile on her face. John just smiled at her.
As they were walking, they passed by a park. John came to a halt because he saw a figure sitting on the swing. It was a girl with long hair. John couldn’t see her well but he noticed the gentleness of her expression as the wind blew her hair. Emma noticed that John have stopped. “John! We’re gonna leave you behind!” screamed Emma. “I’m coming” says John while still trying to figure out who the beautiful girl was. To be continued. -jasper
How do friends become lovers? When does one reAlizes that they can’t live without the other? Someone once told me that a good friendship between a boy and a girl is the best foundation for a relationship. I agree with it, but I also wonder why it isn’t a known fact among us. I mean, isn’t it obvious enough? I’ve always wondered why people always preferred to take the easy route; they rather stay in the same situation forever because of fear. What happened to the power of love? I thought love gave wings, not Redbull, but LOVE! I believe it is better to take the shot than wonder whether or not it should be taken. But who am I to judge? I am just a high school student sharing my opinion. I wish you all to find true love. I you haven’t found it yet, but I sure hope I do.
Ps: don’t be afraid to love. Be afraid not to be able to, because everyone has the potential to be an amazing lover.
"Lonry! Time to wake up!" screamed my mom. I heard it the first but I decided to ignore it and kept on laying on the bed. "Lonry! Wake up! Breakfast is ready!" Screamed my mom. It was getting pretty late. I came downstairs as I put on a blue shirt. While sitting on the sofa, I saw my mom lighting up a candle. "Mom, why are you lighting up a candle" I said in curiousity. "That’s a good one" she said while she go back upstairs. I got out of the house to get ready to walk to school. The sky shows nothing but depressing darkness and tiny snow flakes falling of the sky. It almost felt like it was crying. I started walking down the usual road I take in the morning. While waiting at the stoplight, I saw little girl crying while hugging her mom. "Mommy I don’t want you to go! I’m going to be lonely without you!" She said as she tries to wipe off her tears. I could almost see myself in her place. I’ve always felt lonely. In school they make fun of me by calling me "lonely". I guess that’s why I get for being a japanese kid. These americans treat me as if I don’t exist. I feel a little happy that some kids make fun of me because it feels like that I actually exist. I’ve been a lonely kid for a long time. My parents brought me here 10 years ago from Japan. I didn’t know anybody except one person. I kept walking and just kept looking at the trees as they sway around. My mom sent me a text telling me to have fun at school. She only text me that once a year and she does it on the same date. I never really thought about it. I thought it was just a hobby. As I kept walking, I noticed a very familiar road. I decided to take off some time to have a look at it. While walking, I saw things as if I’ve seen them before. From fences to trees, everything gave me a familiar scent. I kept walking until I came upon a busy intersection. Right then, in that moment everything made sense. The memories I’ve buried deep in my mind resurfaced. The noise of the cars grew vivid. I’m now looking at something that happened ten years ago. I saw a boy crying out loud as she hold a girl full of blood in his arms. "I’m not gonna make fun of you again! So please… live" the girl slowly reached her hands to the boys face while crying. She said, "It’s okay… I will always watch over you… I love you.. Lonry" as her hands slowly dropped. It grew silent, the trees stopped moving and snow came down harder. I cried and fell on my knees while saying her name, my first love.
everybodys praising. everyone’s worshipping then i saw you but why’d you look away..
Did you forget? or was there nothing to remember…
it’s really you, standing right in front of me, should i sit next to you?
Feelings don’t really go away…new ones just come your way. but the old ones will always stay.
…and then you said “hey”, *Jesus Christ what should i say?* “um hi” *so you do remember!* “how are you” *holy…i’m glad to see you!* “i’m good how bout you?” *oh shit wait no, i missed you* ”same well then i’ll see you around”
*service is bouta start…maybe it’s time for a good bye.* “see you around”.
the years spent apart felt like days, moments ain’t fresh in mind but they are in heart.
It was a Tuesday night, and I had just finished work. Just like every other night, I was craving cookies. I’m not just talking about any cookies. I’m talking about the warm, soft, and crispy dough with the melting, brown chocolate that my mother used to make. Its smell used to feel my mouth with water and put me in a better mood after a hard school day. Oh well, I’ll just have to settle for “chips Ahoy” from the convenient store around the corner. Since it’s winter, I have to wear boots and all that stuff; to me, it’s the only downside of winter, having to wear all that stuff just to walk a couple blocks. Since it bothered me so much, I decided to stay in my sweatpants and just change shoes. Anyway, I finally got out and started walking. Itwas pretty cold, the weather channel had predicted a big snow shower tonight , so I knew I would not be going back outside after I got home. After arriving at the store, I went straight into the candy & sweet section of the store. So many choices, from sour candy to liquid sweets, to cookies and chewing gum. “let’s not get distracted!”, I said to myself. I grabbed a pack of “chips Ahoy” and went to the beverage section to get tea; I figured that since it was going to get cold, I would need some tea because coffee wasn’t really doing it for me. As I reached for the tea pack, a familiar male voice interrupted me: ” Eli! Hey man, it’s been such a long time.”. “Oh my goodness, is that you RJ?!”, I yelled, surprised. He was one of my best friends during middle school and half of high school. He moved to California at the end of sophomore year. We promised we would keep contact, but who are we kidding? He went to LA and I stayed on the other side in Jersey. We talked about college and our experiences after that. He told me that he had just arrived about a month ago, and that he works as a g teacher in a high school in the area. I told him about me and how I became a website programer. I was going to ask him if he was married when woman appeared behind him and kissed him on the neck while hugging him. I could not believe it, it was her…
POV of you sitting in a shop watching a beautiful/handsome person passes by
- Hopeless Romantic -
Once upon a time, there was once a hopeless romantic pimp who had the desire to attain the paradisaical woman that will satisfy his heart that had been patiently for the right time. The pimp, hanging out at Dunkin’ Donuts with his best friend talking about how he is unable to find that person. But then, at exactly 6:07pm November 11, 2011 the pimp saw a beautiful, down-to-earth woman opening the door, looking around and going to a person who works there and asked “Excuse me, do you have a garbage can?” with a British accent.
POV: in a coffee shop, seeing a handsome guy pass by.
The lady’s perspective. -fauveee
he’s out of the ordinary, one of a kind.
It’s not like the normal: a hot guy walks by, think about him for a little while then he’ll be forgotten.
This one’s different. He wasn’t hot. He was beautiful. It was an obvious creation of Him.
I was stunned. His eyes were like the coffee i was drinking, i couldn’t resist.
How can someone so scrumptious be alone. I wish i can fill the spaces between his fingers and he can fill mines.
I thought love grows through time..but that was before..before i saw you. my first glance of you..it was love, at first sight.
I wonder if i should go and start a convo. I don’t know his name, but i don’t mind calling him mine.
I was speechless…not by his beauty this time, but by hers, the one that he probably calls “mine”.
But what if she’s just a friend..i still have time…time to say hi.
It’s my first time, first time not fantisizing because reality is finally better than a good dream. It’s unbelievable.
Stood up..and smiled, our conversation’s scripted on my mind. It was perfect. but then she filled the spaces…the spaces i wanted to fill. you held her tight, i looked away and never got to see your smile.
I was back to my old ways…turning my bad reality, to an unbelivable fantasy.
POV of you sitting in a shop watching a beautiful/handsome person passes by
The unknown -eli
So I’m sitting there enjoying my drink
I see a beautiful Girl walking
Sitting there, I’m thinking and
Imagining what’s her life like
To the beautiful girl walking by:
I see you passing by
I can’t help but think: “what if I said hi?”
“would it be that bad?”
Trust me I’m not that bad
But girl you’re so bad,
you got me bugging like a bad program
Because you’re so fine,
but it’s my bad
My game should be on point with the experience that I’ve had
And girl You’re so fine,
when God made you, he could not believe his eyes.
I also imagined her story, and what it was supposed to be like:
It’s too bad beauty isn’t everything
if only it could bring back your desire for living.
Because deep down you’re hurting
I can see it on you eyes even though you’re smiling
Regardless of how many layers, Make up can’t hide your pain and suffering.
Believe it or not, I can relate.
Cause I’ve been there done that, I wasted my time waiting.
I know you’re suffering but remember, what you’re living now will help you appreciate what’s coming.
So keep on living.
Need a peace of mind? Here have a sip of wine. Oh I forgot to tell you but damn girl you’re fine. I think this might be a sign. It’s what I have in mind. You got me fine. You work better than a pick up line. You’re a ten like a dime. Let’s chill when we have the time. Ill call you sunshine, cause ill be around you like the earths orbit line. Lemonlime, is that what you drink on your free time? I forgot your name so can I call you mine? I can make laugh like a stupid mime. I’m informed like new york times. I’m good at making rhymes. I’m a hero cause I’ll be fighting crimes. Fight guys who crosses the line. They want you but you’re mine. Ill stick to you like a slime. Ill dig deeper in your mind like a mine. You TAN better than COS and SIN. Ill be your dashboard instead of a timeline.
I… always fall for the wrong one
You know? The type I know I could never have
At first she seems so perfect and interesting
I can’t help but look at her, all the time
When I look at her, it’s like no one else is there
And when I’m with her, I am the happiest man alive
Too bad we can never be together
You have your world, and I have mine
It makes me sad that I could never be a part of it
Mine is all about you and you know it
Even though I’m aware of that reality, I can’t help but dream; I hope…
