"Hey, Erin!!" I called to the back row of the bleachers. She didn't even look up from the book she was so focused on since when I showed it to her in the library. I sat down next to her. "Errrriiiiinnn....." I groaned, waiting for a response. It usually works... I thought, remembering every time I'd gotten 0 response from her. "Errrrrriiiiiiiiiinnn!!!" I became louder. She finally looked up, and with a smile on her face. "Hannah, jeez." She laughed, and I laughed too. We both leaned forward because we were laughing so hard. I looked up at her and she looked up at me. I leaned in closer, and she did too. I looked her dead in the eye, and then it happened. She kissed me.

I came home from working at a drug store for a couple of hours and found a bra that wasn't Erin's and obviously not mine. It was different from Erin's or mine. I walked into where I heard noises and knew it was time that I broke up with her.
