Threats

Why?

I yawned, and continued to walk to school, dragging my feet behind me.

Yesterday, I spent the whole night watching dramas. I know, it's my fault, but I couldn't help it. It was just too good!
I stretched and yawned, and trudged across the street. As I walked, someone came from behind me and shouted.
"Good morning!"
I jumped in shock and turned my head around groggily, to see Seungmin standing there, grinning like a fool.
"Go away," I said, ignoring him. I turned around and walked away.
Before I got far, Seungmin ran up beside me and started talking.
"Aren't you going to walk with me?" He asked, his eyes curved downward. He was pouting, like a little kid.
"I don't want anything to do with you. Especially at school," I muttered. I quickened my pace, to try to get away from him.
"but you're my girlfriend," Seungmin said. I stopped. I turned around, and grabbed his wrist, dragging him in a small desolated area.
I backed him up against the wall, and leaned close to his ear.
"I'm not your girlfriend, and I don't want you mentioning this again, ever. If you do, I'll spill your secret," I said.
Seungmin put his hands on my shoulders and pushed me away.
"What are you even talking about? I don't have any secrets," Seungmin said, smiling with intent in his eyes.
"I know one," I said.
My heart was thudding in my chest. I was worried...
I was lying. I needed to have something against him. But... could he tell that I didn't know anything?
Seungmin said nothing, but stared at me, his eyes seeming to burn right through me.
"Fine. I won't mention it, but you're still my girlfriend," Seungmin said.
"I don't want to be your stupid girlfriend! If you keep saying that I am, I'm just going to tell the whole school your secret," I shouted at him.
He smirked.
"But I have your secret. If you spill mine, yours will be spilled too."
I growled at him, "But it isn't fair. You can't just do what you want. So here's a deal. You won't spread my secret, and I won't spread yours. But... we're not going to be in a relationship either,"
"What fun is that?" He grinned at me. His innocent act was playing up again.
"Look. Why are you even doing this to me anyways? Why not pick up one of the other girls who come crawling for your attention?" I spat, walking towards him.
"It's cause you have no intent of making me yours. You're special, and I like that about you," He said.
We stood there a while, until he checked his watch.
"Shoot," Seungmin looked up at me, "We're going to be late."
He bolted towards the main street, and I followed. I can't be late. If I did, I'll have more work to do!
"My girlfriend can't bear to stay away from me, huh?" Seungmin shouted over his shoulder as he ran.
My eyebrow twitched in irritation. Who does he think he is?
