It all comes back to me , my miserable past .I used to have a huge crush on Justin Sanders since second grade ,I used to hide in the bushes and watch him play soccer at the park.
My best friend Luke used to distract me from my huge obsession with Justin but never succeeded. Even my brothers knew how stubborn I was but it all changed when Luke admitted his feelings to me and didn't know I had feelings for him but that day ,I realised I did. My mind always plays that memory every time I'm sad or angry
It's the 7th grade theme park trip and Luke and I are trying the death maker rollercoaster for the 4th time
"Come on slow pants" I squeal as we reach the rollercoaster.
"I can't .I told you I don't love this rollercoaster" Luke says breathless maybe because he is trying to keep up with me .
"It's cool and dangerous , just the way I like it"I say with a deep man voice which makes Luke laugh .
"You know it's called death maker for a reason right ".
"Ughh ,you are no fun".
"I promise ice cream is on me tomorrow"Luke says with puppy dog eyes ,and I can't say no to those .
"Yes,I want to show you something " Luke says as he leads me to an empty bench.
He then reaches in his pocket and pulls out a silver bracelet with a heart and his name on it .he reaches for my arm and puts the bracelet on it.
"It's beautiful "I say as I bury him in a big hug.
"I also want to tell you something"he says playing with his shirt.
"Go on ".
It takes a few minutes for him to respond but he finally say"I kinda like you ".
I stay silent still trying to digest the information.
"I know you like Justin and I understand if you don't like me in that way ... I mean I'll wait if I have to .Oh my god is this gonna change everything , just forget I said that"he says so fast I didn't make most of what he said.
"I like you too"I say.
And i really think I do like him .
Luke stands up and takes my hand in his and kisses me ,that kiss made me realise that my crush was just a phase and my best friend has just turned into my boyfriend and all my worries were gone .
I am sitting in my bed miserable ,my boyfriend that I dated for four years is now my ex and that isn't the worst thing ,the worst thing is that I also lost my best friend.
Welcome to my miserable teen story ,I would suggest you just move along,so I can die alone.
