Whenever I see clear blue sky, I remember your smiling face, your long hair and the awkwardness around us.
For me, every day was fun. In school, I had friends who would do crazy things and at home, I had my family who would listen to me when I would throw tantrums, would pamper me and support me in my every decision.
It was the month of August. As usual, I had packed my books in the bag and was running to school. When I reached school, the bell had already rung; with no choice left, I had to sneak in from the back gate. Finally when I had sneaked in safely, I saw him sleeping in the bench. He was one of the scariest guy in our grade. Without making any sound, I walked away.
I was late again the next day, as usual I sneaked in. Then, I saw him again. Pretending that I didn’t notice him, I walked towards my classroom. Then a voice came from behind saying, “Oh! You are late again.” I was so afraid that I dashed towards the classroom without looking back. That was so scary. I had never thought that the scariest guy in the class would caught me red handed. I was so scared and started thinking that he would blackmail me or will ask for money, and also thought about many other crazy possibilities.
The next day, I was right on time. I thanked myself for not being late and avoiding even the slightest chance of meeting him. I was relieved. I was enjoying myself with my friends when I was suddenly called out. The person who called me out was none other than him. I was so scared that I didn’t even look at his face and kept staring at the ground. He suddenly reached out his hand, I thought he was going to beat me up but when I opened my eyes, I saw a juice can in my hand and his smiling face saying, “I am sorry if I had scared you the other day. This juice is as an apology.” I was so confused that I started to sweat a lot and fell on the ground.
When I reached home that day, I was so shocked that I immediately went to my room and started panicking. I was so perplexed seeing his smiling face that the next day, I followed him everywhere. I had clearly become a stalker. I was amazed to find a completely different side of him. I started to enjoy watching him reveal many sides of him. My eyes had started to follow him everywhere and whenever our eyes met, he would blush and avert his gaze. Without noticing, he caught hold of my heart so naturally.
Once I realized that I was in love with him, I mustered up all my courage and proposed to him. As I had pictured, his face was flushed. When my friends heard that I had proposed one of the scariest guy in our grade, they were so shocked that their jaws dropped.
It has been three years since then. Remembering it back, I am glad that I proposed to him. Oh! It’s 2 pm already. As usual I am late for my date. :D :D
