The heart fluttered and murmured a soft soulful love song, as it did daily, whenever I saw her in the class. I had to talk to her, had to tell her my feelings. At least she knew I existed – she would smile at me occasionally and I’d spend the whole day on cloud-9.
It was the last exam – last day of school. Now or never – I psyched myself as the exam ended, walked up to her and blurted, “I love you“. Smiling indulgently she patted my 12-year-old head, “Why don’t you go and play? Let me check your papers“.
Was hoping to pen a 55, but the first draft happened to have 100 words. Was too lazy to edit 45 words 🙂
Disclaimer: I am not the protagonist, I did not do this; at least I did not say anything to my Chemistry teacher 🙂
