I still can't recover from the fact that...I am inside Jared's House. Specifically inside his room now. Like seriously, I can't believe this! I roamed my eyes around his room, it was so clean and well organized, his books we're arranged on a shack beside his study table that is positioned in front of his window.
"Sorry." he said.
"For what?" I asked curiously.
"For dragging you up here, you probably didn't want to." He said, are you kidding me? This is like a major achievement for me, I wanted to tell him that but instead I said.
"No, it's actually okay we had to get away from there anyways." I said and looked away, I spotted a guitar beside his bed.'
"You play?" I asked and he shyly nodded.
"Used to." he said firmly
"Cool! Is that your thing?" I asked again, well if he's not gonna talk or ask then I will.
"Kind of, I learned when I was five." He said geez, he's so good at ending conversations well sadly I'm good at making them longer.
"So I assume you're kind of a pro with that?" I asked and he stared at me so I immediately looked down and I can feel that my cheeks are burning.
"Why are you so curious? I'm not someone you should be curious about, don't get the wrong idea of me bringing you here, I just want to get away from there too so don't assume much." He said gosh he's really putting up a wall between us.
"Okay, whatever just so you know Mr. Scotland, I'm not assuming anything here I just want to be friends with you that's all, Geez! I think you're the one assuming things here." I said as I smirked he just rolled his eyes at me and he sat on his study table.
I roamed around his room and saw a trophy dumped on a basket, I curiously grabbed it and my eyes widened as I read what the award was for.
"Most Valuable Player of the year?" I read it aloud and with just a blink of an eye I saw him in front of me and he grabbed the award.
"What the hell Swift?" He was furious.
"S-sorry I didn't mean to-" he cut me of saying
"Gosh you're driving me crazy already, get out! They're probably done downstairs!" He said not shouting but not also calm. It was clear that he was furious.
I immediately ran downstairs and I almost stumbled upon his mom, she was about to call me! Wow, great timing!
As my mom drove, she tried to open up topics about Jared, but I refused to entertain her.
I hate him! Why would he get mad over a trophy? Is that some kind of an antique that no one is supposed to touch? I don't get him! Are nerds always like that? Ugh! Forget It! I'm gonna ignore him from now on!
Pathetic! You're such a loser Scotland! She's there, right in front of you and you let her slip away!
I've got a crush from her since the moment I set my eyes on her and now she noticed me. I'm pushing her away which is clearly the dumbest thing to do! Well you guys can't blame me this could be a prank she's playing with her friends.
God I'm so fucking confused! Yes I like her but I know I can't be with her! That'll be the end of my hiding. Yes, yes I'm hiding, not because I'm a criminal but because I used to be on the same level as she did, I used to be one of the guys who was adored in school, but due to an accident people thought I died, my mom and dad decided to change my name, and I decided to pretend to be like a nerd so that people would be less curious of me, so that they wouldn't bring up my past.
I looked at my guitar and started to play.
"Going back to the corner where I first saw you
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag I'm not gonna move
Got some words on cardboard, got your picture in my hand
Saying, 'If you see this girl can you tell her where I am?'" I sang as I started to see Brittany's smiling face in my mind, WTH?
"Some try to hand me money, they don't understand
I'm not broke - I'm just a broken-hearted man
I know it makes no sense but what else can I do?
How can I move on when I'm still in love with you?
'Cause if one day you wake up and find that you're missing me
And your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be thinking maybe you'll come back here to the place that we'd meet
And you'll see me waiting for you on the corner of the street" The door suddenly flung open and saw my mom with her eyes sparkling yet I glared at her.
"It's been forever since I heard you sing Red, I'm sorry." She said
"You don't have to be sorry mom, I chose this for myself" I said then I hugged her.
"Geez, date someone already son!" She said and I gave her a poker face as I let go.
Early morning I ran to him at the classroom but I didn't looked at him not even once, Faye got curious and asked me.
