My friend dating my crush
The unfolding of all true love stories Today I met him, the boy in the middle of this whole love story. I guess there was that bit of girliness underneath my skin of a tomboy. All this, without ever knowing whether there was a girl in his life or whether he would ever like me. And I was his Cinderella, only without the glass slippers. I went to the court where he was practicing and occupied a corner. Back in eight grade of my schooling, I had a huge crush on him. During my pinky frilly days (minus the pink and frill, realistically I was a tomboy), I was the goon in school, and a good one at that. Within no time I had all the information about him. How could I tell him, should I even tell him, and other questions along those lines became more important to me than algebra and differentiation. The beginning of my true love story I remember the day when I first saw him and it feels like it was just yesterday. My friends and I were walking on the loggia and then, just like in one of the H-Town mush movies, time just stood still.

I loved him the same way I did the first day I saw him. One time, as I was sauntering home after school, I saw him.

To pursue my education, I went to the big city where my parents lived. “I was wondering if something happened to you”, he added. It was one thing to flirt from your balcony, but a completely different thing to talk to him, that too in front of your school. I just shrugged my shoulder and said, “Blame my shitty mood”. My first date was converting into a disaster and I was the jackass axing the branch I was sitting on. And I got to know much more about him and his family as the time passed. He is responsible for bringing out the lost confidence in me and I am not afraid to be myself with him. He proposed to me and it was the best day of my life.
“Uhm, oh, ok” Whew, I could talk to him too, though in monosyllables. And he was talking to me like he knew me for years. He was asking why he didn’t see me on the balcony the last two days.

One day, the school's No.1 beauty, Masuzu Natsukawa, invites him to walk home with her.
He quickly deduces that Masuzu is scheming something.
But instead of bringing him to me, she hooked up with him. [Read: Experiencing unrequited love] Time passed by and I really grew up this time. A true love story rekindled But then I clung close to my parents and I loved it. For the first time in my life I was a girly girl who actually was hogging all the stares of the men from Mars, and vicious green stares from Venusian eyes. “Harmless flirting”, that’s what one of my cousins called it. He was good, with words (gestures actually, as we never spoke to each other) and I was mesmerized by his eyes. Just last month, my first crush tracked me down on Facebook. Just like that, an acquaintance with an old friend was what he said. I told him that I would meet him at a café the next evening. It felt like he was just a stranger that I had bumped into for a conversation.
