I was twelve years old when I first saw him. He was fifteen. I want to say it was love at first sight. He was the cutest guy I've ever seen. His golden blonde hair was like a ray of sunshine. His eyes were the color of the ocean. When he smiled, I felt an unusual pressure in my chest as I dreamed of kissing his soft-looking lips. To me, he was perfect, still is. Too bad he never notices me.
Even now, as we grew older he only sees me as his sister's friend, nothing more. But I haven't given up hope yet. I will show you I am a grown woman now and I am the one you want to be with!
Okay, I am still seventeen, but at least I am not a kid! Guys in my high school say I am pretty and they ask me to go on dates but I only have one person in my heart. Zack Myers.
"Millie! There you are," my best friend Alison shouted from across the hall. She was Zack's sister and my best friend since middle school. She was the reason I got to meet the love of my life.
It was the beginning of our senior year so I was organizing my locker.
"Hey Ali," I said.
"Are you coming over after school," she asked.
"Of course I am!" I said. I wouldn't miss a chance to see Zack, I thought to myself.
"Good, because 'you know who' will be there," she said and winked. As my best friend, she knew exactly how I felt about her brother and she fully supported me. Which is why I think she is the coolest girl in the entire school.
After school, I told my mom to drop me off at Allison's house. I checked the mirror beforehand to make sure I looked good. not that it mattered. Zack never cared about how I looked anyway.
My heart thumped against my chest as I saw him sitting in the living room.
"Hey Zack," I said shyly.
Zack gave me a bright smile. The same one that made me fall for him, hard. "How are you doing kiddo?"
I wished he wouldn't use that nickname on me. It made me feel so...young. "I am okay, are you doing anything special today?" I asked.
"Melanie is coming over so I might hang out with her," he shrugged.
Right...forgot about Melanie. Zack and Melanie were in an on and off relationship. She was the thorn in my eyes, the bane of my existence, and the biggest cock-block between me and Zack.
"Oh okay then, I'll see you later," I said and left in a hurry. I've known him for 6 years but he still made me nervous.
I moved away from his sight but didn't leave the room entirely. I stood there and watched him longingly. Why couldn't I be a woman and confess my feelings already? Even if he rejects me it'll at least end this misery. But I was too afraid to get rejected, my teenage heart wouldn't be able to take it.
"If you are done ogling at my brother, I'd like you to move. You are blocking my way," a deep voice spoke in my ear, startling me to my core.
Freaking Hayden Myers...
