This Totally Awesome Boy. Part Three
One of my best friends hated this guy. And he hated him. They all hated each other. Drama in high school messes up a lot of things. It almost messed up what I would think about this totally awesome boy (TAB.)
I had TAB talking to me, trying to get to know me and I had one of my closest friends telling me that he was no good. I was caught in the middle of something that I had never asked for. All because of their personal drama and mishaps. So I ignored it all, and tried to ignore both of them.
I had enough drama in my life, why would I need theirs? But apparently TAB was falling for me. And being a girl who isn't pined over everyday, I didn't notice, didn't do anything about it, and kept ignoring him.
He was practically watching on the sidelines while I kept living life, falling for other people and basically tripping over my own feet. But he kept trying to make an impression. Thank goodness he did or else I really don't know where I'd be now.
One day I decided to let everything else that had happened go. I spent an entire day of work with him without cutting him short, ignoring him, or giving him rude one-worded answers (I still don't know why I did that anyway.) I decided to let my restrictions go and just hear him out.
He kept surprising me.
To be continued...
