I kept my head in my lap. I didn’t need to look at this newcomer. I knew who it was. Since there was only one person on this island who called me “Princess,” it wasn’t exactly hard. But ব্যক্ত person was also the last person I wanted to see now. Especially after our little encounter মিনিট ago.
But why did he follow me?
I could hear him approaching me, his footsteps cautious. When he was feet from me, he spoke again.
“Princess?” he repeated. “Is that you? Why did আপনি run?” His voice was curious and angry as he asked the question. I sniffed in response. I didn’t want to talk to him ever again.
He moved closer. “Aw, hey, don’t cry. Seriously, I don’t do tears. No idea how to handle ‘em.” He sounded like himself again. Why did he even care? The moment of truth was my revelations, not his. Actually, though, I don’t know why I was crying. There wasn’t really anything to cry about.
I finally looked up at him, tear tracks running down my face. “Why did আপনি follow me?” I asked. “You’re not exactly the sympathetic type.” I added. Now I sounded like myself. Honestly, why does he do this to me? I’m not supposed to care! I’m going to be running for office one day, and I don’t want people knowing I once fell for a delinquent. It’d ruin my whole campaign.
But suddenly, I didn’t care. Right now all I cared about was finding out why the hell this piercing-adorned, green-mohawk-wearing, bad boy was here trying to comfort me. Well, if he was, he wasn’t doing a good job.
I think he could tell I was having a fight with myself. So he paused for a মিনিট before speaking.
“I’m here cause আপনি are.”
I don’t know why I ব্যক্ত that. Well, there was nothing else to say. Her face was glimmering in the sun, thanks to recently fallen tears. Courtney was so sensitive. আপনি can’t say anything to the girl without her either freaking out অথবা crying her eyes out. But this time I was utterly confused. I didn’t even say anything!
“Look, Courtney, what I meant was that-” She interrupted me. “You ব্যক্ত my name.” she said. I just looked at her funny. “Well, yeah. It is Courtney, right?”
She nodded. “Well, yes. But usually you’re calling me ‘Princess’, অথবা ‘hot stuff.’ Never my actual name.” I thought about that. She was right. I never, in সাম্প্রতিক memory, called her Courtney. I smiled. And stood up. She followed suit with a sniffle and a rub of her eyes.
“You know what? I like Princess better.”
And then I kissed her.
So there I stood, being kissed দ্বারা this-this Neanderthal, and I kinda liked it. Ok, not kinda, a lot. It just felt…right.
He obviously didn’t care that my face was wet and sticky from tears, অথবা that we were in plain sight of anyone who entered the woods. It was also apparent that that he didn’t care that it was out of nowhere.
But I held on.
I ran my fingers through his green dyed hair and pressed my lips fiercely against his. I could tell he was surprised দ্বারা the way he sort of pulled back a bit, but when the shock was over he held on as tight as I did. And that was saying something, cause you’d think I was holding on for dear life my grip was so tight.
But, all good things come to an end. And the end came in a form of……
Oh My Gosh…..
….Chris and his camera crew.
“That. Was. AWESOME!!!” think আপনি guys could do it again, maybe near the সৈকত অথবা something?” Chris asked. Stupid narcissist. But only one thought came through my brain.
My life is over.
