To the username [Dracula] this is for you... you helped me a lot!!!
Rachel had never been so embarrassed. Only ten minutes earlier, everyone was dismissed for recess after finishing Art (their current topic was Humor and they were doing caricatures) She felt her own drawing, a caricature of Vladimir Putin was good enough as she left for snack. Her two besties, Sammie and Summer, had stayed behind to do some improvements for their caricature of Donald Trump in class. Normally, they would be inseparable. But they were whispering excitedly which obviously meant that they had some good ideas.
Matt, Rachel’s crush, suddenly stopped outside the door. He asked her if she was OK. She grinned, turning red. She stuttered a soft yes and went to play frisbee after hurrying down the hall. Forgetting about her two bestie’s behaviour, time passed quickly amid happy shouts and screams of the Ultimate Frisbee game, interrupted a few times by Herbert, the world’s most annoying person. Coming back, she noticed something strange.
Sammie passed her, giggling madly, and as she caught Summer’s eye Summer hasty made to hide a book, glowing with mirth. She grabbed her bag, and switched to the next class, Arithmetic. Smiling widely, Summer, passed her her book. She snatched it away, Summer turning back quickly. She went along, but suddenly some people stared. She looked at her clothes and bag, making sure hadn’t spilled any paint. She started. Written on her book, in big fat black marker, were the words “I ♡ Matt” written a dozen times. Herbert appeared, laughing. “You!” she half shouted. “No, no, it was the two friends Sammie and Summer. I can’t wait to tell Matt!” She tried to stop him, but that only made her notebook more prominent.
She sighed deeply. Math was a quadruple period, and fortunately, it was so boring everybody didn’t mention Rachel’s not-so-secret secret. Today's unit was Ratios, meaning they had to figure out the equivalent of an average obtuse triangle proportional to the binary fraction of pi cubed. Even Rachel was glad to get out of that horrible lesson. But at lunch, after eating her main diet of homemade tempura and rice, she saw angrily that Herbert was speaking silently into Matt’s ear. Matt went over to Rachel instantly. She tried to run away as she noticed she was turning a deep shade of crimson, but Matt folded her hand into his and squeezed it, looking at her furtively. “Really?” he asked, but Rachel was still frozen with shock, caught unawares of his speed.
Thankfully, by some miracle, he left for Science as the bell rang, but after school caught up with her again, seeming unrested. “Explain.” he said immediately, grabbing her shoulders. Rachel couldn't move. She was frozen by instinct and her mind was in overload. He pulled her close and glanced away. Now she could see his feelings in his eyes. Realisation dawned over her. It was not shock. It was love. They kissed each other thoughtfully. He slowly drew back, awaiting her reaction. She gave a small smile, both of them blushing, then walked away. They were good friends ever since.
