|Biggest regret. Losing something without even trying.|
It was the first day of high school at a brand new school. As she approached the door to her class late which was the last thing she wanted as being late all eyes would be on her and in that thought in it itself seemed embarrassing. Two students were out in the hall a girl with dark piercing brown eyes and a guy who both seemed to be flirting trying not to make eye contact with them she stood there trying to figure out how to ask how many students were in there but before she could ask they both went into the class. Standing there for a minute or two the teacher asked from the classroom "Are you coming in?". "Uh, yes" she replied, taking a deep breath went in not looking at anyone but the floor and sat at an empty chair which were all put in a circle so everyone could introduce themselves a brown eyed brunette naive maybe a little or a lot came her turn "My name is Livia". She eventually made friends with that girl from the hall whose name was Jeanette. Livia wanted to form a clique so she introduced Jeanette to two other friends she met from the classroom whose names were Sahara and Pam. Now she had her clique other thoughts began to creep into her mind, thoughts about love. She pictured love as her favourite movie lets call it "The Bride" where there's this poor stable poor boy who says "As you wish" a lot and he was referred to as poor and perfect. As the school year progressed she started to think about love more and more and wondered how would her first love would be like, thoughts of...Would he buy me flowers?How would he look like? She would often spend her nights gazing up at the sky from her bedroom window admiring how bright the moon and stars were in the dark sky with the clouds floating by wondering if whoever he was if he was staring up at the sky wondering the same thing. It was during math class that she first noticed him. His name was Winslow he had brown eyes and a charming smile, feeling nervous seated next to him she tried to figure out how to stir up a conversation. She asked "Uh, do you know how to do this?" pointing to her paper. He looked at her and said "No", feeling hurt she felt her eyes begin to water as it took a lot for her to even muster to ask that question as she was a very shy girl. Probably noticing her eyes water he tried to help her a few minutes later explaining how to go about it. As the school year went on she imagined which out of her classmates would be her boyfriend. Then one day Winslow rushed up to her smiling asking her to wait up for him saying he had something to ask her, she thought to herself oh my god this is it he's going to ask. He had a friend with him then Winslow said "A friend of mine wanted me to ask if you would go out with him". Disappointed she said "No" and that was it. It was recreation day and the students got to play a video game versing one another determined to win she choose her usual player and beat out the whole class Winslow was impressed. Realizing that maybe if she found some common interests as Winslow then maybe he'd notice her. So she practised on how to be a hockey goalie with her brother taking shots at her and over time she became very good. It was during gym class she made her debut and showed off at what a good goalie she was. After class Winslow called her "Pavel Burry", she laughed. One day Winslow begged Livia to be the goalie on his team hesitating she said "No", flashing his irresistible smile she gave in. When she walked into the gymnasium the bleachers were filled with crowds of cheering people, standing at the hockey net she froze Winslow was standing in front of her trying to encourage her. Seeing the hockey puck head straight for her she couldn't move, score! Livia walked out feeling mad at herself for not even trying, mad at herself for being afraid. Another day gone by it was picture day Livia sat in a stairwell feeling uneasy then Winslow appeared flashing her one of his charming smiles. It was the end of class and Winslow and Livia were both the last to leave making eye contact holding one another's gaze Livia not watching where she was going almost smacked right into the wall, Winslow smiled. Both of them realizing they couldn't wait for each school day to see one another again. Click here to read the rest of this story (89 more lines)
