She’s been feeling sick since yesterday, blowing her nose every five minutes while on the phone with him. Regardless of what the time is, he stays on the phone with her. She ends up going to sleep and saying goodnight to him. She wakes up in the middle of the night, yet still goes to school that morning. Near the end of 2nd block, she can’t take it anymore, feeling lousy and broken down, so she chooses to go home. She stops by his class after borrowing his umbrella to tell him that she’s leaving school for the day. He exchanges a couple words of “goodbye” and “Feel better” and gives her a kiss and hug, letting her go. She leaves school and walks to the bus station, waiting for her bus to come. She can’t hear anything but the sound of the rain pouring and her music playing. Minutes go by. The school bell rings, and she turns around to look at the swarm of students walking to opposite buildings, trying to avoid the rain. She waits.
All of a sudden, she hears a big thump. She looks down on the ground and its a binder. A binder that has a familiar look to it. She looks up, and its him, coming under the umbrella with no jacket or anything. A big smile grows on her face. He lifts her chin up and gives her a soft kiss on the lips.
“I didn’t want you to wait for the bus alone”, he says.
… that is love.
