You sat in the back hallway in front of the band room. You pulled your knees close to you and laid your head on them. Not wanting to hear the babbling of passing students, you plugged your headphones into your Ipod. Feeling that you were alone, you allowed yourself to cry. Big tears cascaded down your cheeks, leaving damp markings on your jeans.
You sobbed for many reasons, but one stuck out in your mind. Elizaveta, your best friend, had just asked out the guy you have liked since 3rd grade, Gilbert Beilschmidt. Elizaveta was always much more beautiful than you, or at least from your point of view. Her hair was always perfect, make-up perfect, smile perfect. She was perfect in every way and that's why Gilbert said yes.
Elizaveta knew you liked Gilbert, and that's exactly why she asked him out. She knew your body was finally starting to fill out. Slowly by surely, you had begun to gain popularity among the other juniors and Elizaveta didn't like it. Gilbert even began to notice you.
'Why is she so selfish? Curse this stupid body! I have never even had a boyfriend because of that evil witch!' You angrily think.
Wiping your face on your hoodie, you climb off the floor to come face to face with Gilbert. His ruby red eyes shine with worry. Your ________ eyes are ringed red from crying, and you fear you might just burst out crying right then. You attempt to push passed him, but he grabs your wrist. He pulls you to him and hugs you. You stand there in shock, and gradually relax into his touch. You heart feels so broken, and you feel the sobs rising in your throat; and holding the sobs down caused you to tremble.
Soon enough, you couldn't hold it in and erupted into sobs, which made you shake violently. Gilbert held onto you, and stroked your ________ hair. Gilbert whispered into your ear, "Why are you crying? Someone as beautiful as you should never have reason to cry. Where is he? Where is the douche bag that did this to you"
You looked up at Gilbert, tears roll down your face. Gilbert reaches up a wipes the tears away. You can't get your voice above a whisper, but he still hears you. "It's you, Gilbert. You made me cry. You and Elizaveta, caused this. The bitch took everything from me." You cling tighter onto Gilbert, hoping that he will never let go.
"Oh ________, Elizaveta lied to you. I told her no. I love someone else. Someone with shining ________ eyes when she smiles, and perfect ________ hair. That person is you, when I see you in the hallway my heart skips a beat. Sure Elizaveta is popular, but when she smiles all I see is evil intentions." He held on to you like no tomorrow. Your heart skips a beat, and you begin to smile. You look up at Gilbert, and saw his beautiful red eyes shining like a million stars at night.
"Gilbert, all this time I felt like no one truly cared about me. But here you are waiting for me, like I waited for you. Gilbert, I love you! I love you so much! I feel my heart swelling with joy!" You wrapped your arms around his shoulders.
"Thanks God, ______! I love you, too! You are my world!" You giggled as he spun you around in circles. The world seemed complete. Until Elizaveta cleared her throat, and Gilbert set you down. "Elizaveta, you don't belong here. Band kids only!" Gilbert growled.
"I'm only here for her. The traitor!" She pointed a red, white, and green striped manicured nail at you.
"Elizaveta, the only traitor is here is you. I trusted you with my deepest secrets and you went around and told them to people. All the crushes I had throughout the years, you dated and then you told them I liked them. That's cruel! Today was the last straw! Asking out Gilbert, even though you know I had a major crush on him." You looked at her, and her expression changed to one of pity.
Elizaveta cleared her throat and then whistled a low whistle. Behind her, Tyler May and Aaron Glitter appeared and looked angry. "_________, you remember Tyler and Aaron. They are still angry with you for beating the shit out of them last year." Tyler hit a growth spurt over the summer because he was at least 6 inches taller than last year. Aaron looked the same only more muscular. They both looked handsome, but Gilbert was a god compared to them.
You smirked at Elizaveta. Sure you beat the shit out of them, but Elizaveta took their underwear and hung it on the flag pole outside of the school. That was much more embarrassing than the beating you gave them. You looked Tyler and Aaron in the eye and nodded. They were band geeks too, they understood whose side to take.
"Elizaveta, you forgot something. Tyler and Aaron are both in the band, and will take my side. Plus, you did something much more embarrassing to them. You just made a mistake." Tyler and Aaron smacked Elizaveta in the ass, which caused an unexpected moan to escape from her. Then they took a stance next to you and Gilbert. You could hear them whispering "Whore" under their breath.
"________, you are very cocky. But I can make the rest of your high school life miserable." She turned and clicked away in her expensive heels.
"Yeah right!", you yelled back, "Thanks Tyler, Aaron. You guys were awesome and nice acting. Pretending to take her side was awesome. I'm sorry about last year……." You faded out, feeling really bad about it.
"_______, Don't worry about, we had it coming. Just never thought it would be you doing it. We'll see you later!" Tyler smiled at you and grabbed Aaron's arm. Aaron waved bye and then they disappeared into the noisy band room.
Gilbert smiled down at you, and pulled you close to him. You pecked him on the cheek, and giggled. "Oh no you don't!" Gilbert chuckled and smashed his lips into yours. This was your first kiss. It felt hot and lustful. Gilbert licked your bottom lip asking for entrance. You kept your mouth sealed, and smiled against his lips. Gilbert smirked and squeezed your ass, gaining a squeak from you. He quickly thrusted his tongue into your mouth. He explored every part of your wet cavern.
You both pulled apart gasping for much needed oxygen. You rested your head on his shoulder, wanting this moment to last forever. In the distance, you could hear the 2:45 bell ringing, signaling the end of school. You kissed Gilbert on the cheek and give his a quick hug before skipping out to catch the bus.
