' All I ever wanted to do was get close to you'
--------------------------
The second day he walked into the loud and annoying U.S History class, he went straight to the back of the room. I sat in that row too.

In every class, I hated being called on, having any attention drawing to me, or people asking me questions in class.

But Jacob...
He made everything so much worse.
- He told the teacher I had the answers.
- Called me out for not doing my work.
- Asked me as many questions that he possibly could.
He did everything to make me want to hate him when I would never be able to.

I couldn't take it anymore so I skipped half of the class the next day to "go to the guidance counselor" (as my late pass explained to the teacher)

When I walked in, he came running out. I wanted to follow him but I couldn't risk another absence. He never came back. I walked back to my desk. My mind running millions of thoughts left and right inside my jumbled up mind. I got back to my desk and found a crumpled up piece of paper on my desk with a post-it with my name on it attached to it. I sat down and pretended to do my work as I opened the paper.
I read it slowly...
~ Lucia. I'm sorry. I tried. I failed. I think I like you and I fucked it all up yesterday. If you can, come talk. I'm behind the school where the teachers' park~
He never stayed.
He never came back the entire day.
