To beautiful you - short stories 2020

“You look pretty in that dress” – Anonymous.I had a crush with one girl. I love to see her smile. I like how she dresses, how she tied her hair. She looks so cute. I always teased her look, teased how she was talking, but no one knew that I had the crush on her.Are you wondering how long I had known her? We know each other since we were a little kid. Our parents had a good relationship, for almost 20 years. She’s my best female friend in my hometown. She always came to help me when I was bullied. Since then, we’ve been a friend since we were 9 years old.Never had in my thought that I would have a crush with my best friend. But, that is possible, right?We’ve entered the same school since we still in primary school and up until now, we still entered the same college, same universities, but she was in her ballet classroom and I was more into social studies. Our faculties were apart, but when we had time, we would meet. As our relationship as a friend grow longer, and we became older, I r…

Thank you, I love you - Confession part 1

"I'm happy for you while feeling unhappy that I'm not your author of happiness" 

Life is funny, how it starts and how it will end, so does the relationship. I'm Zack, I had a crush on this girl, Athalia. She is funny, kind and brilliant. I know her while we were still in high school.

For the first time we meet, I've felt like I have known her for a long time. She was really a nice girl to go out with, not bored at all, always had a story and friendly. I kind of like her, I like her attitude, I like how she speaks, the gesture of her hand, the way she smiles. The more we get to know each other, the more I like her. 

But, there's is one problem. I have never been with any girl, a beautiful girl like her and I am kind of nerd. I was not confident with myself. I was bullied since I was still a kindergarten, and now I am 18 years old, I still got mock by my colleagues. 

Athalia was the only friend who wanted to befriend me. We both were assigned to be in group for a project. For the first time we met, I thought she never wanted to hang out with a boy, nerdy, spectacles and a thin-looking guy like me. I was wrong. She is not like another girl, she just, sweet, and generous and that what makes me like her.

I was shy at first, but she is the one who talks a lot, and the only one who treats me like I exist. The others? they just bullied me, ask me to do their assignment, ask me to go to the teacher and being the third wheel. For a second I wish I can be an invisible person.

But, when I am with Athalia, I am so happy. Until one day, I know the truth about Athalia. She had a boyfriend. Her boyfriend is a rugby player of the school, first-class student, good looking and too popular?

Knowing the truth, makes me felt awkward with Athalia because I like her. Comparing myself to Athalia's boyfriend would probably embarrass me. So, I did what I did. I tried to act like nothing is happened. I am the one who felt awkward with Athalia, she's not. She still treats me the same.

Oh no, I was really embarrassed about it.

Luckily, everything seems fine. Although I get bullied a lot, I still graduated from high school. Oh man, I really wanted to get away from that school, but I will never forget one of my memoir with Athalia. A companion that I will never forget about. High school, Done!
