After coming out from Calix room I thought, 'How can he think she'll accept him. She already likes someone. And that someone is Wil, my friend. I've stopped Sam many times from approaching Wil. I don't know whether I can carry on with this. Because she's so persistent. I can't explain this to Calix either, he likes her so much.
Sam is the reason for him to smile again...So I'm not giving up on this. 'Don't worry brother, I got your back'
The next day at school, I turned to look at Sam, she was staring at Wil like usual. I looked into my book and thought,' Just stopping Sam from Wil won't make any progress, I have to do something on this.
The classes got over. I know Calix will follow Sam on her way back home. So I followed Sam without my brother conscious.
I removed my jerkin and my bag and kept them in the car and wear a mask covering my nose and mouth.
I made sure Calix was walking behind Sam every minute.
I stood in the alley and dragged her into it.
I closed her mouth with one hand and held her both hands with my other hand. I'm pretending to be a bad guy and gonna wait for Calix to come to rescue her.
In the meantime, she bit me.
Does she bite people???
I took my hand in the reflex of pain.
She punched me in the stomach using her fist and kicked me in the knee. I lost my balance and fell.
Calix came towards us and helped me to stand. I thought he's gonna help but he punched me too!!!
I heard Sam thanking him.
The name she mentioned was not like Calix.
But was... Wil?
I blinked my eyes and saw again.
It was Wil.
How did he come here? I was confused.
They left me here and went. Where the hell is Calix?
I messaged him, "Where are you?"
"I'm on the way to the library. I'll come home late. Inform mom for me. Bye."
"Thanks for helping me back there."
Will, "It's okay. I gotta go now. Get back home safe."
"I will!", I shouted like I won something.
I thought,' I wonder who that person is.' I took out the Pendrive which I found belonging to the man who attacked me earlier.'This pen drive seems so familiar'. I put it back into my bag and went home.
The next day at school, Clara said, "This is a good progress! Treat him. So that you can talk more with him."
I nodded with a smile.
During the lunch break, everyone went to Cafetaria. I said that I have some errands to do, so I'll join them later.
Ace was still in the class looking into his phone. I looked around the class. There are not many people in here.
I stood and went to where he is seated. He was still looking into his phone. I placed the Pendrive which I got from the man who attacked me on the table.
I started, "I know I'm not your type? What were you trying to do back then?"
He remained silent.
I continued, "Anyways, Thank you for that! because of that, I spoke to him. And more to that... He rescued me... And I take this as compensation for what you did before."
I was walking on the way back home thinking tomorrow is Valentine's day but I haven't bought anything for Wil. What should I buy for him?
Suddenly someone poked me on the shoulder from behind, I turned around. It was Wil.
"Hey!", saying with a wide smile on my face.
Wil said, "I would as well come with you."
He started to walk along with me. I looked at him in a confused way.
He continued, "I'll follow you in case that suspicious one may show up again!"
I smiled and said, "Thanks for that...but I think he won't."
"And why is that?"
Because he won't come after his identity is known.
I showed my fist saying, "Because after getting a punch from me, he must have understood this is not the girl who you want to mess up with!" and laughed.
He too laughed.
Seeing him smiling like that I thought, 'I want to be there beside him and be the reason for all his smiles.' Sorry. If I'm too cheesy. Hahaha. Beside him, I think and speak like an idiot.
I thought if I hang out with him, I can find what he likes and present it to him tomorrow.
I asked, "Hey! I still didn't thank you yet! Do you want anything in return?"
He took a glimpse at his phone and said, "Let's have hotpot!"
"Yes! I'm hungry", he caressed his stomach.
I burst into a laugh and said, "I know the best place for the best hotpot!"
He nodded like a child.
We too walked to that place. It was an outdoor restaurant. I ordered a hotpot for two people.
"You always come with girls! Who is this handsome boy? I haven't seen him before with you. Is he your boyfriend?", My friend who is working there teased me.
"He's my classmate."I grinned and smiled.
He said," A Friend."
I don't why but it hurts a little. But it's okay. I'm his friend now.
The hotpot came. The smell made me forget who I'm with and started to dig in.
I love this smile of his. I can see his smile all day. How can be handsome and cute at the same time?
We began to eat. He said about his club. I shared mine.
He finished the hotpot before me. How did he finish so fast? I know. I eat slowly when it comes to my favourite food.
He waited for me to finish mine.
We then left that place and began to walk. Out of curiosity, I asked him what kind of thing he likes if someone presents something. He said that anything is fine until it's from whom we're receiving from. Wow. That was so cute.
Before we parted in our ways, "I like hanging out with you! We'll do this often.", he said and left.
Am I dreaming?!?!
He said something sweet...All I did was stood there and nodded my head and started to walk on my way back home without a word.
At home, I looked at what I bought for him. I wrapped it cutely. I placed it on the table and went back to sleep waiting for tomorrow.
