My smile faded, "Oh, um..okay.." I nodded and saw him leave without looking back.
..Was it something I said?
I dropped my half finished apple onto my tray and pushed it aside, not feeling hungry that much anymore.
Cealot was a nice person, a good friend too. Compared to the people who hang out with me he was the only person I preferred as a real friend. I never said those thoughts to anyone and I planned to keep it that way. I couldn't bare to hurt other people's feelings but the thought always occurred to me every time.
..Were they my real friends or people who liked me because of my reputation here?
I never doubted Cealot when we first met today, he seemed to like me for the person I was on the inside and not the outside like others would usually do.
It felt real..
He never seemed bored when we both talked today, but very happy. He had that glint in his eyes when he looked at me and when he touched my hand not so long ago...
Wait...Was that love?
My heart skipped a beat at the thought and my eyes grew wide in surprise.
All this time..
Was he trying to make me notice his feelings?
How could I be so stupid!
I face palmed and sighed. The look in his eyes, the way he asked if he could sit next to me at breakfast. Weren't those all hints?
My heart thudded.
I think I feel the same feelings for him as he does for me..
I grabbed my tray and got up, walking over to the trash bin and throwing it in. As I exited the cafeteria to head to class early I spotted a poster for that upcoming dance.
Maybe I can ask him to go with me! I thought happily but another thought struck me like lightning.
Would he say yes? Or should I let him ask me?
I heard the first period bell ring suddenly and sprinted to class before I was tardy.
I guess I would have to figure that out later..
