[Short Story] Secretly in Love

I was lying on my bed at 10.30pm, I had school the next day so I wanted to sleep early. Suddenly, I felt an urge to send a message to my crush, so I did. He didn’t reply to me after 10 minutes so I placed my phone on the table beside my bed and attempt to fall asleep.

An hour later, my phone’s screen lit up and I grabbed my phone to see a reply from my crush. Excitedly, I typed a response. We talked for about two hours but most of the time, I was just waiting for his reply. Getting the feeling I was being bothersome, I ended with a long message and a ‘goodnight’. He replied with a short message and I switched off my phone.

I kissed my phone before placing it on the table again. With a silly grin on my face, I tossed and turned on my bed, squealing as silent as I could. It would be nice to know if he feels the same. That’s impossible though.

Being in love feels great but I am just having my mini fantasy. It’s not real and I know it won’t be. Let me enjoy this moment as I continue to be crazily in love with you, in secret.

(Then again I was like 12, such cringe)

I wish

I wish
I was impulsive
I was direct
I was brave

I wish
I was impressive
I was pretty
I was cute

I wish
I wish
I wish

Confess before it’s too late. Even if there is a big chance of getting rejected.
