June 8, 6:30 AM
I wake up with an alarm blaring in my ear. I'm panting, that was awful, what the hell was that? I get up and go to the bathroom. I brush my hair, long pieces of red hair fall into the sink, I pick it up and throw it away, I brush my teeth, and wash my face. I go downstairs, make breakfast, get some orange juice, run down to the bus stop, and wait,
"Kel!" I look behind me to see my mom running after me
"Ma? What's wrong?"
"You forgot your lunch, hun"
"Oh, thanks, ma." Once the bus came along I get on and started walking down the aisle, everyone staring at me, laughing at me, probably because my mom just ran to give me my lunch, Leo was trying to catch my eye, I see that he saved a spot for me, so I sat down. Holy shit, that was Leo in my dream I mean just by looking at his hair I realized it has to be him, his body posture, his tall and lean body shape...
"Kel? Are you even listening?"
"Ah. Sorry about that Leo I was daydreaming"
"No worries" and then he started talking about the band that he is going to see. I have always wanted to see a band perform, but my dad doesn't approve of concerts so I can't buy tickets before they sold out. Leo keeps on chatting my ear off and I ended up falling asleep.
The bus stops and so does my slumber, I woke up on Leo's shoulder, his arm around my shoulders and he has me pulled close to him. I tap on his arm and he jumps, pulling his arm away from my shoulders in the process, he looks away and probably blushes, I don't know.
We hop off the bus and walk to the field where the last-day assembly will be held. It's 70 degrees outside so it's pretty nice for a day in Minnesota, especially for a spring in May.
Once we get to the field all of the kids are talking about what the student council president is going to do for the last day of school since he said he had a surprise. The funny thing is, Leo is the president and he is dedicated, he won't even tell Milly. Milly has been Leo's best friend since childhood. He's also friends with Sarah, I wouldn't say I like either of them but since I'm stuck with them, they are my only friends.
Since it's the last day of school, all of the students get to go outside. As soon as the bell rang I started heading outside, I see Milly first hanging out with Leo so I wave and try to get their attention Leo notices me and puts on a big smile and yells "HEY KEL, OVER HERE!" I run over and start chatting to Leo. Once Sarah comes outside she starts texting Milly gossip. I stare over at Sarah's phone. I caught a glimpse of her phone and it said "Kel would hate it if that happened, I like it." It was only seconds before she shoved my face away she glares at me and then texted back. Leo seems dazed and out of it, he's as pale as a ghost. I put my hand on his forehead and my forehead against my hand, he's warm, maybe not a fever but warm. He closes his eyes and starts leaning in, I back off immediately
"Hey, need some water? You seem pale and you're a little warm." I say awkwardly
"Oh, that would help a lot actually, I forgot my water bottle at home, silly me, on the worst day too." I give him my water bottle, he practically chugged it
"I'm impressed, I didn't think you were that thirsty"
"Heh, sorry, I honestly thought I was going to pass out, it was refreshing thanks." he gives me the water bottle and I finish it off. We walk back. Sarah and Milly are laughing about something, they walk right past me to whisper something to Leo, he turns pale white all over again, not sure why but not my problem for now.
It's ten minutes till the big last day of school presentation. I'm nervous since I'm my class representative. I have to do a whole presentation on how awesome my class is and how our class idea, having class pets, is superior to the other classes' ideas, It isn't if I'm being honest. I mean other classes care about this presentation. Everybody in my class knows each other or at least talks to each other and they honestly could care less about this. Since we all know each other we just thought of something we all like, pets. Anyways, once all the classes before me are finished I have to walk out onto the stage and present. I'm not happy since I am very socially awkward. I don't want to deal with this.
All of the classes are done other than my class since my teacher's last name is Zwitechner. After being in her class for a whole school year I still can't pronounce it. Anyways, I step out behind the curtains, I get blinded by the lights, I mean holy smokes, how am I supposed to see? Once my eyes adjust to the lighting a teacher hands me a microphone and wishes me luck. I walk towards the middle and lecture everyone on why we should have class pets. To be honest I felt like the dumbest person in the room. I was cringing at myself. Once I finish and leave the stage Leo pats me on the back and says "Good job!" I thank him and he walks up onto the stage to announce that the school will start doing dances. Everyone freaks out and starts to yell, I'm guessing that was what he had planned for us, not bad Leo. The teachers calm the crowd and give a few final announcements and then they dismiss us, I ride the bus home, and Leo gets a ride home from his mom's and says "I'll pick you up at the bus stop, just wait for me." He smiles and waves goodbye before his mom starts driving away.
The bus drops me off and I check my phone for any texts. He sends a text to a group chat saying Leo, Milly, Sarah, and I are going to have a fun day. I waited for Leo to come and pick me up and get the girls, we are going to an amusement park, a lovely day for that since the weather is awesome right now.
