(I'm back yallz!!! It's been a while. I had some personal problems. But I'm back now!!)
"I'm not cute. I'm manly as heck!" He yells.
"Mm!" My friend, Hae-Young, sound unconvinced as our friend, Kunmipook or as many call him, Bam Bam, tried to justify why he isn't cute....which he is. We were at our lunch table in the crowded cafeteria.
"Kun, you are cuter than a baby in puppy footsie pajamas." Hae-Young bite my apple.
"Wait! How can anything be cuter than that?" I asked, baffled.
She pointed at Kun (my nickname for him since I couldn't pronounce his real name when we met). I nodded in understanding.
"Ah! I see it." I muse.
"Aish!! Not you too!" He blushed.
That's weird. I wonder why he always blushes whenever I complimented him. It happened ever since we first met back in freshman year, when he was the new exchange student from Thailand.
He was adorable and lonely...plus he was quite short....
Can't say that now. The boy shot up like a rocket but his baby-ish looks remained. We constantly teased him about it but I did it to hide the fact that I was crushing on him so hard. I doubt that he knew....I tease him way too hard for him to know.
The bell rang and we all gathered our trays to take to the trash dump. All the while, teasing him about his cuteness. Poking his cheeks and doing aegyo or whatever he calls it. He tried to get us to stop but I knew he secretly loved it.
"Bye guys. See you guys after school." Hae-Young ran off as we headed for our next class. Kun and I shared our next class.
"So uhh...hey, (Y/N)? Can I ask you something?" He put his hands in his pockets.
"Sure. What is it?" I asked as we stopped by my locker.
"I just wanted to know if you...." And just then, I opened my locker and a heart shaped letter fell out.
I kneeled to pick it up and opened it. Inside read:
I have had these feelings for a while now. But I have finally worked up the courage to ask you. Would you please meet me on the roof after school?
What the heck?
"What's that?" Kun asked looking over my shoulder. When he saw what it was his face fell.
"Oh...." He mutters. I look up at him worried.
"Are you sure you're okay?" I ask him.
"Y-yeah. I'm fine...I gotta go, I'll see you later." Bam runs off in the other direction.
Woah. Okay. That was very weird.
I close my locker and walk to my class. Maybe he'll tell me what's wrong later.
For the rest of the day, Bam has been avoiding me. I can't lie, I feel a bit hurt. He's my best friend. I don't know what I did wrong.
I'm heading to the staircase; head held down. I miss him.
"(Y/N)!" I feel someone grab my wrist. I turn around to see Bam Bam behind me. He pulls me in and hugs me.
"กรุณา ไม่ ไป ฉัน:ขอทานคุณ." He mutters in my hair. "......โปรด......"
"What?" I say into his chest, confused. He's speaking in Thai. I can't understand him.
"Please don't go. I love you. Please." He cries. I feel tear drops on my head. "I love you so much. I have always loved you. If I let you go up there, I will be giving you to someone else. And I can't live with that."
"Bam?" He pulls back and looks me in the eyes. Tears stream down his face.
"I know saying those thing could ruin our friendship if you don't feel the same way but... I love you. I really do." He confesses. "I know we bicker a lot and tease each other but I really have feelings for you. Feelings I denied for so long. But now, I realized just how bad of an idea that was. I could lose you to someone else and I'm not okay with that. Please. Please don't go up there." He pleaded.
I lean up and kiss him.
BAM BAM'S POV:
She kissed me. Am I dead? I wouldn't be shocked if I was. She pulled back and looked me in the eyes.
"Do you know just how happy I am to hear you say that?" She asks. "I won't go up he here because...I love you too. I have liked you since you transfered."
"Why d-didnt you tell me?" I asked, dazed.
"How could I?" She looks away. "You were the new kid and a really good friend of mine. I didn't want to come off as that creepy girl you met on your first day at an American school." She rubbed the back of her neck, embarrassed.
I couldn't help but smile. "I didn't want to seem like that weird Thai kid that had a crush on the first girl that has ever talked to him other than his sister." I shrug.
"Wait." She turns around. "I was your first girl friend?"
"Well....I'm hoping you would be." I imply.
She blushes. "Well, I-I.....I would like that." She says finally.
"REALLY?!?" I yell, causing the creepy janitor guy down the hall to look at us funny.
"Really." She smiled.
"Starting now?" I hoped I didn't sound too eager, as I held my hand out for her to hold.
"Starting now." She grabs my hand and we walked out of the school.
