“Red lips and rosy cheeks, say you’ll see me again, even if it’s just in your wildest dreams.”

I smiled, then told him, “Look, I know I promised you that night that I will stay by your side whenever you need me to. And I know that I hugged you cause you wanted me to do so. But, can you forget about that night? Cause, I wasn’t supposed to do something like this at all.”

He paused for a while, then said, “Why?” I looked at him and said clearly, “Because you have a girlfriend and I…” “Wait, wait, wait… I have a girlfriend?! Who told you this?” I looked at him, “The girl that you used to explain the Chemistry lecture to!” I said. “What?!” He smiled, then continued, “Are you talking about the girl that used to match clothes colors with me?”

“Yes.” I said finally. He burst out laughing in a funny way. He was so cute, and I couldn’t bear this, so I asked, “What are you laughing at?” “Because this girl is my sister.” He answered me in a cute way. I looked at him shocked with no words, then smiled, wondering, “Your sister?!”

“Yes! My sister. I mean even if I had a girlfriend, I would do the same thing and explain the Chemistry lecture to her! But that girl is my little sister.” “Does this mean that you don’t…” “No, cute lady, I don’t have a girlfriend. And I’m not thinking of something like this, because I’m focusing on my classes just the same way you do. Probably that’s why you got my attention!”

A shiver ran out my whole body, then I smiled. “So, as everything is kinda clear now, do you mind me joining your basketball practice?” He asked me softly. “I mean, I’m not as professional as your team is.” I said. “I never was professional. None of us was. But you will soon be with a coach like me!” I smiled at him. It was the best Thursday I’ve had since I started my college classes.

On the next Thursday night, I didn’t go back home. I stayed in the college’s library writing down on the computer. It was about 9:00 PM, I started getting my stuff ready to go back home. While I was on my way to my car, I saw him sitting, laying his head back on the chair’s backrest, next to the university’s water sign. I smiled and approached him slowly so he wouldn’t hear me.

Then, I got closer and whispered in his left ear, “Can I sit next to you for a little bit, please?” Then he opened his eyes, keeping his head on the chair’s backrest, and didn’t move at all. He just smiled, looking at me with his ocean blue eyes and said, “You know that you are the only one who always makes me feel better?” I smiled at him.

Then sat next to him on the chair, asking, “Is everything okay?” He raised his head and turned towards me, looking at my rosy cheeks, wanting to talk but didn’t. So, he just looked at me. “Do you wanna walk?” I asked him. He smiled. Few seconds later, we started walking together, “You know? I didn’t choose this town, I dream of getting out, there’s just one who could make me stay. All my days.”

I looked at him and smiled deeply then continued, “From sprinkler splashes to fireplace ashes. I waited ages to see you there.” He smiled and continued, “I searched the party of better bodies. Just to learn that you never cared.” I smiled deeper showing my teeth then said, “You’re on your own, kid. You always have been.”
