He had loved her since 2nd grade. Lucy Blank. He had basically devoted himself to her..She had blonde hair, that went to her shoulders. Her eyes were a smooth, mossy green, her lips looked so pink and soft..
He had finally gathered enough courage to ask her out, he was walking to her apartment, giddy and nervous. She answered the door--it was the last day of middle school, by the way--she looked excited, hyper even. "Alcott!" She yelled, happy tears spreading through her eyes. "Guess where I'm going to live?"
"W-where?" She was leaving?
"Japan! I'm going to Japan!" She was hopping around, her hair was in two braids and they bounced along her back.
"What?! Is this some kind of joke?"
"No, silly!" She only called him silly when she was happy. "This is real! I got excepted to a really-hard-to-get-in-academy! It's big, and its in the Ikebukoro district of Japan!"
His eyes were filling with hot tears, he was afraid he was going to let them overflow, like a bath left running after the person left the room.
"When are you going?"
He nodded. "I have to go." When he got home he let the tears overflow.
He vowed to himself that he would confess himself before he left, but he never gathered up the courage. He let her go, and they never spoke to eachother again, since than.
He regrets it. He smiles on the outside at school, he seems happy and care free.
But it couldnt get more wrong than that.
