I was thirteen. He sat next to me in Health class in seventh grade. Back then I avoided eye contact with most people, but he never wasted a moment that he could be staring at me. He used to tell me my hair smelled good, and he got jealous and stormed off whenever he saw me looking at my crush. I thought he was insane.
But that's how it was back then. I'll be sixteen in two months. People don't act like that anymore.
