My heart skips a beat when you come close to me, and when you put your arms around me, I can’t breathe. I just want to stay that way, not wanting to let go off you.
But you leave… You let go off my hands, and turn away from me. You leave me scared. My mind goes blank. My heart-empty.
‘Kate wake up! George is back’ my sister screams into my ears and tugs at me to get up from the bed. For once I don’t mind cause it was George I was going to see.
‘That boy is some sight, don’t you think so?’ I say, peeping from my window.
What a way to start my morning! What a beautiful way.
‘Oh, you’ll get a better view of him tonight. Father has already invited him over for the bonfire’
‘I see.’ I smile and draw the curtains.
‘Come on Kate. You can’t run away from me all the time.” George pants as he finally catches up with me.
‘Someone as fit as you should not be huffing so easily. Where is your stamina gone now, huh?” I turn towards him and start walking backwards, throwing stones at him.
‘You know you can’t resist me. Why don’t you just give up, girl?’ He starts moving towards me once again.
“Wh..” I trip before I could complete my sentence and before long George was bent over me, his strong arms held me firmly, and his lips almost touched mine.
“Try this with some other girl Sir.” I snap, and push him off me. “Tomorrow, I’ll be gone Kate. You might not get me again.” He calls after me, as I run away once again.
