I don’t know if it’s the lack of sleep from last night -- I finally fell asleep shortly after 4:00 AM and had to get up maybe only 3 hours later (I need to be up early to catch the bus to Sudbury, which is where my high school is. It takes about an hour to get there) -- but I’ve been a real wreck today. Made a huge ass of myself, too.
I waited for Sarah in front of her locker. Skipped a bunch of classes too. Just planted myself there and waited for her. For hours. I think she’d seen me a few times and purposely avoided heading down the hallway. But it was in the early afternoon, when the hallway was busy and I guess she couldn’t see me through the crowd when she approached.
She was startled, I think, to see that I was still standing there.
She stopped, just a foot in front of me and stared.
Then she turned, without saying anything, and started walking away.
“Sarah!” I called out after her, my voice breaking, tears flowing freely down my face. “Please, don’t ignore me any longer! Please talk to me! Sarah!”
She just walked away and I sank down on my knees, my face in my hands and cried.
I didn’t look up again until the hallways were cleared. I just couldn’t face all the people who’d seen me break down like that.
Damn Sarah. Why does it hurt to love her so much?

Peter your last statement reminds me of a porno movie I once saw. In the movie, one hooker asks another, "What is love?" The other hooker replies, "I can't tell you what love is, but I do know that it hurts." I can't believe that I can quote a line from a porn movie but yes love hurts.

Peter, maybe its time to back off of Sarah for a bit? She's probably getting creeped out. No offense, but I am too. Just trying to help.
