Her Go Part 1 | 2
"I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU! "
Jeanne's eyes were wide and filled with tears. She
was afraid of what he would say to her.
Jeanne was a nerdy girl with thick glasses. She was a junior
in her middle school. She was in love with the hottest guy
in the entire school.
And now, she told him that she loved him.
"Haha! Shut up. Nobody would like you! Who do
you think I am?"
Jeanne had feared he would say something like that.
She was devastated. She started running. She didn't
want to face him ever again. All these thoughts and
feelings ran through her head. She continued running
until she bumped into something.
"Hey, whats up?"
She had bumped into James.

"What?! I'll Go Tell Him! Where Does He Get That Nerve!
Sometimes, I Don't Know Why I'm His Best Friend! That's
It! I'm Going To Go Beat Him Up!"
"NO! James! Don't do it! It's not his fault.
I was the foolish one to think we can ever date."
"No, it's OK! I should go."
"JEANNE... James grabbed her by the wrist as
she was getting up. Don't go..."
Jeanne stared into his eyes and felt so warm and
fuzzy; a feeling she didn't feel for a long time.
She looked away awkwardly. She was staring into his
eyes for such a long time that there was a awkward
moment of silence between them. Then, she gently took
her wrist out of James grasp and slowly walked away
from him with tears in her eyes.
"Dammit, James! You really did it this time! Jeanne
just left you! And why are you trying to hit on her?"
James walked back home with his hands stuffed in his pocket.
Thoughts of Jeanne ran through his head. He didn't want Jeanne
to be hurt by a jackass. He wanted to show her that he loved her.
He wanted to show her he cared. But Jeanne seemed to just ignore
him. Just as he was deep in thoughts, someone appeared in front
of him. James stopped in his tracks to find himself starring at
"Oh, I'm so sorry... I'm very, very sorry about
knocking into you and leaving without saying a word.
I'm sorry. Can I repay you somehow?"
"Jeanne", James said, lifting her chin.
Jeanne looked through his soft eyes and almost melted.
"James..." said Jeanne. Suddenly, she started
crying. James was shocked.
"J-Jeanne? What's wrong?"
"I' m s-s-such a f-fool! H-How c-c-can I e-ever
th-think t-that E-Eric loves me?"
"Jeanne... I would not call that foolish... I
actually admire you for having the guts to confess
your love. However, crying about him is indeed foolish.
Jeanne, don't cry about that jerk. Here, let's go
to my house. We're right in front of it!" Jeanne
James led her to the bathroom.
"Take off your glasses. We need to wipe those
tears off." He said with a smile. Jeanne took
them off without a word. James turned on the water
and wetted a washcloth. Then, he gently wiped her
tears off her face.
"James.. Do you love me?" James was startled
by this comment.
"Why do you ask me that?"
"Because... it seems like it. Do you?"
"Haha! Jeanne, you are my friend."
"Oh... OK. I think I'm not so teary now. Thanks,
"No problem. Do you want something to drink?"
"Um... OK." She followed James out the door.
He handed her a glass of orange juice and they sat
down outside on a bench.
"Are you going to be all right?"
"Yeah... Thanks. But I don't think I'll be able
to face him again."
"When he calls you something bad, just yell my
"OK." she said with a small laugh.
"But what are you going to do when I call you?"
"I'm going to beat him up!"
"What if everyone starts hating you?"
"It doesn't matter. As long as the one girl I
love is happy."
"Ooh, James! You like someone?"
"Yeah... Guess? I'll never tell you until you
get the right answer."
"Hmm... is it Amy? She's pretty! What about Lauren?
She's nice and quiet. Or is it Becca? She's generous.
Or maybe it's Courtney! She's not all that nice though..."

After a few tries, she gave up.
"Who is it? I'm dying of curiosity!"
"Let's see... She has glasses... She's in love with Eric
and she's sitting right next to me!" Jeanne let out a small
"M-Me?" James nodded. Jeanne almost passed out.
"James! I have declared you crazy." James started laughing.
"Why won't you believe me? I like you... I want you to be
"But you're the second hottest guy in school! What if everyone
criticizes you for your bad taste in girls?"
"I don't care. I told you. As long as the one girl I love
is happy." he said, smiling.
"No, really, James. No games this time. All serious... All
"Yeah... I know."
"Oh my god..." Jeanne said, covering her mouth with
"Jeanne, I just want to be the right guy for you." he
said while putting his arm around her shoulder. She leaned against
him and for the first time, she felt accepted by someone special.
"But, James! Why did you say I was just a friend before?"
"Umm! I didn't feel like it was time yet." Jeanne nodded.
She knew how hard it was to say, "I love you."
She knew how nervous one would feel. And she knew how hard it
was to feel rejected.
"I understand, James. I'm just glad you told me. I'll think
"Jeanne, do you still like Eric?"
"What has he got that I don't?"
"I just don't know! I mean you two look the same! You guys
wear similar clothes! But I like Eric better."
"All right! I'll make him like you. He knows he's not going
to win in a fight." Jeanne wrapped him in her arms.
"James! I'm all right. You don't have to do all that."
And then he wrapped her in his arms.
