The love triangle - chapter 4

"K-Keith?! What are you doing here?!" I blurted out at the guy who was standing in front of me.
"Well, sorry for going to the I disturbing you that much?" He answered with a casual tone.
"Eh, no...not really..", I mumbled. "Anyway, thanks for taking the box down for me..", I said and streched out my hand towards him, waiting for him to give it to me.
"Who said I took it down for you?" He answered while showing a grin on his face. It made me annoyed so I answered him back with a irritated voice. "Well, you asked me if that was the box I was reaching for.."
"Yeah, but I didn't say that I was going to give it to you."
"But I asumed you were going to since you took down the box of snacks that I was going to buy."
"Well, I'm not giving it to you." He answered shortly, and then continued while grinning again- "..but if you ask me, maybe I can give you one~"
Bastard!" I thought while I watched him walking to the cashier. Since I was done shopping as well I followed him and when I came out from the store he was leaning against the wall, waiting for me.
"Did you want a doughnut?" He asked. I stopped in front of the entrance and looked at him. "No thank you." I answered shortly. I really wanted one, but I couldn't bring myself to accept the offer. It felt like he saw right through me, because even when I declined his offer he took out a doughnut and held it towards me.
"Take it." He said and looked at me in the eyes. I was completely caught by his gaze and couldn't resist any longer so I accepted the snack with a thanks.

We walked together for about five minutes in silence when I broke it because I couldn't stand the tense air surrounding us.
"Hey, I have a question.." I started.
"Go ahead."
"Why did you put up such a fake smile today at school? ..oh, and also..why are you following me?"
"You're lying." Is all what he answered. I looked up at him stunned. "What?"
"You said you wanted to ask me a question. You asked two", he said and looked back at me.
"Shut up and just answer my questions!" I said while raising my voice a bit annoyed.
"To answer your question about today at school, it's complicated. That's why I'm doing it. But since you already know that my real personality isn't like that I feel like can relax when I'm with you." "
Relax? What's that all about? But since he understood that I know he's faking his personality I guess he rememberes that I bumped into him the other dayand he yelled at me." I thought. He smirked at me before continuing. "..and I'm not following you, I live in this direction."
"Ah, okay.." I answered and that's the end of our conversation.
We walked for about another five minutes when we reached the street where my house is located. When we reached it I stopped and pointed at the house, "Well, this is where I live.." He looked at me quite surprised. "It is?" I nodded as an answer. He turned away his face and chuckled a bit, then turned it back towards me.
"I guess that makes us neighbours then."
"Eh?" Is all I could answer to that. Then he pointed at the house across the street, where the new family have moved into this morning.
"Me and my family are the ones that moved in here today. Such a coincidence, huh?" He grinned. "Well, see you tomorrow then!" and with that he walked across the road and then went inside into his new home.

I walked home as well, and when I came inside I walked straight towards the stairs and into my room although my mom said it was dinner time. I just needed a few minutes to let the news sink in so I laid on my bed and recalled the past three minutes when he said he was our new neighbour. I couldn't believe it at first, but after thinking about it, it makes some kind of sense since a new family were moving in this morning and Keith also arrived at school as a new student today.
Ahh, I can't believe I have him as my new neighbour..what a pain!"

The love triangle - chapter 3

"Natalie, don't you think that new guy is pretty hot??" Emeline said a bit excited and looked at me smiling while she took a bite of the sandwich.

"Nope, not a bit." I answered and took a bite of mine as well while looking in another direction in the classroom to show her I wasn't really interested.

"Waah! That's so cold!" She blurted out with a dissapointed face and then looked over her shoulder to see the new guy that sat at the other end of the classroom, surrounded by people, both guys and girls. "He's quite popular..although I can understand why, he has the looks and he's kind..and I really love that smile of his!"

"The smile, huh.." I mumbled for myself and recalled the smile he showed me this morning and then the attitude he had towards me last saturday.

"The smile he has on his lips is surely fake. There's no way a person can smile that much as he's done from the morning to lunchbreak..but why does he fake it?" I thought and then finished my lunch.



I was laying on my bed reading the last book of the Hunger Games trilogy when I heard mom shouting to me from the kitchen downstairs.
"Natalie, can you please go to the grocery store? We've run out of milk and I'm in the middle of cooking the dinner right now..!"
"But I was just
about to do my homework!" I shouted back although it was a lie. I wasn't going to start with it until after dinner. I flipped the page as I heard her shouting again. ”But the grocery store is only ten minutes from here, I'm sure you have some time over!” I just sighed and got out of my bed. I walked down the staircase and towards the front door. I put my shoes on and opened the door.
“I'll get going then..!” I shouted to my busy mom that stood next to the stove.
“Thank you, Natalie!”

Because it was almost closing time, I was alone inside the supermarket, or so I tought. I grabbed two packages of milk from the dairy sector and then I stopped by the snacks, looking if there was anything worth buying that could satisfy my desire for something sweet.
My eyes caught a lonely, pink box which contained doughnuts with strawberry glaze. I immediately decided to buy it, but the thing is that it was standing on the top shelf, which is unreachable for me. I stood on my toes and reached my hand for the pink box, but it was futile.
Suddenly someone else grabbed the box I had set my eyes on and a man said with a gentle voice-
"Is this what you wanted?" I stood there for a second, surprised by the persons appearence.
"Ah.." I started as I came to my senses again and turned around to face the man "..thank you for helping m-", but before I had the chance to finish the sentence I saw who this man was. It was none other than..
