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!"
