“What?” I incomprehensibly asked, having stopped crying at this point. Is Michael possibly trying to hit on me? “Because…”
“Because you don’t have feelings for me right? Everyone feelings matter under no circumstances.” That was a strange way to make his point get across. “Why do you think he came to this amusement park?”
“Because he likes Tia?”
“No, because you asked him. If her, me or anyone else would’ve asked, there’s a ninety-nine percent chance he would have cussed us out.” More like a one hundred percent guarantee for you, but the world is a funny place where anything, such as that one percent chance of him telling you yes, is possible.
“Does that mean he likes me?”
“Doesn’t it sound like it?”
“Yeah. Well… I don’t know; he’s weird.”
“Then why don’t you go fight for him?”
“Tia doesn’t matter in this situation! It’s his choice to decide which one of you he wants to be with, not hers. Hell, he might decline both of you.”
“But nothing! Now go find him and tell him how you feel.”
“But nothing! Now get going before I tell him myself.”
I walked away slowly, slouching my arms and head downward. I can’t believe I just got scolded by Michael of all people.
It was about half an hour before I finally found Tia and Tre. They were walking towards the exit, talking. He shook is head no and it appeared her soul was ripped out. Her body language was the one of someone who just had their heart broken. She reached up, hugged him before pointing in my direction and walked away.
Did he just deny her?
He ran over to me and immediately started to complain. “And where were you at this whole time? I’ve been through hell and back …”
“What did you say to her?” I sai...
... middle of paper ...
...and no man would want to put up with you if you continue to act this way.”
“That’s none of your…”
“Why does that matter when she’s with me?”
“Why does what anyone else think or say matter when I’m with her? I love her for who she is and wouldn’t have her any other way, so fuck what others think.”
Why are you saying this?
“As long as she doesn’t have that damn ugly depressing expression on her face, I’m alright with the way she is.”
That’s not fair. Why can’t you just let me be mad at you? You always say the right things that makes me lo…
I dropped to the ground and couldn’t get up. I had lost my legs.
“You two weirdos deserve each other,” the man stuttered, stumbling off. “I don’t got time to deal with y’all crazy asses.”
Tre let out a sigh of relief before turning towards me. “That was close. You know… Why the hell are you on the ground?”
“I can’t move.”

- His eyes opened slowly as he was finally regaining consciousness for the long night of being ambushed and then shot. He saw a ceiling fan going around as he realized that he wasn 't outside anymore. An old man 's voice of surprise rang out, "You 're awake. How about that." The courier knew that he was somewhere else other than home or at heaven 's door. He got out of bed as fast as he could before the old man stopped him. "Whoa, easy there. Easy." the old man said as he reached his hand towards him, "You been out cold a couple of days now." A couple of days.... [tags: Debut albums, English-language films, Doctor]

- “No you don’t, Dean. You stay right there. Mm. Don’t look so afraid. It’s no big deal. You’re just naked. Granted we’re all staring at you, but why should that bother you so much. In fact, I want every boy who’s already naked out here where we can see you. Now.” Shelly took the initiative, walking along to look between the rows of lockers to make sure they complied. She had a blast pointing them out. “You, Mark. Kent. Oh god, Chris, I love it when you’re naked. Looks like Arthur’s coming along too.” The four naked boys all crept out where they could be ogled....

- Maxen glanced his hands folded on the table and chuckled. “He seems like a fine young man. I took to him immediately.” A painful, interminable silence ensued. Both Audra and Maxen took awkward sips from their goblets. He fussed with his cloak clasp while she wiped away imaginary dust on the dining table. Perhaps after all these years apart, this was all they had left, a little cordial yet halting conversation. “Well, Maxen, why don’t you tell me about –” Before she finished her sentence, Maxen was out of his seat and scrambling around the table to her side....

His candle suddenly burned brightly as if he willed it to do it, and it wafted the scent of banana into the air that lingered. “Who will pick for me.” “I shall pick for you.” said Murray answering for everyone. “Now let’s see…” he then said as he gazed out into the yards and street at the different groups of trick-or-treaters. “Army guy, no.

- remember those Friday nights in high school going to the football games. Listening to the fans roaring in the crowd and the cheerleaders chanting cheers on the sidelines for their team. While eating nachos from the concession stands, I enjoy the halftime show done by the dance team and marching band. The best part of it all is winning the game, celebrating with friends, and before the night ends listening to the sound of your school 's fight song in the background. I do not know about you, but these were my favorite events to attend during high school.... [tags: High school, Friendship, Middle school]
