A boy is walking home and a voice catches his attention.
I hear this from a distance.
I don't think it's intended for me so I continue walking.
I continue to continue walking.
"Hey you! What is your name?"
I look to put a face to the voice.
I blush and begin to walk a little faster.
"Are you're just going to ignore me?"
Of course I am,
But it is the opposite of what I want to do.
I just can’t manage.
I can't even get myself to look in her direction again.
My heart is beating so loudly.
I close my eyes and take a deep breath.
My face is so hot...
"Um, what are you doing?"
Curious, I open my eyes.
My feet had failed me.
My mind had lied to me.
I haven't moved since I heard the word "ignore".
"Come over here."
I want to, but all I can muster is to just stand there.
Standing and staring at my feet.
How can I say no to a please like that?
Before I decide to do so, my feet start to guide me in her direction.
With each step closer to her, my heart beats louder.
Again, I blush.
But this time,
It’s because I fear she can hear it.
