Little to late
I had this dream last night and thought I would share it with anyone willing to read it.
"Do you really beleive he does?" I whispered into the cold air.
We had snuck out of the large building. We slept in that building. The people who worked here and ran it, considered it a camp. It was so fancy it felt more like a country club for rich people who go golfing on the weekends. They still had a lake and activitys like camp but it felt to rich to be just any camp.
"You and him were both flirting in the water earlier." You whispered back and I could sense a flicker of excitment.
" I can't beleive he waits till the "End of the Year" trip to show affection." I said letting out a sigh and gazing back out across the lake.
"Your joking right? He hasn't stopped since January." You said almost yelling now.
"Your going to get us in trouble with your loud mouth."I said, giving you the best wink I could in the dark.
"What are you going to do?" You asked.
I sat there thinking letting my feet dangle of the dock. We sat silently listening to the water lap against the shore. I took a deep breath in and just looked at you.
"Your not gonna do anything, are you?" You said almost angrily.
I shook my head and spoke, "Why start something we can't finish."
"But you both are so perfect together it just isn't fair to-" You said talking faster as you went.
" I said no! I am not risking whatever friendship we could have in high school," I lowered my voice and softened my tone." It's just not fair to either of us. Even if he actually does."
You sighed and stood up. I sat, stranded out here in the cold. A tear slid down my face followed by another. I looked down at the water and started sobbing. I pulled my knees to me for my own protection. I needed to learn to not have boys be my life. My grandma told me boys were bad news, and she was right.
