Hi. My name is Adea. I'm thirteen years old and in the eighth grade. I have black hair and purple eyes and I'm an Angel, too! I'm currently walking from school by myself. I like to walk to and from school by myself, most of the time. Why? Because it gives me time to think about my school life.
I'm in a class of twenty-one; sixteen girls and five boys. We were taught by Aoi-sensei. He was a good teacher. He looked young for his age. I once accidentally called him "Onii-san". I was so embarrassed! Aoi-sensei had blonde hair tied up in a bun. He had light skin and looked really strong. I was actually kind of scared of him because of it. However, despite his looks, he's super-duper nice. I like his class.
Although his class wasn't what I was always thinking about. Sometimes, and this happens on accident I swear, I've been caught up in thinking about a certain boy in my class. He was really quiet and doesn't usually smile unless he thought something was funny. Even when he did, you could hardly see it. He was very smart. He's probably the smartest in our class. I've seen his scores on assignments and they were amazing. And he treats them like they're nothing! During class, I sit next to him in the back of the room. I sometimes stop paying attention to the teacher and glance at the boy to my right, silently admiring him. He always looked out the window, yet at the same time, he'd jot down notes. He's the only boy I know that can effectively multitask. I take a closer look at his appearance. He had a big head of black spiky hair. How I'd resist just raking my fingers through it I'll never know, but I can't stop fantasizing about it! He has blue eyes that remind me of the ocean. So... pretty... He's usually wearing a red jacket over a black shirt and navy blue shorts. He has two black wristbands with light blue stripes. From my perspective, he was too good-looking. Oh, right! I never told you his name. Kuro. His name is Kuro, and I love him.
I'm not afraid to admit (or at least to you readers) that I'm definitely in love with him. But I'm not the only one; just about every girl in my class has a crush on him. I don't think he likes them back, myself included. One of you are probably suggesting that I go talk to him(or maybe you're not and I'm just suggesting stuff out of context). I can't. The reason being that he likes to be by himself a lot(A/N: He's a recluse). I don't know how to approach someone so distant... What do I do?!
Usually, when I have problems like these, I go straight to my best friend, Kuroko. She's a lot smarter than I give her credit for(don't tell her I said that, though). She's really... outgoing sometimes, but in the end she's there when I need her. And you better believe that I need her often when it comes to her "Onii-chan". Yep, that's right; Kuro and Kuroko are brother and sister(the fact that their names are so similar is a dead giveaway). I didn't believe it at first because they're so different. Kuroko's always puts herself out there and isn't afraid to speak her thoughts, yet her brother's so calm and quiet and doesn't talk to anyone unless spoken to. It's hard to tell.
Anyways, I went to Kuroko and told her about my love problem,. But instead of helping me, she says "If you and Onii-chan grow up and get married, then we can actually become sisters! That would be awesome!" I just facepalmed and walked away for not even the sister of my love interest can tell me how to get to his heart. I inwardly sighed as I turned the corner to the road near the docks. The setting sun made the water seem sparkly. It was so pretty. I decided to go and sit by the docks and view the sunset. My feet were dangling as I sat on the edge. I closed my eyes and let out a breath I didn't know I held. This quiet moment to myself was interrupted when I heard someone talk.
"Hey." the voice said. It sounded like a boy's voice. I turned around to see who it was. As soon as I saw his face, my heart started beating really fast.
It... It was... K-K-K-Kuro-kun?! Never in my immortal life did I expect to run into him! What do I do? What should I say? Haaaaaauuu!
Still staring at me with that inexpressive face, he suddenly spoke again. "Scoot over. I wanna sit there." His voice sent shivers down my spine. I was too lost in the moment that I almost didn't notice him move. I scooted to my right a bit, allowing him a spot to sit. He showed no hesitation in sitting next to me. Should I be feeling this way? I didn't even have to look in a mirror to know that my face is really red. I was starting to calm down until Kuro-kun turned his head to look at me with those blue eyes of his. Why was he born so handsome? He raised an eyebrow as if questioning me until he actually did.
"What's wrong with you?" he asked. I couldn't properly answer and I just stuttered. "I'm... uh... oh... I... I..."
He then smiled slightly and if I heard correctly... just laughed? He laughed! Before I could say anything, he continued.
"It's okay. You don't have to tell me." he said while turning his head back to the crystal clear water. "By the way, do you come here often?" he asked
"N-No..." I shyly answered.
"Hmm... I come here everyday after school. Kuroko usually meets me here and we walk home together. This is actually the place I go to clear my head. I'd think about what I did or didn't do, what to do later, and most importantly what I want to be in the future." he started as he stood up, looking at the sea. I decided to continue this conversation as I was actually quite curious.
"What do you want to be when you grow up?" I asked. Kuro-kun closed his eyes for a few seconds and then turned to me.
"I want... I want to grow strong, really strong. Then, I'll leave here and go see the rest of this world. I wanna go out and learn everything about our world, and when I finish, I'll come back and tell my family and friends all about it. Just staying in one place can be boring. Nothing changes. I don't want to live in such a one dimensional place." he said. I was awestruck. I didn't know Kuro-kun had such a big goal in life. He was truly amazing. I think I've fallen in love with him all over again.
"Hm... Here I am just suddenly telling you my personal stuff when I don't even know you. What's your name, now?" he turned to me.
"Oh... M-me? I... My name is Adea." I answered. Yeah, way to stay cool, me. Real nice...
"Okay, then. Adea, I have one last question for you." he said as he sat back down.
"If you want, maybe you could stop by our house for a visit. Kuroko and I would like that. Her especially." he said with another one of his barely visible smiles.
My heart skipped a beat and my face turned as red as it could possibly get. He... Kuro-kun... had just invited me to come to his house! Sure, Kuroko would be there, but this is also where the man of my dreams lives. Numerous fantasies played in my head, but I quickly shook them off as I saw Kuro-kun leaving.
"Oh, wait. Where are you going?" I asked, but quickly covered my mouth and blushed out of embarrassment.
"Kuroko's here. I gotta split." he said and surely enough, she was running towards the docks, waving.
"Uh, before you go, I just wanna ask. Why did you want me to visit your place?" I asked out of curiosity. He stopped and then turned his head to the side, looking at me.
"Well, isn't it obvious?" he started. "It's because we're friends now, right?" What he did next surprised me.
He actually smiled at me. It wasn't just a small smile you could barely see, but a full-blown, genuine smile. I didn't know he could smile like that! He then winked at me and turned away, leaving to meet up with his sister. Even after I couldn't see them anymore, I just stood dumbfounded at the events that happened today: I met up with Kuro-kun at these very docks, I actually TALKED with Kuro-kun while looking at the ocean, I got to know a little bit about Kuro-kun, and best of all, Kuro-kun SMILED at me and said we're friends. I held my hand close to my heart which was beating fast and muttered to no one in particular;
