(A.N: The story will now change to Riku’s point of view for the rest of the story as I have ran out of ideas on how to go on with my character and it will give a chance to bring Alex in a lot more)
I watched as mum left the room then I slowly turned my attention back to Alex who had his face back into the book he was reading before. He is a really nice person but doesn’t say much I think he maybe a shy person when it comes to new people. It did take him a little bit to talk to me for the first time. After I shook the thoughts out of my head I realised I was still staring at him, I blushed lightly and looked away from him. I sat there silently for a bit until I felt someone tap my shoulder, I turned to look at them and noticed it was Alex who was tapping me “you ok Riku?” he asked with his soft voice. I nodded at him and we got back to do our assignment, we did it for about an hour to two before he said goodbye and went home.
The next day I rocked up to school and was searching around for Alex when I found him standing by the front gates waving to a car that was driving off. I walked over to him “Moring Alex” I slipped off my tongue, he turned and looked at him “Oh morning Riku” he replied while smiling. I looked down at the road he was staring down before and asked “Who were you just waving at?” He blinked a few before looking at me again “Oh that was my mother.” I smiled at him and we both walked to home room together. We sat and chatted at little to each other until the others and the teacher arrive as the bell went.
After home room we went our separate ways, Alex went to his English class and I went off to maths. After maths class was over I headed my way over to the library as fast as I could to meet back up with Alex again. Once I arrived in the library I found Alex sitting in the corner reading a book, I slowly made my way over to him. He must have heard me coming over because he had placed his book down and looked up at me. He smiled at him and I smiled back at him “Hey again Alex” I said as I sat down next to him. It looked like he was going to say something to me but he stopped and looked away blushing, I tipped my head confused. I leaned in closer to him to see what was wrong and the next thing that happened shocked me. To my surprise he had turned back around to face me and gave my lips a quick peck, I blushed hard and put my hand to my lips. I was still really shocked he had just given me my first kiss.
I looked at him as he was looking away while shaking “Everything ok Alex?” I asked him while patting his shoulder. He turned his attention back to me and answered with “You’re not mad at me for doing that to you?” I shook my head and hugged him “I have kind of liked you too for a little bit now.” As I said that I could see his eyes lighten up as he smiled and hugged me back. I looked down at him as he gave me a proper kiss this time which I was happy to return. After the kiss he looked at me with a confused but happy look on his face “Does this make us a couple?” he asked while sound very cute, I blushed at his voice “Yes, I guess it does” I responded as I hugged him tightly.
After our little lesson in the library, we moved outside and sat in the grass while hugging each other. We got a few looks from some of the students walking past and some were even saying things behind our backs but I didn’t care because I had Alex and he had me. I really enjoyed sitting on the grass with him, it felt like nobody else in the world matter to me right now. I looked down at Alex to find him asleep snuggled up to my side while I had my arm around him holding him close. He seemed really peaceful as he slept, I just watched him as he kept snuggled up to me.
Once recess was over I shook him lightly trying to wake him up which did work, he blinked a few times and looked up at me smiling. I smiled down at him “recess is over and we need to head to Science class now” I told him as I watched his smile turn to a frown as he got up and started to walk to class by himself. I watched confused for a bit then ran over to him “What was that all about?” I asked him, he kept walking not looking at me at all “I don’t like Science class, we are not partners in it and the one who is your partner has a crush on you and can make her dad get her whatever she wants” he responded while sounding very sad. I gave him a big hug and smiled softly “Don’t worry I won’t let her do anything to you” I said trying to reassure him. He smiled at me, gave my cheek a quick kiss then went off to join his science partner.
During the whole double lesson of Science I tried to sneak looks at Alex as he was doing the same but each time I tried my partner who goes by the name Roxy kept pulling my face back to her and our work. She did get a little angry with me “Riku why do you keep looking at him? Don’t we have something special?” she asked me with an angry tone, I looked at her and shook my head “We don’t have anything special Roxy! But Alex and I do” I replied to her with an equally angry tone but a lot louder in sound. I froze as I felt all eyes on me, I tried to gulp but it felt as if there was a huge lump in my throat. I took one look at Alex then ran out of the room, I kept running until I got to the end of the science corridor and sat down hugging my knees.
I sat there for a bit until I felt someone hugging me, I looked up to find it was Alex. I smiled sadly at him then hugged back “You feeling ok sweetie?” I heard him softly say while burring his face into my shoulder; I took a deep breath and answered with “Yeah, I’m sorry I yelled out in class getting you involved in it then running out.” I tried really hard at keeping my tears back Alex noticed the look on my face and gave me a big kiss. I was about to return the kiss when I heard Roxy calling out to me from down the hall. I pulled away from Alex and hid him behind me as I watched Roxy come running at me “I’m so sorry I got you upset little Ri” she said trying to sound very sweet but I could see it in her eyes that she wasn’t sorry at all. I just looked down at her not wanting to say anything to her.
I was about to get up when I felt her lips smack again mine. I was really shocked that I couldn’t get my body to move. As I stood there I could feel Alex behind me tense up a little as she broke away from the kiss. She started to head back to class as I turned around to see Alex looking at the ground with an angry clouded look in his eyes “Babe, what’s wrong?” I asked looking very concerned, he slowly lifted his head up to me and yelled “Why did you let her kiss you, did you like that kiss, do you not like me at all and it was all a lie?!” I took a step back feeling a little hurt that he would say that “Babe, you are the one for me not her, I couldn’t move when she kissed me because it felt like she was draining my life from me, you have got to believe me, I just want you” I responded with sadness in my tone. After saying that I stood there as I watched Alex’s expression change from angry to sadness, I looked away not wanting to see his face sad like that it broke my heart. I waited for the sound of him running away while crying but he didn’t what he did do was give me a big hug. I returned the hug then walked back to class together.
After science class was down, I helped Alex pack up his things then we went up to the oval to relax for a bit in the sun during lunch. It was lovely in the sun just spending some time alone with Alex, there was a nice breeze blowing and nobody really seems to bother us here. I watched as Alex snuggled up to me like at recess but didn’t fall asleep this time. He seemed to notice me looking at him and he looked up smiling at me with his beautiful lips. “I’m very sorry for yelling at you before” he softly said “It’s just I have never had someone special to……” I cut him off mid-sentence by placing a finger to his lips and smiling “I know how you are feeling, I forgive you with all my heart” I responded to him trying to sound as sweet as I could. He giggled a little at me before jumping up and kissing my lips lovingly, I was really happy to return that kiss. The rest of our lunch went on nicely and we have a nice cuddling session without being disturbed or so I thought.
