Jake: That perfect girl.

"What are you doing here?" Jasmine said.

I knew why she was mad. She wanted me to follow her. She felt rejected... but she didn't understand. I wanted to follow her, but I couldn't. I mean, it's hard for me to move at all when you're kissed by one of the most beautiful girls in the world.

I didn't kiss her. Even though I very much wanted to. I just looked at the ground and said, "Jasmine, I want to ask you-"

Suddenly, I felt a hand grab my shoulder and it spun me around. My eyes were wide with surprise to see the Head Master in front of me.

"My sources tell me, Mr. Porlo, that you and Ms. Jasmine here are involved in a romantic relationship. You know how our school deals with such things."

"Master Goldstein, I assure you, Jasmine and I are just friends." I said, thinking quickly. I didn't look at Jasmine, but I was hoping that sentence didn't hurt her.

The Head Master looked at me closely then said, "One step outta line Mr. Porlo..."

With that, the Head Master was gone.

I faced Jasmine again, who was looking at the ground.

"Jasmine, please. Just listen to me for a second."

Jasmine looked at me with those crazy beautiful eyes, and I just couldn't take it. I gently leaned forward and planted a kiss on her lips. I didn't want a long kiss, I just needed something. I just hoped the Head Master didn't see. I looked behind me. And when I was sure no one saw, I faced Jasmine again. Jasmine was just staring at me. Then she said, "Okay, now I'm really confused."

"Jasmine, listen, I really do like you. A lot in fact. It's just... last time you kissed me, I was just frozen. I didn't know you had any feelings for me either."

Jasmine nodded in understanding.

"But now that I know..." I paused and looked around. Then I looked back at her and said, "I think we should hang out sometime."

Jasmine picked up on what I was saying immediately, "Of course. I'd love to Jake."

She wrapped her arms around my waist, and she pulled herself into me. She kissed me for at least ten seconds. Finally, we both pulled away.

Jasmine leaned forward and whispered, "Meet you at the cafeteria later, okay?"

I nodded, my head dazed. She ran off, that perfect girl, gone. I stared after her in complete admiration. I turned around and walked to my room. I sat there on my bed and put on some real clothes. I was wearing a button-up shirt and jeans.

After an hour of preparing myself, I finally left the room and went straight to the cafeteria.

When I got there, I saw Jasmine sitting at a table all by herself. I smiled and walked towards her. I sat down next to her and kissed her gently on the cheek.

She blushed and we both were silent.

Then Jasmine spoke.
