Jake: See you around...

I looked around, then shook my head, "No. We're fine babe." I gently planted a kiss on her lips.

Jasmine and I both knew we couldn't continue to kiss in public, though.

We sat in silence for a while. It was nice to be able to have a conversation with someone without even having to talk. I reached over and squeezed her leg, and she rested her head on my shoulder.

I smiled and patted her head.

Then, without warning, she spoke, "So...you never told me...how did you end up here?"

My eyes grew wide and I looked down at the ground. I can't tell her!! She'll dump me in an instant! But if I don't, she'll find out and then she'll dump me! I was panicking, but I kept a calm look on my face.

"Well, I..."

Suddenly, the bell rang. I swallowed my smile before Jasmine could see it and said, "Oh, well, I guess I'll see you around."

I got up and walked away from her without another word. Then I felt a hand grab me, I turned around, to be kissed by Jasmine.  "See you around..." she whispered, kissing my neck gently.

As she walked away, I felt like running after her. But I didn't. Instead I walked to my next class. I knew one day I had to tell her, I just hoped when I did, she'd understand.

The End
