She really wants to be with me
Soon it was finally lunch-time. I walked outside and Lily trailed along behind me.
'You can go eat with your other friends, it'll be embarassing for you if you eat with me, wont it?' I said in a urgent voice.
'Do you not want me to eat with you, Vlad?' She asked in a soft voice.
'No! I very much want to each my lunch with you! It's just, I don't want you to be bullied like me.' I whispered.
'I want to eat with Vlad and that my decision! I don't care what others think!' She said in a strong voice.
My eyes widened as I looked at her determined face, I smiled at her and beckoned her to the tree-bench which is where I would usually eat lunch alone.
'You smiled! Thats wonderful! Incredibly wonderful!' She said in a quiet but happy voice.
'You smiled at me. I'm happy.' She sighed. Then she sat down on the bench and opened her bag to pull her lunch out. I sat down next to her and got out my own sandwhich.
'Lily, can I ask you something?' I mumbled, she nodded and I put down my sandwhich, 'why is it your so determined to be my friend?'
She stooped eating her biscuits for a second and looked very thoughtful, 'because when I walked into the classroom, everyone was sitting away from Vlad and looking at him with scared expressions. I wanted to show them you weren't scary. And then I decided I wanted to be Vlad's friend. Even if it meant me not having any of my own.'
I was speechless. She would give up her whole school reputation for my friendship? Was that really possible? Would she really abandon all of that for one person?
'W-w-why?' That was the only word I could get out my mouth.
'Because I knew from the first time Iset my eyes on Vlad we were perfect for eachother. Like a puzzle. I knew right from the start that Vlad and I were gonna be best friends.'
