It was the stuff of teenage dreams. The jock and the brain were forced to sit together for the whole semester, far from their respective groups. Julian and I were that odd pair. I was so close-minded that when he first sat with me, I started counting the future tragedies. But as time went by, people started wondering why laughter and endless chattering often came from that particular spot. Yes, I had a crush on him. Him. I don’t know. However, he was the first person to say “You’re beautiful” and the first to offer friendship. I’m grateful for knowing him.
