“Hey Livi!” Ahhh he said my name! “Whats up?”
“I was wondering if I could have a word with you. Something I need to say.”
I took him by the hand and led him upstairs. My heart was pounding so hard I could feel it in the tips of my ears.
“So whats up? Everything OK?”
I couldn’t believe I was doing it. Miss tongue tied was about to let the cat out out of the bag. I took a deep breath.
“There you are!” I have been looking all over for you.”
“Its almost time for the countdown! You’re gonna miss it.”
“Oh! One sec. What was it you were going to say Livi?”
“Just…wanted to say… happy new year!” *insert awkward laugh here*
NO! No no no!!! That was my chance! I blew it! I had officially run out of opportunities. I had failed myself. This was the worst new years ever. I bit into my lower lip as I followed the pair back down the stairs and out into the living room.
Everyone was gathered around the TV as the countdown started. I chose to stay way back and as far away from the heartbreak as I could.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
Happy new year…
