Stephano's POV

"It's not true Melissa!" I yell.

Melissa and I were in our first fight, and so far she was winning.

"Tell me the truth Stephano! Did you, or did you not cheat on me?"

I would never cheat on Melissa. She was beautiful, a good fighter, and probably the sweetest girl at Amnesia High. I would never cheat on her.

"Tell me Stephano! Tell me the truth or we're over."

"It's not true, it's not true. I would never cheat on you Melissa. No other girl would date me."

"Is it because you cheat on them?"

"No! That's not why!"

"Then why Stephano!"

There was silence. My gaze turned to the pink carpet in Melissa's room.


"Because why?"

"Because of fourth grade."

"Fourth grade?"

"Yes. When I was in kindergarten, there was a girl in my class named Cecilia Valberg. She was the prettiest girl in my class, and all the other boys were jealous because she liked me the most. She was put in all my classes up until fourth grade. I was put in a different class than her, and I was relieved because I wanted to be the person I wanted to be without her knowing; a football player, a regular fourth grade boy. Cecilia was classy and had good manners. I met 5 other boys who were the total opposite of her. Rotten, dirty- minded, snooty little brats, and I became one of them. When Cecilia found out, she told her friends, who spread rumors about me. All of my friends didn't turn out to like me either. She turned out to be in all of my schools, and I had no friends. Cecilia finally moved to Minnesota during 9th grade, and all throughout high school I had no friends. Then I met Pete, Jerry, and Ryan who were my friends for 10th and 11th grade. Then you moved here. You liked me, I liked you, and everything changed for me. I made more friends than I ever did before, and if you leave me now, all of that will change. Please don't leave me Mel, then it will be like fourth grade all over again."

Melissa's cheeks turn bright red as soon as I look up at her.

"Oh, I'm sorry for yelling at you Stephano, I didn't know."

She scoots her beanbag chair over to mine and gives me a light and tender hug. I peck her lightly on the cheek and she puts her head on my shoulder.

'Melissa Kjellberg, it fits.' I think.

I just hope Melissa didn't hear.

'I love you.' I think into Melissa's mind.

"I love you too." She says aloud in response.

And this time I kiss her on the lips.
