...This is going to be a bit fluffy, but seriously, I have little fluff in my life, so just know it's rare for me, even if you're sick of reading stuff like this. ^^
Anyway, to the point: I'm beginning to wonder if my friend's younger brother is...well...hitting on me a little bit. He's a year or two younger than me and very much the gentleman, so he's always been fairly solicitous - being polite, opening doors and such. I've known him since his tween years and while we've always gotten along, he's never shown any particular interest until lately - and even then, just a little more than usual.
But, well...awhile ago, he and I were participating in the same event, and while there, something occurred that was making me cry for absolute joy. When I realized the tears were coming, I sort of warned him that I was about to cry and informed him that I wasn't actually sad, because I know guys get uncomfortable when girls cry. I half-jokingly said I needed to find a shoulder to bury my face in (so people wouldn't ask questions), and he said with a smile: "Well, you can cry on mine."
...Well, I figured he was being a gentleman again, and I thought it would be awkward, so I just declined and ran to my dad instead. ...Now I'm wondering what would've happened if I'd taken him up on that offer. ;3
Fast forward a few more months. I don't see him or his sister often - roughly once a month when I and my friend stay at one another's houses - and I saw him yesterday, when we went to a performance of Les Misérables with a group of people we had worked with in theatre. After the performance...I was on Cloud Nine. The whole show was marvelous, and I was floating happily somewhere in my head and not paying attention to anything. I started to sing "On My Own" under my breath, and I glanced out the window just as I started the second verse...and laughed. It had gotten dark out, and the trees lining the avenue had lights strung through them - so "in the darkness" the trees really were "full of starlight!" I pointed this out to him laughingly, and he made this gesture to go on. I was like, "What?"
"Continue!" *Gestures again*
"Erm, what do you mean...?" *Head still full of fluff, so still totally clueless*
"The next line! 'And all I see is you and me forever and forever'!" *Gestures at the both of us*
"Ptsh!" *Pretends to smack, changes track of conversation*
...Since I was already floating, this comment of his didn't really take hold until today. The song actually says "...and all I see is him and me," not "you and me." And I remember enough to remember that he was only half-joking - if at all. AWKWARD. ^^;
And before anyone says I'm reading into it too much or taking it too seriously, believe me, I've already thought this and told myself this. I wouldn't have thought anything more of it if he hadn't been gesturing like that...I try to be level-headed about coincidences and to not jump to conclusions like this, and as a result, I can be rather dense about such things. However...erm...unless I'm really, really mistaken about the whole thing, it seems rather obvious. And slightly awkward. Oy. He's really sweet, so if I'm right and he's crushing on me, I don't really mind all that much.
Anyway, sappiness over! ...Back to normal life now....
Aww, that's so cute!
Can I ask how old you guys are now? You said tween before, so I'm guessing you're in high school?
Meh, I prefer not to speak of my age online - I prefer not to become depressed about how old I'm getting.
...We're both...well...I'm looking at colleges, if that's any indication. I promise you, we're not in middle-school. If my way of explaining the incidents it seemed rather immature for my age, just know that such things rarely ever happen in my life, so anything possibly pertaining to any sort of romance is treated like a treasure.
Awh, that's so sweet! *Smoosh*
...I know. The ironic thing is, I had a small revelation about a year ago that he was the only one of my current male friends that I could ever be comfortable with (like on a date)...probably because I'm already pretty comfortable with him as a friend and I know I can trust him.
...Aside from that, the whole incident has been on my mind for three days now, and I shall continue to chew it over until I get more conclusive evidence either way. x3
Aw, cute X3

You have no idea how jelouse I am of you. Le Mis!!! I love it I san gon my own for festival one year...best. song ever
...Yeah, and on top of that, one of my sister's friends recently teasingly called her "sweetness" and another friend of ours already has a really cute sweetheart. Ahh spring is in the air.... :3
The best part is, the reason we were able to go to Les Mis is because we did a high-school adaptation of the musical, and then one of the parents bought twenty tickets to go see it at the Peace Center! ...I was sort of lucky to score one - most of the tickets were taken up by the principal actors and the adults (I was just in the chorus, however, I was in the running for Eponine). I was totally ecstatic; the show was amazing.
And really? I'd like to hear you sing "On My Own" - it's such a lovely song.
