I like him, as more than a friend. He doesn't like me back I'm sure. He thinks I'm short with him, and I say things that don't make sense. But that's because he doesn't know. He can't know. I can't even tell him how I feel, let alone why I tense up when he gives me a simple hug. He asks why I look so angry when I see someone, and I'm not...I'm upset because when I see a boy walk by I'm afraid. I can't stop being afraid. He looks at me and I force a smile, and tell a silly lie about some stress at home, but I already know he knows I'm lying. How can I tell someone how I feel when every time he brushes against me I choke up and remember someone elses hands feeling me? when I can't hear the words 'Trust Me' without cringing? What can I do..
