It was a marvel that one small piece of notebook paper could cause him such heartache.
Smith had passed him a note in the hallway, while the two stopped to chat at Ross’ locker before going to separate classes.
Not expecting anything out of the ordinary, Ross had settled into his seat at the back of his English class.
He didn’t see this coming, but if he thought about it, the signs were obvious.
In Smith’s crappy handwriting was a short but to-the-point message.
Hey, so
I love you
Will you go out with me?
