The Secret Conversation

A few minutes later, Wes and Joe walked in, holding hands.

I stayed with Wes in her bedroom for the rest of the night. We didn’t say much. I just stayed with her.

“Okay,” I told her, “it’s about midnight. You should probably get some sleep.” She nodded, and went to the bathroom connected to her bedroom.

I went over to the door, but stoped to listen before opening it. I heard Nick, Joe, and Kevin talking quietly, secretively.

“I really like her,” I heard Nick whisper, “but I don’t know how to tell her.”

“Just go up to her and tell her!” exclaimed Kevin.

“I know! But, I’ve never felt this way about a girl before,” Nick was talking again, “she’s so…amazing.”

My heart stopped. Like a fool, my hand slipped and pushed the door open. I pretended not to have heard a thing.

Nick jumped when he heard the door creak. All three boys looked at me.

“What have you been talking about?” I asked.

“Nothing,” Nick jumped in. Joe and Kevin laughed.
