She looks at me
I fake a smile so she won't see
What I want and I need
And everything that we should be
She's so beautiful
She's all I think about
And she's not something
I want to live without
-Teardrops On My Guitar by Taylor Swift (I kinda changed it for this story)
Ludwig watched how her face lit up when you finally understood the problem. "I think I got it!" He smiled while you figured it out on your own.
"Great job __________," he said.
You looked up, "Thanks for helping me with my math Luddy."
Ludwig blushed at the use of his nickname coming from you, "N-no problem."
As you could probably guess Ludwig had a crush on you. How could he not? You were kind, gentle, smart, and beautiful. You were his ideal girl.
Only problem? He was too shy to tell you. He felt like he was doomed to sit in the background and watch you live your life without him in it.
"So do you need a ride home?"
You stuffed your work in your backpack, "Nope I'm getting picked up."
He seemed taken aback, you didn't know that many people who had a car. "Who's picking you up?"
"My boyfriend," you said. With those words he felt like his heart was breaking. He was too late.
"R-really you have a boyfriend," he said almost choking on the words, "who is it. Anyone I know?"
You opened your mouth to answer, but you were interrupted by the sound of a car horn. You looked outside to see a red roofless car sitting outside.
Ludiwg's eyes nearly popped out of his skull. Inside the car was Romano Vargas. Now he not only felt jealous, he felt angry. That pizza eating foul mouthed Italian had the best girl in the world. Life just wasn't fair.
"Oi, bella are you coming?" came a shout from the car.
"Coming Roma!" you shouted. Turning back to Ludwig you have him a quick hug. "Thanks for helping me Ludwig, I really appreciate it." With that you ran outside and to your boyfriend.
I guess you snooze you lose.
