After school, Katie decided to ditch.
She could care less where Scott was right now.
She knew Scott would be looking for her, so she had no choice but to put her
sweatshirt even though the weather was sweltering.
She managed to get home without him seeing her.
She ran straight to her room and pulled out an old scrapbook.
It was filled with precious pictures of her childhood there.
She saw pictures of her in ballet with Leslie.
Looking back on these memories gave her some consolation.
She turned the page. There was a picture of her in Scott in the kiddie pool when they
were just three years old.
She couldn't bear to look, so she turned the page.
Yet again there was a picture of her and Scott. This time it was different.
This picture was of them back in Kindergarten. Scott was defending her in this
There was another boy. Scott had pushed him to the ground and Katie was on the
Their previous conversation was ringing in her head.
""Only in your wildest dreams..."
"Was if this is my wildest dream?
Then it's my worst nightmare.
So you liked it then.
Only a little
Which is another way of saying I'm special...
You're not gonna drop this are you?
the fact that for the slightest second our lips just happened to touch.
Oh... you mean the kiss, no, not until you admit that you might just love me as
much as I have always loved you."
"He's not gonna drop it." she said to herself.
"not until you admit that you might just love me as
much as I have always loved you." She repeated in her head.
"you might just love me as much as I have always loved you."
"I have always loved you"
She slammed the book shut and started crying.
"How can I be so blind!" she shouted to herself. "You don't even know how you feel!"
She reached for her phone.
She hadn't realized, but there was a note on her phone, written on a post it note.
"turn me on" it read. Katie rolled her eyes, she knew Scott had written it.
She turned her phone on.
Her welcome note had been changed.
It had used to say "Property of Katherine Marie Jackson"
Scott had changed it to
If you are reading this, then you must not know how you're feeling right now,
But i know how I feel.
I love you Katherine. I don't care if you have braces,or if you son't have the nicest
hair, or if you decide you don't love me. But You must know, I love you, i love you
so much Katherine Marie Jackson. And I know at one point in time you loved me. and i
will find a way to bring us together, or die trying."
Katie didn't think that was the welcome note.
Otherwise it wouldn't say 'reply'.
He had said this to her in a text message.
She decided it would only be polite to respond.
What is this about? You're trying so hard for something and you don't even know it's
gonna turn out right.
I will admit that, yes, I did at 1 point in time I may have had a slight attraction
to you But that was first grade Scott."
It only took him a minute to respond not even.
"You told me you liked it, you must love me a little."
"I don't know Scott."
"I need to know Katie"
"How about i give you a few days."
"That's not enough time."
"Fine a month."
"There you have a month to figure this out."
"u r such a pain!"
"hey if you have something to say, say it to my face!"
"Well where r u?"
"Where was i last time?"
"You didn't use the ladder again did you?"
"I'm not doing that again!"
"then where are you?"
"open the door."
