I wasn't really that comfortable staying in the student council office ever since I knew that Sir Greg will be our substitute adviser. I don't know, every time I see him that embarrassing moment with him keeps on playing in my head.
I'd like to scold myself for being so OA with that matter.
I groaned in frustration as I sort out the papers that I needed to sign.
"Miss Lemuel." I almost jumped from my seat when I heard that voice. I immediately looked up and saw my substitute adviser's face.
"Uhm yes sir?"
"I would just like to remind you about our student council meeting this afternoon," he said. I gulped and immediately nodded my head.
"Noted, sir." He nodded too before finally closing the door. I let out a heavy sigh and continue sorting the papers.
I took a small glance on my watch and I still have so much time before my next class starts, which is Philippine history by the way.
When I finished arranging the papers, I quickly gathered my things and stood. I make sure that the office was locked before I walked to my next class.
As usual, I could see and feel all the eyes that were looking at me. I just kept my poker face on and silently walked towards my building.
"Hey, Felice!" I almost rolled my eyes when I heard that voice. I walked faster just so he couldn't reach me, but his legs were just so long that his one step is equals to my five. Plus he's an athlete.
I rolled my eyes and turned to him.
"What is is Bran?" I asked. He just grinned at me.
"Well, nothing really. I'd just like to ask if you're up for some review later?" My eyes squinted.
"Since when did you have time for review?" I sarcastically asked. He let out a small laugh.
"C'mon, Fel. Am I not entitled to change?"
"Huh. Very funny joke, Bran. Just review on your own and stop bothering me." I didn't wait for him to reply and immediately walked away.
Tss. That guy is so annoying. He's been bothering me since high school. He's one of those good for nothing fuck boys who just wants to get in your pants. Sorry for him, I am not going to fall for his trap. He's like a baby. I don't want to be one of his girl toy. Never.
I raised my brow when I noticed that almost all of my classmates were already in the classroom when I got in.
Wow. They surely want to impress Prof. Greg huh. I shook my head and went to my seat immediately. Not long after, sir finally came in. And there's this unusual beating inside my chest again.
I kept on reminding my self not to attempt to sleep or even just yawn. My god. I don't want to be caught again!
"Good morning, class," Sir Greg greeted. We greeted back in chorus.
"Take your seats."
We all sat.
I made sure that I was sitting straight and not slouching so I would be awake the whole class. Gosh. What can I do? History is not my thing.
"Okay, so for today, I will give you an advance project to be passed before your midterms. This will be my requirements for your clearance signing. Beadle, please distribute. This will be individual."
I heard my classmates groaning upon hearing the word "individual". I rolled my eyes. I even heard one of my classmates bargaining with sir to make the project by group or at the least, by pair. Why are they so obsessed with group works? That's not even equal at all because whether you admit it or not, not all in the group works. Hello, reality.
I shook my head and just read the paper. They really tried their best to talk to sir about the project but sir was firmed with his decision on making it individual. Thank, God.
It was the first time that I really didn't sleep in history class. Well, I was really sleepy but I forced myself not to. I even took down notes just to keep myself busy.
I glanced at my wristwatch. Thank god it's almost time.
"So that's it for today. Don't forget about the readings that I assigned to you. Dismissed."
I slowly gathered my things and put them in my bag. As usual, I waited for my classmates to all go out before I did.
"Miss Lemuel." I stopped on my tracks when heard that voice. My heart started thumping so fast. God. What did I do again? I didn't sleep!
"Yes sir?" I asked, trying my very best to compose myself. He just smiled and put his bag on his laptop.
"You didn't sleep," he said, still smiling.
I didn't know if I should be offended or what. His smile was just too innocent. I heaved a sigh and suppressed a small smile.
"Sorry about last time, sir," I said, but he just laughed at me.
"Nah. That was not a big deal, Miss Lemuel. C'mon you're too uptight. I was just making the mood light. I know my subject can really be boring so I refuse to be boring too." He let out a small laugh again. "I hope you give the subject a chance. It's as beautiful as your favorite subject." He flashed a smile, showing his perfectly white teeth.
I was dumbfounded for a second that when I got back to reality he was able to go already. I felt my heart beating so fast again. I don't know, but I feel something odd about his last statement.
Gosh, what the hell is happening with you, Felice?!
I shook my head in frustration and stomped my feet. I heaved a deep sigh before walking out of the classroom. Another embarrassing moment! Wow, Felice, just wow!
I was nervous while patiently waiting for my members to arrive for the meeting. Sir Greg wasn't there yet, so I really thanked the heavens above. I don't know how to face him anymore! Gosh, I should really not embarrass myself in front of him anymore. I don't even know why I always react like that whenever he would talk to me.
Get yourself together, Felice!
"Are we all complete? Shall we start?" My eyes widened when sir suddenly came in. I sat properly and cleared my throat.
Don't embarrass yourself again, Felice.
I kept on reminding myself as I stood and went to the front.
"Good afternoon. Our agenda for today will be about our upcoming university acquaintance," I started and looked at my members. I avoided Sir Greg's gaze, but I can feel him looking at me.
I cleared my throat once again. No more embarrassment, Felice. Get your shits together!
I stayed up late that night because I have so many readings in Philippine History. I also have three papers to make for my communication subject and I still have to answer queries from the dean's office about our upcoming acquaintance."Felice, you're not asleep yet?" I turned around and saw mommy and daddy who just went in.I smiled and stood."Good evening, mom, dad," I greeted and kissed them both on the cheeks."Why are you still up? It's getting late already," mommy said. I just sighed and shrugged."I still have a lot of things to do, mom. Don't worry I'll sleep before 12," I assured her. She stared at me for a bit, but eventually nodded her head."Okay, we'll go upstairs already, okay? Go to bed after.""Yes, mom."I heaved a sigh and went back to my chair. I could do these in my room, but that will just make m
I was silently scolding my self as I continued to read our second reading for phil. history. I was cramming already! I wasn't able to finish reading it last night because I got so distracted about Sir Greg's message, I don't even know why!I groaned in frustration as I continue to scribble through the words, but I ended up re-reading it again. The concepts won't get in my head and it's frustrating me more! Gosh, Felice! Why are you so distracted?!I took a quick glance on my wristwatch and I barely have 5 minutes before class. I threw a dagger on my classmates who were being so noisy. They're just adding to my frustration! I cannot concentrate!"Good morning, class." I froze on my seat when I heard that voice.Damn it! It was Sunday. My cousins from my father's side would usually visit our house during this day. Mommy has declared Sunday a family day so we really have no choice but to gather here in our house."Felice! Why aren't you dressed yet?! You cousins will arrive soon!" I heard mom yelling.I almost rolled my eyes and closed the book that I was reading. I stood up and went inside the house. Mommy is with our maids in the garden, preparing our lunch. It's still quarter to 9, but it has been our tradition to go to mass every Sunday with the whole clan.I went to the kitchen and just grabbed a sandwich before heading back to my room. I sat on my bed and ate my sandwich first.I got my phone and messaged my cousin, Karrie. We're just a small clan actually. Daddy has two more siblings, a girl and a boy.

I was becoming weirder ever since I had that talk with Karrie. Oh my god. I have a crush on my History Prof!I was already uncomfortable around him before, but it got worse now. I couldn't even look at him anymore! That realization made me more uncomfortable.I gulped when I saw him from my pheriperal view. It was our first quiz and I hate it because he keeps on walking around! I feel like my heart will go out of my chest whenever he stops beside me! Why does he even need to stop?!Ugh! Felice, you need to concentrate! Oh my gosh. This is a quiz!"Five minutes left."My eyes widened when I heard his voice. I quickly looked at my test paper and I still have three more question
I was not in a good disposition when I went back to the student council office. I could even still feel my face burning. I almost finished my iced milo on the way here.I slumped my back on my swivel chair and put my milo on the desk. I covered my face with my two hands and shouted on it.Oh my gosh, Felice! Oh my gosh! I don't think I can still have a face to show him after that! I know it was an accident, but heck! I could already picture my embarrassing face!Why the heck did that happened?! Why are you so clumsy, Felice! Ugh! This is so frustrating!I had to almost bury my face on my desk just to get that scenario out of my head. I didn't know for how long did I stay in that position. I just sat properly when I
I wasn't moving the whole ride. I kept on cursing the turtle like traffic. We were almost not moving! The heck! It's so awkward already!I heaved a sigh and sat properly.I swallowed the lump in my throat and bit my lip. Gosh. I could almost hear the crickets in his car.I just focused my eyes on the window.I took a deep sigh and slightly hugged myself because the aircon of his car was so strong.I bit my lip and just kept my head down."Are you cold? You can use my jacket. Here…"I almost jumped on my seat when he handed me his jacket. I gulped and gave him a small smile.
My hands were shaking as I affixed my signature on it. I closed the folder after and stared at it for some seconds.I bit my lip and took a deep sigh. Oh come on, Felice. You're just gonna give this to him. For god's sake calm down! I clenched my fist and swallowed the lump in my throat.I sighed and stood. I fixed the folder and went out of the office. I walked to the Arts and Letters building. The faculty was just on the ground floor so, I wasn't stuck with the bulk of people waiting for the elevator.I took another sigh before I knocked and opened the faculty's door. I sighed and slowly enteered the room. I gulped when no one was there.My forehead creased and finally entered the room. I didn't know where Sir Greg's table so I had to search for his name on the nameplates on the table."Miss Lemuel?" I almost jumped in shocked when I heard that voice.My eyes widened and I immediately looked at my side. There
"Are you okay?" I heard Bran asked.I sighed and gave him a small smile."Yeah, don't mind me," I said and focused on my food again.We were in his favorite french restaurant. And ever since what I saw in the parking, I wasn't really in the mood.I just feel sorry for Bran. Sure, he's annoying, but he asked me out politely and the least thing that I could do is to actually enjoy and treat him well. But I just cannot force myself bring back my mood.Damn, Felice. What the hell is happening with you? So what if he's with someone? So what?"Hey, you really okay?" Bran asked again. I sighed and looked at him apologetically."I'm sorry, but can I go already? I'm really not feeling well." I bit my lip as I said that.I saw his face saddened, but he still managed to give me a small smile."Tss. Of course. But then, you'll have to eat with me again." I almost rolled my eyes, but in the e
