A FOUR LETTER WORD by Michelle Lee
Zoey has had a crush on Evan since they first met in high school, but has never acted on those feelings. She has always felt she wasn’t Evan’s type and their friendship means too much to her to jeopardize. At a Halloween party, Zoey meets Griffin, something Evan isn’t too happy about. Zoey and Griffin’s budding relationship grows into something Zoey never thought she would find, that four letter word, love. When she is ready to marry Griffin, Evan decides to let his true feelings be known. Ultimately, Zoey has to decide, marry the one the currently loves, or be with the one she’s always loved.
There is chit-chat all around us. People
talking about what they did over the summer, what classes they have. My
attention is suddenly drawn to the door, as if I had no choice but to look, and
when I do, I see the most beautiful boy I have ever seen in my entire life. His
looks rival that of any movie star. His hair is a mess on top of his head, it’s
nearly jet black, with purplish highlights shining in the fluorescent lights;
it slightly hangs in his eyes. It looks
super soft and I just want to run my fingers through it to find out. His jeans
hit low on his hips, and the gray t-shirt he's wearing hugs his torso, showing
off his lean, muscular form. His eyes scan the room, and he nods to someone off
to the right, making his way towards them. Never seeing me. My heart is racing.
"Erica, who is that?" I nod to
the beautiful boy as he makes his way to his seat.
"Oh, that? That's Evan 'the jerk'
Harris." She doesn't hide the disdain in her voice.
"Well, that's what I've heard. I've
never met him, but from what I've heard, he's a piece of work."
