Ah, school... You go to school on the very first day and you have no idea what's going on. Who is who and what your classes are.
Time passes, you're meeting new people and getting acquainted with others that at the beginning of the year you never thought you would have anything to do with them. But time goes by, and you get to know them better, and realize that they're really awesome people. You start taking an interest in them that could be for the better or for the worse. You find little ways to get to know them better, to hang out with each other. And then a hint catches your eye. And then another. You're so excited about these hints, but warn yourself not to think too much of it and get your hopes up. So you decide to give little hints back, easy enough to be mistaken for just friendliness. Days go by, and you're catching any little action that could be interpreted as something more than just being nice. From the beginning you thought they might actually like you. So you observe. And then, after a couple of weeks or so, you realize that you're starting to like them. It's unbelievable that you let yourself fall for them so easily. But you can't help it. You feel happy, yet tortured. It takes all your energy to resist blurting out something you don't want them to know... yet. And you realize, that even though your theory isn't good enough to prove, you feel content with the little level of friendship that you have together. And you realize that you can wait, although every day you're starting to like them more and more.
