True stories: He calls me his girlfriend...

BUT I've got something else to say

True stories: He calls me his girlfriend...

My name is Janet, and recently my parents moved to a new town for work. And so, I had to leave my friends behind and start over in a new community.

After the move, I was so nervous about meeting new people. But then, I met this boy named Francis at school.

He came up to me during lunch break to introduce himself. We gisted afterwards. He told me all the things I needed to know about the school: the friendly teachers, the strict ones.

Soon, it became a normal thing for us to hang out during break. And sometimes we would walk home together.

One day, as I was walking to school with a group of friends from my class one of them asked me, "So when were you going to tell us you are Francis’ girl?”

I was shocked! Yes, I had a crush on him. However, he was not my boyfriend. I asked her where she heard that news. She told me she overheard him telling his friends during Math class.

I was so mad that I couldn’t talk for the rest of the way.

Initially, my plan was to never speak to him again. But then the next day, I saw him at lunch.

I realised it was important for me to say my mind. So, I went up to him in front of all his friends. I told him what I heard and made it clear that I was not his girl. I even took it a step further and told him that if he didn’t tell people the truth, we would stop being friends.

He admitted the truth to his friends and they made fun of him for weeks. Even after this, I was still annoyed with him.

I felt like he was trying to decide for me. And that’s something I don’t like. I have a mind of my own. And if he had waited, who knows, we may be dating now. But he didn’t, and that’s his loss.
