I could feel my heart sinking quickly as my crush turned away from me. The way that sharp "No" had burst from her mouth felt like a mini-torpedo crashing into my ribcage. I could feel the blood swirling in my head, my mouth going dry like it was turning into a desert. I said nothing, nodded to her back, and quickly turned and walked toward the bathroom to cry in a stall.
Stupid, stupid, stupid.
