Please Love Me

(0) I was sitting on the roof. Cold, I wanted to go inside, but something was stopping me. I was too hurt to go inside, not exactly physically, but mentally. I was slapped by the one person who I cared for more than anything in the world and I thought he knew that. Sure, I was kind of fighting with a friend of his(it was a girl, but he didn't like her like that), but he didn't have to go there. I wasn't going to really her hurt too much-I just wanted to scare her and protect him at the same time. This roof doesn't help much either, but I have no where else to go. What? I sense somebody behind me. Who's that? Oh,it's him. I'm sure he's going to apologize-he has a really kind, pure heart. Oh, how I love him.

(1) Love who you need to tell some names. (A.H. Your mystery person ask Jaz for my name, Age 8 to 12, 10/7/2003 10:00:56 PM, Please_Love_Me)

(2) Instead he'd come to here an apology, from me? Who does he think he is? The man I gave my heart to took it apon him self to squish it like a bug. "What do you want?" I asked in my sassy tone. There was no doubt about, he was really mad. This time, for the first time, he was mad at me. "Look you tired to ruin my life! What is it to you if I go and hurt somebody or they hurt me? Why would it matter to you?" he seemed so surious and, well, evil. But had to tell the truth. It was time I told the truth. It had to come out."Well, maybe I..." come on I can do it!" Maybe care about you! Are you that blind? For years I've loved you and tired to protect you from all evil! I know how I've felt all my life, but I never could bring myself to say it, I love you!"

(3) "maybe you were just a game for me, something to keep me going until i found someone better, maybe you're just a fool" he spat back at me. I felt my heart break as he spoke those words. "is she that someone better?" i replied through my barely concealed pain, referring to the girl from earlier. (Rhiann, Age 13 to 18, 12/1/2003 9:50:12 AM, Please_Love_Me)

(4) "I really love least try?"i whispered."show me then,action!i need action!"he shouted at me.My eyes were filled with could he do this to me?I was hurt.Really hurt. "okay,fine..."i murmured. The next day in school was hard,i had to please him all the way."Help me carry these books,"he told me.I offered myhands out,he put the huge pile of books on me.The pile of books almost break my hands.He touched my arm and squeezed it.."i'm so sorry...i didn't mean it..."he apologised to me...i was so touched....

(5) while I was sitting by myself,all the words that he had said to me was like a thunder that struck my ears.At vthat point in time,I felt myself drowning in the deep blue sea. (iqah, Age 8 to 12, 1/5/2004 9:22:09 PM, Please_Love_Me)

(6) maybe she is better than me. But i really love you so can you do this to me! He went off and tears filled my eyes. Next day in school, it was difficult for me to communicate with him. I asked him if he was free this afternoon to catch a movie with me. (anna, Age 8 to 12, 1/5/2004 9:22:10 PM, Please_Love_Me)

(7) "Well... maybe I'm better than her"I thought to myself. (Vivien, Age 8 to 12, 1/5/2004 9:22:44 PM, Please_Love_Me)

(8) "Well... maybe I'm better than her"I thought to myself. (Vivien, Age 8 to 12, 1/5/2004 9:22:46 PM, Please_Love_Me)

(9) I couldn't stop thinking about him. Eventually I could stand it no more and just cracked. In the middle of a lesson I just started crying. No one knew what I was on about. I couldn't stop crying long enough to answer the teacher's worried questions. (Sarah, Age 8 to 12, 1/10/2004 8:58:58 AM, Please_Love_Me)

(10) The teacher thought I might be ill so she sent me home. When he called to see if I was going to the movie my mum answered that I wasn't very well. That was what I told her. I couldn't believe I had lost my chance to make things up with him. (StoryLover, Age 8 to 12, 1/10/2004 9:01:17 AM, Please_Love_Me)

(11) I stayed home moping around for nearly a week. I pretended to mum I had a real bad stomach ache. I would lock myself in the bathroom. Mum thought I was sick, but I was using it as an excuse to cry. (Cleo, Age 13 to 18, 1/10/2004 9:03:21 AM, Please_Love_Me)
