I guess that every school has a couple like this, that everyone else envies and looks up to.
I watch them as they dance, so close, so natural, the way they move as one, the looks they exchange every time they move apart, and I burn with desire.
She is gorgeous beyond words, small but curvy with great legs, eyes that most guys would be happy to drown in, and a smile that lights the world, so I think it’s fair to say that she could replace him with about ten different guys and still be the Golden Couple.
He’s a rugby player, same as me, although much taller, close to two metres in height and still skinny, still growing, with huge hands and feet, an easygoing attitude and a quick smile, but even his mum couldn’t say he was handsome.
But she has the pick of the guys and she’s picked him, says that he’s sweet, that he has hidden charms, whatever that’s supposed to mean.
The thing is, I know they’re not right for each other, so I stay in the background, patiently suppressing my jealousy, waiting for the day when she grows weary of him, and then, when the dust and tears settle, I’ll be the one who’s there, ready to comfort my poor gangling love.
