The next morning, I was pumped to start at my new school. Though, I was little nervous too. All night, I couldn't stop thinking about what was wrong with my brother so I decided that I was going to push him a little bit more. After I took a shower and got ready, I went to my brother's room to see if he was ready to get to school. Since my dad is going to the store to buy food today, we didn't have any breakfast food to eat before we leave so we have to eat at school which I didn't mind.copyright protection26PENANAiWxO1oQeyH

I went into my brother's room to see him sitting on his bed and staring down at the floor with a sad look on his face. I walked into the room and watched my brother.copyright protection26PENANAWAuDmSucR0

"Hey, you ready to go?"copyright protection26PENANAhlzAiJ5tNo

Logan looked up at me. "Yeah. I guess."copyright protection26PENANAY6kvUlUKAs

I walked over to the bed and sat down next to Logan. "What's wrong? You're not excited for school?"copyright protection26PENANArx3VbpOGCG

Logan shook his head.copyright protection26PENANAGT1fujZzNN

I sighed. "I know this move hasn't been easy but you'll meet new friends. Why don't you-"copyright protection26PENANAYMTiiNEcyf

"I don't WANT to meet any new friends!" Logan shouted as he stood up and stared at me.copyright protection26PENANAFZMIVX8JDK

I stared up at my brother, confused. "Logan..."copyright protection26PENANAqkErz8LzIz

"Just leave me alone okay?" He said, grabbing his bookbag and left the room.copyright protection26PENANAmGlgZE4DQC

Things were definitely NOT going to get any easier.copyright protection26PENANASwBFfxCnhg

When I got to school, I was confused on where everything is. I went by the office and got my schedule and now i'm having trouble finding my first class which is Science. I walked around and tried asking for directions but it seemed like nobody heard me or wasn't willing to give me any information. Typical. Just because i'm the new kid, people didn't want to help out. Just great.copyright protection26PENANAt6iPnhtrVk

"I know where the Science room is." I heard a female voice say. I turned around and saw a girl with black square framed glasses and black hair tied in two braids.copyright protection26PENANA3NRFs6c5tu

I smiled at her. "Hi. You know where my room is?"copyright protection26PENANAlAbWmk6geQ

She nodded. "I have that class too for first period. I can show you?"copyright protection26PENANASIXbxkt1Lo

"That would be great!" I grinned.copyright protection26PENANAmPcduEjHKM

"Cool. Follow me."copyright protection26PENANAb6nm2JG90V

I followed after the girl. She seemed pretty cool. She was wearing a purple hoodie with a Hello Kitty on it, purple skinny jeans and low rise purple converse. She looked pretty young. Like...fourteen or fifteen so it's a bit strange that she's in my Junior grade.copyright protection26PENANAZSDX4bhxc3

"Here we are. My name is Lizzie by the way. What's yours?"copyright protection26PENANAVyS8LmM54x

"Luis. Thanks for showing me where the room is, Lizzie."copyright protection26PENANARfDfCFZiPZ

She smiled. "No problem."copyright protection26PENANAeOSRLW23tf

I watched her walk into the room and go to her seat before walking in myself and up to the teacher. The guy was pretty burly and had white hair and a small white beard.copyright protection26PENANA6pOZxzmkFq

"Excuse me. I'm new here." I said to him.copyright protection26PENANARxFvMhaMA0

He turned to me and took my schedule, looking it over. While he was looking over my schedule, I looked around the room for a place to sit. Lizzie caught my eye and waved at me. I smiled and waved back. Too bad there wasn't a seat available next to her. She's pretty much the only person I know at this school. The school late bell rung and two guys walked in.copyright protection26PENANALPODGAAJE3

"You're late. Don't do it again." The teacher said.copyright protection26PENANAYLtMK0m6l2

I glanced over to see who the two guys were when I realized that the blue haired hipster is in my class. My heart started to pound in my chest. This is my chance to talk to him. To be friends with him. Especially since nobody is sitting next to him at a table. I watched the blue haired hipster until he noticed that I was looking at him. I decided to give him a smile but instead of him smiling back, he gave that 'don't care' look and stuck his earbuds in his ears. I didn't really think much about his reaction.copyright protection26PENANAwdzcImuT85

"You can go sit next to Walter, Luis." The teacher said then pointed to the blue haired hipster.copyright protection26PENANATTUIxBi7kX

Yes! I knew I was going to sit next to him. I walked over to Walter's table and sat down in the chair next to him. I continued to smile at him but he continued to ignore me until he noticed that I was staring hard at him.copyright protection26PENANAbjIE6sFty1

"What are you staring at?" He asked.copyright protection26PENANAv5e4iWqNPz

I blinked my eyes. "Oh...nothing. Just...the door." I wish I hadn't said that.copyright protection26PENANASJsNr0oK7I

"Uh huh." Walter looked at me like he was bored. I noticed that he had baby blue eyes.copyright protection26PENANAHi2pX8RDCq

"So...your name is Walter? Cool."copyright protection26PENANAE7wScPODCE

"It's Walt. I hate Walter." He quickly said as he sat back in his seat.copyright protection26PENANAcunFhOFGyN

"Oh. Okay. Well, i'm Luis."copyright protection26PENANAog5rF3zxGc

"That mean something to me?"copyright protection26PENANAYkjvcwk1aW

I blinked my eyes. Wow. This guy had some cocky attitude. Is this how ALL hipsters act?copyright protection26PENANAGmr41JSHpr

I sighed. "Forget it." Then I turned to the front of the class and listened to the teacher.copyright protection26PENANAuNHAfnDPVk

Lunch rolled by and I ended up sitting out in the courtyard with Lizzie. The courtyard consisted of a few tables for kids to sit and eat at. Students can also sit and eat lunch on the grass.copyright protection26PENANAFzo7DqQw7f

"I saw you trying to talk to Walt." Lizzie said to me.copyright protection26PENANAYB3Gci4Q7Z

"Yeah. What's the deal with him? We haven't even known each other for five seconds and he acted like he wanted me to disappear."copyright protection26PENANAa8SPthHk1A

Lizzie nodded. "That's Walt for you. He acts different around certain people."copyright protection26PENANAmHaKOOaElh

"What do you mean?"copyright protection26PENANATjTW06f4Wm

"If he doesn't know you, he acts sorta mean. If he's friends with you, he's really nice. If he likes you, then...well, I dunno." She explained.copyright protection26PENANA37uWWXeEig

"What do you mean 'like'? Like as in crush?"copyright protection26PENANAfEXqoLeyqA

Lizzie nodded. "I'm not sure how he acts when he likes someone. I don't think he has ever liked anybody before." She said then took a bite out of her sandwich.copyright protection26PENANAQjUKgUQvZN

"How long have you known him?"copyright protection26PENANAS3Um0RkevC

"I don't know him persay." She said with a mouthful. "We've gone to the same school since 8th grade. I haven't really seen anybody break his barrier." She said then swallowed her food.copyright protection26PENANAuKhsaFdpeE

"And he's a hipster? My brother, Logan described him and his friends as that." I said.copyright protection26PENANAZ5YTPeOGKN

Lizzie nodded. "He's your typical hipster. They don't really care about anybody. They feel like they 'can't be bothered' with anybody."copyright protection26PENANAtDQoZQfk5K

"Pfft. That's crazy." I said, taking a sip of my lemonade. "So, since he's never liked anybody, I guess you don't know his type huh?"copyright protection26PENANAXAue2FUg49

Lizzie shrugged. "I think only his friends would know his type. Why? Do you like him?"copyright protection26PENANAU4eSX47MLS

I sighed. "Why does everybody keep asking that? I just think he's...I dunno."copyright protection26PENANAAevqCvhSQn

"I think you should watch out for him. He's troubled."copyright protection26PENANACNY721MWhR

I was happy when school finally ended. I said goodbye to Lizzie and started to make my way home. Since the school wasn't that far from my new house, I don't really mind walking to and from school everyday. I sorta saw Walt throughout the day but like Lizzie said, Walt acted like he couldn't be bothered with me. I had more classes with him but in each class, he kept being late. I mentioned it to Lizzie and she told me that hipsters like him walk slow because they think they don't have any place to be at.copyright protection26PENANA5foBG17YTX

This whole thing with Walt is pretty confusing and complicated and yet, I kept finding myself drawn to him. Like, I can't stop watching him. There's just something about him that makes me want to be around him. Anyways, now I can stop thinking about Walt now that school is over. Once I reached home, I saw a distant figure at the beach. He looked like my little brother. I started to make my way over to the small figure. And once I got closer and closer to him, I noticed that it WAS my little brother. He was staring out into the ocean while a giant breeze blew through.copyright protection26PENANAmwLkDNlqKD

"Hey, Logan. How was school?" I asked once I reached him.copyright protection26PENANAhQPdbU6A8M

He shrugged. "It was okay. You?"copyright protection26PENANAKd29PJbXH5

"Guess who I saw?"copyright protection26PENANAU3BFoftJFd

Logan looked at me. "Who?"copyright protection26PENANAmX4bbf6iPe

"The blue haired hipster. His name is Walt. I also met a girl named Lizzie. She told me all about Walt."copyright protection26PENANA5As7JiQVfy

Logan nodded then looked back at the ocean.copyright protection26PENANA0aBBP0RjJx

"Did anything special happen at school?" I asked.copyright protection26PENANAx5uBhGRoYH

"Nope."copyright protection26PENANAD3h6b1o1WE

I sighed. I couldn't take this anymore. I NEED to know what's going on with Logan.copyright protection26PENANAzWObyEbpXV

"Logan, why can't you tell me what's going on with you? You seem so sad and angry. Why won't you talk to me?"copyright protection26PENANAWu1r6i7XH6

"I dunno. I guess I...I dunno."copyright protection26PENANAEk9VqkXPmT

"Do you think I won't understand? Because I will. You seem to be angry at Andy. What happened between you and him before we left?"copyright protection26PENANAuWQi8oWkOU

Logan just stood there, not saying anything. I watched my brother, closely, waiting to see if he was going to answer me. Then, he finally spoke.copyright protection26PENANAfLpgcvzktg

"He pushed me away."copyright protection26PENANAq7BA32V0Ri

I blinked my eyes. "Go on..."copyright protection26PENANAUleKEn9BHX

"I...I told him something and he ended our friendship."copyright protection26PENANAvWIVdVqMfT

I nodded slowly. "What did you tell him?"copyright protection26PENANA2F1Eg4Gc5y

"I told him..." He sighed. "I told him that I liked him."copyright protection26PENANAuZTJJy6S9N

Now I was completely shocked and confused.copyright protection26PENANAQFKyAXt1JI

"You liked him meaning...You had a crush on him?"copyright protection26PENANAVMoXqF16R7

Logan nodded. "Yeah. I told him in private and he just...he just..."copyright protection26PENANAEl6y5Q7bIh

"He just what?"copyright protection26PENANAYyWI7xGAzq

Logan started to sniff. "He said, 'My brother calls people like you faggots. My brother told me to never be friends with people like you.' That's what he said to me."copyright protection26PENANAjvcIsDouKf

I felt my heart drop. "Oh...Logan."copyright protection26PENANABpBIYGy5Rh

Logan shrugged and continued to sniff. "That's why I've been sad and pissed. He's the only guy I've liked and he just dropped me like that."copyright protection26PENANAmQQjzXQfyq

I walked up to my brother and hugged him. "I know. It's not easy."copyright protection26PENANAFSVSAovYSg

"Crushes suck." He said.copyright protection26PENANAeuFQcDwLJo

I nodded. "Indeed they do." Well, i'm glad that my brother finally told me what's been on his mind. My dad knows that i'm bisexual but he doesn't know that Logan is into guys too. Hell, I didn't even know that my little brother is into guys until now. Logan has always been the type to keep to himself. Now all I can do is comfort my little brother and be there for him while also trying to survive my new school and wanting to be Walt's friend and everything. Life sucks.copyright protection26PENANA25fSpOQf4o
