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 protection7PENANAVKVLUX1LFo

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 protection7PENANAUbjMATURd0

"Hey, you ready to go?"copyright protection7PENANAAPAIdrhd22

Logan looked up at me. "Yeah. I guess."copyright protection7PENANAGXMCJGAKsf

I walked over to the bed and sat down next to Logan. "What's wrong? You're not excited for school?"copyright protection7PENANA8mrs91l3Sy

Logan shook his head.copyright protection7PENANA4toEbB6sP9

I sighed. "I know this move hasn't been easy but you'll meet new friends. Why don't you-"copyright protection7PENANAvw6h9PYJzq

"I don't WANT to meet any new friends!" Logan shouted as he stood up and stared at me.copyright protection7PENANAZIMqaWrw0k

I stared up at my brother, confused. "Logan..."copyright protection7PENANA44NsJZ4QrT

"Just leave me alone okay?" He said, grabbing his bookbag and left the room.copyright protection7PENANAZXq5ezVciv

Things were definitely NOT going to get any easier.copyright protection7PENANADhdqIomaUm

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 protection7PENANAqZFR5Uq07J

"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 protection7PENANAvK1JaJ7xT2

I smiled at her. "Hi. You know where my room is?"copyright protection7PENANATn2lFuvW1w

She nodded. "I have that class too for first period. I can show you?"copyright protection7PENANAEsvkkAeKBl

"That would be great!" I grinned.copyright protection7PENANAt66uPgeXO8

"Cool. Follow me."copyright protection7PENANAZIw23bwz7y

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 protection7PENANA5M1B6lck6N

"Here we are. My name is Lizzie by the way. What's yours?"copyright protection7PENANAGzTM4J3jGR

"Luis. Thanks for showing me where the room is, Lizzie."copyright protection7PENANArGAXID8fcg

She smiled. "No problem."copyright protection7PENANAOi3PT9b5uh

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 protection7PENANASbRMXWw1fc

"Excuse me. I'm new here." I said to him.copyright protection7PENANATHTtEB7NQk

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 protection7PENANA3EC6uvgGBK

"You're late. Don't do it again." The teacher said.copyright protection7PENANAYuWQgTNMV2

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 protection7PENANAZPJSjouqbk

"You can go sit next to Walter, Luis." The teacher said then pointed to the blue haired hipster.copyright protection7PENANAKfZnluSCbu

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 protection7PENANAm9Yj0edN18

"What are you staring at?" He asked.copyright protection7PENANAQ1XAThYnH9

I blinked my eyes. "Oh...nothing. Just...the door." I wish I hadn't said that.copyright protection7PENANAIsoIPKdImo

"Uh huh." Walter looked at me like he was bored. I noticed that he had baby blue eyes.copyright protection7PENANAcJxb2xqflr

"So...your name is Walter? Cool."copyright protection7PENANAobsmLmDJKl

"It's Walt. I hate Walter." He quickly said as he sat back in his seat.copyright protection7PENANASsOhbE2omo

"Oh. Okay. Well, i'm Luis."copyright protection7PENANAMz8kKaSaqd

"That mean something to me?"copyright protection7PENANACPo5b9sOSc

I blinked my eyes. Wow. This guy had some cocky attitude. Is this how ALL hipsters act?copyright protection7PENANAaLFY3QC5eZ

I sighed. "Forget it." Then I turned to the front of the class and listened to the teacher.copyright protection7PENANAu0yCkjNcue

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 protection7PENANARdBwbFmOKA

"I saw you trying to talk to Walt." Lizzie said to me.copyright protection7PENANANeBmRVFF8a

"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 protection7PENANATyhWmubj9f

Lizzie nodded. "That's Walt for you. He acts different around certain people."copyright protection7PENANA91tLxEqTtb

"What do you mean?"copyright protection7PENANAugq5Ch1iW9

"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 protection7PENANAsQHKN3fYnp

"What do you mean 'like'? Like as in crush?"copyright protection7PENANAexqHiXmJRP

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 protection7PENANAUm5krHBs0y

"How long have you known him?"copyright protection7PENANABspjdcntbK

"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 protection7PENANASpij6Ahsj8

"And he's a hipster? My brother, Logan described him and his friends as that." I said.copyright protection7PENANAheunyW5ao5

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 protection7PENANAJ0y8kMkHfv

"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 protection7PENANAs8UKr1lIuF

Lizzie shrugged. "I think only his friends would know his type. Why? Do you like him?"copyright protection7PENANARMTl9sifCG

I sighed. "Why does everybody keep asking that? I just think he's...I dunno."copyright protection7PENANAklHTu1FOJU

"I think you should watch out for him. He's troubled."copyright protection7PENANAkc2fWugicK

***copyright protection7PENANAX3wRpGjHVW

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 protection7PENANAogi69M8OBR

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 protection7PENANAJV3Ma0gqis

"Hey, Logan. How was school?" I asked once I reached him.copyright protection7PENANAbfwI7VpqDk

He shrugged. "It was okay. You?"copyright protection7PENANAm1BF7Krfy2

"Guess who I saw?"copyright protection7PENANA7iXb48bkzt

Logan looked at me. "Who?"copyright protection7PENANANKJktRfShT

"The blue haired hipster. His name is Walt. I also met a girl named Lizzie. She told me all about Walt."copyright protection7PENANAdEUOk2yLi7

Logan nodded then looked back at the ocean.copyright protection7PENANAOppMBuUMPt

"Did anything special happen at school?" I asked.copyright protection7PENANAgCe0WHRcA9

"Nope."copyright protection7PENANA6NO0B83aTm

I sighed. I couldn't take this anymore. I NEED to know what's going on with Logan.copyright protection7PENANAiIMIuncp91

"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 protection7PENANASqE6qBOiOo

"I dunno. I guess I...I dunno."copyright protection7PENANArUbfVNnYYh

"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 protection7PENANAkgZ6ZuubTD

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 protection7PENANAdM4RSvsHNg

"He pushed me away."copyright protection7PENANA5fbhv65T53

I blinked my eyes. "Go on..."copyright protection7PENANAbpkbwjF0vz

"I...I told him something and he ended our friendship."copyright protection7PENANAEIlJAde2U2

I nodded slowly. "What did you tell him?"copyright protection7PENANAj0ivhNBmHG

"I told him..." He sighed. "I told him that I liked him."copyright protection7PENANAqS6K4D4JEz

Now I was completely shocked and confused.copyright protection7PENANAjjhE2SShVN

"You liked him meaning...You had a crush on him?"copyright protection7PENANAjeNBK5plr7

Logan nodded. "Yeah. I told him in private and he just...he just..."copyright protection7PENANA2S09C4MGOr

"He just what?"copyright protection7PENANAg7KyLMqD4l

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 protection7PENANAqnAeZkjpGL

I felt my heart drop. "Oh...Logan."copyright protection7PENANAwIDwRgBEXp

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 protection7PENANA5dwQMiDcWH

I walked up to my brother and hugged him. "I know. It's not easy."copyright protection7PENANAyn48B3tVt9

"Crushes suck." He said.copyright protection7PENANAHZRlwJB7oz

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 protection7PENANAwtN3jzlWMh
