I just thought it made me seem really great that someone had a thing for me
Then she went "what's your name again?" tonight
Many years ago, when I was but a callow and awkward lass, I was sitting at the back of my local library, minding my own business, reading a book about Lenin, when I heard a familiar voice in conversation with the librarian.
Without looking up, it slowly dawned upon me that a guy I had a major thing for had come into the library, spotted me and, thinking I couldn't hear from such a distance, had started telling the (attractive, youthful) librarian about how he was embarrassed by my infatuation with him, and he really didn't fancy me. The librarian was going "Aw, that's a shame, you should go and talk to her anyway".
So, over he comes and we exchange pleasantries for a few minutes, me dying inside all the while. Just before I crawled out of the library, I managed to lift my head for long enough to catch the librarian's eye very pointedly as I said "Thank you" and took my book from her. She went bright red, realising that I must have overheard. I walked out of the library into the rain-sodden, dismal street and wanted to do a Reggie Perrin, or maybe just die, I couldn't decide which.
I couldn't bear to read the fucking book when I got it home. How anyone gets through their teenage years is a mystery to me...
Tomorrow I drink

that she looked at you like a little brother when you finally decided you liked her
I just enjoyed having her as a maybe
