How To Know If Your Crush Has a Crush on You Too
Here’s the secret to finding out if that special someone you like, likes you back! Here’s an excerpt: “Hey,” Zymura leaned toward Lilly and whispered. “Don’t look now, but someone’s peeking at you from that stack of books over there.”
“Who?” When she turned to look, Zymura stopped her by cupping her chin.
“It’s Murosky Skaggs. Don’t let on that we’ve seen him.” Zymura bent close and pretended to brush something away from Lilly’s eye. “I think he’s interested in you.”
“He’s not interested in me. Curious maybe, but definitely not interested.” Lilly suppressed a sigh, struggled with her curiosity of him, and worried what her hair looked like.
“What in the world did you do to him?” Zymura said, glancing over Lilly’s shoulder at him.
“What are you talking about?”
“I think he’s following you because he has a crush on you.”
Lilly groaned. “You said he has a girlfriend.”
“My information could be wrong about the girlfriend. What if he’s secretly in love with you?” Zymura said, lowering her voice and looking worried.
“Then I’ve got a stalker,” Lilly countered.
“He’s really cute. Too bad he has such a bad reputation. Okay, he’s talking to someone. Go ahead and take a peek at him,” Zymura whispered.
Lilly turned and glanced casually over her shoulder as if completely unaware of his presence.
The wicked grin on Murosky’s face turned meaningful when he met Lilly’s gaze.
She rolled her eyes with disgust, trying to disguise her excitement. “Great. Just what we need. A spy!”
From behind Murosky, Miss Bonaventure entered the library through the room’s gothic archway. The headmistress threw a quick glance around the room, located Professor Banks sitting at the main desk, and made a beeline for him.
“We don’t have a spy,” Zymura corrected her. “You’ve got a big problem, or a secret admirer.” She reached up and slid a yearbook from the shelf.
“Some secret admirer! He isn’t very good at keeping himself a secret,” Lilly muttered, opening the front cover of her mother’s yearbook and putting Murosky Skaggs firmly out of her mind. The bindings made a quiet crackling sound.
