I had been texting this boy that I knew since middle school and we were pretty close friends. I had been crushing on him since my eighth grade year of junior high and I was aware of the fact that he had liked me at some point as well. We had several things in common and a lot of the same interests. We just had discussions about things such as the Harry Potter books or the Star Wars movies. We would occasionally ask each other for help with homework.
During my freshman year of high school, I met this guy who we'll call Joseph. He was a really nice person who I was able to befriend because we had mutual friends. Before I knew it, I began to have a crush on him. We hung out during lunch and played the PC version of Smash Bros together.
