Zarina and her best friend Alicia were just hanging out on a Summer day, just before school started. Typical teenage girls, they were busy on snapchat. Zarina was particularly interested in this one boy - a hockey player - and she had a huge crush on him. Of all the boys in her school, he was her favorite, her school crush.
She thought he was so sweet, and cute - first love. And, to make things more complicated, they were kind of friends, helping each other with homework sometimes and sitting together at lunch. More than anything, she wanted them to be boyfriend and girlfriend, a couple.
Alicia leaned over and saw his snapchat on Zarina's phone and came up with the bright idea of confessing her crush to him. At first Zarina said "no way," she was scared of getting rejected, scared that he would tell her that they were just friends and she would die of embarrassment. A confession could be an epic fail. But Alicia was very convincing - and, finally, convinced Zarina to do it!
Zarina was so nervous that Alicia finally grabbed the phone and started texting for her. She wrote a long text "I've liked you for a really long time now, and hopefully we can get together..." a real confession of love! At the end she wrote, "But it's okay if you don't like me," and Zarina jumped out to grab the phone - "WAIT! Before you send it I want to read it" - but it was too late. Alicia had sent the message.
Zarina freaked out! She was hyperventilating - all of her massive second thoughts were too late! She spent the next two hours panicking - staring at the phone - waiting for a reply, anything.
Suddenly, her phone chirped that there was a response! Zarina snatched up the phone but couldn't bring herself to read what he had written. She wanted to know, but she also didn't want to know - not if it was terrible news, not if confessing her love to her crush made things awkward and with the whole "let's just be friends" thing - she couldn't handle that! So, Alicia grabbed the phone and told Zarina that she would read it first and let her know if it was good or not good.
That sounded like a plan. Alicia opened the snap and Zarina hid in a bush, too nervous to know what to do, but also excited. After a minute Alicia looked up with a sad face - NOT GOOD - and all she said was "Girl, I'm really sorry." Fail!
At first Zarina thought she was joking, which would be in character for Alicia, and so Zarina said "Okay, c'mon. What does it say." And so Alicia read it out loud: he didn't like her the same way - DID NOT - and then he said it, the friend thing - Zarina was heart broken. She wanted to undo the whole thing so badly - wished she hadn't done it.
She had to answer him, so she said it was no problem, but inside she was a mess, crying. She was so embarrassed. In fact it was one of the most embarrassing moments of her life, an embarrassing fail. And lets face it, embarrassing fails are not something we will ever forget. And this embarrassing story was no exception.
After school started they weren't awkward together, and they still talk and hang out sometimes, but, she still wishes that he had returned the crush, and honestly, she still has a major crush on him! Love story or epic fail? Well, a little bit of both.
