“Oh man!” was the first thought to come into my mind when I saw Caiden.

He was the popular college guy; I was the not-so-known, high school sophomore. I honestly liked him as a person, but I didn’t want to give him the indication that I felt anything beyond that. So I looked down at the floor as I walked past him, as he looked up with a friendly smile.
