My name is Lily Jackson and I’ll tell you why love is blind. I was 14 years old and in the eighth grade year. I hated eighth grade year because everyone had a boyfriend except for me. I was always the outcast. That all changed for me the second semester in eighth grade. My teacher Ms. Williams announced to the class that we were having a new student join room 411.

Ms. Williams went outside and said “Class meet Jerome” Everyone started whispering: “where is he going to sit”? “What if I don’t like him”? The boys stated” I might have to beat him up if he talks crazy to anybody”? I slouched back in my seat covering my face. When he finally walked in everyone’s mouth dropped. The girl’s eyes grew big and the boys were angry. He entered the class and said “hey everyone” in this nice deep voice.
Jerome was tall, handsome, had a clean fade, and beautiful straight white teeth. “He’ll sit next to Lilly” said Ms. Williams. I shouted BUT I ALWAYS SIT BY MYSELF. “This will give you time to open up Lilly” Ms. Williams stated in her eager voice. When Jerome sat next to me he smelt so good. I was nervous, but actually I was happy to sit next to the new boy. It was around the time of graduation and Jerome and I had become very close. We were attending the same high school.

A few weeks after graduation high school had begun and Jerome and I had almost every class together. Around senior year we grew even closer he would come pick me up for school and drop me off at home. All the girls wanted Jerome because he had a nice body, he was nice, and he gave everyone the benefit of the doubt. The most popular girl in the school was Jenna Hawkins. Every boy dreamed of being with her because she had long beautiful hair, no pimples, and was extremely smart. Her parents were millionaires so she was very spoiled. She drove a Bentley to school, which was all white and was a drop top.
One day Jenna approached Jerome and asked him would he like to go to homecoming with him of course he said yes because he never let people down. I was very angry because Jerome and I always attended homecoming together; it was our tradition. When Jerome had dropped me off he asked me who I was attending homecoming with. “I’m not going “I stated in my mad voice. “Are you mad? ” Jerome asked. “I responded NO! ” “Do you want to go with me? ” he asked. “No have fun with Jenna she’s real nice” I responded. He finally drove me off. I ran in my room and started crying.
The next day at school I found out that Jerome and Jenna started dating. I was extremely upset. There was a rumor going around that I liked Jerome. Jerome approached me and said “Do you like me? ” I stated “NO” He stated, “If you do I understand” I finally stated, “Yes I like you, I love you Jerome” “But we’re just friends Lilly and you know that” Jerome stated. I ran off filled with embarrassment. I stopped getting rides from Jerome and I completely cut him off. When Graduation came around I was isolated once again. I didn’t talk to no one. Jerome said, “I love you Lilly, but only as a friend”.
